  1. I'm late to the party on this one but, as I have said before...I hate big-a** chunky bumpers so I'm loving this!
  2. Looks like a great candidate for my buffing process... Buffing tool
  3. Larry, please don't get me wrong...I thought the quality of the paper was above par. All things considered, the magazine is impressive and informative with lots of great content and not boring in the slightest. Every time I finished an article, I'm reminded of the words my female English Professor, Miss Rankin, told me..."Any short story (or article in this case) should be like a woman's hemline...long enough to cover the subject and just short enough to hold your attention and still be interesting!" I have to admit, her physical demonstration of that definition helped to instill that i
  4. Larry...got my copy today and thumbed through and read a few of the articles. Nice to see this magazine getting back on its feet. Well laid out with great, well rounded and detailed content regardless of the model building skill level of the reader. There’s something for everyone interested in the automotive modeling hobby! One thing I noticed, besides the great coverage, was the quality of the paper stock. I wrote for Toy Cars and Models until it’s death a few years ago and always hated the thin rag that was used. Barely heavier than glossy toilet paper! It was one of the thin
  5. Has anybody ever dealt with Fugu Garage? I see they are located in Moscow, Russia
  6. Randy, got my order yesterday (on my Birthday, no less). First time with Clearly Scale parts and I am quite impressed! Thanks for the speedy service, Randy despite the snowstorm!
  7. Slow progress but I was looking at the grill/front bumper and got a little crazy. I decided it needed the grill opened. I sacrificed the headlamp buckets but some round stock solved that and help to strengthen it. I attached it to the body, added some primer and mocked up with the lower valance... also drilled out the rotors and painted accordingly That’s it for now!
  8. This is what I was trying to say in another post about ICEMAN COLLECTIONS being great! Unfortunately the picture I referenced from ICEMAN generated a bit of criticism as the engine was a bit dusty. Iceman Collections are very good and I have bought a fair share for my projects regardless of how others may feel.
  9. Glad I didn't start my kit yet, I like this better. Any idea of the Price?
  10. OK then, nevermind. However, the ones I have used from Iceman Collections were very good. That said, everything needs some clean-up. Just trying to help.
  11. I have used engines from ICEMAN Collections (Ebay and Shapeways) with great success! This one is sharp and should fit nicely... Chevy LS Cross Ram
  12. Thanks Tom. If you have a picture of your engine bay, I'd love to see it Not sure what I am going to do with the engine bay. I'm not a big fan of the molded in Battery and Washer/Overflow bottle or whatever that thing is. For the battery, I'm thinking just cutting it out making a tray and drop something a little more realistic looking in it. I also opted to use the seats from the Viper. I still haven't figured out just where I want to go with this tho'. Just kinda making it up as I go using the F-n-F GTX for a little inspiration with a good dose of imagination gently stirred in.
