Scale I Build

Found 6 results

  1. I finished my version of Ed Roth's Mysterion car last October. I wrote a book about the car talking about its creation in the first half then describing my build in the second half. It's available on Amazon. Definitely a bucket list item! Now I am building a 1/8th scale version of the car. Mark Gustavson asked me to give a short seminar at next year's GSL.

  3. This book is a fascinating look at the hobby as it was in the middle of the 20th century. While it details the construction of models using a variety of materials, the book also mentions that plastic kits were becoming popular. Apparently some oldtimers used to wood and metal didn't think much of the newer kits. A small point worth mentioning for you 0 Scalers is that the scale standard used in this book for 0 was 17/64" to the foot rather than 1/4". https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015009816383&seq=1&q1="scratch+building"&view=thumb
  4. Some cool diorama/display inspiration here. Camping and boating in the 1950s with Ford wagons. https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uiug.30112000731189&view=thumb&seq=1
  5. Was thinking of getting a book about the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO. Several have been published, was checking out what is available. I'm surprised about the price of some, but this one is insane! And you need to know French. Anyone have one of the other books, to give a quick review or opinion about?
  6. ">http:// The Rodder's Journal published ALL of Dan Post's Restyling guides including the famed and illustrious "Blue Book" and very early (1944) mimeographs. Just got my copies today, and man, talk about being inspired by these archaeological finds! Best thing for us model builders are the many hand drawn illustrated "how-to's", plus tons of pics of how it really was, many pre-Hot Rod magazine! This reference material is well worth reading through the sometimes archaic 40's era prose, but tips on channeling, chopping, sectioning, and slamming (my term, not Dan's) 40's and early 50's iron will surely inspire you to get something old on your bench. If your a custom fan, I'm sure you've heard about this release. Believe the hype and get a copy. My build is on hold until I burrow though these manuals, then its off to find some early post-war kits!
