Hi All, Here’s my first 2019 post. I recently completed this VW Bus as a birthday present for my wife. In +/- 50 years of modeling this is my first non military vehicle I’ve modeled, so it’s a bit rough around the edges, so please don't look [...]
Another one of my favorite Chrysler products. This kit was kit bashed with Monogram's 1969 Dodge Super Bee. The Super Bird kit was way off in detail in certain areas. I used the engine bay, chassis, suspension, rear axle, engine, exhaust (muf[...]
Just before I retired from NYPD in 1995 I built this NYPD "Bubble" Chevrolet RMP (Radio Mobile Patrol) kit. I custom mixed the blue department colors using Testor's small bottle enamel paints. I airbrushed the colors and used Testor's enamel c[...]

My new project. Trying to Imitate carbon.
"...probably the prettiest Ferrari in a long, long time!" - Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear BBC2.
