I made a roll of paper towels and a chrome holder and hung it on the underside of the lifted lid. I had to research to find out when paper towels became available and believe it or not, it was the early '30s. I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow.
I find pictures online by doing google searches and copying them and scaling them down to the right size on my page layout program. I make several of the same incase I miss cut or something, then I have an extra or two and don't have to print out another full size sheet.
So I gotta ask, how did you know they were sideways if they were right on your computer? Great build of a challenging kit. I've got one of these in the works myself but with a resin cab from Ed Fluck. Its in the Purple Pond at the moment. I really need to get it finished.
This is really looking good Bill. I'd like to point out the exhaust pipes you've chosen for this engine. You chose the kit hemi but used the small block exhaust pipes with the two center ones close together. Hopefully this can be changed without too much trouble. I'm looking forward to your paint job and color choice. Any ideas in mind?
I can also attest to the highest of quality of Mark's resin engines. I have an early 392 of his and have plans later on for its use. He's also a great guy to deal with as I had the opportunity to meet him and see his workshop. I'm looking forward to your build as well Tim. Let us know when you get a thread started.
Where in the heck did you get that huge pencil?? You still haven't answered me. Also, your fingers don't look much different than mine. How come mine don't work like yours? Total amazement. "These were a pain to assemble?" Really? I'll bet they were. Doesn't seem humanly possible in 1/25th scale.
Thank you very much my brothers. Your interest in this build is greatly appreciated. Yes, Chris, its great to be almost done with this one. I have others to get back to that need to be completed. Joe - thanks for looking for a taller set of pie crusts. And yes, pie sounds really good about now. A reference book on this build would be great but I think I'll just type out a sheet and see how much I can get on it. Please stay tuned, I'm not done with this one yet.
