I would have to say this would be the one I'd save. This was my first major kit bash using 3 trucks a tank, another truck frame, and a lot of misc parts. I put a lot of work in this build and this truck also helped me realise my child hood dream of doing well in a big show. Cool topic :D Posted Image

I would have to say my Ford F350 Super Duty because I almost lost it forever when I sold it on ebay. I was fortunate that UPS almost completely destroyed it in shipping, So the guy sent it back. I had it insured for 200.00 more than I sold it for and was able to refund his money, get the truck back and make the extra 200.00 on top of what I sold it for on ebay! Since then the truck has been put back together and is show ready.

But then I would really have a problem giving this one up, but thats a whole differant story.....

Probably Nellybelle cause it's the really first time that I did a lot of scratch building and kit bashing to accomplish one of my favorite TV vehicles. Plus it reminds me of a better time. :D

This may not be my absolute best build (I think my 1/43rd Starter Ferrari 275P is it) but it's one of my favorites. It's the closest I found to my first 1:1 car which was a '54 Ford Customline. I painted the '53 in the same colors and interior scheme as my car. Even though it's my favorite, I'm going to give this model to my brother who was a teenager at the time I owned it, and he loved it. I also gave him that Ferrari and a '57 Chrysler 300C, and I keep pestering him to take photos of them so I can post them in my gallery!

Just one, huh? Tough call...Well, I recently finished this one, and it was the longest to finish, as I boxed it away for a long time due to some issues. I started it in late 1991 or early 1992, as close as I can guess (kit was released in 1991, and I used reference pics from Motor Trend, April 1991), and finished it at the end of June this year...Revell 1969 Baldwin Motion Camaro. Lots of firsts here - valve stems, engine plug wires, fuel lines, heater hoses, sanded the back of the grille to open it up and foil casting of 3 'SS' emblems. Nice kit, few issues, and I wrecked a body and had to buy another kit to start over on the paint. Anyways...not my absolute favourite, but the one I put the most into over a long period of time, including learning a few techniques. Here it is:

I don't really have a favorite model...I just build stuff and move onto the next one..I sell off most of my work, so I try not to become too attached to any particluar one.

I did have alot of fun building the "Christine" Pro mod race car..It's not my best work, but it turned out well for the most part, and was a good experience for me trying a few different building techniques.

Uh, I guess we'll go with this one ~~~ although there were three others that were virtually tied for the honor!

This 1956 Studebaker Commander sedan was an AAM resin body (mastered by Juha Airo) combined with an AMT '53 Studebaker Starliner donor kit to create a phantom Kansas Highway Patrol car.

An older build, it is not my best effort ever, but one of my favorite projects and it still turns heads. Also my first magazine appearance.

This was a 24-hour build, Hasegawa curbside Nissan Bluebird (Datsun 510) with some unidentified parts box wheels and tires. This was just the most fun kit I've ever built. It all fit, it was fun, and I just had a great time putting it together. It's not my "best" but it was sure the most fun, and since that's what matters most I guess that makes it my favorite, too.


Nice work!! that's a very clean and precise 24 hr build...

Heck, it takes me over 24 hrs just to get a model up on it's wheels and sitting straight...LOL.
