    lol yes, they are hard to find one thats not rusted and falling apart on its own.... ugh plus the one rusty 3door was like 1600, i laughed hard at them.



    and in the tuner world is what im kinda subject relative, i like tuners more then classics and muscles...... or that is where im kinda shooting at. and its not all called hellaflush, there is many many other names for it now. hellaflush is just more popular, plus they mostly show luxury sedans. and yes it would wear out the inside quicker, but its all about the look. im not lying if i could have my car up like i posted, i would drive it like that daily, thats just me.

    alright, kinda took a break from the model scene, since i kinda dont have the extra room to build one, even those i did finish a '92 honda civic coupe, with some body work, mix of integra type-r grey rims and stock oem chrome s2000 rims, lol. s2000 steering wheel, and such..... not perfect at all, because of my limited build space..... witch is none.... the whole front suspension is glued in white elmers glue for an easy tear down and rebuilt when i feel suited...... that was difficult on its own...

    but mostly i have been working and playing with FL Studios 10 XXL producer (aka: frooty loops) music making program, so im making my own music and stuff.

    i understand the copyrights. thank you guys. um, if there is all this copy rights on everything, then what makes not to say all the research and pics we all gathered to build a model is wrong? then how would we be able to build exact stock replicas unless we each person can takes our own pics when we see them, but how often do we all encounter cars like a veyron, or a nismo r34 gtr z-tune, or one of the shelby daytona coupes?

    i was just curious about sharing the information since some times we cant find stuff like this anymore. and i thought it would benefit our kind of community and others interested in old books, and such, ect.

    i cant post a scan of the cover, BUT please REMEMBER these are local library books, so they will have the markings and alot of wear and tear.......... give me a day or two, and witch section should i post t he covers?

    thank you everyone.

    Stance......
    i know there is different ways about doing this, but has anyone ever built a model with stance? I.E. camber, slammed, ect. EVERYTHING stance style like the new trend in the tuner world?


    2 examples below of stance, there is many different forms on different cars........

    sharing scans of books........
    hey guys, long time no chat. been absent for awhile and now im back. well let me get to the point...


    i checked out a few model car building books from the library tring to find some extra tips and stuff, and i was wondering would i get into trouble if i scaned the books and posted them here for other ppl to enjoy? i going to scan them for my personal use, but i wasnt sure about sharing them. 2 of the books are old.... like really old by DENNIS DOTY, and another book too. i know alot of ppl have read them and ect. but for those who havent or anyone else that wants some extra referance materials, i wasnt sure. any answers would be greatly welcomed!


    thank you, and ill post pics of my finished civic coupe sometime soon....... lol
