I did some shopping today and i ordered some parts to get my very first 1/16 pro mod started and i must say the mail better hurry! lol . I do thank the amazing builders that have been building these large scale pro mods because in the end you are my inspiration.

Not a fan of the biggies, but I do like a nice ProMod. Hopefully the excitement to start will carry you to the finish.

thank you, and yeah im typically 1/25 - 1/24 but i thought it would be nice to get away for a bit, you know to kinda relax from making such small parts lol. plus just watching some of the amazing detail work that goes into these is mind blowing so naturally i had to try it :)

I'm starting to get the itch for one of these.... really really bad itch, but I need to at least get my first 72 done... However I do see one of these in my future and my wallet is already mad at me!! I'll be watching this for sure. Love the amount of detail that can be crammed into these....
