Very cool! I have a painted glue bomb of one of these, complete with instructions and many, maybe most of the optional/custom parts, but missing the rear bumper. Fortunately I was able to get one from Modelhaus before they closed up. I need to dig that thing out and rebuild it someday.

Got these at the Fulton, NY show and swap meet today. A long drive but it was nice seeing the contest and all.

Thanks Joe. As far as I know. That’s the last show for this year. With winter coming. I will have more than enough to keep me busy. Some one did mention there was a model car group in East Greenbush, NY but I haven’t found any info. Syracuse and Binghamton is as far as I want to go. I was told about a 3 day event in the Boston area but that’s too far. And there were about 4 more of that Nomad kit there Joe.

Wanna trade for a very nice built up I got from a guy a while back? :lol:

By the way Joe, the Olds fender wells are on their way.

Shipped on Thursday. ;)

Ah...nope! I'm going to do like William Devane fondling gold coins with his flippers. Open the box every year on the anniversary of its acquisition and just stare at it. :D Seriously, though, I have a plan for this. Thanks for the heads up on the fender wells.

I have plans for the '63 that you sent me as well.

Hopefully quite soon!

Took one look at those saws and ordered a set! (BTW they're $11.00 + $7.00 postage from Scale Motorsport - didn't see 'em listed on eBay or Amazon.)

Yep! I was thinking of doing mine box stock also with wires and plumbing.... It's a great kit!.. ☺️👍

I did see a build up of that very kit some years ago and it turned out beautiful once it was completed.... I should have saved those pictures.... My bad!... 🙁

An early Christmas!!

Mid summer I began poking around for a project to do over the winter and finally decided on a 3 car build. The kits are all Tamiya from BNA models, and the detail up goodies are from mainly Scale Motorsport and Crazy Modeler. 

The one and only 03 Enzo, the stunning hybrid FXX-K, and last but not least the very successful 2001 F1 car.

To make it short, I  had the orders together and the funds set aside for everything and planned to order in mid December. Unbenonced to me, my wonderful wife of 31 years had other plans all along.....UPS showed up at the door with packages in hand- the entire order! Yes sir, think I outta keep her?!!

Plan on getting underway with the first car the week of Thanksgiving, and really looking forward to it!

That's my "what did you get today" story!

I'm not thrilled with that either, but for the constant use I'll be getting from them I just figured it into the price of the tool.

Got these at Hobby Lobby today - Paint for an interior, a new flat black touch-up paint, and a fine tip Sharpie to experiment with on panel linesimage.thumb.jpg.2f00e32cd920dfc28cdd4d43afc1dc9b.jpg

 

And on my way out, this caught my eye.

I also found this very nice diecast 1:24 scale Shelby Cobra at Rite-Aid.

DON'T do panel lines with a black Sharpie. It looks awful and there's the chance that it can leach into and stain the surrounding paint in years to come. There are MUCH better ways to do panel lines. 

Do you happen to have the Monogram/Revell kit of the 427 Cobra? I'd be interested in hearing if the body is the same size as the Welly. I've seen diecast Cobras before, but they always look big to me--much bigger than 1/24-1/25 should be. But yours looks so nice that I might have to get one if the size is right.

Thank you for saying that Snake. I wasn’t sure if it would work or not, now I know.

The only Cobra 427 kit I have is the Monogram Shelby 427 Cobra Street, and here is the comparison of it.image.thumb.jpg.4b0889d058be803974109c586184eaab.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.d81c954cb513406c44b25a6153623312.jpg

Apologies for the missing parts on the Cobra - it is in the process of getting restored.
