It sure is surreal to visit the cemetery at Omaha Beach and then play with the kids on the beach itself.
My Grandfather only told me about his experiences there once and never mentioned it again.
My grandfather was taken to Germany as forced labour and walked home after the war. That's all he ever said about the war.
Just about got mine finished. Wheels and tires are all that is left.

I just read an article on the restoration of the Lawman 70 Boss 429 Mustang. My wife bought the perfect color blue to make it. Do you have an Motor wheel Spyder mags?
I don't think I've ever seen those wheels in a kit before, sorry.
A post on another forum has resulted in a number of kits having them. However, my friend Tim who lives about 10 miles away is graciously donating a set. 🙂

Danke, Neuling !
Cool looking VW 👍
Thanks, James !
No lights on the roof Bob? Now that's a surprise! Lol, seriously, she's a nice build buddy. First car I ever learned to drive in. I'll never forget the sound of that engine, or the feel of that gas peddle, under my foot. It was nearly as big as my sneaker.
This was for a friend's daughter, she loves those old bugs and he asked me to build one for her.
The second flowerfull Beetle 🙂 Nice. I'm always smiling about the wide fenders and the tiny wheels.

I totally agree, and just FYI, Rustoleum, who owns Testors, has discontinued the Model Masters paint line, which is a real shame.
"With a long history of producing quality hobby kits and supplies, we are evolving our strategy to focus more keenly on Testors, our flagship brand. To that end, we are discontinuing our PACTRA, AZTEK, and Model Master brands as demand for these products continues to decline. We will continue to support the hobby market with a robust line of aerosols, brush paints, tools and accessories – always looking for opportunities to innovate in these categories." As of 2020
Sad ! I bought out my local of all the discontinued items, about 50 cans of paint for 1.50 a can and told them there was really no reason for my to come back.
And I bought out all the MM primer I could get my hands on. It's really good, sprays perfectly right out of the bottle, and sands very well.
Yeah, I loved that stuff. Now just need to find out what name their selling it under now.
Bummer! I like and have a lot of MM paints. I am OK with Duplicolor automotive products. The problem is the $11+ price per can and the limited color availability. Since I have airbrushes now, I likely migrate to acrylics which does not have the VOCs.

I love that movie! I'm watching!
let it come! I have the same "project" planed :-D . all parts (except the decals) collected, waiting for the start.
Don't forget the Cougar.
That is so cool! One of my favorite movies of all times. I live the starting scenes. I'm on that. Surely.
Yes, the Cougar...sitting in and watching Ricky :-D

Only you can do this Bob
They found the red one here a few years ago, but I'm going with the Million dollar Green Hornet !
just a couple days ago i watched the story from "Little Red" - and that was such an great story that catched my interest. while watching, the "Green Hornet" was told as a background(Teaser).
I had the same thoughts to rebuild it as a replica - so i'm looking forward to your build.
this side https://www.cjponyparts.com/resources/green-hornet-mustang is awesome!
I always thought, it is a show room replica kit and it has no engine! I was wrong on this kit. Good paint job 🙂 I'd try to lower the front axle a little and compared to the picture of the original, I'd paint the rims steel colored. On my point of view is the front angle the best of the Camaro. It looks bada$$ 😄
This was for a friend, this is what he wanted, was all to his specs. I thought it would look better lowered with black rims, but he has this car, just a V6 base model.
Hmmm. Black rims would be sweet 🙂. Do you want to build one for your own? But to say it clear: it looks good as it is. I scrolled through a kit review and was estonished, how hood this kit seems to be. The seperate body parts (which are black) is great! It's a pretty good kit.
This was the all white mold kit, much better than the Showroom Replicas. But I'll do the 50th Anniversary one for me, I have a project listed along with a 67 First year. But a very good kit for sure.

I have the 50th Anni in my stash too. Where I work, there sits one in the parking garage. I always peek on it, when I pass it.
I've seen a few up close, pretty nice car.

So much beer...
So much Czech beer... 😭
I normally don't care for watching videos... but this one sounded so tempting... wow!
You could definitely win the gopher war in the garden with this ! LOL !
Nice one Bob 😁
As you have seen. They build nice if you put in the effort.

Been contemplating doing a truck one day, I just picked this one up because it was 20 bucks.
$20!!! I paid $36 for mine and I thought I got a good deal!
We can make it yours if you need another one. It's sealed and mint.
Thanks Bob. I am good.The two I did are all I need for now. I have quite a variety of semis I have yet to build before I do another go 'round on on one of these.
Wow Bob, what a bargin. Same kit in the UK on eBay starts at £50 / $69 minimum !!
I'll Probably end up selling it, I just listed a ton of kits for sale. If there is any thing y'all want in the stash or for sale, let me know.
Bob, that was a bargain! I'm with Nigel!! We pay silly prices on AMT kits here. I can appreciate the shipping costs, but some stores severely hike up prices.
I just picked up for trade fodder, Big rigs aren't really my thing. Guess it comes from pulling them over every day. Oh well, LOL !

Nice Trans Am👍, I remember when my old man was alive he had this car in exactly the same colors. He only let me drive her once, she went from standing still to break neck speed in the blink of an eye. You couldn't have any one in the tiny back seats either, because every time you went over a bump the rear tyres would scrape on the body.
I know what ya mean, same thing happens in my Mustang, I don't even know why I keep them nobody even fits back there any way. LOL 🙂
Nice! The kids are begging me to do one ever since they saw the movie last year. Too expensive to ship to Europe though.
Nice build. Someday I'll get to mine.
