Here are a couple of mine.

 

Ford Hy Ranger platform. Everything from the rear of the cab back is scratchbuilt.

And for something different...a 1/87th (HO Scale) GP40TC locomotive.

The bed and sides on this L700 were scratchbuilt using Evergreen sheet and strip and Basswood from the wood display at Hobby Lobby. There's roughly 10 hour of work in this.

Nearly everything in this picture is scratch built. The bed and cabinets are all basswood.  The mattress is two thicknesses of basswood covered with tissue. The pillow is just wadded up tissue. The blankets are painted paper towel. The coffee maker and coffee pot are both made from bits of plastic. The sink is half a fuel tank from the parts box, repurposed.

All of this just reinforces what has been repeated often on this forum:

 

Treat every component, every subassembly, as a complete model by itself. That's how amazing work happens.

The items on here are amazing!


This is my second project made from brass. It is a copy of the real Autotwirler.

The 1/18 diecast car was modified to be a body shell. The body rotisserie is all scratch built from brass.
