    Excellent! Love the color.
  2. All beautifully6 done. I plan to do them all. I've got a Willys coupe, just need to add the other ones.
  3. Great start! I can't wait to see the finished car.
  4. That's type of guy he was. Never wanted to be called a hero, didn't want the limelight. Being so humble made him an even bigger hero to me and a lot of other people. I watched him "touch down" with a college buddy. We had just graduated 2 months earlier. We both had goose bumps. Young kids grew up with the knowledge that we'd been to the moon and it wasn't a big deal. Folks in my age bracket (68) were totally in awe of the whole space program and the moon landings especially.
  5. Is this the one you want? http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1485
  6. I am so sad to hear this. I watched with fascination when he put that first foot down on the moon. You're right he was one of our greatest American heroes.
  7. Very good! What did you use for the snow?
  8. I've seen it. A really good look at 60s GP racing. The years leading up to 1980 are my favorite for F1 racing but man they were so deadly.
  9. Stunning! Love the color. Either the BMF work is perfect or you have the steadiest hand anywhere.
  10. Great job! I need to send you my BRE Datsun 510 to do the two tone paint on it.
  11. Nice job. It looks fast just sitting there.
  12. Differences of opinion are just that, opinions, and like hind parts, everyone's got one and some stink. I like the way you did it. The BMF would be too shiny. The green looks fine to me.
  13. Beautiful work. I especially like the 11. A local friend was going to do a run of those in 1:1 and wanted to call them The Eastlake 11. East Lake is an area here in Chattanooga, TN. He built one that I know of. It was beautiful, but green of course. I like the yellow!
  14. It may be your first shot at scratch building but I think you've figured it out. I'm impressed.
  15. Execllent! Love that color.
  16. Nice! Purple, my wifes' favorite.
  17. I don;t blame you, I'd be proud too. Beautiful build.
  18. I immediately said a long Oooooooooooooooooo. Stunningly beautiful. I love the clean simple lines.
  19. I actually attended the 1963 Oakland roadster Show. I was in the US Navy and attending Radar School on Treasure Island, between San Fran and Oakland during that time. Bought a sweatshirt from Ed Roth with "Mother's Worry" on the front. He autographed it. I had a bunch of pictures but 50 years later, they're in a land fill somewhere with the sweatshirt. Can't attest to the accuracy of the diorama but it does seem familiar. I especially remember the red Merc. I think Roth's booth was on the left but then, it could just be my imagination.
  20. Great work! They look like winners to me.
