  1. I love that! Cadillac should have built it like that back in the day! I think maybe they would have sold a lot more of them. Well done! My only mod would be to eliminate the vent window.?

  2. Is it just me or is the hobby getting totally out of hand cost wise? Now for starters, I live in Canada and our dollar is worth BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH, but it`s just as bad everywhere. I priced out a project using a resin body, a donor kit, aftermarket decals, and wheels/tires and the total amount with shipping was well over $ 120.00 CAD! Ok, it was my decision to take on the project and I`m am aware that cottage industries need to make some kind of profit for their work and I`m greatful to have these people out there, but I`m starting to eye my stash of kits and plan on finishing some and selling the rest. I`m really considering leaving the hobby entirely and adding to my die cast collection ( another subject for another day). Also, what about younger modelers, how are they supposed to afford all of this? Opinions?

  3. The pink Rolls Royce Belonged to Penelope from the original "Thunderbirds" BBC TV series in the late 60`s. There were several shows like that: "Fireball XL-5" and "Super Car" come to mind all done in "Supermarionation"! Those shows were awesome! Better than the garbage on TV nowadays.

  4. Outstanding work! I love old Indy roadsters as well as mid 60`s full bodied fuel dragsters! The most beautiful race cars on the planet in my opinion. I`m afraid my old eyes would cease to function after working on on such an intricate project. Now if someone were to do a 1/12th scale version of that car............

     

  5. Yeah that`s what I was getting to. I don`t have one of the Lindberg kits so I wasn`t sure as to what type of headers they included.  If anyone is looking for a set of the fenderwell type, MCW has them available. I have some of the Harts ones as well however I would use them on a pre - 63 Mopar vintage super stock build as they are probably more correct. Can`t wait to see yours finished.
