'58 Olds!!!!

A couple of months back I was looking hard for some '58 Oldsmobile pics built as kustoms....I didn't know John D'Agostino built one until I found this pic on Rik Hoving's fotki site. FREAKIN' BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for building such beauties John! Thanks to Rik for having such a great fotki!
I have a convertible in resin....I am thinking a '58 chevy roof would look nice on it!

'54 Ford sweetness!

Thanks to the beautiful photography and the beautiful work on this '54 Ford! WOW! I have to try and build this car someday. It has a '66 Impala roof, but I will find a '65 easier I think.

Thinking of a friend

Many modelers have seen his creations and heard his name. Not that many actually know him on a personal level, to claim him as a friend. I have known Bruce Owen since 2004 and he is a member of my club. Bruce spent many nights in our club chat room, answering questions, laughing, sharing photos and being a personable guy just like the rest of us. He is a human being and has a heart.
Bruce has been diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Bruce went to the doctor complaining of a pain in his arm and to find out he has a disease? Almost immediately after diagnosis Bruce was becoming bed ridden and using a walker to get around. That's how "dangerous" it is.
Very recently Bruce was admitted into a hospital for a blood clot, but is expected to be fine. This is not the end of the road as far as "danger" is concerned.
I want everyone to know he is not afraid and said he accepts the will of God.
I just wanted everyone to think of him and maybe it will help him through this. Here is a video to watch about MS.

Building a model from Art

This Jairus Watson art inspired me to build it in scale. I am using the AMT 1957 Ford Thunderbird T392 (older kit molded in black). Needless to say, in order to accomplish this task there will be some scratch building, modifying, kit bashing and after market parts involved.

Caddy Kick!

Steve Boutte finished his and posted on TRaK ,to enter for "MOM". His interiors and overall completions just make me DROOL!

Jimmy Flintstone's '49 Ford

I finally got done with this today. I tell ya what..this is a really nice body, but it's kinda "fun" putting it together with the AMT kit. The thing is...it's not gonna sit this low without some work, so you have been warned. Painted Oriental Kandy Blue, Modelhaus shoes.

Another Desoto!

I have not seen another one built, let alone as a Mild Kustom since I did mine. Steve Hinson built the "Spanish Fly" and mine is the Kandy Green one. We have met in person, I hope next time we can get photos of them together. His is really slick, the base is so cool too!
