  1. Thanks for the compliments Gil and Mark...... I've got this puppy finished. I didn't put plates on because I couldn't see them. I guess this will have to stay on ALL the back streets...away from the coppers!! :smiley16: .... :lol: Here's the "BAD TO THE BONE" Movie car.... Thanks for looking in on this "mini" wip folks...It was a kick to build....
  2. Thank you Clare...That color just jumps out at ya don't it? I'll bet it had everybody looking at you guys when roll'in down the road eh? Definitely can not miss that color....
  3. Here's an update...The finished interior is mocked up in place for a look. The engine bay was shot black this morning and seems to work with the firewall colors. As soon as the hood and engine bay completely dry...the decals will be added and maybe clear shot on the body. Here's a look at the body and interior mock up..... As always....thanks for look'in in folks....
  4. Thank you ED and Mark. Just got the plug wires finished. Now...Got to get to the body and finish that. The windshield frame has this padding type stuff that I have to add. I did strip all the chrome and used ALSA chrome and it sure stands up a lot longer than Alclad. It's spendy....but works pretty darn good. I'll tape off the frame and paint the padding on. That will be a good test for the chrome.
  5. Well...it's been quite sometime since I've built a street car. So...while watching the movie "PLAY IT TO THE BONE" staring...Antonio Banderas, Woody Harrelson, Lolita Davidovich as the three MAIN characters in the movie. The car in the movie belonged to Lolita and she drove the two guys to Vegas for an undercard fight( washed up pro-boxers). This car got my attention as the long shots really made that car look and sound good. Sooo...I thought it would be a kick to build this movie car. I started this build a few months back using the Revell 72 Hurst Olds as the basses for the build. The interior is complete along with the chassis. Here are a few pics of that progress..... THE 1/1 car for ref... The finished interior... The Chassis... Grill and wheels are finished also... Started the plumbing and wiring of the engine.... Forgot to add the body shots....Got the Green laid down and I want to tape off and do the black under hood and engine bay..that should be done soon...Hopefully... LOL Thanks for looking in folks.
  6. Hey Ray....No 66 convertable kit. But...monogram makes a 64 that you can make into a 66. Kit # 2456. It's the Indy Pacecar. You can get one for $13.00 at Star models...Steve is a great guy to work with. Make sure you call him to make sure he still has the kit in stock. Here's the link( just click on it).....Scroll down to the Fords and you see the 64 Mustang pace car. http://www.resinrealm.net/Star/Styrene/Mon.html You can upgrade the 64 into the 66 by using the 66 Mustang Photo etch kit from Model car Garage. I bought this kit and it worked out good for my 66 stang. Here's the link for that... http://modelcargarage.com/store/pc/viewCategories.asp?pageStyle=p&ProdSort=0&page=2&idCategory=21 This should get your 66 Stang for you....Hope this was helpful...
  7. Man...There are some outstanding builds at this show.
  8. Oh yea...I see why you like that color. It looks awesome on the computer...I'll bet it's FLAT GREAT in person. Is that a factory color or custom blend?? Man...That will look cool on the bug...
  9. Good job on an old kit. This car looks ready to kick some serious ASPHALT!
  10. If it's a 2LT, he's lost. Great model, Ed. :lol: That's a perfect statement for one of those butter bars.....in the 7 yrs I was in the ARMY...I think I had dealings with maybe 1-2, 2nd louies that had their head on straight. All the rest didn't know Shine-ola...Got into a few disagreements with about 99% of them. Of course...me being the NCO...I had to give in..for that moment..that is...LOL
  11. That looks GREAT Ed. If that's a 2LT driving that car then he must be tote'n a General around.
  12. Great job on this very cool car. Your attention to detail is spot on Andrew. If this don't get a Podium finish at the NATS...then there's something wrong. Very good build.
  13. Man...in the second pic...it looks like an airbrushed mural paint job...That looks waaaay KOOL Joe.
  14. Dannnnng.....That looks GREAT. Are you going to clear it?
  15. This is really looking WAAAAY KOOL Joe. The stance is killer. All the smoothing you did on the body sure turned out great. If you didn't mention it before...what color did you have in mind for the body? This is very good and what is called a "BUILD"....for sure. All the fab work that you're doing is top notch bud!!
  16. Thanks Joe.....next up is....an I.S.M.A. Super Modified..... a 29 Track nose/boat tail roadster......the 1966 Lloyd Ruby AAR Eagle Indy car.......a F5000 Lola..the Unser car.....The list goes on. The 29 roadster is really hitting me hard...along with the Super. But...as I set here and think about it....I still have a family Race car to build. That's a 34 ford sedan that my uncle drove in 53-54 season at Shasta Speedway, Redding Ca. What ever build I do...I'll post a wip on it. Thank you for the interest.
  17. You two are getting my juices flowing to do one of these. Infact....I have two of the 64s but didn't have that Super Shaker kit. Soooo...thank you bill...I went out and got one. LOL Now...I have to build it. Some day of course.... Hey Ed...your 64 really looks clean and ready to hit the Cruise line....
  18. You went to Kansas huh. What part? I lived in Junction City/Manhattan for about 2yrs. Loved it there. Man Joe.....your sanding skills are GREAT. Those "NO SEAM" areas are as smooth as a baby's behind! This is really going to look good when you get to the primer stage. You're doing a lot of good work here bud!!
  19. ROTFLMBO....MAN.....THAT WAS FUNNY!!! I know what you mean Joe. I'm pretty much in that same vein. I don't try to put any kind of a deadline on myself when it comes to building in scale. That also pertains to any commissioned builds that I do. Can't RUSH the work.....
  20. Thanks for the kind words Ed, Bob, Mike. It is really appreciated.....
  21. Thank you Bill....it was a good build for me. I really enjoyed building a car that brought back some great memories for me from the 60s and 70s. Just watching the Vintage Modified series up here is just flat too Kool. My old neighbor runs a 35 Dodge 5 window coupe in that series. I want to build a replica of his car soon. It's on the build list for sure...
  22. Thanks Joe for the GREAT compliment....This car is finished. Here are some final pics of the 31 Dirt Car. Thanks to ALL who have stop in and commented and gave support to this build....
  23. That's looking really good Joe. Good fab work going on here...
  24. That's Kool it placed on the Podium....it's well deserved.
  25. That came out really good Bill. It sure hits the mark of the cars that cruised on Friday nights when I was in high school. Man...the chicks would be "ALL OVER" you and that car at the Pine street parking lot. :D Great job.
