Okay, to bring this back a little;

I made this Watson Indy car frame entirely from Evergreen Styrene rod and .010" sheet.

To me it is built from scratch.

Now here is a trailer I made for a top fuel dragster (Notice I didn't type FED, that's a whole 'nother rant! :( )

This too is made entirely from Evergreen Sheet and shapes like angle, etc. Except, of course, for the wheels and tires and those posters which were scanned from various sources. So, it's not really 100% scratchbuilt, or is it? :D

Since we've already touched on grammar Nazis (note lack of apostrophe) and baking from scratch, I figured this would be German, oops, germane. Full disclosure: I happen to have this t-shirt :D

Must every post on every thread be meaningful and profound?

We're just a bunch of model geeks sittin' around talking about stuff and having a little fun.


Agree! My friends and I gather for lunch occationally and the converstion is not topic limited. Some times the tangents are as much fun as the main topic. It is not the destination but the journey that is the joy in life.

I built my trailer about a year ago, Johnathan. It's supposed to represent the typical dragster trailer from the sixties so it's a quit a bit lower in height than a Galaxie trailer.

I haven't worked on it in a while and there are still a lot of details to add.

And yes, I hide stuff in photos too! :lol:

Hey wait a minute. I think you have something there.

Yes, Revell does make scratch built kits. They take plastic materials and they make a kit out of it.

So most of us do build scratch built kits.

I'm surprised no one has commented on post 103, above. If you don't know that stuff, you don't know real scratchbuilt.

My models usually contain parts from different kits as well as parts I fabricate. Until there exists a universally accepted term that describes this type of modelling, I guess it's up to me to determine how to describe it.

It's the lingo people develop that sets MY teeth on edge..."I just squirted my model with a rattle can and now I gotta let it gas out..."

I've seen that work before...it's exquisite, the real deal, and so far beyond my ability now....well, like I said, it's the real deal. Thanks for posting the links. It's good to have a reminder of something so incredibly inspiring.

And in the very same post you used the word "build" as a noun which is also incorrect. I'm just sayin' :D

But of course you're not alone in this. The incorrect usage of build has become so common as to be almost acceptable. Drives me crazy though. I have hundreds of completed models and several ongoing projects, but nary a "build" in the bunch!
