      I'm scheduling a maintenance window tonight starting at 9PM Pacific Daylight time. Might be down for a while, so you west coasters should plan on building something tonight.

Hi guys, I'm Tommy from Italy.

First time poster, I'm 40 years old and just started with 1/25 model cars. I come from gundam model kits (started 1 year ago...),

but I always wanted to build some american cars, so here I am!  My favourite cars are the late 60's muscle cars, pro street, gassers, custom vans and pickups.


I bought 5 amt kits, watched a lot of youtube tutorials, and started with this ford econoline. 

My goal is to build models which have open doors/trunks, add some wires/details to the engine... and go for a ratrod/rusty look.

I'm pretty sure I'll find a lot of inspiration here, I've browsed some jaw-dropping galleries!

Have a nice day, ciao!

Welcome Tommy.  By the way,  you've mastered the English language very well.  This is a really good website.

Hi guys, thanks again! :wub:

Hey GMP440, I've replied to your pm.


Finally tonight I've received some custom pieces, some rearview mirrors, some steering wheels, carbs, distributor with ignition wire, air filters...

But also some feet, hands, heads.... :D

For the first time I'll try to make my 1/24 figures...

Has anyone of you already done something like that?


I'll start my first build thread in the following days... Bye!
