1/24 Academy Mazda T600 Truck

This was a fun project for me. I took a break from modeling for a while I wanted to try something different as I usually do 1/48 aircraft. This is the first time a tried a vehicle and at 1/24 scale this thing is still pretty tiny. I wanted [...]

They still make model cars in the USA

Salvanos JR Models is a company that molds NASCAR kits mostly from the glory days. Designed in Texas and molded in California they are limited run, but very well made. This kit started out as a Richard Petty '73 Charger, but a couple of [...]

The NASCAR Race truck build

Good lord AMT makes horrible kits. I would never touch one of these kits if I wasn't paid to do so. I think drug use is rampant at the AMT factory. Anyhoo here is a 1/25th scale AMT NASCAR Raybestos race truck. Custom everything on this [...]

100 Ans de Le MansSauber-Mercedes C9

Here's the final result of my attempt at building the Tamiya 1:24 scale Sauber-Mercedes C9, the winner of the 1989 Le Mans race, as my entry in the Le Mans 100 year anniversary group. This is a very well-engineered kit that builds into a [...]

Yamaha XS-1100 Midnight Special Tamiya # 16034 1:6 scale

I’ve alway had an affinity to Black and Gold color scheme, such as Chapman’s Johnny Player Special Lotus F-1 cars. So When I saw the Yamaha Midnight Special I had to have it. I had 12 motorcycle builds under my belt by this time, [...]

1/12 Ninja H2 build

Hello again! Here is my latest build the Tamiya 1/12 scale Ninja H2. I built this kit for a gentleman that owns the full scale version of this kit. Kit builds up nicely as these kits do, not much scratch building needed in this one, it's [...]

33 - 1/24 ESCI Ferrari SWB Rally

Roooooar - what a stunning classic this on is and man with rally decals - holy moly what a gorgeous car, I loved this build. So when I had the opportunity for this beast I jumped at it - Painted and added a bit of extras to the engine, but [...]

1968 Oldsmobile 442 Holiday Hardtop

I built this MCW Resin kit using the 1969 442 AMT kit. Beautiful resin casting of this car! I built this a a replica of a former ride I had in 1975. I added a scratch built vinyl top and painted with GM Production color [...]
