I'm a member here obviously, and on the SAE forum, though I don't participate there much. The format of the forum is a little odd.


Likewise with the Trains forum, a member there, but it too is odd.

I participate on Nscale.net quite frequently, as I'm also interested in model railroading.


67-72chevytrucks.com is another forum which I am am member of, but don't actively participate in. Mostly just browse and look at pictures.


I recently also joined abody.net and the chevycitationsforever yahoo group as well, but mostly to peruse and look at pictures.


What other online communities do you belong to, model car or otherwise?

A lot of guys here also belong to the Spotlight Hobbies Board.   I belong to a board for Toyota Celicas and Jaguars since I own a 1:1 of each.

No longer active on most but:


Mini Truckin' community (on Mini Truckin' Magazine's forum)


j-body.org (Cavaliers and Sunbirds/Sunfires)


S10 Planet (Self Explanatory)


S10 Forum (Self Explanatory)


Lay It Low (Their model section is sooo disorganized.)


Blazin Low (S10 Blazer, Jimmy, Envoy Forum)


If I could afford a classic to fix up the way I want, I would be on the related forums as well.

I'm one of the ones that's on Spotlight, too. I'm also active on Stovebolt.com, which is a pre '72 Chevrolet and GMC truck site. I used to be very active on Gearz, but after they changed the format, and most of the old crew seemed to not post much, I somewhat drifted away from it.

Semi model related, I am also registered on Joecustoms.com, a GI JOE action figure customizing site, but haven't posted on there, mainly just lurk and check out the gallery posts for ideas for my own customs.

Here, and ForCBodiesOnly.com I build models and I have a C Body Mopar I'm restoring, not much need for another forum.


Ialso lurk on FullsizeChevy Forum (though they cater more to the newer '99+ GM Trucks)
