with the weather killing our work, boss took on a job 700 miles away. SURE IS GOOD TO BE BACK HOME!
finally solved my atv problem. my Hot Wheels plan did not pan out, too small, but wife was in Seattle a few days ago & found these New Rays, only had 2 styles though. i think their 1/30something scale, but they will work.
mine & wife's quads are black & hers has a 2-up seat. son's atv is red & white & has a whip flag.
tried to make them resemble ours somewhat, even though not our style of quads or brands. also finally after a yr or so, got some cab clearance lites for the crew
my pt boat turn cartopper boat did not pan out either. i would have had to section about 1/2" longwise to narrow it down, which i was going to do untill my 9 yr old son who just built his first glue together last month, talked me out of it-he's really starting to take a interest in models despite his video games & quad competeing for his attention-hope for the hobby!
he's built quite a few snap togethers, the bearcat was his first ever glue together, then my pt boat-i notice a huge improvement in just 1 model, much less a GLUE bomb & his flash removal (still needing improvement) is much better. as soon as he finishes up the last few pieces, i'm going to introduce him to spray painting instead of brush. woo-hoo!
(and you can not tell a kid not all military equipment was camaflouged!)
so for a car topper boat i found this for $14. size is perfect, 6 3/4" long & 2 1/4" wide. son already has plans of taking the motor & sticking it on his pt boat
