  1. I know a lot of you guys prefer not to bother with IG, but I've discovered another reason to have an account..... Hashtags! My next modeling project will be the '62 Thunderbird that has just been re-released by Round2. I have found a bunch of tags that pertain to the '62 T Bird. Lots and lots of inspiration and reference!
  2. I still do that! In fact, I don't have a table to eat from, I have to eat standing up..... How's that for dedication?
  3. Thanks, Joe man.... I wasn't sure. I've been thinking of getting the Revell one, good to have some info on it....
  4. Is this the same kit that Revell AG just released? The new kit has fairings and Police markings...... If so, that could be a good source for the instructions in English.
  5. Miles, man, I just was facing this issue with a T Bird SC molded in red...... I finally figured that I'll need to get an enamel paint to spray it with. Lacquers just won't work......
  6. Sometimes I use BMF to mask some things..... I would use the foil to make the "edge" then use masking tape for the rest. That way you're not using up all your foil........
  7. I had a Grandad like that..... He liked 'Old Crow'. Whenever he would make his run to the ABC store, she would always say "There he goes, going to Anna Belle Cook's...."
  8. Carl's a good guy! Happy Birthday, Carl man.......
  9. I know the car shows that he probably attends in Alabama....... My Dad has a '73 Charger with a 318 that needs paint. He shows it at some gatherings here and wins trophies! I imagine that the type of folks that will be impressed by that quality of car would think that these builds were top shelf. Things like foil and clear wouldn't matter.....
  10. I would pull that big block out of the Polara and shoehorn it into the Barracuda......
  11. I had a FB account for a whole 3 days......... I much prefer Instagram. Been there a couple years...... They say if you don't learn something new everyday from social media, then you're following the wrong stuff........
  12. I remember that build! (and the inspiration behind it) Looks really good.... Seems like that would be the most logical thing to do, seeing as how the roof from the '58 is a separate part. Scale difference shouldn't matter much.....
  13. I REALLY like the looks of the Starliner roof! Looks like something I'll have to look into further..... Thanks for the replies, guys....
  14. Thanks, Steve........ I was thinking along the lines of just grafting a roof on to the '62 body. It wouldn't even have to be a Thunderbird roof..... I'll be building it 'mild custom', so a custom roof might would be cool. Anyone done that? if so, Please share....
  15. Hello, guys..... I'm gonna be getting the '62 Thunderbird that they just released here soon. I was wondering..... What all would be required to turn this into a coupe? I like the roadster but a coupe would be something different than most others.... Thanks for any help!
  16. Pioneer was top of the line in those days! Vinyl has been making a comeback lately, also.... Primus has released Brown Album on brown vinyl, and the Green Naugahyde album in green. Are you building a vintage stereo system component style, or you just have the reel player?
  17. That's the coolest thing ever, man...... You know those older folks light up when they see him......
  18. I didn't! I just painted all the trim with black after masking it all with foil....... Your tape idea sounds like a good idea, you could possibly lay it on a piece of glass and cut it in half with a straight edge.....
  19. I don't have an airbrush set up..... not yet anyway. When I painted the Turbo Coupe, I just used all DupliColor products that I normally use. They didn't react with the Monogram red plastic. For some reason, this kit is being difficult to cover.......
  20. Mike, this looks really good! When I built mine, the only problem I had was the headlights....... DupliColor makes a clear they call "1K clear". It's in a large can...... It's kinda 'hot' but shines really nice. May be worth trying on something scrap.....
  21. Hey, Mike man..... I believe I'm gonna have to get some enamel paints to use on this one.... The lacquers I've tried to spray it with aren't working well with the red plastic this is molded in. I'm gonna build it, just need to get that enamel for it.....
  22. These were beyond a 'sports car', they were Porsche's first Super Car..... This is an excellent build, I've been wanting one of these kits for a while...
  23. I guess it's better than making "vroom vroom" noises yourself while driving one of the EVs.....
  24. We really need a love button, man...... I'm really diggin this one! Is it resin?
  25. They're called the Greatest Generation for a reason, man...... The main ones who don't talk about their time in the Service are the Vietnam Vets. I guess because they were treated so poorly when they returned home.....
