1/24 VW Bus

Hi All, Here’s my first 2019 post. I recently completed this VW Bus as a birthday present for my wife. In +/- 50 years of modeling this is my first non military vehicle I’ve modeled, so it’s a bit rough around the edges, so please don't look [...]

2 down 2 to go! “Diggin” building in 2019!

Monogram’s 1/24 Scale 1966 Ford Shelby GT350H

Started to build this kit about 15 years ago. Never completed due to the horrible stock decals associated with this kit! I painted this Shelby black lacquer and masked off the black and painted the gold stripes with lacquer. Was wet sanded th[...]
