That is rad dude....
Picked up some old builds from a friends mom, a few of them I built way back when.
I have one of these to restore if I can get it apart.
Getting more done on the 49.
I really like that one. Digging the color and the big 'n little's with stock hub caps.
A couple oldies
I've posted pictures of the model before, but the light today was good and I wanted to try out a piece of orange card for a photo background. I'm happy with the result...
And complete a woody Gilmore you did Mike....sorry I was not able to comment earlier ...seems that some.other plans were made for me viva ambulance transport and hospital stay, congestive heart failure, but they say I may go home today...so to you mike on your latest Gilmore build I'm proud to be able to bow my head and with a tear in my eye say...bravo Mike....bravo...
And to all you....you are turning out some very cool stuff...I hope to back building again soon
Thanks Terry (aka Rudestude)

^^ Should go without saying...get well soon and stay strong. We need you back here.
I've read from other modelers, a great way to "unglue" parts is to place then in the kitchen freezer, they might easily snap apart later with a bit of gentle prying.
!!!My goodness! Terry, great that you're on your way home, I hope to not ever realize the fear that you may have suffered. What a scare! Follow please the advice and get well soon.
Also, many thanks for the following support you offered, a great thing.
Hello guys, another brass FED here.
This one is all about finishing the project that I abandoned last November.
Chassis is finished, meantime though, a 426 motor was added, the motor dump was lessened to 4°, and above all the decision to make this car a full body build.
So, scale 175" brass chassis, with brass sheet full body in progress....
How about a 1961 Jaguar.
^^^^ What did you clear coat with?
I didn't, I used multiple coats of Tamiya Bright Red over a white Tamiya Primier and then I compounded and polished it.
Looks really nice! I built a XKE car as a kid, remember it being tedious and dificult....it whooped me good! Your model looks good.
AMT project "Fiddy Ferd "...
Online contest for Shoebox Fords.
Fartbook page FFAFF.
Top modified into a Chopped Carson.
Rear fenders treatment with R&M '54 Merc lenses.
Rounded hood and trunk corners.
I'm working on an AMT/Lindberg '34 Ford pickup wheelstander as if it had been built in the early '60s. The yellow lines indicate a faux pickup bed for the battery, fuel tank, etc.
Finished rebuilding this one.
Just finished this one.
Finished this 49 Ford tonight with Y block power.
Brass FED, 1:16, prepped for paint.
@mchook, doing that model must have been a lot of fun, it sure looks convincing. Amazing work, very well done. For sure one of those times when you ask yourself, "how does he do it"? Well, talent would be the first answer.
I’m making good progress on the Bob McGee tribute roadster...

Thanks for the great comment. I wish I had YOUR talent though, your builds are simply amazing!
I got another box of old goodies. Some crazy builds & I think I know why, it fell out of the boat.
Aww, you're killing me with these photos but, yeah, there's some bizarre stuff there.
Those are some really creative builds, that’s an interesting collection. The coolest one is the car carrier that duplicates Norman Holtkamp’s custom truck based on a ‘59 El Camino. Holtkamp sourced the El Camino cab from the Van Nuys assembly plant.
