  1. Have you given any thought to giving some of the parts a go with Carbon Fiber decals? Scale auto has a nice article on working with those kinds of decals in either this current issue or the one before it. That is a neat little version of a coooool car. Dave
  2. Mark: Those are some nice looking armor pieces. I especially like the Tiger I in Euro cammoflage. Gives it a little different look from the normal sand tan and red/brown cammo that you usually associate with them. Very nicely done in 1/72. Dave
  3. I think that is going to be an interesting piece. Put the flathead in it with the vintage tow gear, and you'll be all set. Dave
  4. Thanks for the encouragment on my Deuce 3 window. I do have some Cycle fenders I picked up at last Aprils Buffcon. They may be just the ticket for the rear fenders, but I'm not sure about the fronts though. We'll see. Dave
  5. Duke: Again you have shown you are a master of the art of Armor building. I like your HEMTT and the Hedgehog Matilda. They are nice looking pieces and will look good on your shelves. Your are indeed the "Iron Duke" of the IPMS!!! Dave
  6. Duke: Those are all some pretty nice looking vehicles. I think you did an admirable job on them all. I gotta get moving on my Armor, because I need to work on a Tiger I for a build in another group I'm in. I have about a dozen irons in the fire right now, and I need to take some quality time to work on them. I haven't taken any modeling time except at club meetings and I don't work to my full potential because of general B.S. sessions at the meetings. Good work anyway on all that armor. Dave
  7. Dude, that is a fantastic looking Deuce 5 window. I'm working on AMT/Ertls old original 32 three window. I plan on having it as a combination of the Custom and Rod versions, because thats the way I like how it looks. I only wish I could get the original Hot Rod fenders that were in the original version. That would make mine perfect. Dave
  8. Yes sir, Mark, you are definitely the "Iron Duke". Those are some fine looking pieces there my man. Nice work on the Train also. Now thats what I call some Heavy iron!!! Dave
  9. :smiley20: Excellent job on that 55 ragtop. I have one in my stash, but I plan on doing a light amount of customizing on it. I may use different fender skirts, I got the custom grill from the AMT 55 nomad (fits perfectly) and maybe some spots on her and a connie kit on the rear end. We'll see later on. Dave Wahl
  10. Mike: That Nissan is turning out mighty nice. I may have to try me one 'o them, when I get some $$$ to purchase it. How hard is the PE to work with as far as the brake rotors and such? I've never done that kind of PE before, just some small interior pieces and I'm curious. Dave

  12. I agree with using a white colored pencil. Gently rubbing that on the raised letters makes them stand out big time. I've done that on dash gauges and they always turn out good. Dave Wahl
  13. Mike: That is a nice looking little tuner you got there. I like both versions shown, but your stock looking one looks better. Very nice job.
  14. Guys: I was stateside in the early 70s in Security Police, and I do remember the trucks and blazers being more Dodges than Chevies. They switched as the companies had deals with the DoD. I'm sure those would be alright for use in a display with any of the mentioned planes, even some Fighter types. Have fun.
  15. Mark: That is a nice looking family of Shermans you got there. Looks like at least an armored company. You need to set up a command track and some that will be platoon leaders vehicles. You are truly "The Iron Duke"
  16. Duke: I just looked over all the pix of your projects and they are fantastic. I like your German recon set. I can't wait till they get dullcoated for the more realistic look to them all. I'm not as keen on ships, but I even like what you are doing there. I am getting ready to build a Tiger I for a group build in another group I'm in. Should be lots 'o fun. I will try to get pix when I'm finished.
  17. I'd like to see a 1/72-76 scale model of the V-100 M-706 commando Military police/ Air Force Security Police armored car. Could be nice for me and the "Iron Duke" something interesting to try.
  18. I still say you are the "Iron Duke" even though the vehicles are plastic. Those are indeed some nice looking armor pieces. Very well done indeed. I hope to be modeling again soon, as I only need a good light source on the modeling table to get things going. Made some progress last Saturday night, although not in Armor. I got some more work done on some Car kits I'm plugging along on. Maybe I'll be able to ge hold of a decent Digital camera, so I can start learning how to post pix here. We'll see.
  19. Man, those are some real "Ratty" looking trucks. Nice looking projects, all of them. Can't wait for the finale. Dave
  20. That is a fine looking Car. Either way looks good, but I think I like the stock version better. Good job.
  21. Matt: That is a nice looking 29. I'm guessing that, by the opened doors, that it is the Revell kit. Love the color and the way you hopped up the 4 popper. Love them wide whites. All in all, a well executed kit.
  22. Matt: That is a nice looking 48 Ragtop. I always liked Fat fenders and Wide whites. That really sets the car apart from the rest. See you at the Hot Rod cafe for a burger and an A&W Root Beer.
  23. How in the world did you come up with the green lightbars? I have been looking around for different colored lights, but haven't been very successful. Nice job on the modern style truck. I need to try one of those some day.
  24. Well, Brian, to answer the first question, I used to model to get away from the troubles of reality-work, money, bills etc., Now its just a matter to get up there and try to build something. Mostly its during Club meetings that I get most building done, where I'm not distracted by life in general. Now the WHAT. 1/24-25 scale cars and trucks, mostly Hot Rods and Customs, with a few stock models thrown in for good measure. 1/72 scale WWII Aircraft. Mostly Fighters with a couple of early jets and a single WWI Fighter thrown in. Also have a couple 1/48 planes in the mix. These were given to me as they didn't know what scale I built. 1/72 scale WWII armor, mostly American, British and German Armor and Halftracks, and Softskins. Also have a few 1/35 scale Armor that was given to me or I won as Doorprizes at contests. I also have Three ships to make. 1. PT109 simply because I like those boats. 2. Revell USS Ward going to be converted to resemble my late Father-in-laws ship from WWII. He was on the old Flush Deck Destroyers before and during the war. I have some of his pictures from the time period and plan on using them in building the ship. 3. An old Lindberg box scale model of the German pocket Battleship Scharhorst. I have been building since I was around 8 or 9, so I have seen my share of things come and go.
