  Hello Members, 


 As a hobby store manager and as a model car builder this is the one question that i have for everyone for years.


  Where is the Model car industry going where will it be in the next 15 to 20 years?


  I see a lot of kids on those video games more than everything i started building at the age of 5 years old my son that is 2 1/2 years old is building a little bit he understands what a model kit is and so forth. so my question to all memeber's is where will it be in the next 15 to 20 years

JMD 1939 Chevy Coupe Junker

03 November 2014 - 07:37 AM

After i came back to the Classic Plastic Model show 2014, I sat down on the bench and said i want to do something i had never done before. I always build shiny and nice well i said nope not this time so i took a 1939 Chevy Coupe that i had for a few years most of the parts got lost in the move from Mass to New Hampshire. So i took my Dremel tool and started to cut and bend and carve out rot holes etc etc. Now remind yourself that i had never done this before so it was a shot in the dark and never used AK Interactive paints and Pigments. so here is the out look of what i had done. 


 This project is not done since these pics have been taken i put a ripped down engine in it and i plan on finnishing it off with a junker diorama scene.
