  1. Can you tell us about this top? Is this just the top from the Johan kit or did you massage this one to fit? Again, incredible work here.
  2. That's the car. I think the guy standing behind the car wearing the white shirt is me.
  3. I really can't remember but I think I took the 31 Franklin Pirate Phaeton the year we were in that class. I have been a volunteer at the local Museum and have had the privilege of showing cars on their behalf for many years. My own cars are pretty modest. I do have a Full Classic Cadillac convertible but it's pretty tame when compared to a mighty V-16.
  4. And here we have another great Cadillac. I am glad I checked in today!
  5. This is exactly the sort of model I love to see. I agree with Pico, this is inspiring. I'll be watching, and perhaps copying, this one. I remember seeing the maroon car at St. Johns a few years back. I had the misfortune of showing a car in the same class. Several of us were talking when it arrived and the consensus was it would be the class winner, and it was. Not surprisingly, I did not place!
  6. I will gladly subscribe to the rebooted magazine and wish you tremendous success. It will give me one more reason to go to the mailbox. As an aside, I build almost nothing but replica stock and was a great fan of the STRICTLY STOCK column. I will look forward to seeing it reappear.
  7. The first one I remember was #41, the Ford GT. My favorite was #73, the Mercury station wagon with the superfast wheels. I don't think it was ever beaten i a race. Unclear why it was so fast, but it was a little rocket.
  8. I just completed my second phase of a complete collection of Lesney Matchbox cars. In my initial phase of collecting I only wanted an example of every model in the 1968 catalogue. My next phase, completed today was to have a boxed version to add as an accompaniment. As anyone who is into Matchbox collecting know, this is only the beginning.
  9. While I am not traditionally a Cadillac man this car was far too good to pass over. It's a 1937 Cadillac V-8 70 Series Fleetwood convertible sedan. I'm pretty fired up in own it.
  10. Tell me when you want to get back on yours and I will join you for a mini group build.
  11. I really like where the OP is going with this model. I have always liked '37 and '38 Fords. While I am a stock builder much of the time, I can't help wondering if this kit could be adapted to a factory stock model. Maybe someday...I will continue to watch this with interest!
  12. That is a really neat Ford wagon!
  13. I've not had time to check in for a while. You continue to post some amazing work.
  14. Now THAT is a unique look. You mentioned that the Johan kit had been retooled. Not true. What happened is parts came out of my Mercedes parts box. Likely, yours truly mixed up Monogram, Heller and Johan Mercedes parts. Sorry if that created problems for you. The model is looking great though!
  15. These images are of two different 1929 Model 640 Packard Victorias but should give you an idea what I am trying to build.
