  1. Fantastic job on this iconic muscle car!
  2. Thank you kind sir. Second one very unlikely, lol!
  3. Thank you! I’m not sure where I came up with the new tool thought.
  4. Just finished this one up after a very frustrating final assembly. I was very excited this being a new tool and made in the USA and all but it almost got launched across the room. I ended up cutting off the alternator, removing the battery and master cylinder and cutting small sections of core support and right front wheelhouse off to finally mate the extremely tight fitting body to the chassis. No glue required however! Front bumper was just as rough. Didn’t care for the kit hubcaps so I used some parts box rally wheels. The side mirror in the kit is greatly oversized so I used a smaller one out of my stash. I had originally painted it Model Masters Flame Red which was closer to a original color but it had to take a bath in the purple pond, unfortunately I couldn’t find another can of it. It now sits with Tamiya TS-39 Mica Red. All in all I suppose it turned out pretty well. Sore about the long winded rant but thanks for checking it out.
  5. Very cool! I would love to see this reissued.
  6. Amazing work on your build! I also like the look of this aircraft, thanks for sharing.
  7. Thank you sir, now I need to go back and reposition those mirrors.
  8. Great looking plane and I really like your camo. I’ve been struggling with mine and am wondering if you used a mask for the camo or free hand. Funny I just watched 633 Squadron last week.
  9. Just finished up the 1/48 scale Spitfire from Revell. Another fun aircraft build for my fleet that just keeps growing. Tried out the airbrush again with Apple Barrel acrylic English Ivy over Tamiya rattle can AS-22 RAF Dark Earth. Lower color is Apple Barrel acrylic Summer Sky airbrushed. Mr Hobby Matte Clear for the overall finish. link to a little history https://www.historics.co.uk/buying/auctions/2012-02-18/car/1941-spitfire-2a/
  10. This a Cubicfun 3D puzzle that my neighbors gave me for feeding there cat while they were cruising on this vessel on the Snake River. Press fit made of paper and foamboard. Nice break from glue and paints.
  11. Finished this low riding minivan that my son had gotten me last Christmas. I’ve always wanted a minivan but this will be as close as I’ll get. Paint is Tamiya TS-54 which I sprayed without any primer, body quality was flawless. Thanks for looking and enjoy.
  12. Thank you all guys! I have the Revell Supermarine Spitfire on the bench now.
  13. Thanks guys, I’m really enjoying these 1/48 scale builds I’ve been doing.
  14. Looks really nice Rich! I’ll agree this kit was a joy to build.
