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.

Actually that's half the fun for me around here when you guys realize I'm not one of you.

Ok get back to your tiny creations, they are awesome!

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.

Yay!!

Franklin is building something and taking pictures again!!

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!

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.......

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

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......

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)

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



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. The little front suspension next to it adds to the realism!

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?
