Scale I Build

  1. To say is waste of time, I will show you my latest collection. 1:18 W Motors Fenyr Supersport in white:
  2. Early 60's AMT paint cans in the box with kit. That's what's missing from these nostalgia kits! Best match up now is Testors lacquer.Lots of good colors. Wild altereds. Saw some old ad's for Revell kit's like Ed Roth Bantam Bomber and Studebaker Miss Deal. Those were the kits to get in that era. AMT comes close to that with Jawbreaker.You have to build it right to get that 'thrown together' look. Because that's the way those cars were.They were built to do just one thing.So they were not real stylish. Box art AMT MPC. That's a tough go for them. I myself have come around to checking for any box art or real race cars or custom cars on the net. AMT works hard to put something on the box but really the modeler has to get himself motivated to build 'that car'.

    Harry Pristovnik

    HI Everyone, I'm hoping some of you will see this post and reply. My dad, Harry Pristovnik, was an avid contributor to this website and those of you that knew him know cars and model cars were his passion. He passed away in April and we don't know what to do with his extensive model car collection. These models meant EVERYTHING to him. I know he'd want them to go to people who will treasure them as much as he did. Will you all give us some advice on what to do? Sell them to model car enthusiasts? (is there any interest on this site from people who'd want to buy them?) Donate them to a museum? We're talking hundreds of completed models, and some unfinished kits. We can't keep them (though of course we will keep a few, in his memory). We're lost. Please help. This was his world and we need a glimpse into how to honor his dedication and love for it. Gratefully, Amy

  7. Getting back into it after many years. Started when I was 10 and bought several kits around $12 each to make 1 rig. Always 1/25 scale because that was all we had. Got out of it in my late teens and now back at 50. Pricey now compared to then..... My intro back into it is a pair of Freightliner COE's stretched pulling 53' reefer trailers. I am well underway with the first one with the frame for the second beside it to show the contrast. I still have sanding to do and fix a few glitches. They will have the appearance of 2 distinct rigs with personal driver preferences like Owner Operator rigs. I have seen some amazing builders on here and YouTube that have me a bit embarrassed to post.....but I love this stuff. More pics to come as it progresses.

  10. Back into this after over 30 years. My first project is two COE Freightliners that will pull 53' reefers. I stretched the first one a little - but the second is a lot longer as you can see the rough frame. Still needs sanding and a few glitch fixes. They will resemble owner operator rigs with individual personality hauling frozen food across this great land. I will send updated pics as it progresses. I love this stuff and there are some very talented builders here and on YouTube.
  11. Has anyone heard anything from Rick? He is really good about answering emails and I have not heard from him about a small issue I had on an order and was hoping he is ok. It has been several months and that is just not like him. He has really nice decals and normally great customer service. I would like to order more if I know everything is alright. Thanks
