Wow, John, those are great! I love that '59 Pontiac... can we see more of that puppy?!
Believe it or not, I'm in the home stretch with that one...when I posted the primer pics I realized that they were taken just about a year ago (!) I'll be posting it "On the Shelf" within a week or two.
I'll have to dig a bit but here are 2 pictures of one of my close to being finished projects. Built from the venerable old AMT 40 Ford Coupe kit. Gary In the case of this primered Merc, it's finished! Built in the early 1980's from, again, an AMT kit. This one from the AMT 50 Ford Convert. kit. Revell 41 Willys Gasser kit with the nose modified to look like a 40. It seems that most of my unfinished builds don't even have a coat of primer on them. Thanks for lookin' in, Gary

I've been building custom models since the 50's. Does that make me experienced, or just old? I'm old! Gary Hatstat

Heres my 30's Bugatti inspired Peterbilt in primer. I hope it qualifies..I think it does...its all pre 40s in theory and most of the parts are scratch built. My inspiration on the base model is an old Peterbilt from the 40s...not quite chain drive....but close!
The Aero era of the 30s when they were recommissioning old steam locomotives with new aero styled body work is partially what inspired this build. Even though its not a car like many entries here, I wanted to share it and get some good feedback on how to proceed with a few details and get this baby finished!...its 1/32 scale.
This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!
