    I totally agree with supporting your hobby shop. I buy models at the craft stores if I want a second kit, or if my shop can't get it. 
    I always pay cash at my LHS. The reason is important: there is a 3% to 6% fee charged to the vendor when you use a credit card, and that comes directly from the shop's profit. By paying cash, you are helping to ensure the shop's existence.

    Looks good. I started one back in the 70s and never got the body/engine placement figured out. I still have, maybe I can dig it out and take a few pics.

    The '65 is based on the Compact Falcon body and the '67 is based on the midsize Fairlane.

    Wayne, thanks for answering. I remember that we had a great time that day. And Time does fly!

    Very nice work.  Perhaps something could be done where the lower front fender meets the nose.  It looks rather abrupt - how about rolling it into the front pan? maybe a filler piece...

    There was a model of a Jet powered truck by AMT - I never got one so I don't recall the name.
     
    Yeah oldcarfan and snake, exhibition cars were not real racers and kind of a waste of time. So were the Hurst Girls (especially Linda), Drift Cars and Ken Block videos.  But they DO have their fans!

  13. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic '64 Ford Falcon T/A   

    Beautiful work so far, and lots of nice tips. I hate to sound like a party pooper, but note that the Trans Am series began in 1966, so the Falcon is technically an A Sedan (the A on the pic of the blue car).  Therefore it was raced by an amateur for two years prior to the TA series starting. Perhaps it should have some "battle damage" such as minor dents and scrapes. plus it would probably be dirty in the wheel wells and underneath and may have been repainted a time or two. There were a lot of amateurs filling out the TA fields because they could actually earn some cash (the TA and Can Am were the first SCCA Professional series). Falcons, Darts, Valiants, and even Corvairs were raced by low budget racers.

    There have been two Indy car races this year. Honda powered cars won both, so his chances are good.  This also shows that he and the team have given up on this year in F1.
