    Models of the so called land yachts of the seventies
    Good morning
    Can You guys give some kind of a picture of which models that have been made of these outrageous but simply beautiful cars?
    Like the fuselage inspired Chryslers and huge Fords... just anything fullsize really...
    I would love to build models of these dinosaurs

    A normal day in Finland during the seventies
    Good morning from a long time reader first time poster.
    First let me say A BIG THANK YOU to all You guys out here. You have provided me with much (needed) ideas and inspiration to get back to this hobby. When I was a child I used to build cars and planes with my father and when I became a PROUD father of two sons I took up building cars with them. 
    Now after a few years break I took up building again. I've got a nice little stash saved from earlier and I'm getting around building them again.
    The first project is a Mini made by Tamiya built into a winter landscape much like a normal Finnish winters day. The registration plates are not 100% correct but it gives You an idea of what they looked like. The blockwarmer was/is used in almost every car during the wintertime in Finland.
    I should have taken the pictures before gluing the displaycase shut.
    Don't eat the yellow snow!
    Thank You for watching
