 Lots of kits. That would be fun to go thru.

Most of them appear complete and unstarted. I'll post a pic when I get them all stacked and organized. It's gonna take me a couple days to get it all lined out, get the parts organized and arranged the way I like, and get my new bench set up. I split this with another guy. What I showed is only half of it. I had the car so packed their was a kit in my lap.

What did I get today? I don't even know yet. I haven't had time to go through it! I'm guessing somewhere around 100 kits, mainly Fords. Parts and pieces galore. Half built cars. Tons of styrene, glue, cutting mat, tools like crazy. A brand new lathe. And a rockin paint booth!

Oh, and a 1:1 flat tire...

So this is my entry an amt gto which I am swapping the 455 for a 396\427 Chevy motor which is paired to a c6 ford trannie. I am trying to keep this period correct but there will be some modern things added.the paint scheme planned is going to be a brown to look like a normal le mans so it won't get pulled over but that could be subject to change.
Engine mock up and wheels

I recognize that trailer! Had a little metal truck with a golf cart right?

So I actually told one of my friends tonight about my modeling hobby. Turns out she used to build model airplanes with her stepdad! She knows how much skill it takes and appreciates it. She said she missed it so I asked her to build one with me. She said she just might!

I play sports (run track and play football) but that seems to be all that kids these days care about, active sports. Beside the FFA kids I know, nobody is into cars in my grade (10th). Outside school, all kids care about are sports, games, or minor things like riding bikes or skateboards. Nobody is into mechanical things anymore, sure if I wasn't into drag racing or cars in general, I doubt I would have started building models. I believe that's what's wrong with kids these days, we have nobody interested in the trades

I know exactly what you mean. Almost no one I went to high school had an interest in cars and if they did, their favorite car was a Bugatti or Lambo. Unrealistic stuff that they are familiar with because of the rap scene. We had a car show at my school to and their was a student class. There were 4 student cars at the last show at a high school of 800.
