    well hello everybody. its sunday, and that means MODELS!...or so i have heard. i am a first timer on the H.A.M.B, but so far i am digging everyones projects. my father is a HUGE car enthusiast and turned me on to this message board. he has built model cars when he was young. when he got older he moved to the real thing. he had a box load of models that he had put together. unfortunately a lot of them were broken or missing pieces. i grabbed what i liked and thought i could piece together. i have been messing about with models for a very short amount of time. in fact i just started actually building them this past couple of days. i did however, build a few when i was younger, like 10-15 yrs ago. im 25 now...you can do the math. those models somehow disappeared. i would really like to find them, just to see how bad they were, but for now i will stick with building new ones and piecing together my fathers. they were i believe a 1964 chevy impala convertible, 1966 olds 442 w30 and 1986 chevy monte carlo ss. i hope i find them. a little more than a year ago i decided to start building again. then went on hiatus, because of some "life issues". now im back to building. anyways i just wanted to introduce myself. i will be posting images of my builds.

    I took a fifty year break from building models..... Then, while slowly getting my new shop up and running so I could work on my full scale projects, I went back to the little ones for a while. Got three almost done and two others underway then I relinquished my hobby room so the wife could have an office for her business. Still haven't got back to finish 'em and now the big cars get all my free time.
    The Olds is reminiscent of a car from my high school (minus the Hilborns) and the sedan is what I wished my real Model A sedan coulda been.

    so, this will be my first build. ive always loves '41 willys. they are made into some amazing rides. i plan on making a straight axle for the front and turning this street rod into a gasser. customize it up a bit with a different grille and different wheels.

    so i have a few questions for all of you long-time builders. im just looking for tips on how to build these as realistic as possible, on a budget. what are good fabrics to use for interiors, how to add plug wires, how to re-chrome pieces, etc. which paint is best to use, enamel, acrylic. is there a website i can check out for these tips? anything would help.

    A couple you can try are:

    http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/?_fromLogin=1

    http://trakinscale.proboards.com/

    http://drasticplastics.proboards.com/

    TRaK is basically the scale version of the HAMB. Traditional stuff only and the year cutoff is 69.

    Way cool stuff everyone. The '40 looks great with those new chrome wheels Froghawk.
    Curiousgeo: Scale Auto enthusiast and Model Cars Magazine both have searchable forums full of great info.
    Have fun with the Willys!
    ...so the '30 coupe project is pretty much done for now (still thinking about adding a hood, but other things have taken priority). I'm glad I got it finished before Revell releases its 1/25 '30 coupe kit!

  11. Does anyone remember Mr. Bob Wingate, El Monte, Ca. and his extensive collection of models as well as many early dealer promos? 12012015_0002.jpg

    Built this concept of my 56 Chevy mild custom a few years back. Used a Revell 55 Chevy convertible and a Revell 56 Nomad to make this. model.JPG model2.JPG
