      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    I think you should consider using the wood grain as you have it; it is a very attractive not-so-light tone! Sometimes a bit of unexpected contrast can be visually stimulating. I wouldn't discard it just yet, maybe do some more testing with your other colors next to the light wood grain... remember how your eyes were tricked by the white plastic vs. the taped-off appearance? You really need to place your colors against each other to see HOW they affect each other. I think you might surprise yourself! Looking nice so far...

    Lookin' good! Since we're watching details, Impala should have 5-lug wheels, not 6. Keep on building!

    Off to a nice start! Very attractive color; what's the interior color going to be?
    Will be watching with interest as I used to own a '66 SS with a 327, 3-speed manual shift on-the-column(!). Mine was black with a white interior. Love these big Chevies!

    Perfect stance for the 70s! Got that "new Hi-Jackers airshocks" elevated tailend look!

    Totally agree. Correct-scale-appearance on the details is not often done so well! (Plug wires the size of garden hoses is a peeve of mine, and has ruined many an otherwise fine looking model.) Kudos as well for the correct factory placement of the plug wires, instead of the easy way out; laid over the valve covers. I will, however, forgive anyone a bit of scale cheating who tries to make a throttle return spring; they just never look quite right to me. You did as fine a job as I've seen, though! Really looking forward to what you do with the rest of the build...

    Agree with what everyone says about your changes - nicely planned and executed! The color is spot-on perfect. What paint/color did you use?

    Cool! You should post some of your armor in the "All The Rest" category of the forums here; I'd like to see what you've done, just based on your clean building style.
    +1 on those high impact colors. What a time in automotive history!

    Sweet custom work! I love the head-on view especially.

    Watching this with interest; the '57 Chevy is a hard body to customize well!

    This is turning out VERY nice!

    Beautiful craftsmanship; a piece of sculpture!

    We learn from each other, brother. Remember; there are no dumb questions, just a few dumb people.
  13. bisc63 added a post in a topic Boulton Paul's Turret Fighter - done!   

    Just checked out your write-up; very well done. I, too, have always been a little enamored of these fighters with turrets. They just look SO formidable, don't they? As for Airfix, the only ones available to me as a child were the ones licensed to MPC to produce in the USA. As an adult, I have "discovered" both old and new gems from Airfix, and have a generally very positive view of all I've encountered. I was very impressed with the level of detail, for example, on the old 1/72 B-26 Marauder; so much so I bought two off ebay right away. I recently picked up a new tool 1/72 Folland Gnat, and like it very much. Now I want one in 1/48, but at the moment it is commanding high prices!
    Looking forward to your next build!

    I can hear your friends now..." he really was a nice guy, then he went nuts building a model ship with more details than the original ship!"
    Ho-lee smoke! The only thing missing is the rats.

    Really attractive paint work! Nice models.
