    Wow, thanks for the responses guys. I cant find the exact model, but it does seem to be a speeder.

    I would love to get it and build a garden in/around it. If only I were in Maine. Thanks again guys!

    Yeah I was thinking a tractor maybe but then when I saw how wide it was I think maybe some other kind of construction vehicle

    Thanks for the good words guys.

    Here are some shots I took today of the engine and interior. I didn't glue down the roof for the purpose of viewing the interior.

    I was gonna make a roof rack, and still probably will. I made the wood for it, and bent some wire, but haven't put it together yet. So I decided to throw it in the back, as if the owner just picked up the materials for the project.

    I did the carpet with embossing powder. The headliner is done also.

    First Model - Revell Mini Cooper (photo update)
    Hey guys,

    My names John. I've been spending a lot of time on here for the past 2 months learning everything I can, but haven't posted until now.

    I used to make models when i was younger, but would really just glue them together and never really paint anything. So i don't count them, plus, I was about 12.

    A couple months ago, for whatever reason, I decided I would get into modeling. So I found this site, did some research, and decided to get the Revell mk1 Mini, as its a car I always wished I could have, even though I'm 6'4".

    Heres a few pictures of the original layout of parts on my probably unconventional work desk haha. Its a little cramped but I prefer to be surrounded by cool stuff.

    IMG_8444 by John Burdumy, on Flickr My idea with this car was to make something that I would actually own, rather than a pristine, restored car. The weathering was a bit of an experiment, but Im super happy with the outcome.

    I've gotta thanks Dr. Cranky for all of his videos and posts. I learned a ton from him, as well as many other guys on here.

    So heres some shots I took today as the sun went down. I'll get some engine and interior photos soon.

    Thanks in advance for any c&c!
