  1. Great work Paul! Looks like many farms here in central PA. Amazing details, especially for the small scale! Sam
  2. Very nice! Looks like a well-used farm truck that sat out in the weather. I like it! Sam
  3. Best version of that kit I've ever seen! Nice work! Sam
  4. Very nice build, Jim! I like orange Deuces. Check my avatar! Sam
  5. Great build! Looks good in that color. The old engine in the bed is a nice touch. Good looking diorama, too! Sam
  6. The Merc is my favorite in this group. Great work! Sam
  7. Beautiful models, Rich! I like the Buick a lot. Sam

    Looks mean! I like the wheels. Good work! Sasm
  10. Here is a simple rebuild of an old AMT Paddy Wagon model I built in the 1960's. It's now a WWI ambulance. Pretty easy project - just disassemble, repaint, reassemble and add a few details. I used wheels and tires from a '23 T van kit, since the old kit had the black one-piece molded wheels/tires, which are hard to paint. Crosses were printed from online photos. The smaller equipment box was from my parts boxes, and the larger ones are plastic covers found on the ends of a USB cable. I hope you like it! Sam My inspiration
  11. Wow! That's some really innovative styling there! Amazing build! Sam
  12. A couple more photos. Interior, and trailer on one of my car show dioramas. Sam
  13. Those are resin items from Larry's G Scale, who markets a lot of model railroad stuff. Sam
  14. It's done! Posted in the under glass diorama section. Sam
  15. This is my scratch built food trailer for my car show dioramas. I'm calling it done, but I might add some signage and a few more details later. It's made from styrene sheet, angles, rod, etc. Mustang wheels, resin propane tanks, balsa steps. Full interior with stove, griddle, sink, counters, fluorescent ceiling lights, etc. Roof is removable for repairs or additions. Fun project, but a bit tedious with the details. I'll post photos of it on the car show diorama later. Thanks for the compliments from when it was in the WIP section of the forum! These are not the best photos. I need more light in my workshop. Sam
  16. That hardtop is looking great, and I like the fastback sedan a lot! Great work on both! Sam
  17. Propane tanks and lines done. Tank rings are .010" styrene rolled in a circle and overlapped and glued, then glued to styrene base. Tanks are resin items. Sam
  18. This is really well done! Great realism! It reminds me of some of the stations we had here when I was a kid. They're all gone now, replaced by look-alike convenience stores. Sam
  19. Window props, taillights, license plate frame, reflectors mounted. Almost done!
  20. Revell 32 roadster. Partially channeled body, aftermarket independent front suspension (I don't remember who makes it). Ancient hemi and top from an original AMT Deuce. Built in 2003. Sam
  21. Revell 32 3-window coupe. Photoetched grille. Paint is Antares Red, a Suzuki motorcycle color I used to paint a café fairing for a Suzuki VX800 I owned.
