I know I have told you guys before about this but here is another one I am working on now that I figured out how to make cars. I ts an 81 Chevy Blazer with a full interior, and detailed undercarriage, engine bay and guages. The motor is a supercharged 383 with an Allison 7 speed auto and Atlas 2 Transfercase which is why there are triple sticks on the floor.. Like I said it is WIP so small stuff like the exhaust from the Flowmaster Super 40s to the headers need finished. A close look reveals U joints and slip joints on the drive shafts.

This is a car I downloaded but am cutting up to make a 1970 Cutlass 442. It started life as a Buick GSX. Hood is the first order of buisness. Then my Mil Spec HMMWV I plan to build after I build my rod shop.

It is a chore sometimes. Need to have an eye for where stuff needs to go next. And work on small pieces to make the whole. There are tutorials on youtube for it.

This is my dream home I been working on. It is loosly based off the log home from "Legends of the Fall". There is strong Frank Lloyd Wright prairie styling in the doors and other areas. The kitchen is separated from the main house but there will be a heated walkway in the alcove between them (something different). The kitchen area would have been the first part of the cabin built for the living area when first settled. A lot of the floor plan will still be changed and the railings and posts for the wrap around porch need finished and a Victorian style tower will be added where the section of walls are missing in the back corner.

Yep and the thing is is you can make it toscale. So say you were building a model you could design parts, pieces or the mods and play around with it to get it to look right.
