2019 was a year of change, experimentation and recapitulation for me. Below my TRaKable builds are presented in order of completion. 2019 started out with a fairly ambitious project which was begun in 2018 but was sufficiently complex to bleed over into the New Year. That’s the resin bodied Fiat Competition coupe. Then I worked in new, non-TRaKable subject matter as far as modeling is concerned, but something I actually know a fair amount about, classic sports cars. I built two Porsches on the trot, a 356 and a 904. Then back to traditional hot rod fare with a couple of experiments in patina, a bare metal Deuce roadster and a barn find ’48 Ford street rod. Then I finally got around to building a project I had wanted to do ever since I built my first (and thus far only) Rat Rod for the 2016 NNL West – a “clean” show rod version of the same car, based on a ’29 Ford RPU body shell. And then finally a couple of half-finished projects from my stash finally got completed, a ‘29 Ford altered roadster and a late 50’s style digger.
I certainly enjoyed sharing them with you all. Here’s to a happy and fulfilling 2020! B.
“Krazy Koopy” Fiat Competition Coupe
Revell Bare Metal ’32 Ford Highboy Roadster
“Faded Glory” Revell ’48 Ford barn-find street rod
Love 'em all, but it's the Krazy Koop's dramatic paint and graphics, and the T-bucket that grab me most. Thanks for making such good use of the 3D printed parts on the 'bucket! It's very satisfying to see You covered a healthy cross-section of subject matter this year, both within and outside of the Trakable realm!

Thank you everyone. I appreciate it. 2019 turned out to be a pretty satisfying year modeling-wise for me. I got to finish up some projects that previously had frustrated me and tackle a couple of ideas that had been rolling around in my head for quite a while, never mind cracking open the vintage sports-racing car thing, which will probably draw me away from things TRaKable from time to time.
You had a good year! All of them are very nicely done and it's also good to see a great variety of different subjects. It's really hard to pick a favorite, but it would probably be either the Ford T Show Rod or that Altered Roadster. Really nice work and hopefully you'll have a good 2020!
