  9. Brian, I have a Corvette nose but I’m not sure what year kit it is for. I would say it is a 77 to 82 call Bob older than yellow. Never painted. I also have two of the front good years with the Corvette wheels in pretty good shape if you are interested I can snap a photo. I just put them down in the basement this afternoon so I know right where they are. Also I have plenty of big block Chevy engine parts from the Corvette cats. I have literally like seven pairs of heads! A couple of stock intake. One or two while pans etc. No spare blocks though.
  10. Kim did you get your instructions? If not I may have some I can photocopy but would need to check

  12. Jeff I’m glad you like it brother. And Dan thank you so much for posting pictures of you work. That Vega is a beast!
  13. Hi friends, I am in search of the wheels from the Revell 1/16 34 Ford Phaeton kit and the taillight panel (rear clip) from the Revell Z28. Thank you and happy building! -Mark
  14. Dan that is a lot of shows! I saw them 7 times. I love the references that you put on your model cars. I would very much like to see that Vega and pretend chipper being that I am a drag racing fan. Are these yours by chance?
  15. Thanks for the comments guys. They mean a lot coming from you fantastic builders! -Mark
  16. Curt that is beautiful! I have a question. Do you or Raul by any chance have the wheels that came with this Revell and if so would you be willing to try them? They were a Boyd style wheel. Thanks and again nice build!-Mark
  17. Doyle and Riley, thank you for the nice responses. Yeah it’s definitely a goofy a little critter but it was a fun simple build. I’ll pass on your compliments to my friend James who mastered the body so many years ago.- Mark
  18. Hi friends, this is a dodge D50 pick up truck that a friend of mine years ago decided to try his hand at customizing. It was one of his first attempts and by his own admission he went a little crazy with the top chop using the roof off of the 53 Studebaker AMT kit. He smooth everything on the body. He had flares and runningboards which it really didn’t need by his own admission. He was proud of what he did though and he wanted to try his hand at casting so he pulled a mold off of the body and this is a resin copy he gave me. Being a drummer one of my biggest drummer influences is the late great Neil Peart from the rock ‘n’ roll band Rush. For some reason I have often associated red with Rush because many of their song titles had the word red and it was the color of their logo on their album 2112. Plus my favorite drum sets that Neil ever had were always his red ones. I had cut his picture off of the inside of one of their album sleeves clear back in the mid 80s. Somehow I managed to keep it all these years and I decided to try my hand at spraying transparent Kandy over a picture as I have seen many modelers do. The results I got were rather atrocious! I used spray adhesive and tried to burnish the picture down flat but I still got a huge bubble or two! Oh well. I painted it with a craft store red before I applied the picture. I then tried to tint some Future wax with transparent red and hand brushed it over the photo with horrific results! Neil came out looking like a vampire that had pools of blood around his mouth etc. So I cleaned it off with Windex and then just shot Testors transparent candy red over the whole. One of Neil‘s nicknames was Professor. This I painted in gold across where the tailgate would be had it not been smoothed over. The transparent candy red was pretty thick after a few coats and pretty well buried the word but when you shine an LED flashlight on it you can see it. Anyhow the wheels or parts box items that I brush painted gold. Windows are transparent red acetate. It is basically a slammer with no engine or chassis detail. I just hope Neil himself would approve of it. Did any of you guys know that he used to build model cars when he first joined the band back in the 70s. He would take a project on the road with him and work on it in his hotel room after shows. He said his favorite kits were the AMT 3 in 1 that his father got him. Later in life he began to amass a huge 1/43 diecast collection. If you feel like googling Neil Peart model cars you should be able to come across a picture of him with that collection. I know it’s goofy but I hope at least one of you get a kick out of it. – Mark
