No....I don’t clear coat the Alclad......I try not to handle the Alclad as much as possible .....I use soft tissues to handle .....and if some rubs off , I just re-Alclad what ever area rubbed off

thanks

I didn't think you did but I had to ask as there's lots of handling during the build. Always learnin' from you John. Always.

So much to soak in John.  I just looked at your start date of this thread and just can NOT understand how you do this at such a high level and yet so quickly.   Far too many details to compliment you on, but obviously another stunning Teresi build.   cheers, tim

First things first, incredible (as per normal) work on all aspects and details on the build. Secondly, props on the prop. Yes John, I did have to do that and you know it.

Secondarily, yes, (Thanx 4 Askin'), I'm fine. For those of you who know me, since I stopped building models, I changed course and have gone ape doo-doo on Legos.

In my ongoing depressive state, I couldn't generate the motivation to do what John and y'all do to compete. Painting was never my strong suit, but construction, now we're talking.

I've done Star Wars Legos on and off while still modeling. Now it encompasses my entire home. I've added display cases and about 40 new builds in the last year.

Easy peasy, no wiring, plumbing or paint. Old modelers never die, they just move on to a different phase.

Anyway, I'm always watching, so if the question ever comes up, "I wonder if Zilla saw that?" That would be a yes.

A special hello to all of the MCM Family and all of the friends I've made here. I'd start naming you all, (Chris, Tim, Brad, Dave.....), but we'd be here all day.

Hi-Jack Complete. I now return you to Southside Johnny's Traveling Automotorcar Show.

That is some Mighty Fine and Impressive work there Johnny Boy. To build a high detailed and scratch built build in less than 2 months. I don't know how you do it but you always do gorgeous work. Looks like it's time for a new build.

I checked this thread again today and am completely out of superlatives to use as compliments for your work. I have reread everything hoping to find what you used for the hose clamp detail on the engine but didn't find it. What did you use?

Hi....I believe they are made from MAS :Machined Alluminum Speciaties?.....my good friend sent them to me as a gift......but, I’m pretty sure that’s who makes them?

Thanks

Johnny, this is such a wicked build, its just over the top, seriously over the top. Say, I've studied the photos and I can't see where the pistol and rifle went. Can you show some pictures of them? Actually, I just want to see more pictures.  :lol::lol:

If I remember correctly the hand gun on the real truck was on the center console along with some shotgun shells in a custom holder. That sounds odd until you find out that those shells were used to start those radial engines when they were still in the aircraft they were built for.

Where are we at with this one John? This beauty looks like it's pretty much all but finished in the last few updates but I don't see an "Under Glass" thread on it.

WOW! Amazing work! I have a hard time believing that this level of quality and detail can be done in 1/25 scale!
