ChiefInspector added a topic in On The WorkbenchKoenig Specials CountachMy first build in quite some time. Forgot where I came across it, but fell in love almost immediately. My only disappointment is it does not have a drive train. It has the space and opening hood so I am looking for parts to fix that. May not do the Lambo engine, maybe a V6 or V8 with some monster turbos. Maybe an AMG V12 with some turbos. But I've got time to decide.
Current progerss: 15 minutes of work. 2 weeks ago. It will be sloooooooow
Not sure what color it will be, maybe a dark purple with a tinted wet look clear. Maybe a dark tan and black interior. But that may change, again.

ChiefInspector added a topic in Welcome! Introduce YourselfFrom the mediocre state of KentuckyNot originally from Kentucky, but ended up here working for Mercedes-Benz. I am the lead Smart car tech, and dabble in Sprinter vans, plus I do a bit of gunsmithing for myself. I started modelling at the age of 3. Good memories for the last 27 years. I got out of it for awhile when a fire decimated my apartment in Tennessee, lost everything, and a spot of bad health for the final kick in the teeth. But now I am slowly getting back into it. I enjoy the less mainstream and more difficult kits. I have a small collection I need to hit hard. Finding time is always troublesome. I primarily stick the the 1:24 and 1:25 scale for the ease of storage. Most of my builds are out of the box, however I am starting to see the fun, enjoyment, and shear terror of a full custom build, and may look into it with one of my more common kits.
Oh yeah, the name, ChiefInspector. Comes from my favorite scene from the movie Hot Fuzz
