  1. Nicely done! Shame the kit stock carbs look more like legos than carburetors. Definitely a shortcoming of the kit, not a reflection of the builder.
  2. Have a couple of kits to trade. The Daytona is brand new and factory sealed. The Sprint Car is complete, less decals. My Interests include: Revell/Monogram hot rods,1st and 3rd gen F bodies, pick up trucks ('90s or older), Revell/Monogram '40 Ford Coupe Street Rod, Revell '48 Ford custom Coupe, Revell '37 Ford Pick up Street Rod I'm open to offers - unbuilt kits please.
  3. i love these old squarebodies. looks great
  4. Looks fantastic - you should be proud of this one!
  5. Think I can help you out with that. send me a PM and we can sort out how to get you the instructions
  6. Looks good. The extra little detail on the hood bulge really pops with the finished paint.
  7. Very impressive detail. Nice work!

  9. This will never be a show model, so I'm going to finish it in box stock form and display it in my son's bedroom (he loves this truck!). Restoration includes the tonneau cover being painted black to hide the Ford decal. Still need to touch up the tail gate and bed sides. I love the blown big block in this kit!
  10. The body is painted with Inca Gold Lacquer as the base, Transparent Red Enamel, and details were highlighted with Model Master Turn Signal Yellow, and Acrylic Neon Green. One Coat Clear topped things off (can you guess my mistake). Mixing enamel and lacquer was an oversight on my part and not intentional. End result was the obvious wrinkling of the clear coat. Being 20 years old, the decals did not fare well either. Excessive amounts of Micro Sol did not resolve the issue. After 5 years, you can call this a restoration or a rescue project. Somehow, I managed to wet sand the wrinkles and give the body a decent shine. Time to pick up where I left off. Sorry, no "before" pics.
