1:1 diorama in General Automotive Talk (Trucks and Cars) Posted September 8, 2008 haha! i guess i sounded too stern in my post....i hope everyone enjoyed the pics though. i spent a couple hours moving stuff around , could not find some tools to put in there. i ran out of room for models , but it was fun! i was born in 1974, and have always been jealous of them days. i grew up around a lot of older guys and was "sort of" raised with this stuff. to think of how simple things were compared to today.....modeling back then was only in your home between you and maybe a couple friends. today thousands of people see your models if you are like us on the internet , it's just not the same at all. not trying to depress anyone LOL.... sometimes i think of shutting my computer off, stop going to shows and put my current build on the kitchen table to be closer to my family.....like it was when i was a kid. i used to build on a tv tray or at the kitchen table and my parents or anyone who came over was right there with me. ahh memories... Right on, Bob! At our old house, I had a table behind the couch where I built. Family and I could watch TV while I built, (my wife built also) and little daughters were fascinated with small versions of hot rods, pickups, and Mild Customs that they actually rode in. (we were modelling our own cars as well as friends' cars I worked on) In this house, I have a whole hobby shop! But it's off the living room, and exiled from the family room. Our girls are grown, and my wife and I are working more on her BMW Coupe and my '27 T Roadster. (1:1 scale!) Really enjoyed your pics, Bob. Comfortable surroundings!
