I saw your sticky about the new MCM Forum already reaching 300 members!

WHOO HOO!

Should be OVERFLOWING shortly........

I also saw where you asked for more models on the site. So here's another contribution:
A 1985 El Camino SS.

This was a commissioned piece, built to replicate the owner's 1:1 85 El Camino:

It was a 3 month project and in the end, the owner was VERY happy! Even got an extra "Franklin" tip!!
Base kit was the MPC 82 Elky kit. I opened/hinged the doors, added full engine detail using the new Pro Tech braided lines and fittings (see the "What's New?" column in this month's MCM # 111 for contact info ) and replicated the rest of the car from well over 100 photos that the owner supplied.

Here's a couple engine pics before installation:

Lots more pics can be seen here:

A fun build, plus I made some extra $$ doing it!!

I must say dave very impressive, but I believe Gregg was reffering to people putting more cars for sale on emodelcars...I am registered and need to put some stuff up for sale...###### procrastination...but I will say, I bought a kit from Gregg there, and I couldn't be happier with the price or the transaction.

The online auction site has just reached 300 registered users to bid, buy, and sell model cars online. It's free to use.
