  1. I would like to get a couple of these as well. Especially something that can be made into a competition pulling tractor. I believe a competition version of one of the tractors was released by Ertl, though I've never seen it.
  2. Did you clear over the primer? Was it your intent to build the car with an 'in primer' look? If so, forget the clear coat. Was it your intent to finish the car in gloss grey? If so, I see a couple problems. First, lots of junk in the finish. That will be a factor of your painting environment, and perhaps the windy day. Also, before applying the clear coat, rub the primer with 1500 grit sand paper, then wash thoroughly, blot off most of the water with a lint free cloth and let air dry thoroughly. Before painting, give the surface a quick wipe with a lint-free cloth wetted with alcohol
  3. Nice looking Pantera. Really digging the colour. Did you lower the front end at all? I have the same kit half done on the bench. It's a shame about those bubble windows, they really detract from the overall look. On mine I tried filing/sanding the windscreen from the inside to thin the edges, which helped some but not as much as I would have liked.
  4. This will be very interesting to watch. Shame about the body warpage. That looks tough to fix. It's a pretty significant problem for such an expensive kit.
  5. Beautiful Merc, and looks great paired with the Galaxie. Nice work.
  6. Well, that's one of the things. Funk seems to be oozing out several other places as well. Cool project. There is always a curiosity and intrigue surrounding Palmer kits. Modelling in detail the cars of Bizarro World. Looking forward to watching this build.
  7. Nice, tidy Highboy. Great period look. Nicely done.
  8. Cool look. I like it.
  9. This is another option for scribing tape
  10. Nice replica. Well done.
  11. Nice work on the Firebird. That came out great. The big Pontiac mill looks cool, too.
