Nice job! I built that same kit a couple of years ago. What fun putting on all of that lozenge decal camo on the fuselage and under the wings!

1969 Ford Fairlane 500 2-door hardtop (not fastback). Black with turquoise interior, Magnum 500 wheels, just enough polished stainless trim to accent the black body. Had a 302/C4 when I got it, but ...

www.scalehobbyist.com has a good selection of kits, materials and supplies, and the prices seem pretty reasonable compared to other sites. I've done quite a bit of business with them and have never b ...

I realized that whether the subject was cabinetry or woodworking, cars or engines, or yes, model kits...I would rather build it than buy it.

I usually would allow at least 24 hours between the different colors. Sometimes it would be a matter of days just between the opportunities I would have to paint. Lacquer paints dry pretty quick co ...

I do a 3-stage Tamiya paint on my Wood Bros. cars. Actually found it on the old site some time back. First coat is TS-21 gold, followed by TS-74 clear red, then finished with TS-65 clear pearl. It' ...

It looks to me like the later grille has a sharper "V" shape when viewed from above, and that the center of the "V" of the nose extends out farther than the '73, which has a shallo ...

This is a pretty crappy pic of the actual car, circa 1978, but it's the only one I've ever found of it. Ignore the fact that it has mags on the rear and stock wheel covers on the front. Let's just c ...

The body I'm using isn't anything to get excited about. What I have is actually from Revell's Starsky & Hutch kit. It's pretty darn similar to the '73, but it's definitely going to require some ...

Thanks for the input, guys. I had seen the '73 body on SMH, but I only need the nose. I have a formal-roof body to model a Gran Torino I used to have, but need a correct nose to do it right.

I'm not sure if I dreamed it, or if I've just totally lost it, but I could swear I had seen a resin nose for a '73 Gran Torino somewhere not that long ago. I've been searching all over the 'net and h ...

Should I consider myself lucky? I just ordered from them last month (July) and received the order in a matter of days. I've only sprayed one color so far, and found it pretty decent. Sprays nice an ...

I built this one a few years ago but it's still one of my favorites, perhaps because it's not one that you see very often. Quite a few of the decals I made myself, and the red and blue stripes were p ...
