  1. Chris, Way back in 2012 I happened across this website and saw the amazing things you were accomplishing. 6 years later and I still came back to tell you what an amazing build this is! Your imagination and detail are amazing - thank you for bringing us along to see how you pulled all these things off! Congratulations!
  2. Oh my goodness. Sir, you are the 21st century equivalent to CarToons, on steroids! Way to think outside the box! Great job!
  3. Cale, I think it looks COOL with that stance! Although there are a lot of builders who absolutely want to build a 1:1 in 1/25 scale, I remember the FUN when I was starting modeling of building what my imagination came up with...I used to call mine "junkers" but they were the most fun builds of all. There's no right or wrong, and if you want to go with wire rims, go for it! I'm watching!
  4. Chris, Best of luck in 2018 in all things...I'm a lurker who's been watching your Snake Vega take place since you cut the rear hoop off it. There's a legion of us who have been amazed by all the out of the park details you've plugged in - I wonder if Hendricks wouldn't find your tribute fascinating NOW, huh? You're in the home stretch...you got this!
  5. Tim, Your builds are amazing! For the love of all things good, no more bee stings in 2018! Loving your AA/FA!
  6. I'll be watching! I never knew of this truck until I saw your post about your plans to build it. Very cool subject!
  7. My family goes way back in the transportation business, and I'm interested in building a momento of that. Does any company make material that would work for the sides of this? I've thought about gluing ribbing to sheet styrene, but I'm thinking it would be almost impossible to be consistent with the size of the ribbing and the layout. Perhaps I ought to consider getting some 3d printed.
  8. Absolutely LOVE the 'what if' ideas. That's the beautiful part of modeling is that only your imagination is the limiting factor. What if Don Carlton had a nitro breathing brute, ala 'Fantasia'? Would it have been a tank? Could he have beaten the old altered funny cars with it? I think your Willys is one of the cooler ideas I have seen in the drag racing part of the forums in a long time! And your paint looks AWESOME!
  9. Very nice work so far! Looking forward to seeing more of your handiwork.
  10. lol I keep coming back to see if there's an update...it sort of reminds me of looking in the local record store as a kid to see if Boston had released a 2nd album We understand life gets in the way hehe.
  11. Looking forward to seeing color on this...are you planning on weatherizing it, Terry? I compliment your sense of scale, your builds just look "right". I can see a lot of your trucks rumbling down the street if I close my eyes and think of it.
  12. Chris, Have you ever seen any of the model kits released in the 70s that had the chute open (deployed)? Since you were talking about different ways you might display your AWESOME funny car, thought I'd throw that idea out! Your attention to detail still amazes me, I've been following this journey for well over a year and LOVE the updates!
  13. VERY NICE! I remember building this kit many years ago myself...seems like it was molded a grape purple - it's been awhile.
