About Jeepzilla

Hi, Im Mahlon, 48 yr old man. I have built and shown models for over 30 yrs. I Enjoy all forms and scales of model projects. I like building in several different mediums, plastic, metals and resins and wood, fiberglass etc. Autos, trucks and motorcycles appeal to me more than anything else though. The highlight of my career was in 1993 when I was fortunate enough to attend the Greater Salt Lake International Model Contest #14. I met so many VIP's in the modeling world there from Mark Gustavison to Augie Hiscano! I sat and talked with Augie about a project of mine and he was so helpful in explaining some machining techniques to me. I had traveled the eastern half of the USA attending shows for 7yrs, meeting new friends, but this was the epitome of my modeling hiatus! I was awarded 1st place in the foreign/exotic class with my 1/16 1965 427 SC Ford Cobra.        My 1/43 1965 289 Ford Cobra placed 1st in the small scale class. My Ayoshima 1/24 Nissan Pathfinder placed 1st in trucks non commercial and received some awards in other classes too! Not to mention that I got to see the grand canyon on the trip! But back to present day...I have chrons disease and am now disabled so I have time to model once again in my life. Im hoping to be able to show models again, I have several in the, don't we all?
