I was happy to have been able to participate in the first ever "Desert Scale Classic" virtual model show this spring.

The guys in Arizona chose to let the show go on virtually rather than cancel or postpone as most other shows have done this year due to COVID-19.

I was very fortunate to have the judges recognize my '68 Olds 442 W-30 for a first place award in the factory stock category, as well as a "Master Award" for best interior.

My '65 Plymouth fury was also awarded 2nd place in the Street Machine category.

 

I was very humbled and very happy!

I just received this beautiful chopped 32 3w body from Ed Fluck at Drag City Casting. This thing is beyond quality. The chop is perfect, the resin is perfect and service was beyond anything I have encountered! I have it placed on my current build frame to show how it could look. It includes a separate windshield surround to make painting and installing glass easier.

I can't seem tostart a new post, so I'm gonna see if I can tag onto your appropriate one here.

 

Over the past month I have managed to get my hands on a 1/12 Italiari Alfa Romeo8C 2300 Monza.  It has about a billion parts, and looks like a fun build if I ever get to it. 

 

I did also manage to get a good buy on a 1/12 diecast Fujimi F40 Blackstar.  The gloss black paint, like so many of the expensive and decent diecast cars from the 1990s and 2000s, was full of flaws and blistering.  So, I had it repainted in a semi-flat black for a very mean stealthy look.  I am hoping it will be pretty outrageopus when I'm done...unless someone with more time buys it from me and does it first. 

 

I did also purchase a few more diecasts that need some minor repairs, which I hope to accomplish in the coming months:  1/12 Danbury 1957 Chevrolet Convertible in torquoise(probably not the correct color name), a Danbury 1/12 1957 Corvette in black (one with no paint flaws...."knock on wood"), and a boatload (not really) of detail parts for 1/12 and 1/18 cars. 

 

I'll just add them to the rest of the WIPS.

HOORAY! Bagged another long wanted kit! The surfboard, skateboard, the figure and the kool Stingray bike are long wanted extras. Plus the choice of pick up or woody is a big plus on my scoreboard!

  

Yes it was cheap because it was used. Some parts missing, broken etc.

The other day I went to the Ben Franklin aka B&F store and bought a Revell Snap together New Beetle model. 

 

Took me a few minutes to put it all together.  The right side clear headlight broke in half but the rest of the car is perfect.

Supposedly moving house, yes! There are 10 buyers/houses in the chain and we now have 'lockdown' so no one allowed out! No groups more than 2 people but it's got to be that way to stop Covid19. All non essential shops closed only supermarkets and pharmacies allowed to be open! Most companies closed as no one to be less than 6 ft or 2 metres away. So factories, racing teams, etc closed, everyone to stay at home. We went out this morning to buy food for the next two days as we have fresh vegetables and fruit.

My biggest mistake was that I packed away all of my made models, kits and hardware as soon as our offer was accepted on the bungalow (downsizing).

It's so boring, sitting waiting to move but because of the virus nearly all businesses are closed, so no movers, estate agents etc!

We are over 70 so all of us over that age are expected to stay indoors for upwards of 4 months!

Thank god for decent deals on ebay, keeping me sane. But ebay is not what it used to be when sellers want £50 - £150 for so called 'RARE' kits!

I sold 2 pairs of mountain bike shorts and our post office is closed due to illness, so had to find another one open. But we've had no deliveries today at all from our local sorting office (separate from the walk in Post Office counter).

Anyway stay safe and avoid Covid 19. Let's just heed the warnings on TV from the people that know and use common sense.
