  1. 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
  2. That looks GREAT Ed. If that's a 2LT driving that car then he must be tote'n a General around.
  3. 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.
  4. Man...in the second pic...it looks like an airbrushed mural paint job...That looks waaaay KOOL Joe.
  5. Dannnnng.....That looks GREAT. Are you going to clear it?
  6. 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!!
  7. 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.
  8. 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....
  9. 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!!
  10. 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.....
  11. Thanks for the kind words Ed, Bob, Mike. It is really appreciated.....
  12. 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...
  13. 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....
  14. That's looking really good Joe. Good fab work going on here...
  15. That's Kool it placed on the Podium....it's well deserved.
  16. 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.
  17. Thanks Joe... The chassis is finished. I've also started on the Decals on the body. Hopefully I will get that finished this weekend or sooner. Here are a few pics of the finished chassis.... Thanks for looking in folks...
  18. LOL...I hear you on that. You made them work with this build real well....
  19. That looks very KOOL Bob. You did a great job on the weathering and Hand lettering..it really fits the paint scheme. That ball and chain is really kool...
  20. Well Joe...I think this body will give you more.... "body sanding/putty work" skills. It's going to look KOOL when you're finished with it...that's for sure.
  21. Well...here's an update sooner than I thought I could get done. This is not finished yet but you can see the paint scheme that was applied. The racing harness and the dash still need to be added to the interior to finish that area. Here are a few pics of the body paint. Numbers, sponsors, nerf bars and trunk lid still have to be added. Thanks for looking in....
  22. Parts by Parks have good Turned Aluminum parts. I've used the air cleaners quite a bit. Jack at Model Roundup is great to work with. I get the PPP tires and wheels from him.
  23. Man Joe...this is really looking good. One question though...where's the beer in the cooler?? If we're watching a "B" Ball game on the screen...we need a DOG and A beer...ya know??? LOL
  24. The chassis is a roller now and in these mock up pics...the cage isn't in. I'm still adjusting the front body height..and I think I like it where it's at now. All body work is finished and it's ready for color. I still have to run the fuel line from tank to carb. That will be done when when I mount the engine in permanently. That should be today... Here's a few pics to see the stance... Thanks for looking in folks......
  25. Hey Joe...thanks for the compliment bubba!!! Man...I don't mind the speed that 10 has...but it's set up in the same fashion as my wife's' i phone. All the tiles and the same B.S on the desk top. Sooo...I reset my desk top with my own pic and set all the the icons that I want to go to there also. It's the same way I had it when I had XP Pro. Man...Why do they keep mess'in with a good thing. Of course...WE know the answer to that question....MONEY. Oh well...I guess if a person wants to play in this ball park...they have to abide by the park rules. I digress now...LOL
