  1. Great body work! Is the blue one from the Revell Victoria kit! Really nice work, all of it. Tim
  2. thanks, gents -- much appreciated! Tim
  3. It's got to be five years since I finished one, but this quarantine has given me the chance and the head space to get one that was almost done over the top... That 50 Olds Rocket kit is really good. Now to finish the others I have here, three are over the 80% mark! Just noticed...the hood does fit better; it must have slipped while I was shooting the pictures. Sure, I made mistakes that are readily evident up close, but they're all preventable by not losing track of the job and building to a finish from the beginning. Tim Ettenheim
  4. Here in Lower Manhattan, the streets are empty...whenever my wife and I step out for our daily walk, our first thought is "ah, Sunday morning"... but of course it isn't. Not quite tumbleweeds blowing down the streets yet, but as empty as I've seen the streets since 911. Tim
  5. Guys, it takes me so long to finish a kit that things sometimes disappear...in this case, the decal sheet from the Revell 50 Olds Club Coupe, and, in fact only the two OLDSMOBILE decals for front and rear. I have the photoetch, but I'm just not good enough to do all ten PE letter individually so they line up right, twice.... Please let me know if you have it and would be willing to sell it to me? Many thanks, Tim.
  6. No you're not...I must've had a Lindberg box in front of me when I typed that. It's the Monogram.
  7. Now, back to my 1) question: has anyone successfully ground off the back of the Lindberg 40 Ford kit grille to expose the ribs? Knowing the MCG part is out there is great, but I'd like that to be the fallback, not the primary solution. thanks! Tim
  8. D**n! Then I just bought the wrong one at NNL East this spring...my bad. I missed it. I'll put the Deluxe one up for trade here. Many thanks, Tim
  9. I'm building the Monogram 40 Ford Standard Coupe, and as usual, am preparing to open the grill to expose the radiator behind it. I'm looking for a replacement appropriate grill, with vertical ribs. I have the MCG detail kit, but that is for a Deluxe with the horizontal ribs in the PE part. 1) Has anyone here successfully ground off the back of the chromed part while keeping the ribs intact? I've had pretty good luck with other models. I do recognize that this will mean cutting out the support piece and building a support structure for the replacement grille. 2) Does anyone make a Standard grille? I usually want to make sure I have a spare before the attempt. thanks! Tim
  10. Before up-ending a container of any kind over wet paint, be sure to wipe it with a damp rag, else dust will fall off the bottom of the container right on to your model.
  11. Al, great job! Looks a lot shinier than any DS I've ever seen...but that's a compliment! Did you get the hydraulic lifter working? Tim
  12. which silver paint is that? Alclad? Great great build so far. Tim
  13. Gentlemen, many thanks -- I discovered a little bottle of Testors dark flat green, among the enamels I hardly ever use...and it's in good shape! Thanks Art! Tim
