Mark, I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing technical difficulties. There is nothing worse than getting yourself some time at the bench and settling in only to be hit with a road block.

Keep at it mate, I'm really looking forward to seeing your cars getting finished.

Cheers, D

Hi guys it's way past time for me to do an update, first I am glad to see so many great builds, you guys are doing great work.
My first 3 pics are of the 426 hemi from the beginning to the pretty much finished engine, the last pic is of the impala 409 engine, so far I am pretty happy with the way they look.
I should have a pic in a few days of the dart interior, it's pretty much done, all comments welcome.

I can only echo, what has been said about keeping this thread open. The battle between the mighty Mopar and the puny Chevy is infinite.
Gorgeous color Damian.
Awesome engine detaile Robert. Great to see you back here.

Time for an update, first pic is the chassis, last to of the interior, nothing to fancy very simple. I would have posted an update a while ago but my camera died. I really like the color of that GTO Damian.

Hi, guys.

Good idea to keep the thread open. I have still a Plymouth which can find its place here, whenever that's going to be. And I bet I'm not the only one with unfinished business.

Great work on the body, Damian - it looks neat. (Not particularly liking the color - looks like cheap nail polish - sorry to say it).

Robert, nice work on the engine and interior - keep it up!

And, yes, I'm still alive... (banned from my modeling table for unknown term)

Cheers!

Well, monsoon season is almost over, I found my old air compressor, dug out my Badger 200. I might be ready to try painting the Camaro once again.

Hi, guys!

I had such a blast with this group build that I didn't forget it yet!

I know, it was a long absence but eventually I managed to put my crap together and got alive.

Anyhow, there I am, with a slideshow on Camaro build. Please note that the movie it is NOT monetized, it's all for your enjoyment.

Jesper, absolutely glad you liked it. As a matter of fact, I used older foto footage to activate my YT channel in anticipation to filmed material - I just finished shooting my last build but I'm gonna need another week to edit the project, with Romanian subs and all that.
Thanks for watching!

Well, I'm working on it.. Dug out the Pavla Curtis Hawk 81 for the Foreign fighters and started some work on that, Now I'm looking a Kitech AH-1T Sea Cobra for Helicopters.
