    Sounds like you're looking for louvers in all the wrong places.

    I see scale modeling as the intersection of art and engineering, and neither can thrive if limited to arbitrary rules which stifle innovation.
     Also, the manner in which a work of art is displayed can do much to enhance the viewers enjoyment.  This, in my opinion, is what your photographs accomplish.  So, by all means, carry on as you have.
    As an aside, I would also enjoy seeing your models photographed from multiple angles and with a less distracting background, in addition to your usual stunning displays.

    Very nice.

    Nice collection of pickups here, but they're all too clean and shiny.  I'll add mine just to bring it "down to earth", as it were.

    There's an old joke amongst luthiers:
    Q: What would a luthier do if he won the lottery?
    A: Keep building guitars until he ran out of money.

    Wow! that Sears conversion must have had some serious "grunt";  Dual tranies, A two speed rear end And a monster chain reduction!  Might not have been fast but I'll bet not much would stop it.
    Oh, I almost forgot, I really like your model as well.  That crosscut saw looks a lot like the one I have hanging in my shop.

    Nice, crisp edges on those stripes.  What do you use for masking?

    I'll be in my bunk.

    I'm a huge fan of '60s open wheel racers, and I could easily see this along side a Lotus type 49 at Watkins Glenn.  Fantastic imagineering.

    If you're ditching the snow tires, send 'em to me for a nostalgia build.  It seems like every car I owned from high school till I got married had those same tires on the back end.
  13. Shardik added a post in a topic What European automotive subjects would YOU like the see as a 1/24 scale kit?   

    Everything I might suggest has already been enumerated, with the exception of the fairly rare Triumph TR3C.

    You just keep knockin' these outta' the park, Mike.  Great weathering and scratch building, as usual.
    I think you need to write a book.

    Another awesome, creative build!
