  1. Very good! What did you use for the snow?
  2. I've seen it. A really good look at 60s GP racing. The years leading up to 1980 are my favorite for F1 racing but man they were so deadly.
  3. Stunning! Love the color. Either the BMF work is perfect or you have the steadiest hand anywhere.
  4. Great job! I need to send you my BRE Datsun 510 to do the two tone paint on it.
  5. Nice job. It looks fast just sitting there.
  6. Differences of opinion are just that, opinions, and like hind parts, everyone's got one and some stink. I like the way you did it. The BMF would be too shiny. The green looks fine to me.
  7. Beautiful work. I especially like the 11. A local friend was going to do a run of those in 1:1 and wanted to call them The Eastlake 11. East Lake is an area here in Chattanooga, TN. He built one that I know of. It was beautiful, but green of course. I like the yellow!
  8. It may be your first shot at scratch building but I think you've figured it out. I'm impressed.
  9. Execllent! Love that color.
  10. Nice! Purple, my wifes' favorite.
  11. I don;t blame you, I'd be proud too. Beautiful build.
  12. I immediately said a long Oooooooooooooooooo. Stunningly beautiful. I love the clean simple lines.
  13. I actually attended the 1963 Oakland roadster Show. I was in the US Navy and attending Radar School on Treasure Island, between San Fran and Oakland during that time. Bought a sweatshirt from Ed Roth with "Mother's Worry" on the front. He autographed it. I had a bunch of pictures but 50 years later, they're in a land fill somewhere with the sweatshirt. Can't attest to the accuracy of the diorama but it does seem familiar. I especially remember the red Merc. I think Roth's booth was on the left but then, it could just be my imagination.
  14. Great work! They look like winners to me.
  15. Reminds me of a '40 that was for sale when I was 16. They only wanted $60 and all it needed was some wiring work. My Dad vetoed the idea. I didn't have any source of income so this would have been my Dad's burden, but man I wanted it so bad.
  16. Great idea, he'll love it! GO VOLS!!!!!
  17. Excellent replica! I wish SpeedTV still had Thursday Night Thunder where midgets and monsters like your replica tore it up on dirt tracks.
  18. I like everything about it! The design concept is really excellent.
  19. Yes, it does. Thanks a lot!
  20. What colors of metalizer are you using? Different tones under different color coat?
  21. You can make a boot lid. Cobra's aren't a complicated shape.
