  5. Thanks for the feedback. The photos are only 350 x 263 pixels. That would seem to be a low enough resolution. Are you guys looking at the mobile version or on a computer?
  6. Voting is taking place for our first Online Model Car Contest. There is a lot of time involved with making these models and the builders deserve your kudos. Here is a link to the entries page. http://www.tedsmodelingmarketplace.com/model-car-contest-entries/ Voting ends April 30th.
  7. No, I'm not currently a reseller for Micro Nitro. They can be purchased directly from MicroNitro.net.
  8. The wire wheels are fantastic looking. You can't get any more realistic than real wire wheels. They require work and it's going to be slow going at first, but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. They are available in 1/25 and 1/16 scales from Micro Nitro (www.MicroNitro.net) With the help of Bob Spedding's experimentation and expert building technique, I made directions for both scales. The photo above is one of Bob's completed wheels. They're available in a PDF file which I attached here. If you have any questions regarding the instructions, email me at TedsModeling@gmail.com. Jim, at Micro Nitro, has a wheel assembly fixture available which positions the hub and rim for lacing, but the instructions are still necessary to understand the lacing procedure and sequence.

  9. Jeff - It all looks so awesome. Those throttle bodies are excellent and you mentioned they were scaled after the real thing - great research work. Is the engine modeled after a specific Sonny's engine? If so, how do you get your measurements from them? Is that very first photo a pic of the valve covers?
  10. Daryl - Great job on this. I'm a real fan of Garlits. I don't see the decals for SR 13 (SAD013) on your Fotki page. I also can't find it in your pricing sheets. Are they still available?
  11. I'd like to know how you pack something like this for travel/shipping. Have any photos of the process you can pass along?
  12. Great start, Chris. I like your attention to detail and your willingness to devote the time to make it right. I also like the scripture of John as your signature.
  13. Really clean - I like it. The Willys pickup is one of my favorite body styles. The early Anglia is another.
  14. Tyrone - Did you fabricate the floor/wheel tubbs/firewall piece or is that from the kit? Looks like another winner-winner-chicken dinner!
  15. I really appreciate the little details that make it look realistic I keep looking at those welding heat stains on the suspension linkage parts - lovely how they taper/blend to nothing. How did you machine the 'notches' in the ring between the blower pulley and its spacer? Love the Micro Nitro Pro Mag. Did you use an anodized paint on it?
