    And they say spelling doesn't matter...

    The exhaust manifolds are incorrect. They are supposed to attach to a manifold that attaches to the side of the engine, but there are no mounting flanges or bolts. First step is to add some short lengths of styrene tube cut off at a 45 degree angle to each of the individual pipes...

    The joints were filled with Bondo...

    The seams were sanded smooth, and flanges were created with sheet styrene, bolts are pieces of hex-shaped styrene rod...

    Works for me...

    I realize that the lake is a result of damming the Colorado. But the Colorado has flowed for centuries without any "help" from us. Damming a river that runs on and off through desert and expecting it to maintain consistant flow (and for Lake Mead to remain at a constant level) is foolish.
    Remember the old margarine commercial? Don't fool with Mother Nature...

    Love the interior. And your foil work is among the best I've seen. This should turn out to be a pretty impressive model.

    Very nicely done, Tomo.
    But to be honest, every time I look into one of your topics I get sidetracked by your avatar. Holy krap, that is one fine looking human being...

    I went to see the Hoover Dam maybe 10 years ago, as a side trip while visiting Las Vegas. Amazing, awesome. This was back when you could still drive (and walk) along the top of the dam –I assume that's now gone due to "terrorism?" We took a guided tour of the dam, stood at the top of the dam and leaned over to look straight down along the gently arcing 600 feet of concrete. It was an amazing sight (and more than a little scary for a guy like me who isn't exactly fond of heights!). And we toured the inner workings of the dam, the generators... way cool. What an engineering marvel. It's a trip I'll never forget.
    Anyway, I remember then seeing the water level of Lake Mead, and the different colored stone along the shore where the water level used to be about 30-40-50 feet higher... so a disappearing Lake Mead is nothing new.
    Like jb said... create a lake in the middle of the desert and you get what's coming to you...

    Another beauty, Rich. I love the colors... so very '50s. I especially like that "armrest area" in black just below the side windows.
    And BTW... 1956 was a very good year IMO...

    Charlie, you are a true craftsman in every sense. Just beautiful work, And I for one really appreciate the subject matter you bring to the forum... we don't see nearly enough antique/vintage trucks here, so your choice of subject combined with your skill is a real treat that raises the bar in the Trucks section by several notches..

    Not exactly my cup of tea as far as subject matter goes...
    But man, that's a cool model! Very nice work all around, About the only comment I have is to suggest a black wash on the wheels to bring out the detail.

    I don't understand the problems you guys are having posting photos interspersed with text. It works for me just like it always did... type the text, hit return and paste the image info, hit return and type more text, hit return and post next photo's image info, etc., etc.
    It's not working that way for you guys?
