  1. Very good looking Porsche. Thanks for sharing your photos.
  2. Very well done and a super collection of Grand Sports.
  3. Looks like a very good model of this iconic racer. Thanks for sharing the photos and the link.
  4. I am going to repeat something I have said here before about diecasts. Up until 2018 I only had a couple of diecasts of cars that were not available in plastic kit form. Then for medical reasons I was inflected with tremors which not only forced my retirement but also ended my kit building. It was at this time that I discovered diecasts in 1/24th scale at the drugstore for $9.99 and they were pretty nice and allowed me to continue to enjoy and expand my model car hobby. Diecasts that are available today have come a long way from 10 years ago and some of the older ones can easily be upgraded, especially the wheels and tires. In my case, fortunately, the tremors have lessened and I have learned techniques which have let me return to building models again.
  5. I have been waiting for a Danbury Mint 1953 Studebaker Commander Starliner and finally I found one I could afford and it is a beauty. What an amazing iconic car.
  6. I remember a local doctor wanted a Mercedes 190 SL but Studebaker was doing the US distribution for Mercedes and he had to buy a Studebaker along with it. Actually they made a nice pair. Along For The Ride: The Mercedes-Studebaker connection... (johnstraub.blogspot.com)
  7. Very well done. The 1:1 is at the Simeone Collection in Philly.
  8. Oh those white Corvettes look really good. Nice clean builds with attention to details. Thanks for sharing.
  9. I like white Corvettes and this one looks really good. Thank you for sharing. As far as '53s go the Wix is a nice option too.
