I've been watching the builds in the forums, and must say that I'm very, very impressed. I had this thought that I would post some of my drawings as some inspiration for possible future builds.

With the drawings below I wanted to combine some Hot Rod legends with some WW2 plane legends - I reckon the '' war '' theme suites the Rods.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Nice work. Are you using pencils or watercolor, or am I way off base?

So do I, even though the Fords are more my thing. Not saying I don't like those- I really do! But I never really thought I'd have a legitimate reason to buy that Modelhaus Tucker kit. I think I might have one now, though...

'' I never really thought I'd have a legitimate reason to buy that Modelhaus Tucker kit. I think I might have one now, though... '' - that sounds good ;-)

Sven, those are exquisite. If those don't inspire some model building, I don't know what will. Anytime you feel the urge to "inspire" us, please do so.
