    Wow, there's quite a bit more out there than I expected. Thanks for the info, guys!

    I never realized that, I'll have to keep an eye out for those.

    Wow, that site has some cool bikes on it. I'd love to get that Indiana Jones bike in my collection!

    1/24 motorcycles?
    Hey guys, I got out of the model building scene for a while, mostly due to lack of time to do them. I still have plans to finish my "Beater Bel Air" '57 gasser and the powderpuff pink "Mary Kay" Shelby convertible models that I started threads on here, but for now, I've resorted to collecting 1/24 die casts. So far, I've bough mostly the cheapo Motormax $10 Wal Mart models but they do make great shelf pieces and I hope to eventually do a little bit of touching up and customization on some of them.

    Interesting bit of trivia: I got my hands on the Motormax 1/24 1969 Ford F100 and after staring at it and admiring it in my collection for a couple weeks, I went out and bought an actual 1:1 1969 Ford Pickup! (it looks nowhere near as nice as the model, though lol)

    But anyways, back to why I started this thread. I really like the 1/24 scale since it's a great size for displaying. I'd like to expand my collection to motorcycles, too, though. I've found all sorts of 1/12 scale bikes, but I'd love to find some 1/24 bikes to mingle in with my car display. So far, I've found that Maisto makes a few 1/24 Harley Davidson bikes, but I'd really prefer dirtbikes and/or sport bikes. Anyone know of where I could find some bike models like that in that scale?

    Yeah, some quick research proved I was completely wrong, the ZR-1 and Callaway wheels look completely different. It'd been a while since I've seen a C4 Callaway Sledgehammer, I guess lol

    Too cool, man! That thing looks absolutely killer. Actually looks like an actual 1:1 Malibu I've got my eyes on in my area that's sitting on a lifted K5 Blazer chassis.

    Wheels look like early Calloway Vette wheels, correct? Maybe not. Either way, sharp looking truck!

    Anyone build one of these Corvettes?
    It's the Revell Penske Racing 'Vette. Looks like it could be a fun build, wondering if anyone had any experience with it.

    Mine turned out pretty bad, but it was my first try lol. I think I can fix it with some trimming and filing. It's amazing what you can do with a dremel tool, though. I didn't have mine yet when I chopped the top, but I did have it when I sectioned the body.

    Looks good! I bought that kit with plans to build it up but never did. I ended up snagging a bunch of parts from it for the Gasser Bel Air I'm building. I did end up chopping and sectioning the factory cab when I was bored one time lol

    I can dig it! I'm going to try a similar technique, although my rust is already in rust form. I grabbed a handful of rusty metal flakes out of my '73 Maverick's quarter panel and ground it up lol
