  1. Ok, I quit.... this is just insane. Great detail.
  2. Great job... I really like the looks of the new Miata/MX5. But I gotta say, I REALLY like the way it looks with the hard top from the Beemer (which I also like very much).
  3. Wow! That engine looks fantastic!
  4. So that trailer is an example of "uncharted territory" and you "jumping in the deep end"? I jump in the same deep end and I drown, you win gold medals and set world records. Just plain not fair.. After 24 pages and nearly 500 replies to this absolutely brilliant build, I'm still in awe at your abilities... Thank you for sharing this with us all. Happy Holidays....
  5. Holy BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH!!!!! that is some outstanding work.
  6. So lately I've been doing a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff, like filling sanding, priming, sanding, glueing, etc... But I have also taken a stab at doing some wood grain. I used a variation of dark and light yellow craft paint for the base coat and a tube of really dark brown, raw umber I think, Artists oil paint. Most tutorials suggest to use an acrylic like testors or vallejo for the base coat, and after using the craft paint, I would also suggest it.. lol Anyway, here's what I've come up with. Chopped sides and tailgate: Interior roof slats/support: Finally, the floorbo
  7. Good stuff.. just wish there was a video tutorial. Although not quite the same results as Uschi, I've found a couple tutorials on youtube. Scalemodeladdict has a good one that is not very "grainy", which is what I'm looking for. thx everyone for the nice comments.. more to come slowly, but surely.
  8. It's been a while.. I have a very tiny update. I did not like the interior roof so I decided to scratch build a new one. I am now at the stage where I am attempting the simulated wood grain.. wish me luck..
  9. That is awesome... My 10 yr old son and I love that show. I better not let him see that, or I'll have to do that to his room. I might have to do it anyways.. thx for showing that... Is that just painted on or what? a fathead maybe?
  10. Ace - I just happened to see that thread the other day. I like what you've done so far. My kit doesn't have wheels and tires like that. Mine has wire wheels and performance tires. (not sure how else to describe them).
  11. that purple absolutely pops... looks great, love your carbon fiber work as well. looks great.
  12. very cool... love the color. My tv seems to always be on the Velocity channel, and I saw one of them on Mecum auctions yesterday.
  13. Thanks for the comments guys. I appreciate it. As far as what parts I am looking for, I didn't really have anything in mind, it was more of a general statement. But I will definitely ask if I find I need something. Steven - Sorry bud... but I happen to really like the wire wheels that come with this kit and I was definitely planning on using them. If not on this kit then on a t-bird build that I have in mind. I don't think they look as good, but I have the ones from the 32 ford roadster. (one of my 2 parts boxes)
