Hi Guys - I've been building Rods and Customs since the fifties - when '57 Chevvies were brand new !

It started with a 1/32nd Scale Revell Mercury Montclair (still one of my favourite cars),

then the Chrysler New Yorker, Mk1 Lincoln Continental and Buick Riviera (echo's of Broderick Crawford and 'Highway Patrol').

I have since built hundreds of AMT, Johan, MPC, Monogram and various others between building 1.1 scale cars.

Hello Guys !  I have at least 50 started models, which I'll have a go at finishing this winter.

Is that a Plymouth Duster there - PappyD ?

I used to have a '74 - for real, red too - but back in the 80's 

I'm looking forward to the MPC Dodge Demon due out soon to reproduce a replica of mine.

(well, it did have the same bodyshell).

Welcome Eugene, I have a daughter in the UK, where about are you in the UK?  I plan on going over to the UK next year.  Got some nice looking builds, and I can relate I have about that many on the go now.

Hi there Dan. I live on the sunny borders of North Yorkshire and County Durham.

We don't tell the Londoners about our beautiful countryside - because they'd be up here buying up all the property !!! :D

 

PappyD - still wish I had my Duster - but sold it to a chap who I thought was as passionate about it as me - but just pulled the 340 motor for his stock car. ?? :o

My other US cars were a '79 Camaro and '69 Mustang Fastback.
