Nice stuff, man!

I went to a model contest today, then we went to Willow Springs raceway after for some vintage roadracing spectating. I won't pretend that these are even a tenth of the pics I COULD have taken, but here's the album.

As a kid, the original S'Cool Bus was one of the first models I built...and one of the first models I blew-up with a firecracker. I wish I wouldn't have. :angry:

That's a Testors HSO (Hobby SHop Only) resin kit of the Ed Newton "Mercster". It's a resin kit produced by Jimmy Flintstone for Testors, but mine was missing some parts. I filled the grille with the Moon tank, added upper "A"-arms from another kit, used the disc brake setup from the recent release of the old MPC Switchers deuce sedan/phaeton, and then showcased a set of the new "showrod" tires from Freeman Cars wrapped around AMT Barris "T" Buggy wheels.

I also finished this one:

Sweeeeeet. I've been thinking about doing a fenderless bug with all the inner fenderwells and such that are usually left at least somewhat intact... maybe a resin body when it's done?

Yea, I need to do somthing with the inner fender walls and such.Its pretty much just a mock-up. I got a ford front end,ford dash and the decals off of the fort "rat rod" model.The bonnet and decklid are just tapped for now but I need to find a way of having them actually open.

I was just checking out the profile of `funnybug', listed under `Today's Birthdays' at the bottom of the main forum page.
(No posts yet but if you're out there lurking, funnybug .... Happy birthday!)

Anyway, while snooping around his homepage I clicked on the `garage' link and was blown away by the pictures of some great looking models there.
Great looking stuff, check `em out.

Main `garage' page:

Some examples below, many more at the link above:
