Hello everyone, I've been building models off and on for over 30 years. The past 10 years I've gotten more serious about it. I started out building Modified Stock Cars from scratch for alley racing. They were pretty crude creations. Made with plastic coated wire and a hot glue gun! Over the years I learned a lot of good stuff from Magazines (such as Model Cars) and modelers of all skill levels. I am an automotive paint tech by trade and love cars. Most of my subjects are race cars and Ferraris. I like building mostly 1/20th and 1/25th scale. Recently I built my first 1/43rd scale kit. A Tameo kit, which was easier to build then I thought it would be. It helps when the kit is engineered right. Here is a pic of it completed. Thanks for looking, Jere Quallio

Welcome  Jere and Hello from Gilbert!! Nice work on the 1/43rd. I have a few 1/43rd kits and they can be addicting. Looking forward to seeing more of your builds.

You've got to be kidding, right?   :rolleyes:

 

No mistake about it, gang, Jere knocks them out of the park!  You should see his sprint cars!

Hey Guys, Thanks !!  Mark, Your builds are really good. I had the pleasure of judging them at DSC. I had a hard time picking between the two. :)

Thanks Jere!  I appreciate that. There are a lot of great builders here in the valley and surrounding areas, and I just try to plug along.
