I haven't built anything for several years, but here's a couple pics, of my toy room. I got into collecting Hot Wheels cars. I've just started customizing them.

The main reason I gave up building model cars, is one day I walked into a local hobby store, and when I seen just how detailed people where building them, I just gave it up, I mean there was no way i could ever build one that had real looking rotors and lugs on the front, and with rims that the lug holes where drilled out.

I did till I got this girlfriend.. I can freehand flames and get down to using brushes with half a dozen fibers to pinstripe them.. I built a rat rod with a 302 with a blower, 27 model t kit, and the plastic that the parts come on to build the 4 link suspension and all.. I have a 55 chevy truck that is lifted, I built an exo-cage on it, and did a copper/ silver paint job.. I sure miss going to the county fair and seeing the first place tags on my models

I came home from work one day and told my wife I bought another Explorer. (this would have been vehicle #9) She started bitching about all the other cars i owned, till I showed it to her....



That was 4 years ago, I still havent even opened the box.
