    You don't pick easy ones do ya! Search yields zero results..but again..I got a 3d file..when you going to let us teach you to craft your own models? Seems like that's the only way to get this one also! Still going to be tricky..lots of curves for a card model!

    Thanks Gandolf50. At 65 I think I'm too late to learn 3D and its hard to unfold on a MacBook. Been a commercial artist too long I guess. I love to build, kit bash, and I will do recolor/repaints. I had a thought about using a paper model as a start for a Phantom of the Opera HotRod kit bash.

    I thought those MacBooks were able to unfold themselves;) and no 65 ain't too old.. I'm learning new software everyday! Course I just spent half a day importing objects to Unity for some animation/game design..another bugger..having to change things to make them work! Now that might make ya feel old at the end of the day!;)

    The MacBook should be afraid of your 65, not vice versa! :) Believe me, once you have figures out how to do it it is much fun and gives you much freedem. :)

    If I wasn't in fall leaf mode at my home and my late mother's house I might think about it. We are also getting our home ready to sell and packing up and selling off stuff to move to a new home at the beach. So much stuff going on I can't even think about getting into something else. I do enjoy building models and I want to get back to my repaint redesign of the Joker's and Harley Quinn's Clown Cars.

    As a proud owner of a 67 Plymouth Valiant, with restored LA-8 (and finishing the interior this spring), I frequently wish there were more molar paper kits, since the plastic kits make hen's teeth look common...

    And don't get me started on trying to find a 62 Dodge Lancer...my next project!

    Burton to other things...what software is recommended for design that works on a Mac?


    Thanks!

    I know you meant "Mopar", but "molar' models would make a great gift for a good dentist. '67 Valiant, Nice!! :)

    Valiant...Nice one of my first cars was a Valiant.. though a 1961 Plymouth push Button, possibly one of the ugliest ever built! Here is a pic of one like I had could even be the old ugly beast sitting next to the one I wanted and couldn't afford at the time!

    The sisters boyfriend had the"Ugly" one. He was a master mechanic. When it was done, it had huge slicks, a big block V-8, new 4 speed, on the floor, ladder bars, posi-rear end and blew the doors off of every car he raced. He also gave it a fantastic paint job. Amazing what this one person did all by himself, in around a month, to that car.

    X2 one taking them both!! ;)

    Well, one man's ugly is another's restoration-passion.

    I just finished with a ruby red version of this:





    and am about to start the 62 Lancer, which is burgundy and beautiful.






    The last of the sculpted iron-works...

    OMG! Those are two beautiful cars. They are sculpted. They fit your profile perfectly. I didn't know you did this kind of work. I am seriously considering building a rotisserie for my M.G. to get it "right'. I am putting the exhaust down the transmission tunnel along with the fuel and brake lines, which will be in steel tubes for protection. The car will be completely flat on the bottom. I am considering a 4 bar link for the rear, I cannot find an independent suspension that I can cut up for it. Still looking. I have a 3:9 ratio rear end, I need a slightly taller one (3:7) for better top end cruising. Too expensive to change the gear box, and I have the rib cage one which is desirable, and freshly rebuilt by me. First gear is too short, the motor is blueprinted and hopped up quite a bit, . Biggest improvements we are cam with 10 degrees more duration, same lift, forged pistons, header, and a 40mm Side draft Weber, and Dual Point Mallory distributor. I got 105 mph out of the car, but the tranny and rear end wear screaming at me. :)

    With his graphic artist skills, I wish I could provide him with something. Too much on my plate right now. :(
