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

Nice collection. :smokin:



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:
I took the body from this kit

And placed it on this chassis:

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, [email protected] was the model section. Does anyone have a web site that sells them

i use hobbylinc.com quite a bit, the prices are good, and combined shipping is really great. like say it would be $7.80 to ship one model, for 2 it would only be $8.10. I always plan my next couple builds and buy several at once. Ebay is my other go to

I used to build model cars all the time in middle school and high school. After that I spent 10 years in the Navy and didn't have time/place for it.

my brother is just finishing this up for my nephew.
it's an scx chassis. crates, barells, trailer are all 3d printed. it's painted in the correct period paint that he used to paint his full scale m100 he built.

he went full old man scale modeler. working lights, 3d printed grill and bumper. the whole deal.
made my nephews design parts in the cad for it.

even found this 7#(?) test paracord or something that looks like rope.
