    This is my last time starting Sunday models for a few weeks now because I know that some of you guys might like to start it. Here is what I have been working on this week. I finished this 32 Ford roadster, 29 Ford roadster, Porsche kustom and also started new projects out of my spare parts. I also attempted a chop on a 32 Ford tudor kit and I didn't fail and check out my album of model cars because I update it every Friday and feel free to post comments on the photos.

    I just finished the Zeppelin Diner . It was a real building in West Los Angles on Florence avenue near the Harbor freeway .

    My next project is to finish out the adjoining Gilmore gasoline station that would have been on Denver at Florence and next to the former Zeppelin diner

    Still chuggin along on the 1:8 deuce.

    Squared the frame then stuck it to some poster paper & laid out a centerline.
    Mock-up to see how everything's fitting together.
    With the 4 spd, the drive line is now open & I think I'm going 4 bar at the back vs using the original radius rods.

    Motor mounts & frame tabs, which I neglected to install before spraying my base coat of black, are drilled & aligned with pins...later to be replaced with mineature bolts.

    Bending jig for the tubular K members.

    Anyone needing info on the Zeppelin , it's 1-24th scale , ie 1/2inch equals a foot . I spent three years researching what I could of the building . AAA California was the greatest help. It's listed in the UCLA archives , but they really won't do much for out of town visitors . The actual construction uh I spent pretty near a year . As to cost , uh around a thousand dollars U S .............. scrubba

    B.A. King: today I bought about 4 ,40 ford models. all the headlight are gone except 2.anybody got any beater 40 ford models laying around that might have headlight you want to get rid of?

    I've got a pair of the chrome bezels and clear lenses from the AMT '39-'40 sedan kit that you can have. I used the '39 ones so have no need for the '40s. Send me a PM with your address.

    Tomorrow is the deadline for the H.A.M.B. Plastic Modeler Builders informal contest for '39 and '40 Ford cars and light trucks. You can see the builders' progress at

    In a couple of weeks the entries will be posted on the regular H.A.M.B. board for all to vote on.

    GREAT looking builds, guys! I just joined here not too long ago, so I hope I'm not out of line by posting a few older builds before showing what I'm currently working on.

    Here's a '29 Roadster P/U:
