Idea for Dec COM

I was thinking today of a different kind of COM this December. Let's SCALE it down, literally. Let's do a scale model build off. Let's see who can make the coolest model.

Rules:
1) Only 1:24 or 1:25 scale
2) Any vehicle of your choice
3) Must be submitted by Nov 30th
4) Only submitter may work on it
5) Only one vehicle may be submitted

Came up with the idea when I started my '66 Chevelle today.

That thing is nice I can't do anything that good with the break lines, vacuum hoses and plug wires.

Yea, side effect of using crazy glue.

The cool part of the car and that pic is that you can see thru the grill so it has that 'real' look to it.

MOTM was an idea that I had today for a web site specific to car club members and not just this club but all car clubs.

Hehe. That took me hrs to do. A little filing, sanding, more filing, sanding, cutting, filing, and more sanding.

The engine was the longest part. That took more nearly 6 hrs. The engine I'm working on now is on 8 hrs and 6 Advil
