  1. I have been using these for about a year now and like them.They have a small led light and interchangeable lenses with different magnification.I like them because you can look around the lenses easily if needed. https://www.amazon.com/YOCTOSUN-Magnifier-Professional-Jewelers-Interchangeable/dp/B01H8808H6/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3C0EJ2MVS0PCM&keywords=magnified+glasses+with+light&qid=1551308859&s=gateway&sprefix=magnified%2Caps%2C366&sr=8-5
  2. Outstanding build!Very clean.
  3. Sorry about the bad luck You also have patience of a saint,if that happened to me I probably would have thrown a massive temper tantrum and thrown the whole lot in a box and not touched it again for a few years.
  4. Lookin' great!and I like what you are thinking.......Turbo that pig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I will be eagerly watching this build! I had a Baja Bug back in the day,and it looks like you are off to a great start! Oh,and Dale.....Amen!
  6. Very nice job on the tin!Can't make it look more 1:1 scale than that!
  7. I am getting excited to see this beast closer to being finished,it's gonna be killer!
  8. A nice sharp,clean build you have there Brian.
  9. Cool find,Greg.I love stories about car modeling's history.
  10. WOW!,I really like where this build is going.If you don't mind me asking,how much was the sherline mill and lathe package?
  11. Amazing attention to detail!Can't wait to see this beast finished,gonna be a show stopper!
  12. Outstanding work!This thing is gonna be killer!
  13. Absolutely Stunning!Your scratch building skills are amazing .
  14. This was my first attempt at this kit,and to be honest it wasn't terrible to build considering the age of the tooling.Pretty much box stock but I did add plug wires,fuel lines,craft ribbon seat belts,wire insulation for the blower piping boots,and modified the hood scoop from a Badman kit for the injector scoop.I am not terribly happy with this build,but I have learned from my mistakes and have another one in my stash to try again.
  15. Went to Hobby Lobby on a supply run and a new airbrush followed me home .
  16. Exceptional paint skills! Very nice use of paint washes!
  17. Sounds like an awesome idea!My kids don't have the patience to build models but will sit in a hunting blind/river bank all day and practice sports for hours(haven't figured that one out yet) .I always give them a chance to build something..........but no luck so far.I guess some weirdo's just don't like building models
  18. Went on a LHS/Hobby Lobby/ Michael's run yesterday,nothing groundbreaking....just adding to my already daunting "to-build list".
