Didn't expect this....
Posted by Lilcricket440 on Saturday, June 1, 2019 6:03 AM

Hello everybody!

My Name is chelle .... 

I used to build model cars about 15 years ago...   

I got out of it and started building/restoring real cars ...

Now I'm trying My hand at models again.  Go figure... 

What started it is me and My old man completely off framed restored his dad's old truck... mpc recently released a 78 dodge truck and I decided to try to make him a replica of the truck we restored.  

Then I've gotten a couple of more kits since starting the truck so I can see this becoming a problem again.... lol.. 

I'm having difficulty finding some parts I need to do the truck correctly and I'm hoping here I can find some links to websites or resources to find what I need for that... also hoping to read up on some tricks, how to's ... etc ..

Maybe even since I've gotten to restore, and work on many older real cars I might be able to help some of you guys.... you never know...

Anyways that's me.... I'm glad I found this site... wanted to say hello and give a little bit of the back story about me....
