I don't have many kits from the fifties and the ones I was considering have already been spoken for so I decided to go with the unusual and unique and build this 1950 Talbot Lago. There are much better builders than me in this contest but I just had to be part of it. I've visited other forums and in my opinion none of them are as good as this one. I'm not saying that because I am an administer, I sincerely mean it. This forum and the members in it have meant so much to me and my modeling and helped me grow in the hobby I can't really put it in words. We work together with each other and help each other out, we encourage each other and don't tear anybody down and we are serious about the hobby and make lasting friendships knowing full well we will most probably never meet face to face. That's priceless folks. I never was a member of any forum when Iceman invited me to join almost four years ago and I was skeptical but I decided, after looking around, to take the plunge and I have never regretted it. I've made friends in here better than most of the ones I have known face to face and my modeling has grown a lot, that's why I just have to be part of the anniversary build off. This is my way of showing my appreciation for this forum and the members in here for being here and being who you are. Thank You. Oh, and here's the car.

First off that's going to be one helluva build Dennis. Can't wait to see you start cutting sprue on that one.
Secondly, I don't think you could have said it any better about this forum than what you did. There aint anywhere near the BS on this forum (come to think of it.................there aint ANY) that I've seen on any of the other forums that I'm on (and I'm on around 10 or 11 of them). I'm glad to be a part of this terrific gang and am looking forward to many more years on here. Kudos be to everybody here for making this a great place to do what we do best.......................build models.
Yesterday's gone and Tomorrow aint here yet. Today IS the best day we'll ever have.
I absolutely can't wait to see this one started!! I have wanted one of those for ages to be sure. Your not going to put a Hemi in it or something are you? dope-slap_zps6h5ivvpw
Just kidding guys, I do like Hemis!!
No, I'm not going to put a Hemi in it or cut it or anything. Probably be mostly oob except for detailing. Won't know for sure until I get into it. Things have a way of changing as you go along on a build. I think it is in a class by itself just like it is.
