  1. Thanks for the reply. The pix are very helpful. Again, nice build. Later-
  2. Sam- That is a beautiful job. Although I don't see any of the silver painted trim you should really try BMF. It is kind of a bear to get the hang of (at least it was for me), it really adds to the realism. Again, a great looking build. Later-
  3. Jairus- Didn't you do a drawing of a monocolor green 64 Galaxie with a 427 sans hood? Later-
  4. Chan- Those are all very nice and realistic looking builds. Do you have any suspension detail shots for the Chevy? Where did you source the parts from? I am wanting to do a lifted 76 Chevy Stepside but I really don't want to have to scratchbuild it all. Later-
  5. Nice job on the build. I can't wait to build mine soon. Also, I agree. I have that book too and it is a wealth of great photos and info. Thanks for sharing your build. Later-
  6. Toby- Looks good. What source did you use for the 4X4 parts? I want to do a lift like that on a 76 Stepside. Later-
  7. I Love It. Great look. How did you do the glass beads in the headlights and where did you get them? More info please. Later-
  8. Mike- The changes are small but looking good. What is that windshield frame from? That kit is a pretty big block of resin, if I'm not mistaken. My buddy had one of the Flintstone Studes that he actually took the time to sand down and open the hood. Must have taken him a week. LOL What color or other mods do you have planned? Later-
  9. Railfreak- No. You are thinking of the Old Pro 72 Nova kit. This is a new release 69 Nova. It is a beautiful kit. Pick one up. That paint job is looking fantastic. What color is it? Does the 68 Vette come with two complete engines or does it just have the blower parts to add to the stock block? Keep it up and hit us with the updates soon. Later-
  10. This build is looking awesome. I had that 77 Dodge kit up until about a year ago and I sold it. How STUPID am I now??? Please, Don't answer that. Keep up the great work. I love the color scheme. Later-
  11. What a beautiful build! Clean, simple and tasteful. One to be proud of. Nice job. Later-
  12. Bernard- Thanks for the reply. Yes, I still have some fine details to touch up. That is the area where I stretched the top and those little window trim edges are so small that they are hard to duplicate and sand smooth. I'll get them eventually, though. Tonight I got the interior bucket from the 50 out to see how it fits and I had to cut off the tulip panel area(?) (Back panel under the rear window) The 50 Ford's is an indented area for the convertible top to fit in when dropped. So, I dug out the styrene sheet and made a flat one. I could have cut the one off of the 49 Coupe kit and swapped the two to build a 49 Ford Convertible. I saved the part from the 50 in case I DO want to build a 49 Ford Vert in the future. Right now I have enough future projects. Later-
  13. I started this conversion for my cousin who has a 1:1 and wanted a model of it. I took measurements from his car to build it as accurate as possible. Since one didn't exist in kit form, I combined the body of a 50 Ford convertible with a stretched roof of a 49 Coupe. I shaved off the drip rail. I also made molds of the thinly molded trunk hinges to replace after the major body work was complete. Today was the third primer coat and I don't have many touch-ups left to do. I should be able to get the drip rails and hinges on by the end of next week (I don't get much time to build). Once I get the drip rails and hinges on I'll do a final update. I was only supposed to do the initial body work for my cousin so that he could finish the build. I may update it with his final photos, but no promises. Thanks for looking and any comments are always welcome. Later-
  14. Juergen- What an outstanding job you are doing on this Boss! What is not to like? Your work is top notch. Keep it up and let us see more photos. Later-
  15. Marcos- That is going to be a fantastic build. I also prefer the hardtop to the convertible. Unfortunately, I only have the vert. I like that choice of paint too. Keep it up. Later-
  16. That is pretty cool. I've never heard of one. It looks like with what you have come up with that it could easily be converted to making a working light bar for a police/emergency vehicle. Nice job. Later-
  17. Beautiful job on your RoadRunner. Thanks. Later-
  18. I have two kits that I was wondering if they would fit. They don't have all of the body flares and all, but in one of the first posts I noticed someone put BMW M1. I have a 1/24 BMW M1 Marlboro Pro Car Kit made by Ertl/Esci. I also have a 1/24AirFix Series 5 Lotus Espri. Would these qualify? With scratchbuilding for the body panels? I don't have time for a build off, but thought that I might use some of your ref. photos for when I want to build them. Thanks for your time. Later-
  19. Jameston- That is looking great. I like the decal work with the pinstripes. Have you managed to get some paint in spray cans yet? I did get an airbrush given to me recently but I don't have a hose for it yet. How can I get a list of your paints available? Later-
  20. Walther- Looking good so far for your first. I like a lot about that kit. I have two and I try to get one when I find them. I am putting the engine from one into a 55 Ford Pickup that I am customizing. I am also using the seats, instrument panel and steering wheel. Keep the photos coming and we'll try to be gentle. LOL. Later-
  21. Nice Merc. I like the grille work. What Lindberg Kaiser kit are the wheels from? Is this a typo? I didn't know there was a Kaiser kit out there. If so, I need info on it. Please PM me if such a kit exists. Thanks. Later-
  22. Nice wok and paint job. I like the detail of the spare tire in the trunk. Thanks for sharing. Later-
  23. Dave- What a very well done, clean build. I like the top chop and the engine swap. At first I didn't like the choice of wheels, But after I looked at it again I like them because they aren't seen on builds everyday. They go well with the rest of the truck. Thanks for sharing. Later-
  24. James- Your work on that kit is superb! I love the details on the tires. It turned out great for having a few minor flaws. Too bad you had to glue the hood shut. I looked at that kit many times on the store shelves and thought about getting it, but never did. Later-
  25. That is an interesting looking kit. I always wondered what the inside looked like. You've done a great job on it. I've only known of one other person to build one. I think it was Pat Covert, but I could be wrong. Looks good. Later-
