1:8 scale diecast MF Te20 farm tractor model

My very first 1:8 scale dicast model. The details are beautiful and the weathering and painting were fun to do on such a big scale model like this farm tractor. The customer was satisfied with the results. I've added 'before' photos.

1:8 Excelsior-Henderson Super X3D Scratch Built

About a year ago I had an idea to scratch build an Excelsior-Henderson Super X. Reason being—a model of one doesn’t exist and I worked at E-H in the late 90s and have always wanted to own one. While the real bikes are out there and not [...]

1/8 Aurora "Blue Knight of Milan"

Completed in 2022. This is a bagged kit of the Blue Knight, first released in 1957. The nameplate on the base said "Sir Galahad," so it was part of the 1967 "Camelot" reissues. Fortunately, I was able to get a pre-1967 [...]

1/8 Monogram Jaguar E Type Good Wood Coupe

Pocher 1:8 1907 Fiat F-2 Race Car
