  1. 1/25 AMT NYPD Chevy Police Van

    Once you get the roof ribs on, you'll have to make inner door panels for the cab area. The kit has no inner door panels at all.
  2. '73 Camaro (Replica)

    Very nice. It really reflects all the effort you put in to get it right. You must really enjoy the real car!
  3. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    Is there any difference between the 1977 and 1978 Novas?
  4. I hear you. I'm an oldster too. I have some mobility issues, and sometimes I just don't feel like modeling. An hour at the bench is an hour away from my wife, and that also bothers me. It always takes me months, sometimes years to get things done, so believe me when I say I'm in no hurry. I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Looking forward to the Nova as well. Thanks for getting back with me on this, I wish you and Greg the best! By the way, I usually don't build anything newer than model year 1977, but this is so cool I'm making an exception.
  5. I believe I should be on your list. If not, count me in.
  6. You still have models built long ago?

    I've got a showcase full of builds from 40 to 45 years ago.
  7. 1978 Chevy Nova 4dr POLICE

    I'd like to join the list for one of these (possibly more).
  8. Holmes 750 wrecker plans or instructions

    The computer is running again, but everything on it is gone I'm told. I need this computer mostly for the AutoCad and compatibility with my ALPS printers, so I can draw and print decals when needed.
  9. Texaco station in 1977

    The real station was located a few blocks from where I grew up. It's in 1/25 scale. the walls are gatorboard covered with .060 styrene. It's hard to photograph white in normal room conditions, but here goes...
  10. Texaco station in 1977

    I've done a little work on the station in the form of a few accessories....
  11. Here's a Holmes 500 wrecker I've been working on for my Texaco station project. The white parts are scratchbuilt with Evergreen and Plastruct styrene. The dark parts are from the parts box or spare diecast parts.The Chevy (or will it be a GMC?) cab mockup shows where I'm going with this. Question: What should I use to rig this thing? Certainly not thread! Is there a product out there made for this kind of work?
  12. Holmes 750 wrecker plans or instructions

    I just amassed a large file of info by searching online. I always assume what I need is out there, it's just a matter of how hard i search. Sadly, I've gotten no further on that project since then. Worse, the computer on which I had the file died, and took everything with it. All I can offer you are the pics. Usually a Holmes 500 would be mounted on a medium duty truck, but there are plenty of pics of them installed on a heavy duty pickup chassis, as I intend to do. I look forward to watching your project come together!
  13. It's been 4 years now. Did you ever build your Holmes boom? I'd love to see it!
  14. Holmes 750 wrecker plans or instructions

    I made a Holmes 500 rig. Depending on the age of the Holmes 750 you wish to make, perhaps the pics in this thread could be of some help.
  15. (Ford) Pickup Truck Bed Length?

    Here you go...
  16. (Ford) Pickup Truck Bed Length?

    That is true, but it is available, I have three of them. I bought mine at shows, but I suppose you could contact him directly.
  17. (Ford) Pickup Truck Bed Length?

    It's not a good pic, but here's the Morgan Automotive detail Ford bed, dechromed.
  18. Square Quad Headlights

    Are you looking for a part that's exactly what you need or a part that can be modified into what you need?
  19. 1957 Ohio State Highway Patrol Car.

    Just need to find more striping. Looking good.
  20. Here's the address according to Google Earth.
  21. Let's see your TV and movie cars!

    The truck is the MPC 1978 Chevy pickup cab, the bed is from the Fall Guy MPC truck, and the 4WD stuff is from the Mule Skinner MPC truck. The GMC grille and roll bar are scratch built. The trim was done with patience and evergreen strip styrene (maybe it was plastruct, I'm not sure). Thank you for the kind words.

  23. Texaco station in 1977

    The nozzles were carved out of a piece of styrene with plastic rod glued on where needed. There are pics earlier in this thread that may illustrate this better.
  24. Texaco station in 1977

    A fair question. I heard something about Photobucket restoring pictures, so I went to this thread that was populated by images stored on Photobucket. It seemed to me the pictures were back, I just wanted to make sure they could be seen by others. I'm hoping to finish the station one day, but it is too large for my current work space. As the kids move out, I will take over more space...it's just a matter of time.
  25. Texaco station in 1977

    Can you guys see the pics in this thread? If so, has Photobucket returned?
