For some reason this has always been my favorite. It a simple build of the old '49 Ford kit where I scratchbuilt the roof lights. I cast the radio and siren box from old masters. The build was fun, the subject is near and dear to my heart, and it came out pretty good.

After three years and many subsequent builds, this one always captures my eye when I go into my 'TOY ROOM'.

Really diverse and interesting group of models. Heres my favorite, I built this about 5 years ago and although my skills have improved since then this is still one of my favorites for a few reasons. First I was always a big fan of Dyno Don growing up near the Detroit Dragway.....Second I tried building this car as a kid and failed miserably.....And finally my first ever Best in Show award came with this build.

Thanks for looking,

Raisin

I would say that the car I'm most proud of to date is this 1967 Chevelle. The body has been with me since I started building models and I've modified it extensively many, many times.

Ive shown both of these before. The ratty roadster is a favorite because it was the most modified model I completed since returning to the hobby in 2007. The coupe is a pride and joy because I love the vintage style and it has NO mistakes, at least that one can see!

This is an AMT 58 Impala which I received as a semi-squashed incomplete kit. The end result was exactly as I imagined.
