  1. Yeah, get those clamps on right away, or it'll lose the antifreeze. Nice picture of the engine, all right, but the one that got my attention was the door opening with the ''Body By Fisher" emblem on the scuff plate. How'd you do that back in the day? Neat.
  2. I'm going to be waiting for the 'finish photos' of the model because I know they will be remarkable images. The continuing story of the Toronado, or anything else. is going to be interesting enough to make the wait pleasant. I always feel better when I come here and browse for a little while. Or, a long while. Carry on, we await your posts.
  3. Roger, I'd like to make some really nice compliments, but the guys are way ahead of me in stating what a neat job that trunk lid ended up being. From the first posts beginning this huge, beautiful project, until these ending ones the journey has matched the fabulous model. What a treat to have been around for much of it. You and it are both treasures. Thank you!
  4. Roger, this is going to be a delight. You are a natural storyteller. We await your tale.......
  5. Roger, you sure know how to start the new year. It's a wonderful model, and your photography today is stellar. Happy New Year.
  6. Roger, I would appreciate any of the model autos you have constructed getting discussed. The entire body of work is remarkable, as are the individual projects. Wouldn't mind a tour through the restoration of your full size cars either. You are a terrific instructor in addition to being a talented builder. Forge on, my friend !! Merry Christmas to you, and the rest of those here to follow this project. I hope you all will enjoy the season.
  7. Looks just like a full size auto with a bunch of sandwich wrap on it. And a big ruler under. Looking very nice, and the finish is very attractive in the light this photo has.
  8. Pleased to hear that you feel better after the nasties got you down. We all must have been getting antsy for some news of your progress. I was thinking that if I had a way to thank you for all this wonderful project, what would it be? Now, after learning you were down, I think that what I wish for you is continued health and happiness for a long, long time.
  9. Trunk lid is beautiful. It looked good before. But, knowing it's precise is a comfort to us watching this come together. What solder do you use that the fumes don't contaminate nearby items that are fully finished.? Are there registration papers in the glove box? I ask because you'll get pulled over for sure with no plates on the rear.. haha
  10. "great care... will proceed now.....door wires". Roger, we wouldn't believe you'd do anything besides these things. The only thing surprising here is that you've not figured out a way to make the gas gauge and speedometer work too! Or....have you?
  11. Roger, your work is only surpassed by the patience you exhibit. Seeing a difficulty with the right side door's wire routing now (as if I'd ever have got to here), would have me swearing, packing it all up in a 'forget me' box for the top shelf in the closet. Then, more swearing and banging stuff around for the rest of the day.haha. You, sir are a wonderful reminder for us to keep our eye on the goal. Now, where did I put that rear main bearing shell? I know I saw it last week....................
  12. Roger, let me join with all the others to tell you how much these updates tell of your skill. I've been away from the 'puter for a while, so I got a bigger shot of 'news' here than usual. All the words of praise fall short. All the expectations are met and then some. The finished model will represent one of the finest models ever created, certainly the best 'article' on construction, and a testament to the master workman that produced both. Thanks for this.
  13. Those pictures of the frame assembly are so stunning, Roger, that I think you'll have restorers of the actual autos using your construction here to build the real cars. Life imitating art? Could happen.
  14. I'll suggest that your work is very good if it'll stand up to the photo views. You say they are forgiving, but most model hobbyists think that, because the camera only 'sees' what is there it'll never get fooled into seeing what it wants. Therefore, if no flaws- or very few- show in the pictures, it's because they really aren't there. I've used photos to find goofs in my brass locomotive construction, and sure enough, a screw head that my eye accepts looks like holy hell in a photo. Just as an example. Roger, your modeling is extraordinary. Thanks for the inspiration.
  15. This is my first post here, but it's a long, long way from my first visit. I've been following this thread (and a few others) since I don't remember when. Fabulous and interesting to learn about an automobile and its miniature recreation all in one spot. Bravo. As it nears completion, I along with others, I'd bet, are reading each new post with a bittersweet feeling. The desire to have it run on endlessly is battling with the excitement of seeing the finished work. Roger, you are a hero to this aging guy in middle of the Nevada desert.
