  1. Hello All, My Dad and I will be in Salt Lake City for a few days and was wondering if there was any good - "Real" Hobby Shops worth visiting ? Preferably with good selection of all car and truck kits, and some foreign as well as good stock of supplies - paint - tools etc.... Any suggestions appreciated, Thanks, Felix
  2. Very nice ! Like the choice of color, and the foiling looks great !
  3. Actually 1 case is for my Dad, so I'm limited to just 1 !
  4. Thanks Tim, I thought so but just wanted confirmation before I ordered 2 cases !! Lots of building to do in the next 6 years !
  5. Great news regarding the reissue of this kit - Can someone please confirm for me that this re-issue will have the small day cab window, and not the altered larger window for the sleeper ? Couldn't tell from the test shots which window it is 100%.
  6. Thanks All, It was a fun project, I hope to do many more over time, with a larger diorama with a few buildings, so that way I can photograph via landscape, instead of portrait. Maybe also one featuring my 1/24 built models as well, it would be nice to be able to turn the front wheels ! This short was more of a test to see how difficult it would be, and it wasn't bad, it took about 300 images, and I edited / stitched them together on a video editing program which allows sound to be edited in. The one tricky thing is to remember all the moving objects in view, where they are headed, and to always make sure to move them before each photo is taken, otherwise you find that you forgot to move something and it makes the motion jerky or odd It took about 2-3 hours for the complete project beginning to end.

  7. Hi everyone, Thought I would post a video of my latest project, a 1/43 diorama of a French café street scene set in the 60's, I decided to have a bit of fun and do a stop motion animation video for youtube. All models featured are 1/43 diecast, however I do have several 1/43 Heller French kits to build that will be displayed in future to complete the dio. Cheers, Felix
  8. For Me ~ it's like a Time Machine I'm fascinated with the past, particularly 1890s to 1970s. I Love Cars, Trucks, Planes, Trains, yep pretty much anything from those years, and being born in 1984, gives me no personal memories to re-live in my mind from that era. I'm very partial to the classic road races of Italy - Mille Miglia & Targa Florio, also Carrera Panamericana, something about driving over long distances over harsh conditions just gets to me - adventure I guess. Also like those classic Grand Prix racers ! I have my favorites - as my screen name suggests ! But I do enjoy almost all cars from all makes, from those years. Today cars all look like trash cans with very few exceptions. Sadly I don't have a 1:1 DeLorean Time Machine (my 1/24 will arrive in the mail on Monday ) so the next best thing is creating a 3D replica, something real and not on a computer screen ! I enjoy the challenge of the build and improving my skills, and I also really enjoy displaying my collection and building small diorama scenes for the models It is an escape from the depressing state of the world which I find totally relaxing and fulfilling.
  9. Awesome collection of photos ~ Thanks so much for sharing ! The "Car Parking Tower" is fascinating , don't like its chances in an earthquake - although maybe it would be the only thing left standing ! Being only 29 I can only dream of days when service stations were like this. I still laugh when I watch the Three Stooges short that features them working in a station, always shouting ~ Super Service Super Service !
  10. A Beauty ! The paint job is superb ! Got to love those Alfas !
  11. Hi Everyone, Last September I took a brief vacation to British Columbia and discovered some nice old trucks along the way, so took some photos / video and made up a youtube video of my finds. Mostly construction / excavation dump trucks, but also spotted an Autocar ! Haven't gotten around to building any trucks lately, but hope to get to a few this year. Hope you enjoy and maybe a little inspiration for a future build, Felix
  12. Hello Everyone ! Just put together a collection of photos / videos of the remaining cars in the Harrah Collection - otherwise known as the National Auto Museum, in Reno. From a Trip in 2010. As my Dad says, its only a fraction of what the collection use to have, but it still is a very nice display with some cool pieces, one of my favorites being the 1908 Thomas Flyer, and a 1920s Peugeot bebe 6 cv. Thanks, Felix
  13. Hi All, Second time attending NNL West, '12 the first. I wish to thank everyone involved for putting on a Fantastic show ! It really is an amazingly fun event to attend, and so many fantastic models on display. Its now one of the highlights of the year for me, and the music is great too ! My Dad and I displayed a couple models this year, but I hope to have some Prancing horses for 2014 ! I made up a short (35min) slideshow video for youtube, has some video but mostly photos. No audio track so that way you can play the music you like. I tried to get a photo of every model at the show, Really Really looking forward to next years already ! http://youtu.be/WmxVqKOuOls
