  1. here's mine this car show dio is part of my muddy flats junkyard. this was at the lead east show 2012.i will show a little more in the diorama forum later
  2. over the summer i built a business card holder for my friend Sal who ownes a speed shop in Ramsey nj. i wanted nothing for it just thought it would look good on his counter.he insisted in having some buisiness cards made up for me so i sent him a picture of the d.m. 51 Studebaker that i junked. here is a picture of the holder i made for him and the cards he sent me the card holder i did for him and the cards he did for me he said he would have 500 cards made up but when they arrived there were 2,500 cards and all glossy. he said he put all the info on the back of the card so it would not interfere with the photo.the picture is much clearer on the actual card. to cool
  3. film from rumble seat w/sound An early "dashcam" style film, showing a trip along Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, California in the mid 1930's. The rear facing camera captures many classic vehicles from the 1920s and 1930s including a Rolls Royce, a tow truck with a vehicle clearly damaged from an accident, and of course many Ford and General Motors vehicles that were so common during this period.
  4. every now and then i will pick one of my older junkers so some of the new guys can see them. this one is a cheapo 39 chevy coupe diecast done a couple of years ago.
  5. i am not a race car fan but super job on a 25cent model. by the way what scale is the goose.lol just kidding.
  6. i guess you can say i took a little hiatus. i have been working on a couple of projects this one is my rendition of the 1957 plymouth belvedere that was buried in a vault in tulsa ok in 1957 and then opened up in 2007. this model is far from done this is just where i am now.this model started out as a franklin mint 1/24th scale 1957 fury had to do some modifications on it. it started out looking like this one. i forgot to take a picture before i started so i took this before picture from ebay of a 43rd scale model of the same car i did. here is a link to the story of the real miss belvedere buried 1957 Plymouth time capsule unveiling, 2007 still got a lot to do but here are some pics of the progress to date. i have removed the antennas and the fender mirrors and changed the side trim from fury to Belvedere. the first picture is a comparison of the real miss belvedere next to little miss Belvedere model. i don't know how to get good interior shots but i tried some anyway.
  7. i look for them to. i make them more scratched and dented than they were when i got 'em. i have also got a few danbury and franklin mint models that were listed as damaged and all they needed was a box and a good cleaning and maybe a small part thats an easy fix. those i don't junk. here is a couple that i recently got.
  8. i like it. this is a good model to modify any way you like. yours looks real neat.
  9. i thought you might like to see the last model i have done to date. i did this diorama for a guy i met at the lead east car show.he wanted the green Packard in the picture that was in my display at the show and also wanted a 1955 chevy barn find to go along with it. i made a small diorama to fit both cars.the chevy is a 1/18 Ertl tilt nose.
  10. i am just starting to come to terms with things.anyways i just want to thank everyone for all of your support in my time of need. i can't begin to tell all of you how much you have helped me get through this.whenever someone here loses someone close or even when someone loses a pet it seems the whole board has lost them to. thanks again to everyone. i have been doing a little junker building and sold a couple on ebay just to pay a few bills off. i wish i could do a little more but it is a little cold in my shed right now. i hope all has been well with everybody and happy holidays Manny
  11. i just want to thank everyone here for all of their prayers.i will never get over this and i am still looking for answers. they say time cures all but in this case i don't buy it.i will be back soon and posting things if not for anything but to just occupy my mind. anyways thanks again Manny

  15. the diner is a combined effort by brian dunning of west coast precision diecast and myself. we got together to do this diner our way with our colors. there are only a few of these diners right now but we are trying to get the rest of them. they are made of resin and you assemble it and do the interior the way you like. it comes with booths four figures and a roll out parking lot. it comes pre painted i added chrome and painted the steps. i made the cakes and used some dollhouse items and added some fugures of my own. the phone booth as George said is by scale modeling by chris that i did my way. thanks for asking Harry
