  1. I'll definitely be in on this offering...thank you for the work you're doing Tom.
  2. Excellent Matt, right up my alley! Good to see you're still at it too.
  3. Very nice, great job. Just got my order from you, fantastic quality! I will be ordering again soon.
  4. 1985 Chevy Blazer, Arizona Highway Patrol replica. This project started with a full resin kit from an eBay seller, that only need a few donor parts from the AMT GMC pickup kit of the same vintage. The kit looked pretty good online, but was very disappointing when I got it. I started it anyway, and found it to be pretty much unbuildable as is. The chassis was not workable and the body was not a good fit with any of the AMT donor parts. So on to plan B... I kept the resin rear quarters cut from the body, the interior and the rear roof section, and went to work on the AMT kit. I chopped the back
  5. See the man... 68 Belvedere built about 15 years ago. R&R Resin body, AMT 68 RR and Mono 69 Charger (chassis and engine) used as donors...
  6. That's a Caprice grille, the Impala/Bel Air grille was considerably different.
  7. Just finished this one a few months ago... 1965 Chevy Biscayne wagon, Boston PD. Built from the resin Modelhaus Impala wagon, "de-trimmed" to a Biscayne. Monogram Impala convertible used as the donor. Engine swap to a 327 from one of the other Rev/Mono kits. Custom decals, vacuum formed beacon, Modelhaus steel wheels and caps, Tamiya paints, blue and light gray as per the Boston scheme at the time.
  8. That looks really good Chuck. You did a nice job trying to get that dome to look like the Unity.
  9. This, along with all of your builds, needs to be in a special category...Museum Ready Replicas. But you know that's how I feel about your work. Stunning, Charlie. As always.
  10. Looking good on both cruisers... Chuck, just a suggestion for you and anyone else who likes the cruisers: I see you're using the JoHan Fury beacon light on your 57. The light that comes with that kit is the "high skirt" version of the Federal Signal beacon that NYPD used for many years. These were made special for NYPD so the light would clear the siren that they had on the roof in front of it. The standard Federal Signal beacon base should be a scale 5 inches, not the real high one. So to be truly accurate when not doing NYPD, the base needs to be trimmed down a bit.
  11. 66 Chevy Biscayne, Chicago PD...this is a collaboration of sorts. The body was done by a friend of mine, Dave Neuman of the Chicago area. He actually converted the Revell 65 Impala convertible body into a 66 Biscayne 4 door...no resin here. He did this a few years ago, before Revell introduced the 66 Impala kit. I was lucky enough to obtain this from him a few months back with the body all done, but nothing else completed. I sourced a 66 Biscayne interior from Model Car World and converted it to a 4 door, then built the chassis. I used Replica & Miniatures of MD resin 6 cylinder engine, as
  12. Rich, he's sometimes very slow with his emails. I did chat with him via email about 2 weeks ago. Keep trying,
  13. Impeccable workmanship...but that's the definition of all of your work. It says so in the dictionary right next to your name.
