    Cool! I really love the gear in the back.

    I swear I've seen that car in my local junkyard. I think it would be a neat idea to make it look like it's still somebody's daily driver. I'll be keeping a close eye as I planned something similar with the AMT 72 Nova that I have.

    Nice Vette Mark! How many awesome cars do you have in 1:1? The subtle road weathering looks perfect!

    Sweet truck Dan! I always love seeing your 4x4s. I especially love the big mirrors, bumper mounted spare, and the old Thriftmaster. Great work!

    After a few minutes of hunting, I found this online. Hope it helps.
    *I just realized this was a 66. It might help anyway though.

    Here's an updated pic of my 1990 Chevy  Astro

  7. wrecker388 added a post in a topic Cannonball Run 2016 "The Aussieball" Official Build Thread   

    I finally have an update on the F-1. I decided to go with a Pre-Runner style as the 97-03 truck I used for a donor is known for their use as such. I will be attempting to create a Currie Enterprises 9 Inch rear end and a Lovell 357 Transfer case. Notice I didn't say scratchbuilt from styrene . I'll reveal my secret in my next update. I've decided to swap  the Triton 4.6 to the 302 from the Revell 32 Coupe. I chose this because I actually know the 302 in my Thunderbird whereas I don't know squat about the 4.6.

    I should probably mention that the Charger is an old build that I used for a temporary space holder. Not sure what ends up under the carport yet.

    1940 Ford Coupe Barn Find Diorama
    This is the Lindberg kit from the L-700 Combo. I built the car at school during my art class. I built the diorama in one evening so  I could display the coupe in it during my School's annual art show. They have a tradition of letting senior artists display all of their work on their own table, and since I'm less than great at non-modeling mediums, I chose to display some of my other models, including my shop dio, as well. My art teacher liked the Coupe Dio so much that he offered to buy it. I told him that I'd rather replicate the Patina'd 51 Chevy truck he has instead. There are more pictures of all of my art show stuff in my Photobucket if you're interested. Thanks for looking. Any comments good or bad welcome.

    I forget what this was called but I think it comes pretty close. It's some type of metallic thread that I think came from Jo-Ann fabrics in the clearance aisle. I think it was packaged with gold and silver. Here's a picture of it used on my 34 Ford Tow Truck. I wish I remembered the name so I could be of better help.

    I don't think these kits would sell very well if produced. Like has already been stated, there are already 3 different versions of the Delorean in its Back To The Future form. As for the Bricklin, most people have never even heard of or seen one. The only places I've ever seen it mentioned (besides here) is in lists of the worst cars of all time. I could sooner see kit manufacturers tooling up a Pontiac Aztek and selling it with its Breaking Bad tie in.

    Very, very nice!

    Looks great so far!
  14. wrecker388 added a post in a topic STAR WARS / DRAG CAR   

    I could see somebody doing that with a prop from the movie that had been left for dead. That is wicked cool and crazy creative.

    Try hitting up discount stores in your area. I don't know if you have ever heard of Ollie's Bargain outlet, but they are hard to beat on just about everything they sell. However, their stock changes constantly so what you'll get is hit or miss. I've found House Of Kolor paint brushes specifically for hobby there. They constantly have massive buyouts of the Dupli-Color paint mentioned above, for around $2 a can Vs. $8 at most Automotive stores. And every now and then, They will have a buyout of model kits themselves. They typically run around $8 when they do have them.
