My first official post and some completes for 2020

Recommended Posts

Got started in scale auto models in the late 70’s, kinda grew out of it in the eighties. Made a couple of attempts to restart over the next couple of decades.

had a health upset on Nov 1 this year ( darn 2020) so I needed a hobby to keep me sane and active.

went into the basement and dig around as I know I had some started models in a box and now seemed the fitting time to start again.

so I present to you the four completes for the past 6 weeks

You have a nice looking collection there. I'd certainly be proud to have builds like those in my collection.

I like the two T - Buckets and the aggressive look of the 3 Window. The 5 window with the full engine cover is interesting.

Nabbed a pic from the inter webs and did my best to replicate it based on that pic only

I like how this looks like something someone could drive in most any kind of weather save snow.

I'm sorry to learn of your health issues, I have a few new ones of my own so I can empathize.

You have some great looking classic hot rods there, I especially like the blue T-Bucket.

Welcome back to the hobby~

I dug the 3-window when you posted it earlier. It's especially well proportioned with the little hemi and choice of rolling stock give it a tough, close coupled look. The stance in particular just nails it. I hope you stick with it in 2021. All the best for a happy, healthy and productive New Year.

Thank you so much for your positive comment.

im five builds in complete and hope to knock another 2 off the bench before New Years.

the 32 3 window is my Favourite build to date these four are the next batch, the 34 I don’t expect to finish anytime soon as I’m still searching for a complete kit or built up to harvest more parts

As you probably have figured out by now, if you didn' know it already, when it comes to hot rods stance is everything. And it looks like you've got that firmly ensconced in bag of tricks.
