Beautiful work gentlemen!

I see a brick street or alley in the photo of the shed...is this a commercial product or hand made?

If Jim doesn't mind I'll RSVP.

Oh Jerry believe me you can believe it.

Bryan, as it goes if it isnít detailed itís just a toy.

Oh Rick believe me you can believe it.

Thanks Carl. Itís a commercial piece of hydrocal. Dave ran it through the bandsaw vertically to thin it down. And he did it without breaking it ! Heíd have to tell you what the brand was.

Kevin all "junk" is welcome.


A 1939 Pontiac joins the junk yard. Itís a nice resin kit from down under. Unfortunately I got it sometime after the box was opened and some of the parts were missing.

The rust holes are compliments of a #68 drill bit. The rust is by powders and oils.

Great job, Frank! You've really raised the bar with that one. But why junk it? Nothing that a little Bondo won't fix.

Bill, Priceless . . . it didnít cost me anything.

Jerry my butt is flat spending so much time weathering it.

Russ, hum Bondo, does that bring back memories to the early days of my automobile career.

Kevin Ė ask away. Thatís what this forum is for. It was Presidentís Day yesterday (better known as Washingtonís and Lincolnís birthday day) and I canít tell a lie.
