    How much are you thinking of selling them for?  Any pictures?
  2. WigWag Workshop added a post in a topic H.O. scale home slot car track   

    Because of this post, I decided to get my Grandson a small battery powered slot car track, to see if he would have any interest in it.  He would not put the controller down, we went through 2 sets of batteries, and it's just a small figure 8 track.  So now, Pappy is going to build a full size HO track in the train room for him.  Thank You for the inspiration.

    That vehicle is awesome! a true "rat-rod", and has far as the lady, Wish I owned a junk yard full of stuff, I think it would be a blast to build a 1:1 franken vehicle lol. I don't judge ones decisions on how they want to look/dress, even if that picture will give me nightmares.

    1977 GMC Pickup Engine Replacement
    Good Day Folks!
    I am currently using the Revell 1977 Pickup kit to make a camper special.  I don't really care for the engine that is included has it lacks detail, so I was wondering what kit or aftermarket engine could I use instead? 
    Thank You in advance for your suggestions,

    These are the builds I like the most, factory stock! No frills, not slammed to the ground,  just a good ol' American Pick-Up Truck.  Outstanding! Thank You for sharing, and the inspiration.

    I am I am... I just tore out my 4 x 8 "trial" layout, it was just a learning experience of what to do, and what not to do.   I tried out all the different techniques, and different products.  My boy turns 18 next year, and will be going into the Military, so I WILL be converting that bedroom into my train room which will be a lot bigger than a 4 x 8 run-around and will be DCC. If he moves back he will move into my current office.  :-)

    The Mid 70's Ford-F150 for a tribute to one of my favorite YouTube Woodworkers.. It's going to be hard to build, being a Chevy guy LOL

    I loved that place when it was Cudahy News and Hobby! Went there at least once a week, got some Swedish Fish from the candy counter, and would walk the isles munching on them.

    My favorite Nascar era, and my favorite car! Outstanding work on these builds. Will be bookmarking this thread for inspiration, has I will plan on build one this year.

  14. WigWag Workshop added a post in a topic What are your model building resolutions for 2015?   

    1) Scratch build display shelves for the Workshop/Office, so I can safely display my completed builds alway from the cats who think they look better on the floor in many pieces.
    2) Work up the courage to start and complete my B-36 Peacemaker, a build dedicated to my pops. 3) Fix the track work on my HO scale model railroad, so I can actually run some trains. -Steven

    Throwing in the towel.. for now
    Good Day Folks!

    Please don't take this has a negative, but I am giving up trying to build "shiny" things for now. No matter how much I try, I just can not complete a shiny build. I have read tons of how-to's, take my time, and take it one step at a time. I always end up, mucking up the finish by the time I am about to complete a build. So I am going to take a step back, and "perfect" my weathering skills
