    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.

  7. 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

    Awesome job on this build. I have a question, is there a tutorial, or a list of materials that were used to build the wall and catch fence? I will be working on a dirt-sprint car soon, and would love to build a diorama for it. I know I can do the dirt track, but not sure how to do the wall and catch fence.

    Agreed, they can't use the ol' "its the economy" excuse anymore. I am amazed how empty the Bristol night race was, a race that use to be sold-out years in advance, and if you wanted a ticket to the race, one was paying double face value of the ticket.

    I was under the impression that the new Nascar bodies were all the same, just different decals on them
  12. WigWag Workshop added a post in a topic Tim McCreadie....2014 Rocket chassis Dirt Late Model build.....   

    It's builds like this, that make me want to throw in the towel.. LOL Seriously though, very inspirational build for sure, amazing details! I look forward to the day, I can achieve works like this. Thank you for sharing, this build.

    That's what I was thinking when I saw this build. Fond memories of these, clearing the way, so I could get to school

    Outstanding, I had a double-take to make sure it was a model! I wish I could afford this kit, it's been on my wish list for some time now.
  15. WigWag Workshop added a post in a topic What do model builders overlook that could improve their models?   

    This is an AWESOME check list! Not saying that everything on the list, would be done on a single build, but adding a few of these on different builds. This post opened my eyes, and has provided some inspiration to try some of these.
