  1. Annual 68 or 69 Impala SS Button Hubcaps

    GTX/Bill: Thanks! That is a set I have never seen before I don't think. The center part looks like the eventual button cap used from 1974-1990... Still, not bad, I'm going to get a set for reference. May be useful somewhere.., Kayma/Mr. John! YESSS!! That is the jewel I seek! I will try to contact the info listed and if I can get a set that way I will.. If NOT, and you can spare them, I would be happy to get those from you and tickled to pay you for them as well!! Gosh I love this place. So far someone somewhere has had what I needed in some form or other and/or I have been shown things I had no idea even existed. Like the caps Bill referred to. I have searched Ebay from time to time for a while now and as yet had not found those particular wheels/caps at all. Thanks to all who responded and provided information. GREATLY appreciated!!
  2. Thanks, AM.. As I've said before in other threads, I subscribe to the MAD Magazine philposophy of modeling:. Take a lump of plastic or whatever and a knife. Using the knife, skillfully cut away everything on the lump of plastic that DOES NOT look like you're subject goal. VoilĂ ! A intricately detailed model of your favorite subject. Feel free to use it as you wish with no restrictions.
  3. Annual 68 or 69 Impala SS Button Hubcaps

    Rats! I knew they were pretty scarce but I did not think they were THAT scarce. Great. Thanks, Mark.
  4. Hello Friends, I am looking for a set of button/poverty hubcaps (pics below) that as far as I can tell were only included on either AMT or MPC 68 & 69 Impala SS annual models. They are needed for my police models of 1969-1973 on full size Chevies. Happy to purchase if available, or trade something, I have lots of unopened kits. Or even a loan to copy in RTV molding and returning them unhurt. Thanks to all!! D.
  5. And midnight work last night brought it to here.. Please excuse the crappy camera/operator/settings et-all..
  6. More pain(full)staking progress...
  7. Thanks, Anthony!! And all... Ahem; ..."War is Hell" Well, I have my own take on that adage: "Carving headers out of stock strip styrene is HELL!" A few pics of the in progress of the early 79-82 LTD - S Single-headlight header panel...
  8. (Very nice, Paul..) But if ya gonna hang out in places like this, you should wear a badge on yo didies, er sumthin.... Take the cuffs off, Junior...
  9. Built another cheap wooden boat model

    GILLIGAN!! Nice build, seriously. I started out with sailing warships and battleships before I fell under the spell of cars, so I really like this. Good build!

    The grille is very nice and using paints and wash effects I would say that is as close as you could possibly get to recreating the look of the grille/turn signals without a major workover. Another way of doing it (the major thingie) would be to use some Oyumara quick mold, make fast slush molds of the grille edges, and then cast those edges in clear resin. Then carefully remove the plastic kit molded in signal lenses and substitute the clear cast resin versions. Lotta work tho.. Still, barring that, (and I'm not even sure how good that would look, maybe not as nice as this) I would say that's as good as it gets using paints. I almost feel like I'm back in the 70's and looking at the REAL DEAL. Makes me wanna walk over and open the door!
  11. Working on it as we speak. Thanks!!
  12. GMP: Don't know yet on price, but this will be full easy to assemble kit. The parts I've received from Greg so far have been sharp, excellent and sturdy. They also prime and paint well. You shouldn't have to scavenge another kit for completion parts or anything right down to tires if it goes as planned. MichaelW: I will add you to that list and notify you when they are available. Greg, thanks again. I know major life milestones and work have intruded lately. Thank you for all..

    Same thing here on the yard work. Model building usually slows as the grass on almost six acres needs a perpetual trim in the summer. Which in Louisiana is like from March to early November. That plus upper 90's, high humidity and a heat index of over 100 has me retreating more as time goes by. Very good of you to build the model as a giveaway. I hope they appreciate the hard work. I have two cats that like to come up in my most intense moments of modeling, stand up on their hind legs and use my outer thigh as a claw-popping location to demand attention. I never get used to the surprise.

    Great Project Anthony!! And... I don't know exactly how, but... (Ever get that 'being watched' feeling?) I sense a possible disturbance in the Force, and that an attack of some sort may be imminent...
  15. Look at the skid-plate under that baby doll!!
