    Really nice! Love the color combination and passenger leg room!
  2. Oh man, this is a tuffy. Been trying to decide which of these two spectacular builds I like best. I'm going with the Chevy Wagon, no wait, I'll pick the 32 Ford, yes, no, yes. Both are great...but the Ford is more my cup of team...make that "flask of Templeton Rye."
  3. What a productive year! Very cool well built models and a nice variety! Keep it up in 23. Just added this....I couldn't resist. All are great, but the Eldo is my fav. Wolud like to see more pics (at least four each). But that might impact your productivity this year!
  4. Super! Nice job, great choices, flawless execution!!!!
  5. Perfection! Excelent job and one of the cleanest I've ever seen. What's next? can't wait!
  6. Very nice! Really well done. Great attention tio detail. Can't recall exactly where I snagged the resin kit four or five years ago. Off the internet somewhere I'm sure. Had some challenges, like two left-hand rear suspensions in the kit, nothing for the right side, and a few other things. Revell's kit was a dream compared to that.
  7. Finially completed the #9 Ford GT40 (Revell's reissue of the Fujimi kit) to go along with the #6 car (a resin model) in my collection. Chassis # 1075 was first and only car to date to win Le Mans back to back. Pedro Rodriquez & Lucien Bianchi won the 1968 race and Jacky Ickx and Jackie Oliver drove the same chassis to a win the following year. Enjoy...
  8. Took a break from kit bashing to build the Ford GT40s from the historic 1966 1,2,3 Le Mans finish. The last pic below was the running order before Ford turned the moment into a publicity stunt that cost Ken Miles the win.
  9. Beautiful work! Reminds me of the 1974 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham I took over camand from my grandfather after he hung up his keys in 1982.
  10. Hi...thanks for the compliments! Hi...thanks for the compliments! This was a fun one. I shot the body with three coats of Tamiya Bare Metal (TS-12), made most of the decals with my fuzzy inkjet printer, then used a small hand punch to simulate over 1,000 rivets, wiped Tamiya Black Panel Line over everything and gave it three coats of Tamiya Clear (TS-13). I am really happy how it turned out. One of my favorites too!!!
  11. Thanks! I was blown away after seeing the real car (Thunderbelle) and just had to create my version. This is one of my favorites too!!!!
  12. Haaa...just told Tom K. that he should race you for pinks in his 65 Nova Gasser. Go gettem!
  13. I do like it! Great job, particularly on the patina! Let me know when/where you are going to race Zippi's recent Chevy II for pinks...?
  14. Nice job Zippi Looks ready for pink slips!
  15. Thank you Scott. I tried my darnedest to recreate my exact 1:1. The doors were challenging mainly because once opened body rigidity flew right out the window. Plus the body was pretty warped to start with. Yes, the rear wheel openings are odd...big gap at the front, exposed tires at the rear. When did you build your kit...?
