  1. Well Done! Looks better than mine! I only had one set of decals to work with so I was VERY careful with them and used nearly a third of a bottle of MicroSol trying to get them to conform to the bends of the body. I didn't tear any, so I was pleased The side windows took a lot of "persuasion" before I got them to fit. Lots of sanding, filing and finagling, and I'm still not happy with how they fit, but I'm hesitant to do more to them for fear of breaking them.
  2. Thanks for the kind words y'all. I guess when I compare my skills to those of John Teresi, Chris Soback, Dave Thibodeau and some of the other guys on here, I'm not even a hack builder. I do enjoy building models and I try to build, older less common subjects when i can get my hands on them. I'll try to post a few more that I deem worthy of this board.
  3. I've built models off and on for almost 50 years, and I've followed builds on this board for some time now but never posted one of my own. I build for fun, and I'm not particularly good, but like I said, its for fun. This was a kit my wife found for me and I thoroughly enjoyed building it. The paint is Testor's rattle can Classic White and Blue Angel Blue on the body. The blue was shot over black to get it darker like the hood decal. THe frame is French Blue. I've not seen this model on here before, so I hope you guys like it. Steve
  4. Outstanding work! Great photography too. This turned out very well. If I may ask, where did you get Snake decals for the Late 1970 FED? Looks like you used the Mongoose kit, but I've never seen Snake decals for it.
  5. I noticed you mentioned in the "Drag RacingModels" forum that you don't use airbrush, only cans. What color/brand of can paint did you use on this body, and how do you get such great finish on your car using can paint? Fantastic paint job and fantastic detail. LOVE IT!!
  6. Thanks W-409. Yeah, I've been watching E(vil)bay, but at present, the decals for sale there are not the one I need. I'll keep watching, and hoping someone here can help. Thanks to all.
  7. Sorry for the double post. Anybody have input on this?
  8. I am trying to get the items assembled to build the white "Snake II" Cuda funny car and the blue "Mongoose II" Duster. I know Slixx made the McEwen decals, but they are no longer on their website. Does anyone have a source for these decals or does anyone have a set they would be willing to part with? Thanks in advance!!
  9. May be old news to all y'all, but I was just on SLIXX' website and the website has an announcement that says they have reconsidered and are going to continue to produce decals. They are going to restructure, and some items they have sold will no longer be available, but at least they are not closing. YEAH!!
  10. Awesome diorama, with amazing detail and realism. Don't know if y'all know this. but this diorama was featured in the NHRA Dragster Insider column by Phil Burgess on March 2, 2011. Here is a link to the column, you'll have to scroll down to the March 2 column. http://www.nhra.com/blog/dragster-insider/
  11. Can you tell us what paint and paint colors you used for this one?
  12. What paint and what color did you use to get the "Ford" Petty Blue? I've got this kit in my "to do" list and I'm curious.
  13. Exactly what I'm looking for! Any idea of where I might locate a similar set?
  14. Help PLEASE! I am trying to locate Ramchargers decals for a 1968-1979 Dodge Dart Funny Car. I've tried e-bay, Whoopie Kat, etc. without success so far. According to my research, the Funny Car I'm building was sponsored by Gratiot Auto Supply, NOT Hodges Dodge as some of the Ramchargers earlier cars had been. Any help, leads, info, etc. greatly appreciated! Thank You!!
  15. Very nice!! Nice detail. What brand and color paint did you use on the body? Steve
