  1. Hmm, The first attempt looks good on all 4's but I can see where you are coming from. I can't wait to see your "second" attempt at this with this new build. Keep us posted. I'm watchin' for sure.
  2. OK, I'm back with a MAJOR UPDATE! I decided (yet still can go back if need to) that the stock Dually Bed wasn't going to work. So from memory I started fabricating from the extra bed floor a Utility Box like the ones I used to make many years ago. I'm on the second round of plasti-putty (homemade stuff) on the cab. So, with that yammerin' out of the way. On to the pics! Still got a ton to do to make it right. Doors, hinges, etc. Enjoy for now!
  3. Thanx for the shot of the hinges and the compliment. I lost mine somewhere. LoL Can't wait to see an update on your build. I'll be back on mine after I get a few projects out of the way. Waiting patiently.
  4. Simply stunning work! I really like the colour and it does come close to the 1:1. I can't wait to see them finished up and displayed for all to see. I agree, where did you get the braided craft wire? I looked at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and HobbyTownUSA with no prevail. Much appreciated. Great work!
  5. Stunning work as usual Cruz! I am really likin' this project. Everything is coming together like a well orchestrated concert. Keep up the great work! I can't wait to see more.
  6. That is really interesting! I like how the Dual Cowl Car came out. This 2 seater is going to be a perfect stable mate for it. Can't wait to see more on it. The Corvette Frame and such sounds like the perfect winner to me. Keep us updated as I"m watchin' this one.
  7. Welcome back. Off to a good start. I'm watchin'.
  8. I don't build drag cars that often, but I do know when one is done with patience and lots of it. Y'all's li'l "mini tutorials" on building these for the average builder is awesome! I'm sorry I haven't commented before now. Y'all are doin' a great job and it's turning out beautifully. Keep it up and I'm watching for sure.
  9. Um, DanielG You gotta watch them wild Hacksaws! They do have a tend to get unruley and bite back from time to time. I learned this lesson many times myself. You are off to a great start and you get better my friend. I can't wait to see more on this conversion. The 58 Turned out Awesome and I know this is in good capable hands.
  10. Rom, you and your "bright ideas" are jus' blinding me. LmAo Seriously, I love the LED lights and your skills are jus' impressive! Sorry I haven't commented before this but my hands (as well as other things) have been outta sorts. The engine, dual steering, and the cab switcheroo is all coming together beautifully! I can't wait to see where this goes next! Keep up the outstanding work my friend.
  11. OOooh! A Rocco! Sorry you've lost interest in it. I've been lookin' for this kit for awhile now. You are doin' a great job on it. Don't give up! I really have to say that the BBS Wheels look stunning on this! The Rocco, Jettas, and Wabbits (hehe ) are the best VW's put out that were Water Cooled. I can't wait to see more on this build. If it's getting frustrating jus' put it down, walk away, and come back when you are calmer.
  12. Man, this is turning out great! I started building the A-Team Van to replicate a van I used to own but then gave up as the door hinges eluded me. I converted mine to a Chevrolet. Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see more on this. Especially when you start tryin' to weather it. Keep them updates a comin'! Here's my 1989 Chevy G20:
  13. That's the spirit! LoL Great lookin' Maro. I'm a big time fan of these GM babies. I dunno how many times I've cracked the windscreen only to have to make a new one. Keep up the great work! When I get a badly warped/twisted kit I put it in hot water and gently massage it back in place. If it still refuses to "dewarp" then I build it as a Drag Car and make it look like it's launching from the starting line. Keep on building, you're doin' great!
  14. This build is comin' right along. I like how you are turning it from one year to another. On the video update. Awesome song and with the build keep us updated! I like it. Can't wait to see more. BTW: I read the comments and I couldn't agree more with what has been said. Some lurk, others jus' read, and then there some like myself who do both but I will comment. Sometimes writing comments is hard due to the fact of having Rheumatoid Arthritis. Keep up the outstanding work!
  15. Sorry for not having an update. Been a tad sick (long story) but should be back on this one soon. Thanx to those who have commented on this so far.
  16. Thanx man! I should have a small update this evening sometime.
  17. First off, Thanx to all who are watching and to those commenting. This keeps me motivated to keep going on this build. I've got a small update, Sept. 30th, 2010. I have extended the Interior Tub and the Frame. Everything is roughed in and the door panels for the rear have been done too. Everything still needs fine tuned but getting the "rough ins" done first then comes the fine tuning. Enjoy! Sorry it's not more. Time is limited to work on models working 50 hours a week. Interior tub with the rear floor fixed so it's flat across like the 1:1. Regular Panels (Unmodded) on top and th
  18. Well I had to start something to get my head a rollin' and I can't find a few older projects yet (too many boxes to look through). They'll turn up.... eventually. So this is what I'm doing. I've seen in a magazine sometime ago about some trucks done in either the 1980's or 1990's (or both) by a conversion company out west somewhere. They would take a Crew Cab and ad the Extended Cab area to make the cab bigger. I liked it so much I decided to replicate it. Besides the only trucks that look decent as Extended Cabs in the 350/3500 style is Dodge. Crew Cabs should have 4 doors in my book. E
  19. Simply amazing Raul! I was thinking along the same lines when the idea was mentioned of "coolant tubes" to give a bit of a "Art Deco" look. Really love where this one is going! I think the three peice trim idea to break up the fender areas is going to be a very well deserved and brillant idea. Keep up the outstanding work. I can't wait to see more.
  20. Movin' right along! You are going to need an entire shelf unit or display cabinet to show this beauty off when you are done! I like the conversion, stretching, and twin steering! Something you don't see that often in kit form. Great work!
  21. Very fitting colour for sure. I can see why you chose this combo! The wheels will look great with this. This is getting better with each update and pic. Keep up the great work! I like it!
  22. After seein' your other work. You'll do this car true justice. The work so far is stunning and I can't wait to see how this one unfolds as you come along with the build. The valve stems are a nice touch to the rims. Keep the updates comin'!
  23. Man I come back and start browsing around and here I see Peter's amazing work on a Viper! The paint colours and the decals make this one MEAN SNAKE that I wouldn't want to meet on the track! Great work, I can't wait to see more on this wonderful build. Excellent Execution and Stunning Workmanship! I love it!
  24. Why does the ole Trucker's song "Give Me 40 Acres" come to mind when I went through all 7 pages of histerical comments and totally AWESOME build shots of this Wrecker. I have to say Rom, You sure know how to knock the ball clear out of the county (and possibly the state for that matter) with your builds! The Chevelle first is absolutely stunning, the Nova turned out KILLER! and now this? When does the insanity end?? LmAo! Keep up the outstanding work my friend! Can't wait to see the next update on this build.
  25. Interesting for sure! I love the design elements you are adding to this car. I love seein' builds like this as it makes me feel like a kid again using my imagination on what the possibilities are going to be before seeing it actually done. Excellent workmanship and I can't wait to see more. Keep on building, I luv it!
