First of all,A HUGE thanks to Littlemoe for posting these for me.Everyone stand up and give Moe a big round of applause!!!Give it up!!!Second,yes,those are torquethrusts on the Daytona.I built the Daytona as a "mule" before I built the mighty Superbird.Extended hood,etc.The Superbird used 10 of the kit pieces and the rest was found,bought,or made.The 'Vette and Torino are my favorites.The Torino is a "one of none" Shelby Torino.If you look real close,you can see all of the Shelby stuff.

Again,thank you all,and...LITTLEMOE!!!!As far as the cars go.I try to be as accurate as possible.If it wouldn't work on a real car,I don't put it on my kit cars.The Superbird was the most difficult.Everything was modified.The interior has 4 Corvette bucket seats,a Ferrari dash,Porsche console,poseable steering,Ferrari wheels and brakes,independant rear suspension made from a PT Cruiser,Porsche,Dana 60,Viper,and Ferrari parts.The chassis is from a 69 Super Beewith the front subframe from a 69 Charger,the interior bucket is a combination of 69 Super Bee and 70 Roadrunner,the inner fenders are from a 64 Dodge,electric fans,shortened and narrowed gas tank with wrap-around exhaust (with heat shields),etc,etc,etc.I really am grateful that my fellow modelers take interest in them.Thanks.

I try hard to be honost to the car I'm building.I know that may not make a lot of sense,but I can't just build anything.I have to have the "right" feeling about the car.That's why I can't enter a lot of the theme classes at the shows.If my heart isn't in it,it won't get built.You guys who I talk to,and share modelling with really motivates me to build.Thanks all.

Hey, all of these models are great. I'm a Mopar man but I can't help but be drawn into the Torino and the color on the Vette. I like them all. I especially like all of the working components on all of the models. Great job!SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Thanks 1320,I appreciate your words,and your time for checking them out.3 of them were Mopars.I'm a Mopar guy myself.But,every once in a while my wife pushes me to step outside the box.I do draw the line at small block cars.I won't build one.I like to see an engine fill up the engine compartment.HEMI !!!!!!Thanks again.

hey, vinnie...those wheels on the corvette...are those custom made or from a kit?

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

Thanks Hawg.I appreciate your compliments.It took a while to get them right.For the 4 tires,it took 8 to make them,and same for the wheels.Like I said,if you need anything,let me know.As far as my cars go,I have no secrets.I'll share all the stuff I know.

Send him the glue. That's something he'll really like. And some putty ,too.
