    Here's "Digger", one of my Hawk's Weird-oh models that I put together around 1965 when I was eight years old. Original paint!

    Excellent work! Great pics from the show.Thanks for posting!
    Can you fellas share your sites for parts and maybe sites with "how to's" ? Would really appreciate it. My skills are lacking and need some pointers on building and customizing. Thanks Kev.
     
  8. Don't bother, find a hobby worth the wasted time.

    If this means what it seems to mean (and I can't read any other meaning into it), you just put a serious dent in my respect for you; not that that matters to you, I'm sure. ANY hobby, almost by definition, is "wasted time."

    I agree deano.......I didnt expect negativity on this subject.

    Thanks rusty....will look into that.
     
  13. Waste your time with friends and family, not by your self.
    Learned that the hard way, my best mate of many years died just the other day when I was too busy playing with models to help him.

    Doc.
     
  14. doc, sorry to hear about your friend

    heres a couple pics of my plastic junk

    the 25 t is aprogress pic of the one i started last saturday

    the tri-fives are not for the build off just some i built a while back

    the green 57 is partly inspired by the dan glover mid engine car that no one can seem to find now

    Sorry for your loss Doc. Sounds like it couldnt be helped. Its cold and wet here in Slower Delaware. My old bones dont want to be out side. so my early Saturday and Sunday mornings while the wife gets her extra rest are spent in my toy room cursing the mess I make of models. Ha ha , keeps me off the street. I still love doing it. Lost most of my skills that I never had. Trying to relearn...Kev.
     
  16. heres a couple more

    ive allways liked tri fives in green for some reason or other

    and i had to post acouple of 57 fords just to balance out

    I have a question on model glue. Is there a different kind of super glue for the plastic models, I have been trying to use super glue and it will not hold the parts together?
     
  18. Sorry for your loss Doc.
    A personal word about hobbies. I was raised with an alcoholic family. I had the 3 alcoholic step fathers who would constantly verbally abuse me and sometimes, hit me. I found model building as a kid to escape the hell, it was my salvation...otherwise, I contemplated about suicide at a young age. I might not be here today.
    If you take great satisfaction in your hobby, it's not a waste of time.
     

  19. they make "super" glue for models you can find it at most any good hobby shop i just use good old testers orange and white tube if your trying to glue plated parts together the plating has to be scraped off for the glue to stick goes for painted parts also

    I have never considered any hobby a waste of time.
    We need a diversion from the complexities of everyday life, jobs, and stress.
    We need to express our individual creativity and hobbies afford that outlet.
    Death is a fact of life, and it does sadden us when someone we know and love passes.
    it is saddens us that we may think we did not do enough or spend enough time with the one who passes from this life.
    This, too, is a fact of life. We go about our days living as if we have plenty of time and develop the attitude that tomorrow we will visit others.
    The time slips away and we do not take those opportunities we may have.
    Sometimes we get other chances and the poster who asked for help is one.
    Doc's skill and experiences would afford him the opportunity to make a new friend, if it is just over the internet. Who knows where that could lead?

    I know what you mean paintcan......I stopped using superglue.....it ruins your glasswork and fogs it up.....ask me how I know. Finally went to a hobby shop and got the regular model glue. Works for me.....

    Anybody have windshield and back glass for a 67 Nova hardtop? Need it to finish my Nova. DOH!

    Maybe others have something better? Kev.

    there's a subforum here: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/group.php?groupid=105 it's not that active but there's some good builders and most guys will try to help you along.

    one thing which is helpful, and that's to ask a specific question. most guys who ask general questions get no responses, or ones which aren't all that inviting.

    a gazillion internet forums, but here's some of my favorites:

    http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/

    http://trakinscale.proboards.com/index.cgi

    http://z8.invisionfree.com/Scale_Racing_Lobby/index.php?act=idx

    http://vintagedragmodelsinc.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=login

    http://drasticplastics.proboards.com/index.cgi?

    http://cs.scaleautomag.com/f/

    http://www.scalemotorcars.com/

    http://www.largescalemodeler.com/newforum/index.php

    http://therustbucketbrigade.proboards.com/index.cgi

    http://plasticaddictsanon.proboards.com/index.cgi

    http://custommodelhotrods.proboards.com/index.cgi

    don't be put off if a site isn't devoted to the scale or type of car you like the most. knowledge is cumulative and can be gleaned from anywhere. to post, sometimes even see pictures, you have to join, but that's fairly painless.

    you'll figure out the sites you like the best in short order!

  29. Sorry guys, I'm a little mad at the world right now.
    He died by his own hand, after serving with him over 18 years in our Army and 4 deployments I was not there for him.
    Please don't hold it against me.

    Doc.

    Make that mad at myself.
