Guys, I have been working on this for 4 hours, (of course, my kids could do this in 5 minutes while playing a video game, tap dancing, typing into a phone, and eating supper. I hope it doesn't crash the site, but here it is. It is all scratchbuilding and modelling. This is edited down from twice as many images- it was getting redundant.

These are all great builds!!! Everyone of them!

I have to say though - for sheer tenacity to do it all, Clive is just short of probably refining his own petroleum products to make his molds and resins. That is seriously a ground-up build!

Totally agree.
Transferring print dimensions to a block of wood to make a buck for a mold for a body.....that is completely old school craftsmanship without a doubt.

And a beautiful result!

Great photos all, nice work on your group Rob.

Watching guys like Strangebrew is fascinating. He makes most everything himself and the effort pays off.

Prime example. A box filled with cars you just can't buy. All bodies/chassis and most decals all hand made.

Keep it going... :auto-checkeredflag:

Nice looking cars guys!!

I hadn't realize how many I have built over the years until I took the pictures. For some reason some of the pictures are getting cut off.

Jeff, that's exactly what happened to me! I originally had 30 some-odd, then 55, then I gave up and made that collage with what would fit.

By the way, that Plymouth Savoy is still my favorite.
