  1. Very cool Alan, nice job!
  2. Thanks for the nice comments everyone! karbuildr…. If you use the search function on this website you’ll see several other Munster Koaches that were done VERY well including a few custom built ones!
  3. My wife gave this to me along with the Drag-U-la a few years ago. Pretty much OOB. I'm working on the Drag-U-La now.
  4. Very cool Daniel! Of all your trikes, I like this one best and I like the colors you used.
  5. I have to agree with you Matt. I built the 2573 piece Lego Land Rover a couple years ago. No I didn't have to trim flash, sand out mold defects, paint or glue or any number of things that a typical model requires. It's a different experience that requires strict adherence to the instructions and doesn't allow much, if any, customization. Similar to your BMW, the Rover has working steering, a very complicated working 4-speed sequential gearbox, all wheel drive with 3 differentials, independent suspension, a detailed in-line 6-cylinder engine with moving pistons and a working winch. Cool build Matt, I like it!
  6. Cool Nova! I had a 1:1 '78 back in the day. It was my first brand new new car. Ordered it from a dealer in Milford OH and I paid cash for it. I remember the salesman having to get the manager because he never had a customer that paid for a car entirely in cash!
  7. I got these today in the mail from Spotlight Hobbies. I'm gonna build the Sterling Marlin #14 Tennessee Volunteers car from the Monte Carlo. Thanks Volzfan for the idea! I'll be getting the decals soon from 3 Amigos. A friend had the 1:1 Firebird back in the day in that shade of green. I'll be painting it the same color.
  8. Very nice! I built this kit about 4 years ago but did not shorten the chassis as you did. I wish I had. However I had no problems with any of the decals, but I really expected to, especially the larger ones.
  9. Wow, beautiful paint and excellent photography! Nice job.
  10. Beautiful job! I love those early Torinos.
  11. Thanks for the details Steve! I'll see if I can locate one of these kits. Go Vols!
  12. My wife is a huge Tennessee Vols fan-football and basketball. We drive down from Cincinnati to Knoxville and attend 2-3 games a year. And were a huge fan of Smokey too! She's a NASCAR fan to a lesser extent. I've got to build one of these for her! Can you please tell me Steve, what kit did you use to build this? And the color you used looks spot-on for Vols orange. Nice job!
  13. Wow that is fantastic Shawn! And even more so this being your first time at weathering and creating a diorama! I have yet to do either one but someday I hope to try it. Great job! Love the beat up wheel covers on the fence and the milk crates too!
  14. Looks great Dan! I I really like the engine bay details. I built this kit a while back, pretty much box stock, and painted it green with white rally stripes. Your selection of yellow looks good.
  15. I like it! Looks great with the whitewalls!
  16. According to the manufacturer it is 1:10 scale.
  17. My mother in law got this for me for Christmas 15 months ago. Made from 739 pieces of .150” thick laminated wood pieces. It’s 13.8” long and has opening doors, windows roll up and down, opening hood and trunk with latches, wipers operate with a knob, working front and rear suspension, operating forward and reverse gears, steerable front wheels, and tiltable seat backs. Wind it up with the mechanism in the trunk and it will go forward or in reverse depending on the position of the column mounted shift lever. The pistons in the V-8 move up and down when it’s moving. Comes with a tool kit and operating jack. Not something I would normally build, but it was a different type of challenge.
  18. That is a beautiful color landman. Can I ask what it is?
  19. 😄. My beagle would chew up all my work too if I didn't push it far enough back on the bench so he couldn't get to it! He sometimes lays on the floor next to me when I'm building, just waiting for something to fall.
  20. Thank you everyone! I went back and saw your Trick Trike....awesome! That color does pop in the sun for sure. That tonneou cover did come with the kit. My brother saw pics of the model with the cover on it and he thought that I made it out of some actual fabric! I must say it does have the right fabric "texture" molded in.
  21. I agree with Sledsel, that’s one your best!
