    I like those old "Highway Pioneers" kits. (I started with them and 'Hudson Miniatures' when I was 10 or so)

    The Model T Center Door sedan was the first kit I ever "kit-bashed"...Chopped the top, sanded all the edges, reshaped fenders, and crossed suspension, engine, wheels/tires from the Highway Pioneers 69 cent "Hot Rod".
    The car I modeled was Art Chrisman's '29 Model A Tudor sedan... 1954.

    Fugitive Fairlane looks like the real thing...This is superb modeling!
     
  5. Here's the only one I messed with. Started with an unbuilt kit she gave me. I used the engine, suspension, wheels and tires from Revell "parts packs". I built this around 1961. Didn't have the skills I do now and it's pretty old so there are lots of bad gaps on it. Sometimes I'm tempted to take it apart and re-do it. But then again, it has a lot of character as a "survivor"

    Last two '40 cpes I did. Not my best werk. Could decide how I really wanted 'em so when in doubt, go black.

    I first met Bob Hardin about 10 years ago when I was marketing some products for the slot car hobby and I hired him to handle the artwork. Besides being a brilliant graphic artist he's a neat guy and we hit it off right away.

    I'm too lazy to type it all out again, so here's a cut and paste of an article I wrote for HO World Magazine...along with some pics.

    Many of the H.O. World readers are probably familiar with the work of
    artist Bob Hardin. His Slot Car "THRILLUSTRATIONS" and "SLOT
    CARtoons" adorn the walls of slot car parlors, basements, and hobby
    shops around the globe. Few however, have probably had the pleasure
    of seeing one of his "Track-in-the-Box" portable scenic raceways that
    he created early on in his career.
    You see when he's not busy with his work as a commercial illustrator
    for clients like NASCAR and Lucent, or drawing for CARtoons magazine,
    or teaching advanced cartooning techniques at the Joe Kubert School
    of Art, Bob spends his off time plying his skills as a master
    modeler. His sprawling scenic basement layout, an interwoven old
    school collaboration of vintage H.O. trains and slot cars, is right
    out of the pages of an early 60's Car Model magazine. Mix in his
    appreciation for vintage 1:1 race cars, small town race tracks, and
    throw in a heavy dose of a childhood spent reading Mad magazine and
    here are the scaled-down results. Only a few of these suitcase-sized
    layouts were built.
    This happens to be the original Slot Car Speedway" #1 which later
    served as the model for some of his "Thrillustration" artwork. It
    features "weathered" lock and joiner track with soldered rail joints,
    original 60's figures, accessories, and scratch built scenery, all
    with hand painted detailing. Oh yeah there's a built in transformer
    and hook-ups hidden in the surrounding rock formations that allow two
    racers to clip on their favorite controller and run some hot laps. It
    uses a couple of old Aurora coupes that have rock hard slicks
    on the back. It keeps the speed down and allows you to slide them
    through the turns. It's a real hoot! Look close and you'll even see
    an H.O. sized Bob Hardin next to the infield pit shack, enjoying the
    action with his favorite cold beverage. The whole layout is approx.
    42"x 21".

    Enjoy the action.

    Still there mate, hasn't moved. Only thing that has changed is that it is now a continuing thread and not a weekly one. Much better and easier to find now because it does not need to be searched under various variations of its title
    Cheers and enjoy your models

    The Social Group is gone. After running 14 Model Build-Offs and a ton of time put in to it, I simply got burnt out. It became more of an obligation and the fun ran out. Participation in the Build-Offs got to the point of only having 3 entries compared to 15-20. I spent a ton of time trying to get cool prizes and make it interesting, but to no avail. I posted that if anyone wanted to take over the moderator duties, I would transfer it over to them. No one responded. Hopefully, someone will take the reigns and start a new group on here. I would join right up.

    Thanks for all of your time invested in it Lucio. I enjoyed it while it was there, and unfortunately I wouldn't have the time to run it either.
