  1. Over 400 pictures from the first two hours of the 2019 Detroit Cobo Autorama, generally considered one of the two most important indoor car shows in the US each year. Includes all the "Great 8" Ridler Award finalists.... Great modeling ideas abound.... Check it out here.... Best Regards....TIM
  2. Afternoon gang. I plan on attending the Detroit show this weekend and would like to bring my completed M1008 to show off / get constructive criticism. Problem is,is that I am a car show virgin. I haven't the foggiest idea what to do. Do I just show up with the build? Or do I register for a spot on a table. Not trying to be a noob, just need some friendly direction from the group. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  3. heres the start.....bought it off of ebay and plan on rebuilding and repainting it going to at some custom touches to it and possibly hook up an amt flatbed or lowboy hauling junk cars and car parts...enjoy
  4. Scott "Rock Action" Asheton , drummer for Ann Arbor's own Psychedelic Stooges , passed away at age 64 on 15th March : http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/17/showbiz/music/obit-stooges-scott-asheton-dies/ Still kicking myself for missing out on their 2007 L.A. tour . That was the last show of theirs in the Los Angeles area with both of the Asheton brothers ( Ronnie Asheton , Scott's older brother , was the Stooges' original guitarist ; he passed away in 2009 ) . I've long dreaded the days when all of my favourite artists would pass on ; today I'm realising my fears . From Andy Warhol in 1987 , to Scott Asheton , and eveyone in between , the days have come . Rest In Peace , Scottie ! Photo of the "Dum Dum Boys" in action at Rodney "Mayor of the Sunset Strip" Bingenheimer's English Disco , c.1974.
  5. The CMT White Freightliner photo etch set sent me speeding down this path. I wanted to build something Detroit powered for a change, and what better combination that a Sliver 92 and a WFL cabover. The radiator and grille from CMT. The Stabilaire suspension from Italeri was narrowed about 2 mm to fit the 1/25th frame. Out board exhaust and dual air cleaners were added. The interior was converted to a platform style, and 150 gallon tanks were fashioned. Some srap box exhaust give a preview in the mock up photos. The headlights were lowered, the front axle was moved forward on the springs about 3 mm, the wheel arch reshaped, a front crossmember/radiator support was made, and a corrected visor and mounting bracket were added. Thank you for taking the time to look, Mark.
