Where's the barn? Just kidding. That's pretty realistic. When I first pulled up the link I thought I got misdirected because it looked so real.

I thought about doing this with a 67 shelby 350 kit I have two of. I have been building models for 45 years. Even for a few museums.

Now thatís Cool Keith. Iíve been building models myself for about as long. Iíve got Mustang and Shelby models that I put away and Iím going to get back out to display once we get into our office. I even replicated paint marks, undercarriage detail etc, even back in the 80ís, 90ís.

Right now Iím building the huge 1/8 scale 67 GT500 by DeíAgostini.

Well done diorama. I'm working toward my own on a desert highway. The roll of cork board arrived a couple days ago. Will need to spray paint it flat black and do the yellow lines. That 68 Shelby diorama is quite impressive.

Iím not into model trains but that would look so cool next to a model train set going around someoneís garage or basement.  Scaled down a bit of course...

Rusty fiberglass. You're right. Doesn't make sense.

I'm in my early 50's, but I bet a lot of you remember the Monogram Tom Daniels kits.  I built a Boot Hill Express, made a small cemetary with a barren tree with a hangman's noose in it. You probably remember this one.

Oh my goodness, LOLOL, you bet I remember that one. You remember the Old Monogram Red Baron
Kit? Itís another Tom Daniels kit, I built that one way back in the 70ís.

MAN, that has to rank up there in my favorites!!

How about the Plymouth ďCop OutĒ? Remember the whole front had to be painted silver and try to not to have paint past the part-line. Man, those are some GREAT times!!
