    Track day special
    Hi all I know this is a diecast but I did this as a break from the plastic. It started life as a rally escort cosworth


    I then stripped it repainted it matt black redone the interior flocked the floor removed the passenger light to make airflow easier for the engine. And here she is now ready for a blast around the track at the weekend

    Seeing as how everybody is posting why they got in to the game. Here's my story. I told u why I build. I've only been building for 2 years. I've always liked cars as far back as I can remember my most vivid memory is of me and my mate playing with what I think must of been about 1/12 or 1/16 general lee on my neighbours well. We would make jumps for it. It was diecast and man that got some abuse lol. So when I got a job (at 15) I bought a cheap mini (old style) and we used to rag it round the farmers field. It was just 5 minute walk away. So when I turned 17 passed my driving test. Bought a road legal car. And from then the cars have just come and gone 35 in total and I'm 32 years old. My favourite car being a Tuscan grey Renault 5 gt turbo. (not to be confused with a turbo 2) it was a machine 1.4 turbo'd engine, which the previous owner had spent a small fortune on. This car was amazing it was small but extremely fast. It would keep up with a scooby wrx. The car was my pride and joy. But it came to a sad end. After only owning the car for 5 days, some twat in a 4x4 nailed right into me. Luckily the car was fitted with full harness seat belts. I was unhurt but my pride and joy written off. fast forward ten years and I'm hoping I can recreate my pride and joy in either a model kit. Or simply modify a diecast.
    I only got into models by chance as I used to be an rc man. And while I was on the rc forums I spotted this forum and thought I'd pop In for s look. Seen some awesome cars and thought I'd give it a bash. That was 2 years ago in November, look now I sold all my rc stuff, converted my tool shed in to a "man cave" and have a loft full of unbuilt kits. So my thanks goes out to gregg for having this site. I wouldn't have this amazing hobby without spotting this place. And thanks also for the builders like rommell who not only build amazing models. But also help out the noobies like me

    This is my bench I know it's Tuesday but it's been like this over the weekend from left to right
    Volvo globetrotter I broke while taking it apart, then it's a scania "cool fruits" cab dark blue, then a scania ?????? Light blue. In the corner is a merc recovery truck, then a eddie stobbart. All in need of restoration. Then there's my 1/18 escort cosworth. And above on the shelf what's that more trucks in need of TLC lol I'm going to call it Craigs truck stop haha .

    Hi folks did a bit more on this here's a wee mock up how it is


    Here's what I started with


    I've got the interior back out I'm planning on painting the seat belts pink and embossing powder on the floor. And then adding few more bits of detail painting but this is just a side project when ive got a spare few minutes. Any comments welcome

    Stripping glue bombs????
    Hi guys I've acquired about 15 built up truck and trailers. The trucks are all complete as far as i know and all have instructions, the trailers are in good order. The question I got is for the trucks themselves, I want to strip them and rebuild them my way. What is the best way to do that? Cheers Craig ps here's a pic of the units

  13. cazxr2 added a post in a topic Why Do We Build Models???   

    I build because I love ll things about cars. When I was younger I would "pimp" up my 1:1 cars. But now I have more sence. (a little mire sence) and less cash. I build models. I build them how I want them. Not what the box says. But what I say. I've only been building models for a few years now. Never had the space we used to live in a 1 bed flat. Now I have my own "MAN CAVE" and i love to see a model transform from plastic in a box to a car on the shelf. I think since joining this group on here I have improved my Skills.
    Here's my first model built in November 09







    And this one if my more recent. I owe all u guys on here a big thanks. Especially diymirage for all the help he's giving me over the last couple of years
