Yellow Nova Nomad wagon, powered by a Chevy Hemi? Love it!! The answer to a question I hadn't thought to ask!! Posted Image

Thanks Tony Posted Image
Fun that we can imagine anything we want, and then create it. Maybe it wouldn't work in real life, or not be technically correct, or in scale, but plastic isn't real life - IT'S PRETEND Posted Image .

Everyone have a great Sunday - davePosted Image

I agree with jeff on this one very nice build but you should really use pivot hinges on your builds they would compliment your models well. On 1:1 cars the door swings inside of the front fender. If you dont know how to do them I wrote a tutorial here in the forums on "how to make the correct door hinge"

Hey there friend Posted Image
Glad you enjoy doin tutorials.
Here's a little scratch-built 2000 hour project, that has'um swingin' both ways, fronts out, rears in.

Thanks for the offer - dave Posted Image

Somewhere near 80 finished here at the house. Like you jeff, I have others that were sold to collectors - right at 20, and a few that I have given away to friends and relatives.
About 500 kits in my stash.

Anyway, thanks guys for the interest Posted Image .

And Jairus, thanks for posting the "VERY COOL" cycle-toon.

I realize most of you here enjoy auto stuff, and that's primarily why we're all here, me too, so won't post much on this.

I got bored with one car after another, and this seems to have "Refreshed" me, and given me new energy, and has challanged me in new areas of my building. For me, a good thing. Got a few other "Off-the-wall" projects I'd like to attack after this. Seems to kinda broaden my perspective, skills, and enjoyment of plastic.

Thanks for letting me share - dave Posted Image
