  1. Thanks for the feedback. The photos are only 350 x 263 pixels. That would seem to be a low enough resolution. Are you guys looking at the mobile version or on a computer?
  2. Voting is taking place for our first Online Model Car Contest. There is a lot of time involved with making these models and the builders deserve your kudos. Here is a link to the entries page. http://www.tedsmodelingmarketplace.com/model-car-contest-entries/ Voting ends April 30th.
  3. No, I'm not currently a reseller for Micro Nitro. They can be purchased directly from MicroNitro.net.
  4. The wire wheels are fantastic looking. You can't get any more realistic than real wire wheels. They require work and it's going to be slow going at first, but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. They are available in 1/25 and 1/16 scales from Micro Nitro (www.MicroNitro.net) With the help of Bob Spedding's experimentation and expert building technique, I made directions for both scales. The photo above is one of Bob's completed wheels. They're available in a PDF file which I attached here. If you have any questions regarding the instructions, email me at TedsModeling@gmail.com. Jim, at Micro Nitro, has a wheel assembly fixture available which positions the hub and rim for lacing, but the instructions are still necessary to understand the lacing procedure and sequence.

  5. Jeff - It all looks so awesome. Those throttle bodies are excellent and you mentioned they were scaled after the real thing - great research work. Is the engine modeled after a specific Sonny's engine? If so, how do you get your measurements from them? Is that very first photo a pic of the valve covers?
  6. Daryl - Great job on this. I'm a real fan of Garlits. I don't see the decals for SR 13 (SAD013) on your Fotki page. I also can't find it in your pricing sheets. Are they still available?
  7. I'd like to know how you pack something like this for travel/shipping. Have any photos of the process you can pass along?
  8. Great start, Chris. I like your attention to detail and your willingness to devote the time to make it right. I also like the scripture of John as your signature.
  9. Really clean - I like it. The Willys pickup is one of my favorite body styles. The early Anglia is another.
  10. Tyrone - Did you fabricate the floor/wheel tubbs/firewall piece or is that from the kit? Looks like another winner-winner-chicken dinner!
  11. I really appreciate the little details that make it look realistic I keep looking at those welding heat stains on the suspension linkage parts - lovely how they taper/blend to nothing. How did you machine the 'notches' in the ring between the blower pulley and its spacer? Love the Micro Nitro Pro Mag. Did you use an anodized paint on it?
  12. I thought they came out with a new material, but then as you mentioned, it's the same White Strong Flexible material except it's tumbled to make the surface a little smoother.
  13. I'm bumping this thread. Any updates? Is this chassis the newer Strong White & Flexible Plastic which is a white nylon material?
  14. Henry - did you already cut it, so that you could get inside, or you haven't gotten to that point yet? Where would you make the cut, in order to not lose any strength in the chassis when it goes back together? Nice looking right at the start. Good job.
  15. Nicely done, Charlie! Another one to be proud of. How about a photo of your models as you have this displayed at home? A lineup could look like a crackelfest...
  16. What happened to the BNL carb photo from yesterday's post? I didn't get to see it.
  17. I swear sometimes I think I'm looking at photos of a real build on the shop floor. Outstanding and you can see the pride in your work.
  18. Excellent metal bending without the real-life forming tools. Are these brass pieces going to be welded (weld beads or tacks) or bolted in place?
  19. Really nice results, Rich. A gasser all the way, too. You kept to the original theme. Is that foil on the horizontal trim? Nice job.
  20. Glad to see you're keeping up this one after that long break! Thanks for the detailed descriptions because you make it look so easy.
  21. Looks like a nice clean build, Mike. You picked a great subject this time.
  22. If this was on Facebook, I'd have to click on LIKE. Good work Mike.
  23. Going back over this build again from the beginning, I appreciate you showing us small incremental steps of setting up and constructing the chassis. Most of the time we see the body and a few photos later it's mounted on the chassis. Thanks.
