  1. Revell Miata Mk1

    I have owned three of these cars in 1:1 scale including a '95 M Edition in Merlot Mica. You really are doing a fine job here. The car obviously has a ton of underhood plumbing which could complicate a full detail job. I like the middle of the road path you are taking. I will continue to watch this with interest.

    I haven't had much of an opportunity to check in but find your work just keeps getting better and better.
  3. 1948 Lincoln Continental

    As I recall, yes, you were going to do the '48 and we swapped for a '40 AMT Ford Coupe I plan to uae as a donor for a '40 Ford woody. In thought on wheels. You could build the hubcaps using buttons with the '41 hubcaps for centers. They would say Lincoln that way. Not 100% accurate, but a lot better than what you have. Just an idea.

    I think I have seen that green one somewhere before!
  5. ICM Model T Speedster

    I really like the build up of the engine on the stand. For accuracy sake it's off 90 degrees if using the water inlet housing or 180 if using a hoist. There isn't enough strength to hold a T engine by its tail so when removing or installing an engine we pull them from the middle (between #2 and #3), using an eyelet in #3 (shown) or using the head bolts between #3 and #4). That way you are lifting using somthing drilled into iron instead of aluminum and sheet metal. The hogshead (transmission cover) is cast in brittle aluminum and the engine pan really is nothing more than sheet metal. Hope the photo of my 1:1 (1913) helps.

    I have always liked the lines of this car. You have really got a nice model in this one and were wise to glue everything shut. I would do the same if I ever tackled it again. Well done!
  7. Aardvark Maserati Tipo 61

    This is a really beautiful model. I like everything about it!
  8. Revell BMW 507

    Wow! Absolutely fabulous build up of one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Great color choice too.
  9. '57 Pontiac stock Sedan Delivery

    Unbelievably good. Highly professional. And on one on.
  10. Deux Chevaux.

    Perhaps, but the Aztec was never cool. The 2CV is. I tend to agree with the others Bout the cuteness factor. Nice model! I wish it was mine.

    Monogram kit? Looks the part for sure. Great work.
  12. 76 Plymouth Fury Tyler TX PD

    That is very realistic. I grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, right at the Ontario crossing. They had pale green Customs cars up there that looked a lot like your excellent model. Thanks for the memory.
  13. 1978 LAPD Plymouth Fury Patrol Car

    That sure looks the part. Well done!
  14. 1966 Shelby Mustang

    I like it. I always thought the fastback was the coolest Mustang and the Shelby the coolest of those...your model has certainly done it justice. Very nice.
  15. 69 Buick Electra conv

    I like that as a model. I would like it even more as a 1:1 in my garage! Very nice.
