  1. THIS WHOLE SITUATION IS REALLY SAD . Over and over again this sort of bad-mouthin' each other over nothing, IS GETTING MORE COMMON HERE . WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR WORLD WHEN WE CAN'T EVEN KEEP OUR OWN HOBBY SANE???? A SAD DAY FOR THE HOBBY .
  2. Gues I'll pull out the dash tomorrow, disassemble it, and do some prep and paint-THANKS GUYS
  3. Looks like the dash get's re-painted tomorrow - Probably body color. THANKS GUY'S .
  4. J. , I love the old Lincolns, and yours is looking really great . Can't wait to see it all "SHINY". The old Lindberg kit isn't that bad if you take your time with it and just be patient. Here's a '48 I've had going for a while and a scratched-up '50 I hope to get back on after the first of the year - GOTTA FINISH THE AUBURN FIRST .
  5. Back in the early 50's, auto manufacturers used all kinds of colors inside and out.''Member back in the 60' when the dash was black no matter what color the interior was? The carpet will most likely be black, along with the tan interior and gray dash. Some of the high-end 20's and 30's cars did the same thing. (I may change it to tan if I get enough comments about not liking ther gray ). Glad you like the door panels Harry .
  6. Thanks everyone <img src="http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> . Door panels were way too plain, so I decided to "ART DECO" them with a few strips to add a little "PERSONALITY. Dash is installed, and the door panels assembled and are mocked up in the body to see what she looks like. Here's the latest
  7. Like everyone else here so far, I have to agree that this is a great place to meet people, make new friends, learn a ton of new things - YES, EVEN US 'OLD DOGS" CAN LEARN NEW TRICKS . Also fun to share here, because you get honest opinions and feedback, and that's helped me expand my building style even more - HEY, I USE WHITEWALLS NOW - I USED TA HATE 'UM . I have as much fun here as being at the clubs I belong to. Harry and Gregg really go the extra mile, and put up with our #%&*@ at times, because we're guy's . I don't think there's a better place be - dave
  8. THANKS EVERYONE <img src="http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> Started adding more of the stock beautiful chrome, and in my head the image of what this should look like started to change. Found a set of nice "White's" and then scrounged up this nice new "Wire's", and they fit together perfect with no alterations <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="cool.gif" /> - I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS
  9. Been thinkin' about all the stuff all you guys like to build, but we usually have to search around all the different topics to see all you stuff. Be fun to see all the different kinds of cars you like from Grand Prix, to tuners, to dragsters of all the decades, to street rods, Pocher kits (HARRY), classics, customs, rat-rods, weathered, or whatever - YOU GET THE IDEA <img src="http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="wink.gif" /> I'll start. Here's some of my fav's, I have a nice

  11. Well' been gettin' other stuff done, so will work on this and the '29 Auburn Cabin Boat-tail. This one will most likely get a two-tone tan/cream leather 4 bucket seat interior, and custom drive-line - maybe a baby dodge hemi from the Ala Kart kit <img src="http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> . Anyway, here's some shots as she stands now. I'm going to start adding the chrome pieces back on next, as this is a beautiful car with all the little chrome bits in place, a
  12. Yeah, HUUUUH 3 weeks - GEEZ - TAKES ME THAT LONG TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT . INCREDIBLE BUILD CODIE .
  13. Ron Your "RESTO" job came out beautiful . I learned something from yours - I'm not done - THOUGHT I WAS. I didn't know there was chrome on the hood "V", so I need to get the BMF back out and finish it. It looked pretty plain, so that'll help. Again, very nice, and really Rich looking in the "SILKY SMOOTH BLACK" .
  14. Kit prices seem to be getting a little crazy . I've had the Hasegawa kit for a number of years, and just got it out and looked at the price on the wrapper - $26. 95 - not bad now, but seemed high at the time years ago. Haven't looked at it for a long time, so opened it up, and it's a nice kit. Not sure if I ever looked at it. Don't care if the wheels aren't perfect - they still look nice. I'm not as picky as some. No door panel details, but looks pretty simple from my research to scratch some up, as they're pretty straight-forward and period plain. A little sheet plastic should make
  15. HUMOR CHALLANGED HE WAS ONLY KIDDING - YOU MISSED THE HAPPY FACE BOB (Too much expert and attitude, not enough fun )
  16. Hey Donny . This is a thread I did some time ago. I hope this may help you in the future - dave
  17. I'll toss my hat in on the KOTD. I think with so many varied interests here, as well as different age groups, and different styles of building, there probably won't be any one definitive answer. For me, the 60's and 80's were the best decades - YOU DIDN'T SPECIFY WHICH DECADE . I love the old AMT 50's and 60's kits of the Fords, Imperials and Lincolns. In the 80's, Italeri and Revell of Germany, and even Gunze Sangyo, came out with some of the most wonderful subject matter and beautifully detailed kits, that to me, still have no rival today ( Except the Tamiya Ferrari FXX) - THE GOLD
  18. I'm going to "Piggy-back" off what Peter has already said, because he's right . To me it's really exciting to see a modeler step up "His Game", and take risks in front of the whole world to see, and then pull off something this complicated and detailed, and look so right-on. Beautiful job Curt I applaud your choice of subject, and your new-found skills to complete it - dave
  19. Hey Mike This is coming along great. I love the colors . I have a Hasegawa bus sittin' and would love to get it started - TOO MANY PROJECTS, TOO LITTLE.... . I'll enjoy through yours .
  20. Thanks for all the sharing guy's . I think I set a record for myself for a complete finish. My stuff usually takes months or years, so done in a few days is pretty amazing for me . Got a couple minor pieces left and she's all done.I decided not to Alclad anything as the parts were't in that bad a shape once I cleaned them. Kinda nice to have everything pretty much original. All I really did was to polish out the plastic, and do a little color touch-up, and re-assemble. A very nicely molded, simple kit, that fits together really well, even by todays standards. Got the Mercer to
  21. Yeah, these are pretty nice old kits. Got the side trim BMF done, and the chrome windshield frame glued in place. I'll start getting some of the other pieces ready for Chrome Alclad ll. This's fun .
