  1. There is not one thing I would change on the side view of the new one. I think it is perfect, and I love how it looks. the question is, will I still think that when I see it from other angles.


  2. This reminds me of this funny thing that happened to me years ago. I used to have a chopped S-10 with hydros. It was pouring rain all day and I was on my way home on a road with a short dip that was notorious for flooding. There was a late model Vette following me. We got to the flooded dip and I slowly entered to water and knew it had to be about 10" deep. I watched in my rearview mirror as the people in the Vette were shocked at how quickly it got so deep and that this idiot was trying to cross it in a lowered mini truck. I waited as long as I felt safe then hit the switches. I had 8" cylinders in the front and 12's in the back. The look on their faces as my lowrider turned into a 4x4 was hilarious.  I went abut my way home while they had to back track about 15 miles to get to a road where they could go another route to detour around.

    Was there ever decals for the tractor in any of the issues of the kit?

    I have a bag kit of the square bodied Lotus that is missing the tires and chrome. I do have the decal sheet and there is nothing for the tractor, unless it had a decal sheet of it's own.

     I have to wonder how aerodynamic those projections (front fenders?) are. Seems to me they would cause drag (which may be the point of them). Doubt they would pass the safety gurus here in North America.

    It looks like there might be vents in them.


  5. Each time I have brought finished models to NNL east they have been photographed and published. If you know me, my models are all highly modified and out of the ordinary and fairly detailed. Even though there were many models built better and more accurately than mine, I still got published.

    The moral of my short story,  if you want to be in a magazine, build something that stands out. As has been already stated, a common model, even if built to perfection, might not catch the photographers eye.

    There might be some mighty disappointed folks if the new owners don' make any changes and maintain the status quo. There won't be anything worthy of nitpicking and second guessing about.

    This is the MCM forum, I have faith someone will find something!


  7. The tide car was done in florescent from what I understand. The problem is florescent dye is not lightfast. So if you do this, keep the model out of direct light to keep it from fading.


  8. On more than one occasion I have warned people to not put their address in posts when doing a trade, you should send it in a PM. It's not only the good members here who can read them. These days with identity theft, the less information an outsider  can find about you, the better. 

     

    Also if you reply to a post with an address, please for the sake of others, edit the address out of your quote.
