Scale I Build

  1. I was looking at the themes for NNL East next year and the main theme is “Known Survivors - original old customs from our youth”. I don’t remember any customs from my youth ??. Well, maybe KITT from Knight Rider, if that even counts... I was wondering what imagery that prompt brought to anyone else’s mind...anyone building something cool for this theme for next year’s show? I’d love to build something for this, but I definitely need some help with inspiration...
  2. ">http:// The Rodder's Journal published ALL of Dan Post's Restyling guides including the famed and illustrious "Blue Book" and very early (1944) mimeographs. Just got my copies today, and man, talk about being inspired by these archaeological finds! Best thing for us model builders are the many hand drawn illustrated "how-to's", plus tons of pics of how it really was, many pre-Hot Rod magazine! This reference material is well worth reading through the sometimes archaic 40's era prose, but tips on channeling, chopping, sectioning, and slamming (my term, not Dan's) 40's and early 50's iron will surely inspire you to get something old on your bench. If your a custom fan, I'm sure you've heard about this release. Believe the hype and get a copy. My build is on hold until I burrow though these manuals, then its off to find some early post-war kits!
  3. hi all, I have several kits in line to build, and have started a revell w900. last night I gave a go at detailing the dashboard, looks ok to me [and once installed will never see the light of day again, but...], here is where I'm at with it would like to see more pic's of dashes of several different trucks for future reference, and any tips you could provide for painting these pesky little guys would be appreciated.
