GREAT. Thanks for having me. Big Smile

 

 

Here are a couple shots of my progress on the 65. I'm starting with the engine. Most of it is done , just needs more paint detail work.  Thanks for looking, Dave.

I'd like in too.  I have a Dodge Monaco and a Charger I'd like to add, if there's still time to join this one.

I just saw his thread. I WANT IN !!! Since I'm nearly completed with the Dodge Monaco, I want to enter into the build with my next car. A1965 Chevrolet Biscane wagon. I don't have the resin body in hand yet, Modelhaus say's 4 to 6 weeks, it's been 1 so far. I DO HAVE the donor kit in hand, so I can start with that. MAY I COME TO THE PARTY ? PLEASE.

Apparently, Testors has discontinued the "Primer Grey" color in their "Custom lacquer system" line - the Blazer is on hold until I finda  suitable replacement.   First they killed the fabric red and fabric black, now primer grey - how the heck am I supposed to finish a model?!

Once again, my legions of adoring fan have spoken - the Mustang Mach III.

In the frozen land of Nador, they were forced to eat Robin’s minstrels. And there was much rejoicing.

Quick quiz, guys.  Rick Hunter's unmarked Plymouth (ex-Gotham/Joker), Mustang Mach III phantom State Patrol, or '57 Fairlane County Sheriff 'Moonshine Chaser'? {I will keep the ballots in a mayonnaise jar on Funk & Wagnall's front porch.  LOL}

Well, I got started on my 95 Chevy Blazer.  It's a gift for a friend of mine who was a security chief for the large property developer, he was with the residential communities division.  Here's a few pics.....

the seats and console (interior is primer grey)

the interior floor pan and side walls

 the chassis under construction, on the sprue- the flash was quite noticeable on some sprues

the chrome wheels, after dull coating

the incomplete V6 Vortec engine - I should of used Humbrol metal cote flat aluminum on the tranny

TV or movie squad cars allowed?

I don't see why not, now that you ask.  That'll give me a chance to use some of my OCP (Robocop) decals from JBOT!  JBOT also has decals for the following TV shows:

  • EMERGENCY!
  • 240-Robert 
  • Dukes of Hazzard (4 different cruisers)

All I can think of is the chase scene from 'Bullitt', done w/ 'smart' cars!  LOL  Nice work, PW.  I'm in on this GB, pyrman.  Just not sure what to build?  

On the bench? - Dust!
