      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Each and every time I look at this it gets better. Lots of work buy obviously worth the effort.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday and have to tell you this is a fantastic transkit.  I'm probably going to change my building priorities and do this one next.

    Much better on the head.

    This Is Most definately a kit car, and quite a nice one. Typically the wheel and tire combination are a dead give-away as are the external exhaust pipes on the drivers side. The same holds true for Duesenberg replicas. If you see pipes on the driver's side it ain't a real Auburn or Duesenberg.  The same is not true of Cords which were V8, not straight 8 powered.

    There is nothing about this model that I do not like.. except you built it and not me! Great model with no apologies needed.

    Excellent execution on this one. You have good reason to be proud of it.

    You have that right. That is a super cool video.

    Actually a better question is if a starter and generator would be inappropriate. It is fundamental to understand that the Model T Ford was in near constant evolution.  That being understood,  one could order a Model T with or without an electric starter and generator beginning in 1919, though today you will see many cars built prior to that year (including both of my 1915's) that have been retrofitted with electric starters and generators. This is not a task for the feint of heart as the engine and transmission have to come out and completely apart. In any case, your engine as it is now is a very authentic representation of an unequipped Ford engine. Adding a starter and generator along with the coil box would look good too but if this was my project I'd skip those items. Hope that long winded response helps.

    One small detail that is missing is the Magneto Post. It is a small protruding plug above the transmission inspection cover.  I'll fun out to the garage and get you a photo.  This is an engine that o wish was located under the hood of my 26 Runabout project!

    You would know better than i. While I have owned many 60's Lincolns I have never had a 64. I like where you are going with this one and you have inspired me to get at my 61 project.

    I  think John DeLorean would have called in Zora Arkus  Duntov,  who would have been up for the challenge!  Great engine and I'm loving the evolution of the diorama.

    Great start! If you need any reference photos from a 1:1 engine pm me with your e-mail and I'll send s Ok me photos to you. I'm maxed out on posting photos otherwise I'd post them here for you.

    I am watching with interest.  I have owned many 1:1 Continental Convertibles and have a goal to have models of all the 61-67 convertibles in 1:25 scale.  Your 64 is looking excellent.  I agree with dark green.  Maybe the light jade insidd? Just a thought.

    Art, any thoughts about getting this one back out. It seems too nice to abandon now.

    Great news for Duesenberg fans
    Aardvark models has released a resin transkit for the Monogram Duesenberg.  This is a non supercharged Rollston Torpedo Victoria.  I just ordered mine. I'll let you know how it looks. Expensive at about  $95 shipped, I expect it to be worth it based on Andy Martin's previous work. I'm pretty juiced about this one.
