  1. Not really, Roger. I thought that too at first, but looking at the model from the same angle, the headlight edge is still visible. It is a minor point, but once again, Chip took a little artistic license here. It is not a criticism just reality. It seems a little strange to me that the price I paid and the comment about Chip drive the responses. I guess if I show any other builds here, I will omit the thought process since that seems to be lost here.
  2. Foose Dodge Coronet I think most of us, if not all of us here, respect Chip Foose’s talent for design. Obviously Revell sees Chip’s name as a huge draw that will help them sell product. He puts his name and a rendering on the box, and here-to-fore old castings get a new life. Such is the case with the 1967 Dodge Coronet. Foose adds a set of wheels and a custom stripe on his rendering and Revell expects his name to carry enough weight to move them off the shelf as a unique version of the same old kit. Note the clearance price sticker. My son stumbled across this kit and picked
  3. Happy Birthday Peter. Enjoy your special day. Best wishes.

      Thanks, much appreciated.

  4. Looks pretty darn good to me. It is a shame the striping paint blead a bit. but short of that, it looks real nice. I have built a number of the Fujimi kits as well as a number of the Revell kits. My only hang-up with the Fujimi kit is the wheel height. I lowered the ride height on my builds and it looks better to me. Well done.
  5. Very well done, not your usual cup of tea, certainly different. I love the creativity and taking up the challenge of doing something different. Box stock is simple, but throwing away the instruction sheet and breaking new ground is infinitely more gratifying. Nice job.
  6. Great execution on a unique design. Very cool.
  7. I have a number of favorite builds. Here in no particular order.This car has a remote control sunroof that opens and closesThe rear section of this one opens and closed by remote control
  8. Chevrolet was getting great reviews in the early 50s when they showcased the new Corvette. Looking to build on the great press, and kind of, spread the excitement around other GM brands, the Corvette chassis was "loaned out" to the other design studios under the corporate umbrella. Buick basically took the rear three quarters of the Corvette with minor taillight changes and dropped on the front end styling from their road cars, and presto, they had a sport roadster to showcase. In the early version of the car, it has a very unique feature in that the headlights were mounted next to the wind
  9. Beautiful paint! Super clean and crisp. I did one in metallic red, personally, the Miura is my favorite Lambo since it has the cleanest and most flowing lines. Todays Lambo's are amazing, but I find the angular lines rather "off putting" compared to the smooth lines of the Miura.
  10. Completed Testors (early Fujimi kit) Impulse. See WIP post if you are interested in the plan and early build with body modifications. Painted Rust-oleum Matte Citron. Top layered with Jacquard Pearl Ex Pigment Interference gold mixed with Tamiya gloss clear, then topped with Tamiya pearl clear with a final topping of Tamiya gloss clear. Carbon fiber hood decal material is a sheet of Scale Motorsport cut to fit. Window were sprayed with Tamiya smoke on the inside surface and black marker used for the window borders. Hood scoop is to bring in fresh air to the turbo intercooler. Interio
  11. Very well done. I did a very similar version with the hardtop from the Corvette Hardtop grafted on into a race car also. Looks great, like the idea of the vinyl paint mask rings. Different.
  12. Very nicely done, I am really looking forward to seeing the C9R kit. Whenever Revell of Germany gets around to it. Nice color. The C8, is the mid engine Corvette that the car magazines have been teasing us with for the past 40 years. Finally here, and Chevy, most definingly got it right.
  13. Very nice. I enjoy seeing different color Ferrari's. Red is nice, but it is getting a bite boring. I have a 250 GTO which I will be doing in moss pale green since there is a real one that color and it is so different looking. But, I do like the metallic moss green you did.
  14. Looks great, I just love the split bumper second generation Camaros, and this looks like a wonderful representation of the car.
