even though its pretty basic, and its a modified (heavily modified) diecast, and jairus did the graphics (actually one of my favorite parts of the model) i could never let this one go:

Very cool. Do you actually have music set up to play with the display?

thanks!

but no, it would require a subwoofer about 10X the size of the model. or two of them.

That is totally cool. Hopefully. my eyes haven't deceived me. Is there really a Morris Minor under all that extra bodywork?

Well thats a hard one but since i have a hearse and i can fit alot of stuff in it i would say all my hearse builds would be saved.If i had some extra time i would save my four door 79 caddy as well.

Heres the 79

Love the outdoor photo shoot...that looks cool!! Anyway, Nice model!!


Colby, like J. Sauber said, I love the outdoor photo, and I love the scaled down load of wood, too! Nice work!


Thank you to you both - It certainly lacks some detail and weathering that I have learned to do since then, but I can always go back and add that. It had just started snowing when I came home, and thought I would give it a shot outside.

Sauber - I remember when you posted your Christine, and you have a great talent for detail.
Highway - I must say, I've never seen a truck that long, and I'm sure looking forward to seeing your unique end product.

It definitely has character - I like it. By the way Eric, I think that is one of the scariest avatars I have ever seen. To share just one story, I accidentally trapped one in my carport a few years ago, and it tried eating its way through the window frame to get out - nasty and stubborn critters.

Thanks Colby, it's stalled right now for a few minor issues, but I'll be getting back to it and posting updates in my thread soon. :D

It's pretty tough to pick a favorite...I like many of them for different reasons...

But, this would have to be number one:

It's the '57 Chevy pickup that I built with several Vette influences.

But then there's the....

honestly, i'd have to say my rat hauler set. i was the first time i ever branched out and kitbashed/scratchbuilt anything to make what i saw in my mind. (thanks for the push, geezerman) i put so much effort into both of these that i could honestly car les what would happen to the rest of my builds, and that includes all my aircraft builds as well.

i'm very sorry, craig. but i went searchin for the wips on that build i think i may have deleted them off my harddrive by accident. i researched my photobucket account as well, but to no avail were they anywhere to be found. sorry.

Seems like the latest one is usually the favorite one, but having grown up in Utah and being a big fan of Bonneville, I'd have to say this is my favorite.
