      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Abandoned Road Boss
    Hey Guys, This is a commission build for a 60th birthday present,
    I'm not one for building stuff to part with, I get too attached to them.
    Any how I knocked this one up in about 5 days, but a few very late nights.
    it's the AMT White Road Boss, ultra basic kit, with super ultra basic instructions.
    a few parts did not make the cut, so they fell off my bench into the bin.
    I hope you like!

    Welcome Dave, This place is massive, and lots of great stuff too.
    I reckon if we get the word out to more of us Aussies, we can over run this site. Haha

    I have no plans at the moment, When I get the urge to build another one I might pull it apart and mould it.
    Thanks for watching.

    Thanks Guys. Will get more pics up soon as this is coming together real fast now.
    Hey Tom, That is pretty funny. this must happen everywhere.
    I have a mate over here who does military models. he has to be real carefull not to get shot when taking photos and measurements.
    G'day Ben, You didn't tell me you were on here too!

    and some more. I posted all of the photos and the story in one post that I put together.
    But it didn't show up. hopefully it is not floating around this forum somewhere.

    Here are a couple more pics. This was the first tray that I made for it. but it was too short.
    The bull bar was made from Evergreen plastic rod.

    Landcruiser Trayback
    Hi all, I started this about 5 years ago. it was meant to be a long term build.
    other builds were taking preference over it. Two years went past with out touching it.
    But now I'm full steam on it to get it finished for a model comp in June.

    Anyhow the story is that no one has done a Tojo ute in 1:25 scale.
    so I thought I'd give it a bash!
    I have never made any car completely out of plastic card. so this could be interesting.

    a 75 series ute was parked out front of work , so I snuck a few measurements
    before the owner came back. funny thing is he was standing behind me watching what I
    was doing. when I explained he asked if he could hold the end of the tape measure for me. phew!!!

    Hope you like

    Very sad, what a great man he was. I had the steering wheel from his Bathurst Torana in my office for a while.
    My boss bought it at Sir Jacks 80th Birthday Charity function/auction.
