as some of you may know from an under glass post a few weeks back I've taken to building some of the cars from cars( the movie)The sheriff is done and Docs almost finished. Alcladed the modified front bumper( one of my bet  Alclad jobs at that, picked it up with a piece of soft cotton cloth only to find the black underneath was still quite tacky 213625.gif ) so its been stripped and I'll re-paint this weekend.

so after my set back with Doc yesterday I decided to start on mater, using a 55 chev cameo as the starting point. Just going to post up pics but if you wanna know how I did something just ask

That movie is my Grandson's favorite (age 2). Just watched it again this evening for the umpteenth time, including "Ghost Light.

Love these models, Brett!

thanks guys, Having fun with mater at least. the King, Chick Hicks, Filmore and the Sarge, Sally, Ramone and The Snot rod and lastly but not the least Lghtning are the cars I already have to build.

Lightning is based on a c6 vette with a lot of generic nascar stylings thrown in from what I've found out so thats what I'm basing him on. If I can find what I need at a reasonable price I'll happily do any of the others but 11of the cast from what I have so far isnt too bad. ANYHOW bit of color thrown about today
