      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

As a hot wheels collector and scale auto enthusiast I just wanted to pay respect one more time on my 4th time visiting this thread. In my opinion you captured the theme perfectly. These cars are part of history. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for your 7th replica

These are great, Jim.....they remind me of Christmas 1968; probably the last day mine looked as good:lol:; still have 'em though - in the basement with my Matchbox cars.  Anxiously awaiting your Python build!

Like everyone else here who collects Hot Wheels as well as building 1/25th, this set is a fantastic crossover between the two genres.  I love that you went to the trouble of adding a rollpan to the Vette and changing the shape of the King T to match the Hot Wheels, even if the Hot Wheels isn't the prettiest rendition ever. 

When you have them all done, please post of a photo of all sixteen laid out together.  What an amazing project.

Cheers

Alan
