Ok Here is the official thread for the TV/Movie Vehicle Contest build.
Lets start off with some rules.
Contest Starts Today, Sunday, December 12, 2010 Contest Ends Sunday, June 12 2011
Only 2 Vehicles can be entered by one person. All vehicles cannot be prebuilt, mush be built for this contest.(if you use an existing kit it mush be completely disassembled)
The Vehicle must be a match to a vehicle one would see on tv, whether in a movie or tv show.
When you submit your entries, please try to show a screen shot of what you are building. (Example: If you are say building a car after it gets into a wreck try to show a screen shot of that scene.)
You must post pics of your progress from start to finish!!
Ok now for the rest............. When The contest is over I will start a poll for everyone to vote for their favorite build, we will let the voting go for a couple weeks. The winner will get a 1 year subscription to Model Cars Magazine:)

I got this idea brewing, I know I have not been here long but I got an idea and just wanted to pass it by everyone.
If there is enough interest we could start this one up soon.
Here is my idea......
A movie automobile community build/contest
The builds would have to be as close as possible to any vehicle that starred in a movie, It don't matter if its showroom excellent or a piece of junk, as long as it was in a movie. I am thinking to limit this one to either cars, vans, suvs, and pickups.
It would also be cool to add a screenshot of your build so everyone knows what you would be shooting for.
Now for the contest part, If this is ok with the admin and everyone else, At the end date of the build I would start another poll thread showing all the vehicles completed and all the people on here can vote for their favorite. For the winner I will buy a 1 year subscription to Model Cars Magazine( heck I dont even have one yet lol).
So if this is ok with everyone and there is enough intrest I will start this one soon.
This is my first build in about 13 years. I figured being a truck driver I better do a truck!!
I have been working on it a few days now and the way the body attached to the frame, I figured I had to do some body work so I did the interior and put that in then attached the cab to the frame. I then added a little filler and primed and painted it.
The paint I used is High Heat Engine paint, It comes in a spray can. I do not yet have an airbrush so this was the only route I could go to get the paint color I wanted.
I do not know anything about painting to get good results. I was thinking of doing a clear coat but do not know the process with sanding and polishing.
This is pretty much my dream truck, I am going to try to find a nice headache rack for it and a flatbed trailer.
