  1. Let's see your geegaws!

    Mark, next time yer on yer way to N Carolina , stop in my place as I'm near the border. I scratch build sooooo much of this stuff when I'm doing a service station . The trick is to break down an object into it's most basic form and work from there ..... EVERYTHING seen here was scratch built ....
  2. I combined the Running boards and running gear to make a completely stock 1932 Ford 5 window .
  3. What would YOU like to see as a model

    I'll keep it short & to the point . Station wagons from the 60's , preferably Pontiacs, & Oldsmobiles , Mercurys and Dodges MEDIUM DUTY Trucks , 1958-1980
  4. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!

  5. 1st - Texaco near Charleston West Virginia 2nd - Texaco with windmill on roof near Omaha Nebraska 3rd - Texaco - built in Pennsacola Florida
  6. Yes, I do Chris ! The Calpet station was 9th & Olive - Seattle Washington Gilmore Rimsdale & Avondale Los Angles Richfield - NAPA Valley California Shell- Alabama
  7. I built this one from the AMT Diamond in the Rough kit when it was released in the middle 1980's . It was going to have been a part of a Service station diorama that I never completed . Because of it's "Period " custom parts , I chose to do it as a mild custom about 1963 . That should explain the striped "Rolled and Pleated " interior . Readers who are Henry Gregor Felson's automotive books will recall the 1940 Ford in a couple of his books
  8. Terrible Box Art

    OK, as a designer and artist , I feel as though AMT went on the Cheap after 1968 . I'm comparing a 1960 SMP distributed by AMT to 1968 AMT box art . To me the 1968 Box Art was AMT's last decent art . After that , the type faces , the photographs , all of it has left me flat .........
  9. Your thoughts on "Contest Themes"

    I've seen Mustang, Box Art , Tri five Chevrolet , too many more to list . I don't build for theme contests as I'm too busy doing commercial work . I enjoy photographing many of the entries though ....
  10. AMT 1950 Ford Showboat

    Bob , yes , most AMT kits of this era had the wire axles .......
  11. AMT boat kit

    Both of these Boat conversions are wonderful folks !!!!!!!
  12. 1960 Mercury Comet Restoration

    I always love seeing these Annuals done up right !
  13. Site Update Complete

  14. 41 Chevy

    I can see how it became a favorite !
  15. When I saw your "Tipper " , I was reminded of the company ! I built this company's Tank truck back in the very early 1990's as a display for a Hobby shop. I never saw another one of these until now . VERY WELL DONE JOB on something a lot of modelers wouldn't touch being as it's not plastic .....
