  1. What did you see on the road today?

    Dan, you get to play with great "toys".
  2. My 50's GP & Sports Racing Cars

    Wow! What a fantastic collection. Great to see early sports car racing brought to life in scale form. Cool early open wheel racers too.
  3. MP4-30 Mid Season

    Beautiful build of that McLaren. Cool to see the both of them together showing the evolution over 24 years.
  4. What Irked You Today?

    I agree. All the environmentalists and politicians can think of is taking stuff away. Our federal government is proposing a single use plastics ban. Yet when there is a disaster you see them delivering cases and cases of bottled water. What happens now? We recycle like crazy. Instead of taking away useful products from us, how about going after the people who are dumping plastic in the ocean/lakes. If companies who are responsible for recycling plastic are dumping illegally, go after them, not the little guy. These days people use skip the dishes and Alexa and want self driving cars and the stupid environmentalists think they’ll bring refillable containers to the grocery store? Yeah, right!
  5. McQueen's $1.3m Le Mans Porsche 911S in 1/32, by Arii

    Very cool build and I enjoyed the bit of history provided as well. Job well done, Matt.
  6. Rust Box of Doom Chevy Wagon '57 Drag Week 2018

    You certainly got the feel of the real wagon. Very cool!
  7. Subaru WRX Police Pursuit

    Very cool & different police pursuit vehicle.
  8. Gerald Wingrove has passed away.

    Sad news indeed. He was (at least to some of us) a legend in this hobby. R.I.P. Phyllis and Gerald.
  9. AMT 1929 Ford Model A Roadster

    Great to see a Model A Ford built up in stock format. Job well done.
  10. 1970 Buick GSX

    Great job on the Buick, Ken. Kudos!
  11. 1966 Ford F100

    Real nice job on the new Moebius kit, Chuck. Look forward to your build of the long bed when it comes out.
  12. Mini trucks

    Sorry, my bad. I was told at the Toronto Auto show that they only came as the four door model with the tiny bed. While we're on the topic, I don't understand why they all have to be jacked up like 4X4's even when they are just 2WD. My Courier and B2000 were a great height. Easy to get into and to load stuff into the bed around the same height as my current CRV. I had a heck of a time trying to get into the Ranger at the Auto Show. I get a lot of people want that type of thing but back in the day you had a choice between normal height and nosebleed height (an exaggeration....). I guess despite having owned mini trucks I'm just not a truck guy, at least not by the modern definition of everything having to be bigger and higher.
  13. Mini trucks

    Dan, my point was the new Ranger you can only get in full 4 door cab with a tiny bed. It's like those others you mentioned. It's more SUV than truck. If it was like my old B2000 extra cab with just a couple of jump seats and a larger bed it would be much more useful as a truck.
  14. Mini trucks

    Had a 1981 Ford Courier and a 1986 Mazda B2000. They were great trucks and all I ever needed. The current small trucks are too big and and the new Ford with a 4 door body and a tiny bed is just ridiculous. Not to mention they want as much for them as a big truck. I think they have missed the market but maybe the market is for an SUV with a tiny bed on the back.
  15. Eldora Low 1970 Custom Cadillac

    Wow! Beautiful work, Claude!
