Thanks for the pics Wayne. I'll send the link to Marcia and ask her to put it on the FAST website. In case some you missed it, the FAST website is here -

Monoped - Hey Brian, we missed you. FAST meetings are the 1st Saturday of every month and usually at the Ocala Hobby Lobby. February 2012 will different because we'll be up at the Jaxcon show. But March 3, 2012 we'll be back in Ocala. The club members are going to build the 1940 Ford pickup and will build it anyway they want - no holds barred. All builds will be presented at the November 2012 meeting. Should be fun to see what happens.

Hey Dr. Cranky and MikeMc - that's my '57 Chrysler. I was trying to go a little old school by using Olds Fiesta hubcaps and pinheads to simulate door knobs for a grill and many thanks to Fatkidd for his expertise and doing the fog paint job.

Thanks for digging out that post Doug.

FAST had it's March meeting today at the Hobby Lobby in Ocala. It was another well attended meeting with 22 people in attendance. There were plenty of cool finished and in progress builds showcased and I believe somewhere around 15 or 16 people in attendance purchased the 40 Ford kit that was made available for the club build that will be completed and displayed at the November meeting. It will be interesting to see how many different types of builds are created from this kit.

Below is the link to todays pictures from the meeting.

Wayne forgot to mention the excellent "create your own decals" tutorial that he gave. We ended up selling 21 of the 24 kits we had, Wayne. A couple of members were absent so they'll get a chance to purchase next month.

Brian, dude if you haven't already, you gotta get involved in this 40 Ford pickup "build off thing"....great fun.
Making the meetings is one thing.......heck, I showed up 15 minutes before it was over last go around.
If you can't make it to the meetings...no worries....build a truck and I'm sure between now and the finish date we can figure out some way to include your model if you can't be there.

After-all, that's what F.A.S.T. is all about........good folks having a good time.
Anyway.......here's the kit everyone is building their own version of.
No rules other than the Nov. deadline.......build it any way you want, (probably) should use something from the kit, LOL.
We're supposed to keep what we are doing as individuals to ourselves until the unveiling.......Arrrrggggggg!
