Hi Guys,

Alan invited me to this forum - so here I am!

I'll put a couple posts in the road cars section and one in the race cars section to show some of my builds as a way of introducing myself to you.

I've been building models since the mid-1970's and tend to have a North American theme to my models as I grew up in Canada.  Hot rods and drag racing are my two favourite topics but I also like big rigs and European cars.

Cheers,

Jim

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the welcome.

I've put three threads in the finished works section now to finish my introduction - hope you like them!

I'm off to put some lacquer on some parts for a project now.

Cheers, Jim

Hey Jim, I'm so glad you signed up, you'll find the guys here are the greatest.

Jim and I bumped into each other a few times during the two or three years I was going to shows and knows all about the 'problems' I had with IPMS!!

Anyway, that's history and I just know you are going to love his builds. Check out his 40Ford!!

It was Jim that sent me the images of my Model A police Car in Model Cars Mag.
