  1. My completed models found least embarrassing to moi. (which is my sole criteria for "crown jewel" designation.)
  2. Steve, Absolutely loving what you're doing here. The work is outstanding, and I love the concept. As I looked at the profile of what you have so far, I wondered what it might look like with the 'B' pillar moved a few inches forward and canted slightly more forward, so opened up P-Shop and did a little playing around. (Just added a second image toying with the B-pillar widened with some 55-56 BelAir-inspired vents. Just food for thought/consideration. Whatever direction you go, I know the finished result will be outstanding. Enjoying the ride...
  3. This build post is the smile of the day for me. Inspirational in more ways than you probably intended. Keep up the great work, both of you.
  4. Having seen this car in person at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, I can tell you that you've absolutely nailed it! Nice execution and attention to detail. Well done!
  5. Gorgeous! That paint looks deep enough to dive into.
  6. Gorgeous! Nice attention to detail. Super clean build.
  7. Thanks. Loving your much more contemporary take on this kit. I wish Revell had considered offering stock versions of these kits.
  8. This is a build from about 15 years ago. Engine, wheels and tires from Revell '40 Ford Convert, MCG photo-etch grill and gauges. aluminum tubing exhaust routed through the frame. Other details include plumbed brake lines, fuel lines, and various hoses. Doors cut open and hinged.
  9. This one brought a smile to my face. I worked for a Milwaukee- area Pontiac dealer back in the -late '70s, that had a tow truck very similar to this one. I can also remember bringing in a few TA's on the "hook." Nice build. Love the attention to detail on the weathering of the TA as well. Story-telling with models—Love it!!
  10. Love the shackles and "slapper" bars. I recall a number of cars like this while in high school—mid-70s. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
  11. Indeed it does! Not sure if it's just the lighting, but it also appears that the clear coat has yellowed just a bit over the years which has made the chrome components look even for realistic. Love the color as well.
  12. Looks great! Reminds me of certain Hot Wheels car from my youth.
  13. I've used Crafter's Pick with great results. Cleans up with water. Available at Michael's for under $7 for a bottle that will last a long while.
  14. Beautiful work! Extra points for using the words "anachronistic" and "neurasthenics" in a post on a model car builders forum. Full disclosure: I had to break out the Websters Dictionary for that second one... Well played, sir, Well played.
  15. Beautiful!! Love the color combination, and the attention to detail.
