  1. Absolutely stunning pair. I love the concept of bot models forming a set.
  2. And here are a couple other photos. Since these were taken the small but noticeable gaps have been sealed up.
  3. While there are some more details I have reached a significant milestone. The body is finally just about the right shape and the top is right behind it. Here you see the body tub in nearly finished form with the first coat of primer applied. I have done more work on the beltline molding as well. A couple mor sandings and a couple more peices of trim, then...dare I say it? Color! Thanks to all who have come along with me for the ride.

  5. This has to be the very best model of a Cord 812 Phaeton extant. I agree with all the others that it is a great kit but you have gone so far beyond the kit it is amazing. I would love to see what you could do with a Monogram Duesenberg.
  6. As always David, your work is ambitious and highly successful. I am enjoying the work and appreciate that you have allowed the rest of us to go along for the ride! Please keep us posted as you progress. Eric
  7. Oh man is that cool. Both of them are really. Nothing not to like here.
  8. I am a huge Lincoln fan. You have certainly done a fine job with this. Your WIP was first rate. No wonder you got such beautiful results.
  9. Charlie, I like how you think. I never knowingly deviate from the color combination of an actual car. I mean no offense to anyone else but I always build models of actual cars and never what I think of as "a model of a model." That's just me. That said, Blondie, the cream car actually has a very dark blue on the chassis and striping. I find myself leaning increasingly toward that one, in part because I really don't want to paint the wheels. So, we'll see.
  10. It is sort of a fun renaissance. I still have dreams that one of the model makers will drop one more classic on us but don't hold a lot of hope. In the meantime the Cord has become my one and only model project.
  11. I like it. The two models parked together exude real class. Right now there is a Duesenberg Phaeton making the Concours rounds with painted wheels (albiet with stainless steel spokes) It's a knockout of a car. Yours looks great. I'm surprised how well the Packard windshield fits this body. It looks right at home there. Nice job Pat.
  12. I really like the color combination on this.
  13. So two steps forward and three steps back. I have been sidelined FCC or quite a while because of family matters but decided to get back on this one. I wasn't happy with the mating of the body and the hood/grill assembly so I've been working on that transition. It will be better with the cowl molding in place. Also the beltline molding wasn't lining up with the hood so that needed work also. It doesn't look like much but is heading in the right direction.
  14. I agree with the others. This is a super build of a super car. I have always liked the Firebird better than the Camaro, especially in this era. You are going to inspire a lot of us to go hunting for this kit!
  15. This is both awesome and painful at yhe same time. How many good restorable cars did we lose this way? You certainly have captured the spirit of the event!
