    Got some more work done on the Fire Chief's car this weekend:

    Need to add the decal to the steering wheel:

    To me, the rivets just look too big, and I think they would be smooth rivets anyway.  I think the headlights are too high on the kit, but I don't know how much they need to be lowered.

    The information that I have is that the kit represents a 2003.

    That's a pretty cool looking combination.  Nice details.

    I just received an email from Gary Wallace, and he confirmed that the show will be November 20, 2016.  He also said that this will be their 25th year.

    It's usually the Sunday before US Thanksgiving, so that would be November 20th.  I'll check around the local hobby shops in the next few days to see if Gary has posted the flyers yet.

    Saw this one yesterday at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchards in Lafayette, NY.  It has a 1949 Oregon license plate on it, but it doesn't look like a 1949 Ford to me (but that do I know).

    Nicely done.  I picked this kit up a couple of years ago at the model show, but I haven't done anything with it yet except open the box. 
  9. Jim B added a post in a topic L/F 1940s Police Lights   

    Well, since I'm trying to replicate Sheriff from Cars:

     
    It turns out I don't need the lights from the 1948 Ford Police Coupe, I need the lights from the 1957 Ford Police Custom:

    Great looking Freightliner.
  11. Jim B added a post in a topic Any Vespa Fans Here?   

    Nice looking Vespa.  Never owned one, never ridden one.  I am currently trying to purchase a 2001 Suzuki GZ250 from a friend.

    Ok, I'll keep that in mind.  Thanks.

    L/F 1940s Police Lights
    I am in need of the lights & sirens (aka The Police Stuff) from this kit:
    1/25 '48 Ford Police Coupe 2 'n 1 Plastic Model Kit

    to put on a 1949 Mercury Club Coupe
    Yes, I know, I could just buy the kit; but then I'd have a 1948 Ford I'm not going to build.  Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Nice looking CSS Virginia.  What's that monitor in the background that looks like it has two turrets?  The USS Monitor only had one.
    You probably already know about Flagship Models: http://www.flagshipmodels.com/zencart/  They have some nice Civil War era 1/192 scale stuff.

    You have a Vespa?  Let's see it.
