    Might want to upgrade the brakes then!

    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.

    Great looking 40. Nice job on the detailing and overall look. Very convincing and not overdone.

    Simply incredible. What else can anyone say. I love watching your masterpieces come together. You inspire John.
  11. Del Austin added a post in a topic What I used to be able to do   

    Very nice work. I used to do a lot of drawing when I had the time. I had and art scholarship (way back when) that I passed up on (stupid, stupid, stupid) and helped a buddy of mine with some techniques (He is now an accomplished artist that has published a few art books) Sorry...my jealousy got the best of me there for a minute.

    Seriously, Love your artwork.

    Wow, Love the Merc. I passed up one picking up one of these kits just yesterday, but after seeing this I'll be picking one up. Just bookmarked this one so I can go through and read all the tips. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like a cool project. One thing to consider is that the grill shells on 30 and 31 model A's were polished stainless steel so you may want to use some metalizer or Alcad on the shell and avoid adding any rust to that part.

    Completed Builds 2014 so far
    Not the best of my builds, but since I have only been able to finish less than a model a year for the past few years, just getting these done is a huge accomplishment for me. I am working on a few detailed builds, but here are the finished ones so far...

    Worked on the Cobra most of last year, but didn't finish it till 2014 so it counts!

    Hope to have a few detailed builds done this year.

    Thanks for looking. Comments/Critiques welcomed.

    Looks good so far. Always loved bugs but have yet to build one.
