  3. jerseyjunker1 added a post in a topic my book is ready   

    thanks guys!! the book it is basically a table top picture book of some of the models i have done over the years. its nowhere near as nice as Michael Paul Smith's book but for those who like junkyard and barn find vehicles i think you may like it. if anything it will look good sitting in the basket by the toilet. if this book works out OK i have another one planed but that's a long ways off.

    airstream camper
    well i have done what i could on the camper. it will be the new office in the yard. this was a Franklin mint 1/24th scale distressed camper and missing some parts. the awning was totally busted i had to remake a lot of the parts on it. it works good now. although it works i am leaving it wired in the up position. at the shows it may get damaged again. the whole hitch and winch was missing so i remade one one of the propane tanks was missing the top part so i had to make that. i didn't like the blue overhead cabinets so i redid them with wood. it was missing some lenses so i put my own on. it was factory painted a silver gray color i covered the whole camper with aluminum and tried to make it look old and loaded with junkyard parts. the man was one of those cheapo figures that i re positioned painted and gave him a beer and cigarette. hope you like it.
