  1. Great model of a deserving subject. Very nice!
  2. I did. It's been a couple years back. Believe me, your Roadster Pickup is vastly superior to any of mine.
  3. I would suggest getting ahold of an AMT 23-25 Model T kit. There are lots of parts in those kits that can help complete this one. I'll look forward to seeing yours.
  4. This is fantastic. I have a friend who just finished up a New Zealand export version of the Model T (a real one) and your model looks almost exactly like it. I am a multiple Model T owner in 1:1 scale and I have built the only complete set of all six of the Improved Fords in 1:25 scale. You, my friend NAILED IT!
  5. Olivia responded "they are all really nice." I find she is advanced in her modeling skills far beyond where I was at her age. It won't be long before she is raiding my kit stash...and I ap pretty okay with that.
  6. Thank you everyone. I've shared these posts with her and she just grins. David, you are right. I don't know the scale of her model for sure but I would have to say around 1/32 or so. Clearly it is small as the whole diorama is about a 4-5" square, at most.
  7. No. This is 100% her. The only thing I have done for her is to show her how to prop things in place, or clamp them so the dry as she wants.
  8. First off this is not automobile related but I thought you all would appreciate this effort. My daughter Olivia builds room dioramas. This is her most recent build. Every one of them has gotten better, neater and more precise. I think she has a very bright modeling future. Her dad (me) is very proud of her.
  9. I like this one. I agree with the others that your colors work very well. I saw this car (the 1:1) running at OCF maybe 5-7 years ago and it was incredible. I would love to see the Henry Ford restore it to its original color combination, given the financial status of most major museums today I doubt it will ever happen. Again, great model.
  10. This is a really fabulous model in one of my favorite color schemes. Nicely done!
  11. This came out really well. Nicely done. It makes me want to build one!
  12. You really captured the feel of this one. Very nice.
  13. These are great. You have some real talent. Here is the Cabriolet and the Tudor I did years ago. They have nowhere near the detail of your kits but convey the idea.
  14. I too have built all of yhe Hubley/Gabriel kits and added a Tudor sedan and a Cabriolet with dual sidemounts. I would be very interested in seeing how you built an A-400. I'll definitely follow this with interest.
  15. Wow! What's not to like? This is a great and faithful to the Marque model. I like it a lot.
  16. I like it. I have been sort of looking for a chance to add a 1:1 Corvair to my collection. Your model reminds me of what I want one...especially if I found a car that was a great color like that.
  17. I can't believe I missed this one as well. This is one of those rare models that are very hard to tell if it is a model or the real thing. Fabulous build.
  18. That's a great idea. I'll have to give that a try. Candidly I find I am not very good at spraying Alclad so your technique might be a good alternative.
  19. I like this a lot. I've never had this kit but every time I see a good one like yours I get the desire to build one. Well done!
  20. Good eye. The Coupelet is an Aardvark/Model Martin transkit. It included the body, interior. Top, hood, radiator, fenders and litte doo-dads like top irons and door handles. Andy Martin is a contributor here and could address the question in more detail. In the case of my build, I used the '25 Ford Model T Runabout for the chassis, running gear and wheels. I had Chrometech plate the small parts brass but they seem to have disappeared so I am not sure who I would use now. Hope that helps a little.
  21. Yes, you should finish this one. I for one would love to see it.
  22. Thanks again for all your compliments. I have one more photo after adding a Michigan 1911 license plate.
  23. That is awesome and looks the part 100%. I even like the colors!
  24. Many of you are probably familiar with the Tonka street scene diorama featuring, among other things, a 1913 Ford Touring car. Over the years I have placed a number of completed brass era cars in this scene. It only seemed fitting to see how my newly finished 1911 Chevrolet Touring would look in there. Not too bad in my opinion. I need to try to get some working lights for this diorama. Enjoy.
