    Metal Replica Cars
    I know this forum doesn't deal with a lot of metal model cars, but does anyone have any insight on these or what they're worth?

    The truck says it's a 1928.
    The one in the middle actually plays music when you crank the spare tire.

    Appreciate any help.

    2003+ Corvette Model
    Does anyone make a 2003+ Corvette model in 1/8 scale? I've found them in smaller scales, but not in a large scale.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys for the reply.. it all helps. Finding more information every search.

    I'm thinking of using graphing paper to lay down under the frame to help make a chassis jig... what is the best to attach the graphing paper to so I can attach nail wood into for the jig? I'm guessing a piece of wood would work, but I'm seeing some nice looking platforms other people have used in the past but unsure what material it is?

    Thanks again

    From what I can see, the styrene companies are located overseas. 10" rods wouldn't be to bad the more I think about it.. chances are slim I would use a full rod anyways.

    I'm thinking the plastic will be easier to work with? Not to mention a lot cheaper? Correct me if I'm wrong.. I would love to do it with brass tubing, but cost and ease are my primary concerns.

    Looking at building a Daytona Prototype. Love those cars. Not sure how it'll work out since there are no kits, but I'm going to give it a hell of a shot.

    Couple newbie questions..
    Posted this in the general section, but was recommended to post it in here as well...

    Looked around, used the search functions and found some stuff.. but not everything. Just going to ask them all here to get more opinions..

    I'm looking at building an 1/8 model from scratch. Sounds stupid, I know.. but I'm one of those guys thats just has to go big the first time.

    Going to be using styrene as it appears it will be easier to work with, even though it'll be more flexible. Seems like a lot of people are using 3/16" for the frame, is that a good size? I presume glue is what attaches the rods together.. what kind is the best? Bend by heating up or would I need a pipe bender?

    I'm also trying to find a place that sells the styrene rod in larger sections.. seems on the internet it's 10" or 12". Didn't see any craft stores carry it in my area, haven't searched for hobby shops yet.

    Thanks and looking forward to joining you all..

    Making a car from scratch...
    I am going to attempt to make a 1/4 scale Dodge Viper from scratch... just a few questions though:

    How do you all go about doing the bends in the body work and such?

    What material? I was reading that there is some thin plastic that is good for this stuff, if so, what size and where can I get it?

    Thanks
