Whats up everyone. My names Albie and I just found this site a few weeks ago. Its awesome! A little about me. Im 36 and been playin with cars (1:1) my whole life. Im currently building a 52 Chevy and a bodydropped, bagged 88 S10 Blazer. Im also into riding Harleys, tattoos, skiing and chasing girls (although at my age the girls have turned into women. Ha ha.)

Anyway, a month ago I was skiing Killington, crashed into the woods and came out the owner of a left heel bone that is broken in half. Killer!! So, needless to say Im grounded, stuck in my house immobile. I hate TV and Ive read every book and magazine in my collection twice. I was goin crazy till I picked up some models.

These are the first ones Ive done in 20 years and it probably shows. But Im hooked and been using this site for its great info, ideas, and the killer builds are getting me stoked.

Heres the first 3 in cronological order. All done the past 4 weeks. Im in the process of a new one and Ill post it in the under construction.
