About us carnut

Hi,I'm Marc,I'm 37 and live in Sydney,Australia,I am an estimator for a large collision repairer

i built model cars as a kid,pro streeted and customised everything, they were pretty basic(had no idea about BMF etc) but they were the coolest thing back then,I lost interest around 17 when girls and 1:1 cars had my attention,I am now married to a great woman who can appreciate a man having a healthy hobby and have a beautiful  4 year old girl

then about 7 years ago i had a motorbike accident and was unable to work for about 8 months,so i went and bought a model car('58 Plymouth) and loved it,I soon found myself buying more

I really like building factory stock and some very mild customs,somewhere along this I started looking at vintage out of production kits and discovered I don't have to hunt the very few hobby shops here for those great old kits,I really like the Jo-han's and early MPC stuff

I'm slowly getting better at building and have started to build some of those vintage kits

I learn and try something new on every build,

Scale Auto has been my greatest resource for learning more,i would list Tim Boyd and Juha Ario as  some of my inspirational builders

thanks for reading
