I'm Rossa156,

I build 1/24-1/25 scale road racing cars like F1, F5000, TransAm and CanAm. I'm stuck in the 1960-1970s and build mostly cars from this amazing time period. At the moment I'm working on a scratch-bash of the Ferrari Indy Project 637 of 1987. My version will be as races, but the car never did race in CART. I've been building models for 60 years...began with airplanes, went to ships, and have focused on formula cars for the past 30+ years. I'm known for scratch-bashing Hong Kong toys and slot car bodies into static models. I had one of my caars, a McLaren M19C F1 photographed at the SoCal NNL this past May and hoped to see it in the magazine, but the coverage didn't happen I guess. I'm here to "steal ideas"!

I've seen your work "elsewhere". and we could stand to "steal" a few ideas from you, if I'm any judge. Welcome! Steal away! And please share some of your conversions with us...
