  1. Thanks all for the high praise, it is much appreciated. I thought I’d post a video of the Impala on my track for the full effect. Hopefully this works. Thanks, TR IMG_0015.MOV
  2. My most resent completion is a tribute to the 1961 Impala Dan Gurney raced in Britain. I left the numbers off of this car but did go for the white steel wheels. As with all of my completed models I convert them to slot cars but with full interior and engine left in place. This allows me to see the cars in action! Here are some shots of the car as well as a photo of the real car for reference. Thanks, TR
  3. Hubcaps are on the way, Thanks All, TR
  4. My grandpa was a pretty lucky guy, unfortunately the corvette was damaged in a rear end collision in the mid 60s. He sold the car and has regretted it ever since. This year though we discovered that the car still exists and has been restored. Now to find the owner.... Mr. Cox I will let you know if I still need the hubcaps. Thanks for the help. TR
  5. Hopefully someone will be able to spare a set of Dodge Lancer spinner hubcaps for me. I am hoping to use them to recreate my grandfather's 1955 corvette he had in high school which is pictured below. Thanks for the help! TR
  6. Thanks for responding, which size of styrene do you recommend? Did you also scratch build the gas cap as well? Thanks for the help. TR
  7. Mr. Ellifritt, I was curious how you made the silverado side trim on your model? My brother has a 1977 GMC Sierra Classic which has the same trim, and I was hoping to replicate his truck. Did you lengthen a short bed as well? Thanks, TR
  8. Thanks! I'll have to post updated pictures soon. Stay Tuned. Thanks, TR
  9. I appreciate the replies. I did some research and discovered the the Coca-Cola 1957 Chevy does include fender skirts. Looks like I'll have to pick one up. Thanks, TR
  10. I am hoping to build a replica of my dad's 1957 Chevy which he restored and was wondering which releases of the kit in 1/25 scale include fender skirts? Here is a picture of the of the car I'm planning on modeling. Thanks In Advance, TR
  11. P.S. Just click on the link below the pictures to see the video.
  12. Thanks for all the enthusiasm. This build is nearing the end as I have have mounted the hood, doors and glass. To add another twist to this build I mounted it to a slot car chassis which I do with all my models. Although it differs from regular slot cars because it still includes a full detailed engine and interior. I have included a video of it running around my track and I must say I'm pretty pleased with it. Hopefully the video works. Thanks, TR IMG_4142.MOV
  13. Thanks for all the support and interest! I got the body painted and it turns out paint really never goes bad as long as it doesn't dry out. The paint is far from perfect but I thought it wasn't bad for a first attempt and for the paint being 55 years old. I also pinstriped the body as best as I could. Work Continues... Thanks, TR
  14. Quick update, the engine has been mounted to the frame and the floor has also been painted. The fenders have also been painted and turned out pretty well considering this is my first time painting lacquer. The rims and tires turned out great as well, thanks again to JollySipper who sent them to me. Now to paint the body and I have a special plan for that. First a little background, my grandpa who restored and painted this sedan has been painting cars since about 1965. He even painted my Impala last year at age 80! Anyways when he painted cars he would keep the extra paint. We went out to his h
  15. Thanks for the advice and support so far in the build. School has kept me pretty busy lately but I did manage to get the engine assembled and painted. I also painted the frame and suspension components. The build continues...
