If you are near Richmond Virginia , look for me to once again be a participant at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens Holiday festival of lights and Miniatures show opening November 2018 . You can NOW go to Art Forms design on face Book and see previous shots of the miniatures and of the lights . This up coming show will present two Richmond Virginia buildings , the former J-H garage, a 1920 Marland Oil dealer on Forrest Hill ave and 1205 West Franklin , former Coffee house where Bruce Springsteen , Elizabeth Cotton and Richard Leigh used to play on Saturday nights .

Gee, I've only got two:

1. Pontiac hot rod -- Club de Mer body narrowed, shortened and simplified (already done) put on a mostly scratchbuilt hod rod chassis with an exposed Pontiac V8 and rear axle. It would be as if it was commissioned by Pontiac in the early '60s as a show car to appeal to the youth market.

2. '66 Riviera radical custom -- Imagine the four fenders cut off, the remaining body narrowed about a foot (already done), then the four fenders "floating" in their original positions. It would be sort of like a car from the '30s but much lower and sleeker.

I'm sure nobody really wants to see a list of my never-never builds. ;)

But your half-builts are as interesting as anything on this forum. I'd settle for a recap roundup. :)

Me...LOL.. I have a ton of stuff planed for the bench most are waiting due to needed parts though.  

I have around 100 old models and promos together that were my dads I need to get restored.

I have around 50 build idea projects I want to start on once I can.

I have a goal to build replicas of as many vehicles the family had owned over the years possible.

After seeing this I don't have any projects anymore.

I'll be too busy to watch yours :-)

But on my list are:

RWB 993 Porsche

Rocket Bunny Mazda RX-7 FD3 

1970 Buick GSX Pro Street

2002 Camaro Pro Stock

Matt and Debby Hayes Thunderbird Pro Street

1970 1/2 Camaro Pro Street (inspired by Monza's Camaro of Street Outlaws)

A couple of 1999 Camaro's (based on the Camaro I used to have: a base Z28 As I bought it, upgraded like how I sold it and one how it would have evolved if I had been able to hold on to it longer and do with it as I had in mind).

1948 Ford Coupe custom, based on a Juha Airio kit ( https://public.fotki.com/Rikster/model_cars/model_cars_from_others/models_by_juha_airio-1/48_ford_custom/ )

1970 1/2 Camaro Pro touring

 

I like this topic!!

I'm trying to get back into my original '63-'67 AMT & MPC Corvette restos project. Gonna try to get to get maybe a half dozen of them done this year; I have two active on the bench right now ('66 MPC Coupe and '65 AMT Roadster). Also have a couple mid-'70s Vette promos I'd like to polish out and lay my Snake-fu on. Oh, and the AMT '53 and Mako Shark I snappers. And an MPC '67 Charger, and a '61 Ranchero.

Other than that, not much....:lol:

Physically on the bench: Redo of the vintage Bugs Buggy, 71 Tbird, and the 1/16 Rod Shop Vette redo (need decals).  After that, your guess is as good as mine.

This reminds me of why I limit myself to just a max of two projects at once. I used to have four or five and I would just loose my way as to what I was doing bouncing from one to the other. I'm putting the finishing touches on a build for the Hartland  Model Car contest this weekend.  I have been building one of the Hemi-Hydro kits I bought several years ago, for a tow vehicle I have modified a '66 Chevelle wagon. So I have a modified ski boat and trailer and the wagon all going at once. I'm again convinced that I should just do one at a time in the future.
