    I'll give it 3 hubcaps for Imagination

    The dioramas I do for the Texas and Virginia Historical societies I have done have all involved period photographs . The diorama I am doing for a personal project that will premier at the Lewis Ginter Botanical gardens, Richmond Virginia  this Thanksgiving will have involved HOURS of researching Blue prints and photos taken in the day

    I'll be awaiting the 1948 Ford regardless. I restored one in the early 1990's . I took it from a Street rod back to a respectable Ford V-8 driver 
  4. Eshaver added a post in a topic How do you pick which model you will work on next   

    I'm fairly sure I have covered this story before . i do dioramas . i am currently doing a model of a 1920 Marland oil station built in Richmond Virginia . Now I can fit any 1-24th or 1-25th car to about 1927 into it .

    N carolina used to be a "Hotbed " of well done car contests . i have stopped doing any Virginia shows with the exception of the Automotive Modelers in the fall, Norfolk Virginia

    To relicate stucco in 1-24th, 1-25th, I use the Krylon stone finishes . If te color I want isn't available , just paint over it . Besides this gets the solids in the paint to lay flatter

    Chris , Marty has turned his attention to building a RUNNING , driving copy of the Cadillac Cyclone . He generally comes out of hiding here about April , May as the weather here for Body work is awful now

    Your're turned out way nicer than mine did . I'm even friends with Marty Martino who built the "Clone " out of a 1959 sedan .

    Barnes and Noble here , Richmond Virginia has never carried Model cars Magazine . I have a hard enough time getting them to even order books they don't have on hand  for ,me 
  10. Eshaver added a post in a topic What was your first truck model?   

    Thanks to who ever belongs to this model ! 
     
    My FIRST BIG truck was this , but as a N American tractor . Yes, A M T came out with this in 1965 . I had previously written Budd Anderson a couple of years earlier and asked him why this market wasn't being addressed . He did take the time to write back and thought the same thing . As for LIGHT trucks , uh I guess the AMT 1961 Ford F-100 ...................

    The infrequent publishing schedule is why I have never trusted a subscription to this magazine . The one store who USED to handle your magazine has been out of business a couple of years here . I'd be thrilled to be a subscriber if I knew I was going to see a return . 
  15. Eshaver added a post in a topic What kits did you get for Christmas?   

    Because it's jus my son and I now for the most part , I got to sit on my front porch today , gaze out into the clouds  and reminisce on one HECK of a year ! i got several messages from fans thanking me on my new book and I have been able to reunite with some of my family this year . I don't need more model cars , I need the time to finish the diorama I have planned for Christmas 2016 .
