Observations

 Model Swap Meets!

I have been attending and setting up to sell at least once a year sometimes more for several years now. I enjoy getting out and seeing friends and talking to people. The conversations for the most part are model related but often times bridge into other areas, sports, health, food and of course politics. My observations include but are not limited to, 

1. We can be a strange looking group indeed.

2. Some will eat just about anything, almost always leaving something in the beard or on the shirt.

3. We circle the arena like vultures at least four times, just in case we missed something, while keeping watch for that one thing we came for, or the elusive holy grail deal of a life time.

4. My favorite- Vendors are the best! The pros get there early and set up there tables. Then the systematically watch for more vendors to show, like lions at the watering hole, ready to pounce on parts

    and kits before anyone else does. In fact they are so eager to be the first to attack they can't even wait for you to unpack and set up your own table! I have had guys dig through boxes while I retrieve more boxes!

    God forbid one should need to use the bathroom!

 

I'm sure there are many more, so how about it. What quirks or other things would you add to my list?

Your Modeling Plans for 2015

03 January 2015 - 04:27 AM

What are your projects for the up coming year?

I hope to complete these and also a 56 Chevy Long Roof and perhaps the 60 Chevy El Camino...

No particular order and not set in stone, guess we'll see what happens!

"50" Custom 3100

01 January 2015 - 06:45 AM

Thought I'd start the new calender year with a WIP, this the AMT Texaco 3100 pick up kit. So far I've:

Shortened the bed 6 scale inches, smoothed the body and removed all hardware, re-skinned the tailgate, added an Olds front bumper, swapped the headlights and set it on some nice Caddy wheels and white wall tires. The real change will be the chassis, it will have running/rolling gear from a "67" Corvette.
