Back into building car models after many years,
Posted by Menerdari on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 12:00 PM

Hi, I am Jim, 59 years old from north east Ohio.

I have been building 1/32 scale planes and 1/35 scale helicopters over the past few years, before that was RC airplanes, high power rockets and a couple of wooden ship models. But now the car bug has bit me. Over the last half year I build the Berverly hillbillies truck, 2 model t coca-cola delivery trucks (one red and one white) a 1941 chevy pickup and just finished a slightly modified Lindberg 1937 Ford convertible (got rid of the gawdy side trim and when with a single strip)  I am now working and a double build 1958 Impala and 1961 Catalina both bodies are primed and ready for color coat.

I still have a large collection of military models but for now I and having a riot working on the cars. I love the forum here and info I have gleaned from it has dramatically improved my builds. Thanks to all of you.

Welcome to the forum, Jim. This forum has been resulted in a major improvement in my model building as well. Keep on building.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
