  1. 2019 Cannonball run ideas

    "VannonBall Run" you gotta love that name! LOL!
  2. Whenever anyone is ready to post their model; I just created a new forum for you designed to just show off the models. Titled Ultimate Weekend Warrior 4X4 - Post Your Builds it can be found here. Reminder: deadline is midnight October 31st, 2018.
  3. Builders who have participated in the 2018 Ultimate Weekend Warrior 4X4 Community Build, this is the place to display your completed / finished models...this forum will then be closed at midnight on October 31, 2018. This forum is where ALL Model Cars Magazine Forum members are invited to peruse the finalists before voting for their favorite in the poll. So remember, how well you present your model is important - good photos go a long way. Please help by keeping this area limited to postings only photos so that it makes it's easier for everyone to just view the models. If you would like to offer feedback / comments to any of the builders, please use the the Ultimate Weekend Warrior 4X4 - Community Build forum here.
  4. 2019 Cannonball run ideas

    Ahhh...forgot the sleeper was done (must be my age catching up w/ me). I'm liking the idea of vans, utes, p/u's, wagons etc...too. Another idea I thought of was "Destination Hollywood" meaning all vehicles must have appeared in a TV show or movie ? Just throwing it out there...
  5. 2019 Cannonball run ideas

    My main idea in one word is "SLEEPER" meaning it looks unsuspecting (stock, minor exterior upgrades, junkers only???) but can complete the "race" in record time! Key factors here would include a quality engine, transmission, drive-train and safety. Something that at least looks roadworthy is a plus so it doesn't catch the eye of every law enforcement officer you pass along the way. LOL I'll probably think of other ideas too.
  6. Unfortunately, due to some health issues (which have given me hand tremors) I will not be able to enter my Blazer since I have made little to no progress on it. I have enjoyed seeing other models so far, and am looking forward to models yet to be posted. Only a few more weeks left!
  7. Brian, I like it! I also think it helped trigger some well needed inspiration for me! (finally) ! Maybe I can get back to the bench now.
  8. This is EXACTLY the stuff I envisioned entering this.
  9. I like this! This is exactly the sort of stuff I envisioned for this Community Build.
  10. I agree on posting in progress pics here. It makes it to follow.
  11. Two more things (Thank you Jantrix for reminding me to include this)... You can enter this CBP at any time up to 48 hours before the end date. This CBP will be limited to one model (entry) per member.
  12. Dug mine out of the stash, last night. Here she is. Found a few tires I might use and threw them in the box already.
  13. I'm starting my build with the AMT Crew Chief Blazer kit.
  14. Although, I expected more interest. This thread will now serve to be the Official Ultimate Weekend Warrior 4X4 - Community Build thread. Now a few words of wisdom... While the goal is to achieve the Ultimate Weekend Warrior 4X4 and get you through your favorite "playgrounds" (mud, sand, rocks etc...); you also have to think of it as a real vehicle that must be street legal (no monster trucks, exhaust through the hood etc..) and capable of driving on a street/road on a daily basis (i.e work) the other 5 days week. It must also be equipped with bumpers, head/tail lights and license plates and those other DOT items. Build time begins immediately and ends @ midnight October 31st, 2018 (Halloween). A few weeks prior to the ending of the event I’ll start a completed builds thread, for posting pics of your builds, followed by another poll/thread for voting. UPDATE...Two more things (Thank you Jantrix for reminding me to include this)... You can enter this CBP at any time up to 48 hours before the end date. This CBP will be limited to one model (entry) per member. Please keep in mind I've never posted/hosted a Community Build so if any of you have ideas or thoughts - please speak up and post it here. Most of all I'm doing this just to have some fun.
  15. I might be in for this, but the questions start arising when you get into things like cans of paint people already own and parts box items...that's where I see this getting difficult to put cost on it.
