  1. Superb. Just superb. Tony.
  2. One of mine... And although it's not one of my builds, this 1967 Airfix catalog shot of the MPC Woodie with Hot Curl and his bike and board needs including. Can anyone recreate the shot with a built model? That really would be cool. Airfix and MPC had a deal going on in the sixties to release each others kits. Although the Woodie appeared in two catalogues it's never yet been seen in an Airfix box.
  3. I've got a few old cans. I use them as photo props...
  4. Revell Willys Coupe. Rattle can red, rattle can clear over the decals. No Brand paints, bought from a pile 'em high cheapo store. Painted on a warm summers day about a year ago. The Gods were smiling at me that day.
  5. A couple of mine... The Airfix release of the MPC Monkeemobile. The Monogram ZZ Topp '34 Coupe. Tony.
  6. Very creative modelling there. Both look outstanding. Tony.

    That's a Car Craft, circa 1976, cover car! You nailed the look perfectly.
  8. Spot on! That one looks good from every angle. Well done indeed. Tony.
  9. The paint was a happy accident Mike. I bought a few rattle cans from a cheapo pile 'em high store near me, just to try them out. Big cans were £2.00, smaller ones 99p! They were no brand generic gold and black. The paints were a bit hot if the strong smell was any indication but the Tamiya white primer survived the first thin coat of black. I left that a day before hitting the body with a couple of wet coats of the same black and that went on really well. I make a ball of tape, sticky side out and put that on top of a spray can, then wedge it inside the roof of the body so I can turn the
  10. That one pushes all the right buttons for me, a rescued glue bomb finished to a very high standard and beautifully photographed. Tony.
  11. Nostalgic building at its best. Clean construction, smooth paintwork and enough detailing for the period. Congratulations.
  12. Very, very clean and tidy modelling going on there. Congratulations on a really fine build. Tony.
  13. That's a beautiful paint job. The side view is a real stunner as well, the Chargers lines just jump off the screen here. The Fireball carbs look outstanding, I've yet to order any but I can see me getting a few in the future. I'm waiting for a Fireball Tire Decal order to get here, that will be my first try out of the companies products. Tony.
  14. Very nice indeed. It looks like we used the same shade of Gold! After I painted and decaled mine, I realised that a coat or two of Tamiya clear yellow would have probably got the color closer to the box version. Tony.
  15. Thanks Guys, much appreciated. Here's the kit progression from the first big box through the Mattel years version and the travesty the car turned into, the Olds 442 Street Freak. It was good to see the kit reissued not too long ago, it gave me the chance to add a built version to my collection. Happy days! Tony.
