Just another car muddler here. (I've also been known as Ace {and/or Essex} on other model sites {and as Cornelius Winchester "Ace" Bass on those social media sites [so I can spy on my children]}). 

 

I've been building for nearly 45 years but I think my skills peaked about 30 years ago and now, alas, my eye balls are getting blurry. 

 

Although I strive to improve with every model, I only do it for fun. I like old cars, especially showroom stock versions, but I'm starting to like customs, rat rods and hot rods. I'd like to try building Andy Hardy's jalopy someday. I am officially boring myself now....

Yep, you got it. James May and Oz Clarke tried to drink a bottle of garlic wine near here on their BBC wine testing show.

Hey Neil...

If your interested, there is model car club in your area...the Monterey Bay Scale Auto Association

 

the models you are interested in building,  pretty much cover the spectrum of car modeling in our club

 

presently, we have about 5-7 active members and usually meet on the 1st Saturday of every month at different locations...Prunedale and/or Hollister

 

you can message me for more information

hope to hear from ya... B)
