Post of what you are working on. Works in progress only. I seem to alway have a least two projects going on at the same time.

Here are mine:
This dark red Maisto Cobra is taking a stripping bath and going to get a coat of Competition Orange as Maisto won't do one.


This was a Revell '65 Springtime Yellow Mustang Coupe. If you recall, I had a blue 'vert that "crumbled" on me, so I am combining the two to have a yellow vert. The interior had been carpeted already.

I'm currently converting a Ford Focus into a Ford Focus RS, changing the colour to black too. It's a Bburago base and it so far has a carpetted interior and donor Z8 wheels (also from Bburago). I'll show pics as soon as I have any! :cheers

Got four or so, in the pipeline. My organizational skills are "advanced clutter".

I'm working on, clockwise from upper left; putting a Shelby Collectibles GT-350 chassis underneath a Road Signature 1965 Falcon (partially obscured by ZipLoc full of spare parts); converting a Baldwin Motion Big Block 1970 Nova to a Small Block road racer, complete with rollcage; a Kyosho Lancia Stratos repaint; and a PYE Big Block Camaro into an IMSA GTX road racer.



And here's what the rest of the shop looks like, donors are all on the shelves above, plus some "resting" customs on the lower shelves.











:cheers

My current work is to do a good replica of the red '84 Ferrari 288 GTO, better than the elite series, with a more real look.

Hi Matt

Yes that is your trailer. I am nearly ready to put it together, but I am looking at a way to make it so that I can "snap-it" together, so I don't have to glue it. That way I can ship it "flat" and then you can assemble it yourself.

I'll keep you posted.

Peter
