    I agree.  I can look at C3 'Vettes all day, and this is going to be a nice one.  It seems like we're starting to see more people get sharp results with these FolkArt paints.  I may have to check them out for myself.

    That's got to be one of the best builds of that kit that I've seen on here, and your photography skills complement your modeling abilities.  Nicely done!

    Thanks, Captain Obvious.  As I said, these are basically 1/64 non-motorized diecast cars. What is keeping them moving along?

    I had quite a few of these cars as a kid, but they weren't motorized.  What is propelling these cars?

    Great subject, great color, great wheels & great stance.  Well done!

    The '67 Ford is one of my favorite 1:1 full-size cars, and although they seem to be rare, it's always nice to see a model of one built this nicely.  
    Al, I love the paint color choice.  Do you happen to have Testors' part number for that?  I don't see it in their listings.

    Tommy, will you be offering these headlight and tail light decals on your site?  Unless I missed them, I don't think they were on the link another member provided.

    Brian, one more question if you don't mind.  What specific paint did you use on the wheels?  It looks like it matches the stripes perfectly.

    I'm familiar with the flaws and shortcomings of that old AMT kit, which, to me, makes your build even more remarkable.  I assumed by now I'd seen just about every paint/interior combination out there, but yours, with its sinister black on red scheme enhanced by AMT's new tampo-printed tires, really stands out.  
    I don't think anyone's ever been satisfied with this kit's tail lights, so your decal tail light trick seems to be an upgrade as well.  
    One question:  did you replace or use some other technique to enhance the look of the headlights?  Yours look better than the chromed pieces that come as part of the grille assembly.

    Anybody have any builds in these colors?
    Some time ago I came across two cans of Testors' old (early '80s) Car Colors in a discount bin.  The labels have them listed as #1809 Gray Fern Metallic and #1811 Sand Gray Metallic, but the only indicator as to the true color is the little paper label on the top of the can.  
    Does anyone have pics of anything built with these colors?  I'd like to see what they look like on an actual kit body before opening them.

    Sorry, I think this setup inhales vigorously.  Anybody really buying that "It's to attract younger members" noise?  If they're interested in models, they'll find the sites.  They're good at stuff like that.
    I'm running Google Chrome and, among other annoyances, can't see any place to click for new content.

    As others have said, great build and great pictures.

    This was my favorite just because of the weathering, especially the wavy chrome trim along the side

    I hope we'll see more of your work soon

    The only thing that should be banned is politicizing a model because of its decals.

    Better start keeping a closer eye on the race cars, Harry. Some use products made by these guys, and I wouldn't want the perpetually-aggrieved pitchfork and torch gang to get the wrong idea.
