    I got these, but as i said earlier, the complete kit contents were not displayed:

    Yes, but as i think someone else mentioned, the display was intended to show the new features, not necessarily the entire kit contents. They also had the body and some random pieces to the upcoming ’48 Ford Coupe. Even with limited viewable contents, that kit too looks like it will be a winner.

    Attended the NNL West Event today. Ed Sexton was there with a test shot sample, looks pretty nice to me! See for yourself:

    Stop fixating on the error, consider this as a building option: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YBVeSEU7RQ

    Merry Christmas to all, here at the forum. Here's a card i did a few years back, "Elves prepare new 'sled' for Santa."

    Great topic and posts: Somebody showing great attention to detail, and others providing excellent commentary and insight. Thanks everybody, very refreshing, I enjoyed this!

    Harry, I didn't know a lot about these until I met the owner of this example who shared the story about "Shooting Brakes" and this car specifically. Your build captures them perfectly! Nice job!

    Too bad you weren't working in the Ford design studios when the M II was being conceived. It might not have the stigma it does today if you had. Nice redesign and build. Tail end is especially nice!

    Bully for you!! I mean it. It's because of pioneering folks like you that the technology gets better and better. Is this the ideal way to produce a model? Certainly not, and I'm certain you'd say as much. But because people like yourself are willing to invest the time and energy in figuring it out, the rest of us benefit. This technology is here to stay, and will only get better (and easier to use). Stay the course, sir, I'll be watching.

    Amen!! I've got a 2013 Camaro and love it, was even thinking I'd "re-up" after this one was paid for, but having seen the 2016, there's not a chance. I'll buy a Mustang before I lay down cash for that abomination. GM, WTH?!

  13. Watertown added a post in a topic What was your 1st 1 to car   

    1969 Pontiac LeMans Custom S Convertible. I was a Junior in High School in 1977 when I purchased this car for the princely sum of $350.00. Spent the following summer restoring it with the help of a buddy, and my dad who did the body work and final paint. My buddies and I had some great times in that car!

    It's Winter, 1961, and my mom and i keep an eye on dad as he assembles an AMT ’37 Ford sedan. (Note the can of LustreChrome).

    Loved that "made for TV" movie: Robert Culp, Ed Begly Jr., and Pernell Roberts as the bad cop who redeems himself in the end. Your model takes me back to the first time I saw it. Nicely done!
