  1. Wishing you a grand birthday celebration!

    cheers Misha

  2. Astounding! There, that's a new adjective to describe this amazing creation of yours. I've thoroughly enjoyed every update and thanks for taking us along for the ride. We have also learned a lot along the way. Kudos!
  3. I still can't believe this build. They say pictures don't lie and they also say a picture is worth a thousand words. I've also watched this build from day one and and am completely mesmerized by each detailed photo and well-written description. You, my friend, are so very talented with tactical skills, vision, patience and endurance. Does this amazing creation have a name? Are you planning on decals or at least a class and number? I know someone who could help you out.
  4. Now that's what I'm talking about. Some really great ideas here Mike. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Here's the pic of the second method with the glue on the glass. For the next go around, I will use an adhesive product I got from Art Laski called Liquid Glass. I'm hoping to reuse the aluminum strips from this window if I can get the Zap-A-Gap off.
  6. That didn't quite go as planned either. I was putting the last aluminum side on the clear piece of acetate and ended up getting glue all over the glass. I was so frustrated, I had to walk away. This method is still the way to do the windows just need a different glue from my arsenal, one that's not so runny.
  7. Well that didn't go as planned. The window frames are way to wide. I went ahead and used the same set up on the drill press by cutting the other side of the aluminum square tubing to make a small aluminum angle. Worked and looks so much better. Pics tomorrow.
  8. A bit of progress and a few photos to share. For the longest time, I couldn't figure out a way to do the aluminum window frames that would look convincing and would satisfy me. Here's what I finally came up with. I put my Dremel cut-off wheel in my bench drill press and set it almost to the bed so I could cut a slot in the aluminum square tubing for the acetate window. Once a whole strip of that was done, I would cut out 45 degree notches in the frame without cutting all the way through for the corners. There are six of these windows so this will take some time. I'll post more progress pictures as I go.
  9. Absolutely stunning metal work. I was trying to find the parts I liked the best but I just can't, they're all liked best. Also quite an impressive array of altereds, my favorite drag racers.
  10. This has been staring at me for so long, I just have to get back to this soon. I can always feel eyes on me and I can't stand it. Got a machined alternator and some PE parts to go along with the alternator so back to work. I'm sooo close.
  11. Thanks Tom. I'll bet its been exciting in Jackson Center. I hope to have this second build there too once its done. I'm quite certain I have the window frames construction worked out and have started to on the first one. I'll keep you all posted on my progress.
  12. Its now August 21st and my package finally arrived this past Monday. This put me so far behind that I've taken this build off the work bench and have put two others on it. I've lost my interest on this for now.
  13. I just found out yesterday the first Scout Truck I built and awarded to Dale is going to be moved to the Airstream plant's new museum once it opens later this year. I'm thrilled to have a build in a museum. Once this one is completed, I'll donate it too along with a build book showing the progress and reference pictures I had available.
  14. Besides breathtaking, I have no more words. You say you have 2000+ hours into this build and I don't doubt that for a second but I must say I probably have half of that just drooling over the pictures.
