    Great topic and posts: Somebody showing great attention to detail, and others providing excellent commentary and insight. Thanks everybody, very refreshing, I enjoyed this!
  2. Watertown added a post in a topic 1937 Rolls Royce "shooting brake"   

    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!

  3. Watertown added a post in a topic Mustang II Shelby GT500KR ?   

    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?!

  6. 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!

    Harry, I've seen John's in person, and it is beautiful, and now having seen yours, I can say without hesitation, you've got nothing to hang your head about. This is a first rate build. Thanks for sharing, these are the examples I most enjoy. Well done!

    Well done!! Great execution!
  11. Watertown added a post in a topic Moebius `65 Plymouth Satellite   

    That's cool!! Consider this one as well...
  12. Watertown added a post in a topic 1/25 Galaxie Ltd. '46 - '48 Chevrolet Aerosedan   

    Country Club trim option IN THE BOX, maybe I should have waited. I created this one using sheet stock and home-made decals, back when the aerosedan was first released.

  13. Watertown added a post in a topic Some of My Models from NNL West 2015   

    Paul, I was there and was extremely impressed with your builds. I did my best to sop up the drool before anyone noticed.

    Thanks for the explanation, Vince. Again, love the event and wouldn't miss it for anything, your "committee" did a spectacular job as always.

    Just returned from the show and, as always, I enjoyed my time there. The host club does a great job and I thank them for their collective efforts, year after year, creating a one-of-a-kind experience. One thing I found puzzling, however, was the condensed vendor/swap space—about 75 percent of what they've had in previous years—making it much more difficult to maneuver through and see vendor's offerings. I opted to wait until the lunch hour to venture over there. There was additional space available, but for some reason it was blocked off. Anybody know why? Again, love the show, but would respectfully suggest that next year that space be re-allocated to the vendors.
