  1. Need burnt orange paint

    Hope this helps, Bill.
  2. Need burnt orange paint

    Tamiya TS92 Orange Metallic would be a better choice than PS61, this is how it looks over grey primer.
  3. AMT Sunbeam Tiger

    AMT Sunbeam Tiger built box stock except for narrowed front wheels. I used the kit's lowered rear axle, but had to scratchbuild the mounts to fit the rear shocks as only stock length shocks were included. I also added new sidetrim made from plastic strip. Paint is Tamiya Italian Red over a pink basecoat.
  4. Post retirement modeling

    When I was working I was an active member of a car model club and tried to take at least one new build to each monthly meeting - I was building around 15-18 models a year. Now that I've retired, my production rate has gone up to about two a month. I find that although I have more time at the bench, I take more time over each build. On that basis, I have about two year's worth of builds in my stash, but that doesn't stop me from adding to it .
  5. Pictures of Sox and Martin 70 cuda?

    I have this photo on file, not sure if it's the '70 car though. According to Jim Schild's book, they were given a 'body-in-white' for 1970 which was used as the race car.
  6. Sam Foose

    Sad news that another legend is gone - Sam Foose has passed away.
  7. Revell Jaguar XKSS

    Revell Jaguar XKSS painted with Tamiya Deep Metallic Blue. Aftermarket plug wires added but otherwise box stock. Couldn't get the hinged bonnet to work (same problem as with the E-Type) but otherwise happy.
  8. DSPIAE buying source

    Ali Express have them here
  9. Yellow Bob Ford Thunderbolt

    Thanks Alan, I have three more on my shelf that aren't racecars...
  10. Finest tweezers

    I saw a review of Dispiae tweezers on the Flory Models website, they were highly recommended - will even pick up a hair off the bench!
  11. My second yellow drag car in a row, this time it's the Revell '64 Thunderbolt kit with Fred Cady decals to build the car from 1965. The body was painted with Tamiya Yellow, basic wiring was added to the engine and the wheels came from the Revell '32 Ford kits. I now have seven completed examples, with a Butch Leal version still to do.
  12. Tamiya Fair 2018

    Nah, it's the wrong scale! Looks like it has some semblance of an engine though..
  13. Tamiya Fair 2018

    According to MegaHobby, it's a Ford GT. I was hoping for the TS050....
  14. Happy Birthday, Slusher!

    Happy birthday Carl!
