Some of you may know me, some not. Been building for about 20 years in this latest phase, some sports cars, some hot rods, some specialty items. Mostly I try to be imaginative and avoid the common subjects: tri five chebys, 32 fords (although...), US iron in general most times. More into British sports cars, cut down hot rods with a twist and usually an unusual engine, historic racing cars done in a non-exact manner, that sort of thing. May even see some of my builds in a magazine or two occasionally.

Current projects:

Aurora 34 Ford body (ebay, painted in mid 60s and gonna keep it), highly modified Revell 29 A frame kitbashed mostly with Rat Roaster, Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland flathead mill with SCOT blower and Ardun heads. Body deeply channelled over frame, almost dragging on ground. Wheels and tires from Rat Roaster. Going to set this up so can swap an Orange Crate 32 chopped sedan body onto it.

1950 VW Hebmuller conversion to Tamiya 66 Bug kit. Mica red paint with clear red overcoat. Porsche 356 wheels tires brakes from Fujimi Enthusiast kit. many interior parts from 356 as well. Engine basically out of box with RMM Weber carbs and air cleaners. Lowered as far down as I can.

1/8 scale Model T lakester, mostly in planning stages but TDR Offenhauser engine nearly done and ready to install.

41 Willys truck, resin body, mostly scratch built frame and interior including full rollcage, SBC with single high rise carb, Prostar wheels, scratch built pick up bed, etc. This is a model of my friends 1:1 race car though it will vary in some details.

I like to finish what I start so I do not have a ton of projects in process at one time, like to keep it to a managable level.

good to be here and see some familiar faces

Hi JB,

Do you have a blog of your Charlie Ace Swing-A-Ling mobile record shack? I'd like to see how you made it. The first time I saw it was at NNL West 2009.
