      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Real nice work Mark.  Where did you get the sedan body?  I would like to build Royal Pontiac's Catalina that was a sedan also.  I built bill Knafel's Anderson Pontiac "Tin Indian" which is the hard top Catalina.  Dan

    Thanks for the kind words guys.  I have a convertible that I'm working on now with the custom horizontal lights.  I haven't decided on the color for this one yet.  Dan

    Thanks for the kind comments guys.  I enjoyed building this car.  I had to learn stuff the hard way though.  After I painted it, I had to adjust the inside of the body so everything would fit.  It turned out Ok and I'll do more test fitting if there is another next time for one of these.  LOL.  Dan

    50 Ford custom coupe
    I just finished this today.  It is a Jimmy Flintstone resin body and I used parts from the 49 and 50 Ford kits to finish it.  The paint is Gold pearl powder in clear on top and Copper pearl powder in clear on the sides.  on top of that I sprayed a multi colored glitter on and that doesn't show up in the pictures.  I also used Gold bare metal foil for the side trim and I used Tamiya clear yellow on the chrome parts for the Gold look on them.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

    Thanks Ron and yours look great.  I really like the dark Blue one.  I've got mine stripped already and working on the interior.  The chassis isn't the greatest but it's all I got to work with.  I was hoping that I didn't get burnt on this and I'm glad I didn't.  It is going to take a lot of work to get-er-done, but I do like a challenge.  And this one is a real challenge.  LOL.  Dan

    Thanks a lot guys.  I'm enjoying this rebuild.  Here are a few more pics of what's been done so far today.  I'm using the custom headlights from the AMT 25 T.  I have to make an adjustment for the steering column and also have to spray Alclad on it and a few other parts that should be chrome.  I'm gettin closer to getting 'er done.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan




  10. 59 Impala added a post in a topic 26 T 2dr sedan   

    WOW, thanks guys for the kind words.  I'm enjoying redoing this kit.  I had the fenders from some parts that I got at a show and the 26 was a glue bomb that I wanted to rebuild.  Also, a friend of mine needed a set of fenders from this kit and I gave them to him so he could build his.  So far everything is working out just fine.  I had to do a little work on the front fenders to get the suspension to work.  Had to remove part of the inner fenders to free up the A arms.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan

    26 T 2dr sedan
    I have been working on this 26 T glue bomb for awhile now and there is still a lot work to be done.  Yesterday I assembled the chassis and this morning I sprayed gloss black on it.  Just a few minutes ago I sprayed the Alclad chrome on it.  I'm happy with how it looks.  The body and most of this car is from the Revell 26 T sedan delivery kit.  The fenders are from the AMT Ala Kart kit.  I removed the rear door detail to make this just a 2 dr sedan.  The color is Candy Ruby Red over Silver on the body and Candy Ruby Red over Copper on the fenders.  Also, there is multi color glitter over everything. There still is a lot of work to be done before it's finished.  Thanks fer lookin.  Dan
