    WHEW! been a while
    WOW! how time flies. i didn't realize how long it's been since posting anything. i have been so busy lately doing models for customers from the car shows working my regular job and trying to fit 100lbs of potatoes in a 50lb bag in my shed that all of my time has been taken up by that. when i am done i am just to bushed to play on the computer for more than a few minutes at a time. the holiday gave me a little break so here i am. here is one of the projects i did for a guy few months ago. he had given me the model that he had cut the grill and a few other parts making it a little harder to do. but here it is. 1971 cuda in 1/18 he wanted it plum purple with a white interior it was lime green with a black interior when i got it. hope some like it. i will post a couple more in other posts

  7. 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.
