So I finally got around to working on that coupe body I had started last year. Lets just say that I was inspired by the diamonds in the rough that you guys do miracles with, only mine is still very rough. Not sure if its even restoration material at this point! I have a few more details to add but this is where I am right now.

Do you sell these cars?
If you have a collection I would love to see a pic of them all together on how you display them.

I haven't sold one yet although I have folks starting to inquire. Not sure about selling because its still a hobby for me and I have a lot of time invested in them. I have maybe 12-13 "custom" builds, that is ones that are not kit-based. I have them in a studio that my wife and I share. I'll get pic of them all lined up at some point-just need to get around to it.

Thank you both for the great words!

Yay!!:dancing:

Franklin is building something and taking pictures again!!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

I love all of your builds Franklin! I have somewhat of a twisted sense of humor, and I show the guys at work your "cars"....get them talking about how cool they are, then totally blow their mind when I show them that they are scale models!:funny::funny:

They are truly blown away (as am I)!!

Then of course one of them (usually a guy named Jose) will make a comment that you have built several, and he has yet to see me complete one.......:huh::huh:

Anyway, love this "new" one. Very nice! As always:clapping::clapping:

LOL!-Thanks. Got a chuckle out of that and appreciate you sharing the story. This forum is great! I am really a closet volksrodder-only the RC scale allows me to at least finish what I start and take up as little space as possible. Maybe one day I will wrestle with a full size car......:sawzall:

Hey Franklin,

So I had to clean out my trailer today (need to put two cars in there instead of one - hiding them from my HOA):finger::yelling::finger:

I had mentioned that I would show you a pic of my baja, so here he is. This is Jesse:

http://i1175.photobucket.com/albums/...hCamera290.jpg

He is my first car, had him for a few years (ok, a lot longer than that)

One of these days, I will finish him, but for right now, other projects take priority.

Thanks for sharing, Keith! That looks like a nice solid ride there-prob a lot of fun to drive too. I did not see a build thread but if you have time-would like to know more details. HOA's suck-but that's a whole 'nother thread.

Nice Baja, and it looks sooo real. :huh: The little front suspension next to it adds to the realism!:dancing::dancing::grin:

Yeah, for a first attempt it is only OK. Franklin is the master at making them look real! Maybe my next one will turn out better? :Idunno:
