  1. That is excellent work and the most amazing thing is that there actually was a GAZ promo. I never suspected!
  2. 1957 DeSoto Adventurer convertible

    Another superb build! I wish Round2 would use the AMT Chrysler 300C tooling to create a De Soto.
  3. 1974 Chevy Corvette......my one and only for '18.

    Beautiful work as always! As far as the high stance, you are absolutely correct. That's how they looked. Many sports cars of that time were simply "jacked up" by the manufacturers as the easiest way to meet new federal bumper height regs. More sophisticated solutions were left for later re-designs. As I recall, MG's a really bad case of it.
  4. Terrible Box Art

    The box art may be BAD but it looks like a Rembrandt compared to kit that was inside!
  5. 1964 Cadillac Eldorado

    I call that many levels above "decent". That's beautiful work and I'm looking forward to seeing more in the future!
  6. AMT 1968 El Camino SS 396

    Beautiful build! You make it look a whole world better than the box art does. Of course, I was really hoping to see the soap box racer.
  7. That's a great build and a great idea that had never occurred to me. Even though we started from totally different sources your statements about the problems of box art building exactly mirror my own experience. I was totally surprised by how many changes were needed to build the box art from what was in the box! Beautiful job!
  8. robert e lee steamboat

    That's a great looking build! However, as something of a wooden boat geek, I am required to add this bit of trivia: The Robt. E. Lee, the Robert E. Lee, and the R.E. Lee are three separate and different vessels. So it's not correct to say that you've built the Robert E. Lee!
  9. Think the production Edsel was bad????

    Most early styling prototypes use different styling treatments on each side so that they can be easily compared while keeping the costs own. Sometimes they're even done as a two door on one side and as a four door on the other.
  10. AMT '32 Ford roadster - 1959 box art build

    Actually, I agree with you, Sam. There are a number of little issues that I have with it but, hey, it displays pretty good!
  11. AMT '32 Ford roadster - 1959 box art build

    That is a really fabulous build for 1959 and it still looks good today!
  12. Your Favorite or Interesting Race Car Livery

    No illusion there! The car actually had a cutaway panel!
  13. Good Bye Wire Wheels!!

    I totally agree! Nothing against wire wheels but those wires on that car just don't look right. Now that's a very sharp and much improved model.
  14. AMT '40 Ford Tudor: 1959 Style!

    Nice, nice!
  15. '50 Ford dual cowl

    The Hydro Hawk is a combination of the AMT 1959 vintage speedboat kit and a Jimmy Flintstone '51 Stude resin body. It helps that I know a little bit about boatbuilding and was able to plank up the transition from one to the other pretty much like you might do in 1:1.
