  1. Anyone watch Ripley's Believe It or Not? tonight 7/14/2019

    I don't despise anyone because they don't find something as interesting as I do or lavish fawning praise if it's not heart-felt.. Everyone have different tastes. I am no where nearly accomplished as the majority of builders here and it would be great to be able to take "junk" and repurpose it. I have a lot of respect for you, Bill, because I have learned a great deal from you and it's cool if you don't get it. Like you said, "different strokes". That being said, I have an autistic grandson and a nephew who has problems with hand dexterity and they both love Legos. I guess looking thru my eyes, I found it neat because the two of them found it fascinating. They couldn't imagine taking a million Legos and building a full size car out of them. I grew up before Legos were as popular as they are now. We had to make do with cardboard bricks.
  2. On the show tonight, a fellow and friends built a 1:1 Bugatti Chiron from Lego blocks and triangular elements created for this build. They used the actual wheels and tires and a metal hub to help hold the 1 1/2 tons of Legos they used. When they finished, they took it to the track and it ran 26 mph or kph(not sure which) with an electric motor. The build was incredible because the Lego car looked like a twin of the real thing. Ripley's airs on the Travel channel.
  3. Philco AM radio 1/25th model cars

    Yep, that's it. Thanks for the info. My Granddad gave it to me for Christmas sometime in the mid-70s.
  4. Philco AM radio 1/25th model cars

    These are neat. I've never seen the mid-60s cars as radios. I'm not sure if it's Philco, but I've got a 1931 Rolls Royce Phantom II that is an AM radio. The spare tires on each side are the controls, one for volume and the other for tuning. It's packed up or I would post a pic.
  5. Most beautiful planes of all time...

    I think the B-17 is #1. Second is the SR-71 Blackbird and my 3rd would be the AC-130 Spectre. The last 2 I'll mention are the Concorde and the P-61 Black Widow.
  6. This IS Different

    I thought this would fit this topic:
  7. You're welcome. I used the Auto Touchup site too before I found the paintref.com site. Paintref has chips for a lot more colors where the other site can be spotty with chip colors.
  8. I guess I should have quoted youpey when he said it was for a '74.
  9. The 1974 Plymouth has an Avocado Gold code J6 that may be close to what you are looking for. http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/chipdisplay.cgi?year=1974&manuf=Chrysler&smodel=Plymouth&info=yes&page=1
  10. I'm not completely sure of the year but I think it's 1977 Plymouth Trail Duster and if so, the green is Jade Green code F2. Snake's suggestion of SF or MCW would be your best bet. http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedisplay.cgi?type=paint&paint=30591&dtcode=DT7835&smodel=Plymouth&syear=1977&smanuf=Chrysler&sname=Jade Green
  11. Drag-U-la surfboard

    ...And then Rob Zombie wrote a song about it!
  12. Interesting Website Chevrolet Brothers

    A very cool site with some great info. Like Tom, I'm a bowtie guy too. Thanks for the link.
  13. I usually shop at 2 places online; Hobbylinc.com and Megahobby.com. I try to get stuff at the best price, but there isn't much difference in prices at these. If you can't find what you want at these, try ebay. Hope this helps.
  14. This guy should be ashamed(eBay)

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/MPC-1978-Dodge-D100-Custom-Pickup-NEW/333135539147?hash=item4d906cebcb:g:SzcAAOSwCqZclSe5&redirect=mobile This guy is unreal. Notice the delivery date as well. The kit is due the end of April and can be pre-ordered for less than $30 at several online hobby shops. Some sellers are just unbelievable.
  15. What's wrong with this picture?

    Maybe the plane is doing a fly-by of the tower as Maverick did in Top Gun.
