I just started building model cars with my Stepdad last year and so far have completed 2 cars: the Revell "Kurtis Kraft" Indy racer and the AMT 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline. Both have placed in the Portland Roadster Show model car contest. The '51 Chevy placed 3rd this year, but my very first build (the Kurtis) placed 2nd over all!
My Stepdad and I enjoy building cars together, especially the classics. We have built a pretty good collection of vintage Revell, Monogram and Jo-Han kits.
Now I am starting my entry for next year's Model Show and Contest....something a bit different then most kids my age are building, the Monogram 1934 Duesenberg Weymann Torpedo Phaeton (an original 1963 issue). It will be lighted and no detail will be spared , because I'm determined to win Best of Show and First place in the Junior Division.
I will be starting a build thread on the Duesy and giving as I make progress....so wish me luck and stay tuned!
