    Here is an example of what I'm saying:
    My last build, the '57 Fairlane 500 Club Vicky.
    I called it done, but later, I had an idea of a couple of cool details I could add and that would make the car to look nicer.

    Thanks gentlemen!!

    Yep, I know your taste is more into those kinds of cars, and Mopars, that you build like nobody else. I have a great admiration for your work. 
    I'm a Ford guy. more like into the low price field. Think I only built one Buick, a Deuce and a Quarter. And that, because I could take reference pictures of a 1:1 that was in superb condition. 
    Fords are the cars I grew around, and are the cars  I work on almost on a daily basis. Last week I replaced the four ball joints of a 1956 Fairlane. Also did a tune up on the Holley 4000 Teapot, and replaced the eight spark plugs (NOS Champion F-14Y) and spark plug wires. On a 292 Y-Block, it's not a job for the faint of heart. The spark plug wires have four retainers/organizers, bolted to the heads and engine block.

    Ferrero Rocher candy wrap. Is semigloss, and even has the correct texture. Looks like it was made to be used on the 1:25 '57 Ford.
    Not to mention that someone has to eat the candy
    Hard work, but I'll do it for my models.

    Very nice replica. Loved the colors and the quality of the foil work.
    You know, I never cared much about this car, but then I saw one in person, and WOW, the thing is huge, and has a very very low stance, that I dig a lot. 
    Still don't care much about the '54 tough. Trying to find one of those kits here in Brasil, but when I do, the seller wants a fortune.

    '57 Fords are getting popular here!! 
    Go home '57 Chevys!!
    Nice wagon, by the way.

    Thanks again guys!!
    When I took the pictures I had forgotten a few very small detail, that I added to the car yesterday. 
    Here they are:
    Black stripes on the rear bumper:

    15? Yeah, 15. Not conting the ones unbuilt. 
    Yes, I have an addiction. Somehow, couldn't find the "1957 Fordsters anonymous" to seek help

    Separate nightmares, like in the AMT 1962 Thunderbird. That's how I call them. Like that car is a convertible, aligning up the windshield frame and both vents is not for the faint of heart
  12. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic Will we ever see their like again?   

    Well, I drive daily a 1974 car, with 1966 styling, and 1957 engine. Really couldn't care less for what's in the dealers today. Yes, it has bias ply tires, a V8, chrome (real steel) a carburetor, points, condenser, and never, ever let me down. I just drive once in a while my mother's Focus, mainly to do regular maintenance, like oil changes, and so, and when I do so, I miss my old Ford a lot.

    I have a problem...
    I have the most annoying habit.
    I can't leave my done models alone.
    I'm always improving them, with things I could had added when built them in the first place, but didn't.
    Example? Redoing a badge, adding a set of white wall tires, painting some detail I missed, adding that perfect rearview mirror that came as an accessory on a kit that won't use it, adding a decal, or even changing things like wheels and tires.
    Anyone else?
