My latest Willys project in mock-up stages, the body and chassis just sitting together to make sure everything is gonna fit correctly before anything gets glued. So far so good!

Well after A LOT of head scratching........I've decided to pull this one out of the 'mothballs' for awhile!  I think I started it back in 1998. It's been painted three different times! I finally decided on this custom mixed silver, It's not a bright silver, or a dark greyish color. But kind of half way in the middle! I do have most of the parts cleaned up, and hopefully I can make some progress now!

I hear ya, I have about ten cars to build and decals for his Sazuka Japan AC Delco car and the Wheaties car along with Jr's special run cars. I have decals to build about ten more. Just need to set up an assembly line of painting and building some year and build them.

Not much sectioning going on but got a new workbench in Saturday! This replaced an old table doing duty for years. A new wall surround also will let me get things organized so I'll never misplace anything (yeah, right)! The bench is twice as long and a bit less deep than the table . so I can reach the back wall. Just the light and some plugs to install today.

I would love to have that much space!

Ditto that.....

I gotta move my chair out so I can get into mine. Then I gotta step out into the garage to think what I'm doing next.....

Looks nice, Mike.

 

Right now, I don't even have an open tray-table.

 

I'm thinking next time I'm subbing, I might sneak into the art room for a few minutes after school and use one of the tables for a little building.

Yes, I have that problem as well..... Which is why I have recently disposed of about ten % of the collection. Still too many choices! Much of this has come from a local hobby shop's "scratch and dent" section. We can rifle through the stuff and most of the time the kit is fine. And it ends up being a $4.00 kit. At that price, even if there is a missing or damaged piece, it works just for kit bash projects!

One of my  LHS's sells NASCAR kits 4 for 20 all the time. Most of them are still sealed in plastic!
