      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Got my parts from Ken Kitchen today. WOW! Nice quality. I have been leery of resin due to poor quality parts in the past, but nice stuff! Anyone wanting quality products. I strongly recommend Ken Kitchen, Kitchen Table Resins.

    Thanks Chuck. I just received my 48 kit today and already "fixed" the rear window. My Dads truck is a combination of various F1's, but the cab is a 51. I just placed the order with you Ken for the parts. I will used the dash on my dad's truck and the grille and valance on a future build as his truck has a 48 front end. Thanks to everyone for the help. Now I just hope I can get it all done by March 11th!

    Thanks Jim B. I could not remember who had it. Sent him an e-mail today. Trying to build a scale version of the truck my dad is piecing together. Trying to find everything fairly quickly as I want to have the truck ready for when my dad comes out in a couple of months.

    51 Ford F1 Conversion
    Looking for the parts (or as many as I can get) to convert a Revell 48 F1 kit to a 51. Mainly looking for the cab, hood and dashboard. Trying to replicate my Dad's F1 that was a combination of 48, 50, 51 and 52 F1's. Also looking for 52-54 Passenger car hubcaps for the same as well as a 50 passenger car steering wheel and horn ring. Thanks in advance.

    Although I am a Ford guy I have always liked the lines on the 37 Chevy. Don't see too many at Hot Rod shows though. Here is one I did last year. Even put a Ford motor in it to help balance out all the Ford's with Chevy motors in them. Looking forward to seeing yours come together.
    Sorry for the bad pics. My old phone had a lousy camera.

    Great looking build. Reminds me of my first car, a 1948 Ford Coupe. One note on the dash is that on;y the center trim should be chrome (refer to your second picture).

    Have you ever tried the Plastruct Plastic weld? It works great on bare plastic. Pretty much melts the plastic together for a strong bond. You would have to strip the area of paint, but it shouldn't be to difficult to mask and respray the windshield frame after the repair

    Very cool build. The proportions are just right.

    Thanks for sharing. Just picked up the new Revell kit. Love it, just wished it came with a hood.

    Looks really cool. Have you thought about recessing the engine a bit?

    Great build. Putting one together myself. No where near your detail as mine will be dusty and sitting on my desk on a "dirt road" base when done.
