    Hey Dakota, that truck looks awesome!!!! Color looks good on it!!!
    Ol' Skool, I'm have a 37 Ford truck hood narrowed to fit the body as well as the 37 grille shell that I need to cut down and narrow to fit. Then I'll put in some tubing for the grille and call it good.

    I picked up the new revell 1968 mustang gt....it is the plastic version of the bullit diecast they did a few years ago...what a cool kit!

    Nice decal sheet for a tasca cobra jet..and some awesome cragars and steel wheels with slicks.

    I'd love to pay one of you guys to do my truck for me. I just gotta justify the expense to the wifey.

    I'm happy too see that some people get things done, I have been buried in work lately at the same time as the spring is coming fast = real cars/motorcylce needs more attention due to summer cruises :))

    My workbench is just collecting dust for the moment but I'll do my best to keep working on at least one model.....

    DrKerry: wild ( maybe can add crazy :), really dig it!

    Omega: Beutiful as always! To me it seems like you was born with a brush in your hand *s*

    Dakota: Really nice pick up!!! I am about to check out an 1/1 1954 F-250 with the "awesome" 272 Y-block and 4-shift manual tranny - yummy ;-)

    Take care folks, ca ya soon!

    Ohhh I forgot: Omega, thanks for the tip - that Mustang sounds like really good deal! Can't wait to lay my hands on the Tasca-version :)

    Thanks Johnny :)

    Check out this folder..I uploaded some details on the mustang. The real downside to the kit is the screw down pegs that are on the kit (since it was a diecast before plastic) and the wheels use axles. but it comes with 2 slicks and 4 street tires. Wheels will also fit the tires and slicks from the revell 68 firebird 400.

  13. Omega,

    Correct me if I'm worong, but the Tasca Mustang looks like it has all the parts for the Bullitt Mustang... for about $3-5 less?

    I have both kits. I have not eyed them both to compare enough, but I would guess yes. The bullit decal sheet is skimpy!

    You don't get the bullitt grill

    You're better off with the gt kit I listed above.

    You get a decal sheet that could just about do 2 cars, you get a rear seat delete, roll cage, a cobra jet hood with shaker scoop, stock gt hood. slicks, 4 normal tires, stock rally wheels (4) 2 cragar wheels, 4 torq thrust wheels, 2 steel wheels for the rear... optional headers..

    Same goes for the 69 nova kit. You get much more bang for your buck by getting the 2 n1 version instead of the 69 yenko. You dont geta big block chevy but you do get a aweosome decal sheet, slicks, drag wheels, rally wheels..and a bunch of engine parts.

    Here is my shoebox that is one I sorta copied from Hop Up Special #1. Then today I dug out an old project that I need to finish soon. It will get a small block chev with 6 carbs. Thinking about painting the underside of the fenders white along with the running boards. Already had the roof insert white.

  16. Thanks for the info Omega- I have a couple of the Nova kits already (to do a model of my '70:D).

    Good looking models, guys! The Chrysler wagon is one like a friend had in the 60s. Great looking pickup....nice rusty bodies, Omega. I think this week I will throw in my dirty Ford roundy-rounder.

    Hey Kerry, no I did not. I went out to Cedar Rapids on saturday and decided to skip the NNL and skip the swap on sunday. I wish I would have went to both now. :( Oh well I saved some money by not goin.

    HiI

    My name is Slim Louis, I was invited here by Luke, told me you had a model car thread going, and would I like to share some pictures of my builds here. Sure! I am a transplanted Milwaukeen living in the Memphis area, playing blues music for a living, full time, on Beale St. And all over America from time to time. Don't have any money for a real car, I'm a musiciam, remeber? But I am married, so I am not homeless! lol Seriously, I love short track racing, and I build models of vintage race cars. I am an old guy, and I like old stuff! lol So if you like, I would like to show you one of my builds! ( I have hundreds!) Where to start? Hmmmm
    56 Chevy sedan, small block, fictional build, late sixties era.

    Thanks for the welcome! I am still learning my way around here, computer-wise, this sites a little different then I'm used to. Cannot find the start of this thread without searching my own name. Let's see if this post bumps it back to page one. While I'm at it, I build race cars with out fenders, too!

    Her's a cut down 32 Vickie "Skeeter" on my first scratch built frame! Ford Powered!
