You will definitely have to try to make the next one, Bill. NNL-worthy models, slot car racing and pizza in a hobby shop. Now that's a meeting! The Philly boys were great hosts, and it was cool to have guys from five clubs there.

No, it is a model, it just has lots of detail! 8)

I certainly had fun, especially with the slot cars! :mrgreen:

I think that the Pontiac "dream car" in the background is interesting. I would assume it is a resin-cast ?

bob :shock:

Well, unfortunately, I don't know the builder's name but he told me it started as a Franklin Mint '49 Caddy hardtop. He removed the roof, scratchbuilt the boot and repainted the car and added various details.

He will PROBABLY be at NNL EAST.

Bob, it was part of the cars from the 1954 (I think) Autorama show. All of the cars started as plastic. They are not resin. His display has been shown for 3 or 4 years now at various east coast shows and I think they were in a magazine,,,,but, of course, I don't remember which one. I think he is with the Silent Traffic club. CAN ANYONE PROVIDE THE BUILDERS NAME?
