Before the internet, gathering solid reference material on cars was tough. So, all through the 90s, I kept a scrapbook of everything cool and interesting I ever found in model car magazines.

 

Just discovered it hidden in a box, so I scanned it, and I have a hires PDF (83 MB, via Dropbox link) for anyone who would like to have a copy. Just send a message or comment in this thread.

 

There's tons of awesome ideas, cool models, great reference and good times. Enjoy.

I remember some of those cars from magazines way back then. Those two Matadors may be from my club.  Very cool collages!

Hello everyone

 

Wow, this is awesome to see so many people interested in this! I was about to trash my scrapbook, but then I was like: "Nah, I really need to share this with the modelling community!" It's a shame I never thought to properly credit everyone's fine work back then, and I've forgotten the names of a lot of the amazing builders. There's tons of great stuff from Jairus, Juha, and many, many more.

 

I've sent download links to everyone who's responded so far; please do let me know if the links aren't working. I'll find a way to get your PDFs to you. Thanks!

Terrific treasures.

 

I, too, recognize many of the builds (and builders) and recall the magazine articles. 

 

Neat!

You have one of my builds………  :o 

 

 

I'm flattered! Thank you! Mine is the Black Chrysler Atlantic convertible in the first picture in the second post. And when ever I see it, I laugh thinking about how it came THIS CLOSE to being stepped on a few times.

 

Thanks again. You really made me feel good.  :)

fantastic labor of love.

 

I'd appreciate the file, too, if you're not inundated with others' requests.

 

thanks.
