When you look at a kit does it assemble it's self?We could make model car "Most interesting man in the world" quotes for you.

Semi-unrelated question...

But do you display all of your built models at home? Where and how?

Harry......actually at this time I am living with my Mother and Brother.......I have my own room and all my possessions are stored in the garage......this is what happens when you go thru 3 marriages and kids.......but,actually its not that bad......I am just about back on my feet.....to answer your question when I am finished building a model it goes in a box and is stored away.......when I go to a model car show I will bring a few models out of storage......I have quit a few......but,a few I have made for friends or family.......this current build will go to Sturgis at my fathers Easyriders Saloon restaurant for display.....I sure wish I could display all my stuff........thanks for asking.

I was wondering, because you build so many of them! I couldn't imagine all of them on display... you would need a castle to have enough room for that! :D
