  1. Calling it done, warts and all......................
  2. Almost ready to go racing......................
  3. Looks great. You did a good job despite the problems you had. Haven't started mine yet, waiting to hear from Revell about that windshield frame.
  4. Looks really good Bob. I will check it out in the under glass section. I used that form you posted and sent Revell some photos of my windshield frame about 2 weeks ago, have not heard back from them.

  6. Picked up the GremlinX from Ollie's. Got the Charger Stock Car from ebay. Haven't decided what decals I'm going to do on the Charger yet.
  7. I got them for keepsakes only. I will never use them. Just remember seeing him using them a lot. I also used them some back in the day when I was younger, and learned a lot from him on how to maintain and repair my vehicles. I'm 70 now and I don't do much mechanic work anymore.
  8. My Dad passed away last week. He was 99. Most of his life he was employed in the forestry industry, first working in his dad's sawmill operation and later his own logging outfit. He was also a shade tree mechanic, always working on some type of vehicle from large trucks to lawnmowers. Friends, family and others would always come to him when they needed any repairs, rebuilds, etc. I remember he had a bunch of Chilton's and Motor's repair manuals. Going through some of his stuff I found these. They are in fairly good shape except for a old musky book smell. The truck manual seems to be from 1968.
  9. Thanks Bob. Did you send photos of the warped frame?
  10. I'm getting out of office responses. The first contact said out of office and no email forwarding, and gave a alternative contact. Tried that one and got the same response.
  11. Finished up the decals. Working on the interior................
  12. Thanks. I sent them a email asking for a replacement. It will probably be a month or longer before I start on it anyway.
  13. Just checked, yep mine is warped too. Mine is worse on the top, I may be able to cut it off and get the bottom to fit right.
  14. I have this kit but have not opened it yet. I'll have to check it and see if mine has the warped frame. Your build is looking good Bob. Wheels look great.
