    Thanx for reminding me...I did build the '53 Corvette, many many years ago.

    Nice diorama Kurt 
    Wayne Carinni would "wet himself" if he stumbled on this in full scale!

    Toleman TG183B - Ayrton Senna's 1st F1 Ride
    This is a 1/20th scale resin model of the Toleman TG183B produced by ClubM. I built the car to represent the car as it was raced by Ayrton Senna during the 1984 Grand Prix Season. This car was Ayrton's first F1 ride. He drove this car in the first three races and DNQ'ed on the fourth race. The TG183 was replaced by the TG184 for the 5th race.
    This is a fairly old kit and a few of the resin parts were "warped"...tried to get them straight.
    Paint is MM Classic White, Tamiya TS-15 Blue and Humbrol Italian Red #220.









    thanx for lookin'

    Curtis Turner's 1956 Ford - NASCAR
    This is another build of a Curtis Turner race car. I decided awhile back to build models of cars Curtis Turner raced. No other reason than the fact he has a cool first name I can relate to. I think this is the 4th or 5th Curtis Turner model I've built. This a model of the 1956 Ford he raced during the 1956 NASCAR Season. He started 13 races, winning at Darlington and 4 more races with top 10 finishes.
    Paint is MM Classic White and ScaleFinishes Ford M Regency Purple. Decals are from Gofer Racing.










    Thanx for lookin'

    Ferrari 340/375MM - '54 Carrera Panamericana
    Another Mexican Road Racer...this will be my 4th model of a car which raced in the Carrera Panamericana.
    This is the Ferrari 340/375MM Spider Phil Hill and Richie Ginther drove in the 1954 Carrara Panamericana.
    They finished second in their class. 
    It is a 1/24th scale resin model produced by FPP Modelos.

    Hey Buddy, the wheels are fantastic...'bout time you addressed your wire wheels properly.
    They do get more challenging as you reduce the scale!
    Anyways the bike is looking' great and looking forward to seeing it in Salt Lake...cuz I know you will have it done by then.
    dang...you probably have it done already

    I love the current photo of your dad with the bike.
    nice to see the bike is still around, does make building a model of a lot easier.
    should be fun watching ya build this monster.
    c'ya in Salt lake 
  12. curt raitz added a post in a topic Would you be interested in building and donated a model to a tourist attraction that has been in a US for over 80 years?   

    So Vinnie
    1/25th is the scale you are looking for?
    I'm definitely interested in building a couple of models for your display.
    Now I've got a place to send those "slump-buster" builds I occasionally do.
