  1. Which Model Gave You a Whoopin'?

    Truer words have never been spoken Bill. This hobby teaches a person many things....patience being one of them. A measure of imagination and self confidence is also required ( and rewarded ) when one has to deviate from the instruction sheets when a project goes off the rails due to poor fits, bad sequencing, etc. Thankfully in this era of model building in-depth print articles and forums like these exist to help guide us through difficult builds.
  2. '47 Chevy Fleetmaster

    Looks like a nice clean build. Never tried Rustoleum paint....on a model kit anyways. How did you find it application wise? Much post spray painting work involved?
  3. 1953 Corvette

    Looks pretty nice from where I'm sittin'.
  4. Union models Lola T70

    I picked this up for a song awhile back when Piper Hobby in Chantilly closed. I think it might've been the shop owner...Bill Kimbals kit. He was a sports car enthusiast...loved Corvettes . It had a lot of extra stuff in it...aftermarket. Multi piece body looks like a challenge.

  8. Gundam

    I attended the Old Dominion Open model show and contest put on by the local IPMS chapter in Richmond Va last Saturday the 23rd. Despite really rainy weather attendance was good...close to a 1,000 models entered by almost 300 modelers. Last year there were 25 Gundam models...this year 95...close to 4 times as many. It's a growing thing...bringing in younger modelers to an event thst has been predominantly aging baby boomers.

    Given the level / quality of competition I was fortunate to take 3rd place Trucks and Vans with my Revell Hasegawa "Hippie" bus.
