Hey Gang. I just joined today and found some really nice work here. I thought I would post some of the things I've been working on. Some of you may have seen the stuff on other sites. Here goes.

Except for the first picture, everything else is scratch built in 1/8 scale. I love to build in the larger scales because you can really see the detail. Too bad I have to wear thick glasses. :D

Yikes! is that a working flathead V8??? :o Looks mighty real to me! :D More details on that one!

Would love to see the rest of what you're working on! The seat there looks like real vinyl................is that in 1/8? Yeah thick glasses can be a pain............add bifocals to the mix and we're in a world of hurt! ;)

Welcome to the board!

Thanks guys for the kind words. Everything there is in 1/8 scale. Unfortunately the flathead is not a working one. It's the one that comes out of the Big Deuce kit with a bunch of scratch built details. The seat is covered with real vinyl and will go into a deuce kit. Hey Harry, good to see you. You're right, we need good large scale representation. It's a great part of the hobby. BTW, the avatar is a remnant of my former profession. :D

You're right Ken, I made that avatar go away. Here's some more pics of an engine I'm scratchbuilding. It's an early Olds Rocket but it's still in progress.

With your attention to detail, I assume that the 1/8 scale radio you'll scratchbuild for the dash will actually work...right? ;)
