    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Very impressive building with that engine. One of the best I've seen so far. As you make it better all the time, I give you a hint... the blades of the fan look too heavy and thick, when you compare it to the other cool parts you have made. Keep up the good work! This GT-R will look so cooooool when finished.

    Buick Electra Wagon 1986
    There is a build topic of this wagon in the Workbench area, if you want to check it out. This was a Buick GNX originally, which I converted into this full size Buick wagon. Lots of it is scratch built and some parts are picked up from the parts box. No super shiny colour on the body, as I want it to look like a year round daily driver from my country, Finland. 
    Comments are welcome as always, thanks!

    Great! You got the big old wagon finished first. I was just getting there on the workbench. Oh well maybe there is still room for another 80's Buick wagon. I'm converting my wagon from a Buick GNX body. Your wagon looks sweet, is it 1:25 scale? Anything under the hood? The wood on the side looks good, how did you do it? Also those Buick wheels are wonderful, care to give a hint where they came from?

    Thanks again! Hehehe the 80 sticker is usless, as this wagon has the original soft back seat. If I take it away and put the foldable hard bench instead, that yellow label should appear to the rear bumper. I think this wagon will be finished in the near future, and I' ll put the final pics under the glass.

    Thanks Eric and others too! My phone is pulling my leg. I could not insert the text in a normal way. But here we have a photo of the engine bay. Im trying to put something extra in there, as these 80's vehicles are full of hoses and electric wires and stuff. The engine is somewhere down there.

    One can almost smell the dusty odor inside that beater. Very well done. I read over and over the explaining of your method how you do this kind of interior. Very interesting indeed. Good work!

    What a mean machine! Extra points for opening the grill. Nice color and cool stance with those wheels.

    Absolutely fabulous. I cant see anything, that needs to be built better on this Dodge. Oh well if there was the engine under the hood, but this is just great as it is.

    I have now read the whole topic through, and all I can say is WOW! I didnt know that someone could build this kind of project. I really really hope you can finish this magnificent model some day. Your building is an inspiration to many of us.
