    Model car building

    Since eerything else is getting moved over here, i thought i would do mine too. But i am too lazy to retype or copypaste the story behind each model, so for now you just get the purdy pichers.

    my first build, 1950 Ford F1



    Model of my 95 F150





    1980 Ford monster truck



    1991 F350 centurian



    triple axle trailer



    the whole combo together


    #2
    Deere 4430



    Deere barge box



    Deere 310 backhoe



    all them together as a half ass display

        And the collection together. I rearrange them far too often, I should probably stop doing that before i drop one or something




        So theres the condensed version, if anyone else builds, feel free to post them up

            Nice collection.



            I'm a life-long model builder, but haven't touched one since my divorce (4 years ago).


            I'll dig up my last model-build:

                  Yeah; I'm an aircraft model-builder first, and then vehicle model-builder second.


                  I just gave my oldest son pretty much my whole model stash (100+ models).

                  Do you go to IPMS meetings or competitions?

                    I'm pretty sure I'm far enough from any city big enough for that kind of stuff. There used to be a model section at a local indoor car show, but the show isnt much and I havent been in years. Next year I might look into it

                      not really a model car, but an R/C. I started it, and never really finished it, packed it up when I moved a few years back and haven't gotten back to it. It's about 1/6th scale.

                          wheel base is about 16". I'll get back to it... eventually. hah

                          I wanted to make it out of all metal, to give it good weight. Here's some of the links that I made, tigged on some nuts for some tiny heim joints I found on McMaster:

                              First place I used to head when we went to KMart, TG@Y was the model section. Does anyone have a web site that sells them
