    Hey, Carl..... Do you make your own plates? That's something I would like to be able to do.

    How many of you name your builds?
    The model I'm working on now will be called the Scarlet Harlot...... I've seen a couple others do this, I'm just curious as to how many of you guys name your models.
    It's pretty popular in the 1:1 world, and I think it gives the build more of a theme.......

    I was thinking of making a similar post here! I love all the guys here, I've been here since 2012 and have nothing but positive experiences with everyone.......
    I guess they let me stay on for comic relief!!

    My niece is a very bright young lady, but she has problems grasping some of the new math....... I can understand why, and I don't worry too much about it because MC Escher was also poor at math, but was quite the genius at his art.............

    What paints and primer are you using? The reason I ask is maybe you could get better results (which I'm sure it looks fine), with a different paint.
    Since I've switched to Dupli-Color stuff I get a lot better finish than with say, enamels........

    Thank you, Tulio!
    Thanks, Terry..... The interior is fabric tan by Model Master, it comes in a small spray can. I like to use it because it dries rough to the touch, like scale fabric!
    The white is just bare plastic........... (don't tell anyone......)

    I'm turning 37 this year. I had started to gain some weight, blood pressure was up, etc....... What has helped me was to get a dog! I'm out and about more, I've lost weight, get more exercise than I was, it's been all good for me since I've had her. Also, I cut out pork as Bill mentioned that all should do......
    Pets are like holistic medicine...... they work on your entire well being instead of treating symptoms! and It's common knowledge that people with pets live longer, healthier, happier lives....
    Now if I could just quit smoking.............

    Thanks, David!  With Tulio's guidance I figured out a way to assemble the chassis and only have to cut the exhaust into two pieces....... I just built the frame without the rear end, made the rear it's own assembly, so I can run the exhaust thru the frame then add the rear axle.......
    Should have pics this evening.....!

    Thanks, Tulio! I knew you would be able to help, as many of these that you've built....... 
  12. JollySipper added a post in a topic '48 Ford mild custom   

    Quick question for you guys that have built these...... Can I assemble the frame before running the exhaust? It calls for putting the exhaust pipes thru the frame.......

    Getting a decent start on this one. The plan is to throw the custom parts from the chopped kit at the stock body.....
