All very cleanly built. The color you used on each one suites them perfectly. I like the close to stock but with a little extra look.

Quality and quantity! I remember seeing a few of those through the year, they all look excellent.

That's a very nice group of models you built there.

Very impressive array.  I wish I could produce quality eye-catching builds like this at a much quicker rate, but...

Of all the builds you posted, this stood out the most to me.  I'm guessing it's an old AMT kit with a 2 metal axle chassis, but the paint colors, stance and detailing made me stop and look longer.

You had a very good year!  Beautiful paint and foil work.

All great looking builds Tommy.  Hard to pick a favorite in that group but the '68 (or is it a '69) and the '66 SS Chevelle (since I used to own one) do it for me.?

Ya know.....when I see a post like 20 builds in a year  I expect to see 20 fairly good looking builds. Upon scrolling through all of this however, I am amazed at the quality of these 20 builds. Very good job on all of these Tommy.

Not easy to pick a favorite out of those! All are phenomenal builds. The AMX and Toronado are inspiring.

Very nice.  How do you guys do it?  I cannot get that many cars built in two years.

I'm actually kinda glad that I can't build that fast. I'd run out of display space just that much quicker. lol

It's called the Corona builds... Home office most of the time  in 2020, e.g. saving me a lot of time going to and from the office by car. Plus it adds a lot of flexibility to how I spend  my "daily routine"...

You have a point there! But then again, I have been a "non-finisher" in term of modelling in former times and most of my builds ended up in the bin. That was a long time ago, but now I enjoy building and finishing (!) models even more... :rolleyes:

I have a few I need to jump back on that I started and need to finish.  One a Monogram 69 Judge and the other a Johan 69 Roadrunner.  Not hard cars to finish either.  I have no idea why I didn't finish either of them.

I've got a few of those kinds of builds that I planned everything out for and then out of the blue I selected a total different build in its place. I've got a 79 Mustang that I REALLY want to build into a 460 car. Got the custom decals, the  resin 460 and all that stuff for it too.  I think I just talked myself into building it for my next build.

All these? In one year? Amazing builds each and every one! It takes me a year just to get one decent paint job done!
