All of these are really great, but the Green Firebird really does it for me....an old girl friend of mine had that exact car, Black vinyl roof and all, right down to the redline tires.....sure brings back memories. Sweet!

This is beautiful stuff that I haven't seen before, Jeff, especially the vinyl tops. What was your technique with the tops?

These are all AWFUL!! You should pack them up and send them to me. :P Seriously, these are ALL some fantastic builds! I especially like the Firebird! If I were to come into a large sum of money, I would get one exactly like it!! B) I'm curious about the wheels/tires/dogdish cap treatment on the Dart; I'd love to do a similar combination on mine when I get around to it. That T/A looks the business B) Thanks for shariing these and please forgive my ill attempt at humor; I suck at it sometimes. I really dig these builds. B)

Philip here is a link to the Dart with more pics

Skip the Dart was the Mr. Norms version with a molded vinyl top. For the Firebird I glues 2 think styrene strips to the roof to simulate the seam, then speckle painted the top with semi gloss enamel paint. I held the can a ways away from the body and did short bursts do the speckles of paint lay on the top and create a texture.

Antonio the dog dishes are Modelhaus resin and the hubcaps are also resin that I bought from Marc Nellis a few years back, and are based off the 70 Roadunner caps. I chromed them up with that ginsu powder stuff (I can never remember what that stuff is called LOL).

Thanks to all for the comments.
