Scratch Building is?

The so-called "season" is upon us. For the die hard slotter it's just a change in temps.

But newcomers arrive during this time.

I think that this year is a perfect time to show some of them what is possible in our scale if modeling isn't a stumbling block.

We all like many ready to run releases, but for those of you that build, you know the fun it brings.

So feel free to post all your builds. New or old. Remind all of us what scratch building brings :)

The two shoe boxes in the center lane are fantastic / outstanding rides.
The Monte with the cool back window bring back some good memory. :auto-driving:

I've been working on a Monogram Surtees Lola. Neat looking cars, but they didn't run that great.So I've been modifying the one I have. The right gear ratio is a little hard to get right. Nothing a Dremel with a cutter bit wouldn't take care of. I had thought about a scratch built brass chassis but the original plastic one will suffice for now.

Most of my building involves matching up orphan bodies with chassis modified to fit, and trying to make toys run fast and smooth enough to race. I have done a few model kits just to run around the track.

This is going to be one HUGE piece of bandwidth. I just counted the photos I want to put on here, and there's 30 of them, after I tossed out a lot. I will go back and kick out some more and post them later.
