Thank you very much! I'm glad to share it.
Edward, Sorry I couldn't get Sam And Dean, But tried! Don't let your misses see my album! I've done all but Herbie! Knight Rider does have the Michael figure and Kit is lit up.

You're very welcome. I think anyone would agree that the praise offered is well deserved for anyone who is a fan of the topic matter! 😉 I have looked at your album and already shared it with the missus. The lighting on your work really brings them to the next dimension. The missus positively loved your work but admits that she would be frightened to try to meddle with electronics. (She's similarly frightened of photo-etched and turned brass parts but gradually I'm getting her to warm up to stepping into a new dimension of model building.) I've never even considered adding electronics to my builds.

I'd imagine that few resin figure producers would be willing to pay the royalties on the likeness of any of the characters out of Supernatural. That having been said I've seen some that will market movie/television characters under vague terms but are obviously those from such a franchise. As far as I can tell nobody has done this to go with the new AMT kit; Yet.

We just got out of a humid, windless and rain free 90 degree heat wave the likes of which I haven't seen in this region since the early 90s. None of us were in any mood to arrange our new hobby room let alone try to build anything. Yesterday we had a day of storms that came along with a refreshing low pressure system out of the North to bring us back down to daytime temps in the 70s. We'll be getting back to transforming our hobby room this weekend or next week! None of us can wait to start building again!!

In case you might be curious, it closed with only one bid at the opening price.

I bought this kit for the rims to use on My Eleanor build, but decided to build it. Anyone going for this kit, be warned that it will be a challenge to make it come out good. The directions are as clear as mud! The engine compartment lacks detail as well as accuracy. The interior is better than the 73 Mustang from AMT. Very few locator pins and no engine mounts, front bumper locator pins are slightly off as well as other issues. I will post some of the issues in pics. The decals come with markings for a Mach 1, but only the rear stripe and nothing for the hood or sides? Really? Why I decided to torcher myself with this when I still haven't finished the 73 kit? Only God knows!

Model building and electronic wizardry, is there anything you cannot do Tim ?

Thank you Tom and Nigel. Nigel you're too kind, as there are many things I haven't been able to do as well as some things you have done.

So in the beginning of this it looked like a decent kit only lacking in detail decals. Well so much for that! 1st my fault for not test fitting the doors before installing, then after hours of trying to get the front of the dash to fit and After installing the completed interior tub into the body the doors won't close! Come to find out the lower part of the dash as well as the upper door mold on the body prevented the closure of the doors, to which I had to file to fit. Then I went to test fit the lower chassis only to find the rear tires didn't fit right in the fender wells. Also for some reason the engine didn't fit right! Come to find out that the single pin mount for the engine was off by about 5mm which you could see by where they had the steer linkage bent to accommodate the oil pan. I assumed that this had been figured out! My bad again! So as close as I thought I'd have this done by now, everything is ripped up so it can be assembled correctly! As anything with these old kits Round2 puts out, be prepared to build a puzzle not a model kit! Pictures will follow shortly.

Following. Fitting after painting is always a bummer.
22. February, 06:10
Tim Heimer
You know it Bill!! This kit is one of those one thing leads to another! I've had to redo the top half of the engine from handling it as well as other things! I have all sorts of filing dust inside the interior I have to some how get out as well! UGH!

Yea Mr.Bob! Yes , since this is the 2nd Nomad I've built and her 1st one got crushed I decided that this would be Tim's replacement car for her.
