"I made a trip out to Dean Milano's museum after seeing what seemed like years of his ad in the model mags. We live in cedar rapids, iowa (three hours from the museum). "

Hey, I remember the day you made that trip from Iowa. It was great meeting you and nice to know that one of the few who visited still remembers.

When I retire in a year and a half or so (I hope!!)...one of my projects is to open a model museum (Worlds in Miniature). Nothing real fancy, just a place to have the monthly club meetings, a research area, some good CD of contests/shows and a great bunch of models for people to look at (free of charge). I think it would be a great place for model collections to end up instead of the dump!!!!

Hey Robert- Sounds like a great idea, as long as you're aware of the fact that it will consistently lose money and very few people will be interested in it.

My museum lasted 3 years. I had a great time, met lots of wonderful people and have no regrets. One of the most fun things I ever did.

Is this for real or just a cruel hoax? I've been wanting a '61 Starliner for ages, and the '62 Sunliner would be icing on the cake. Please tell me this is real.

I just finished up an original '61 Starliner kit I bought back in 1975. Rescued it from a badly painted, customized built-up.

I tried to post a picture of it, but I'm not sure if it worked. Hmmmm.

That's even tougher to answer than the "what's your favorite car of all time?" question.
There are so many I fear I may leave many important names out but let's see: Narrowing down to only 4 would not be fair, so I will take the liberty of mentioning more than 4. Actually, even separating them in categories.

Art Anderson, Felice Ferriello, Dean Milano, Brian Fishburn, Ken Krawiec, Bob Downie: Great builders, great company and always welcome me and make me feel at home whenever we meet.


Hey, I actually got mentioned over here. Pretty cool!

So what am I doing hanging out over at Spotlight Hobbies for?

BTW, my earliest model car hero was a fellow named Olaf Wahl. There have been many more since then.
