Building Model Cars.

As a lot of men my age I built model cars when I was 10 or so years old. And just like so many others I got out of it when my interest in girls peaked. 
Now at the age of sixty I have returned to building model cars. that's not to say I have lost interest in women I just can't remember why they are so interesting.
The first thing I had to do was figure out where I was going to build these models. Then I had to purchase certain tools, paints, glues and etc. Once that was done I was ready to go. I believe that's a 65 Chevy Impala sitting there.
And then I had to purchase a Paint Booth for painting the models. Once this was done I was ready to start building.
More to come as we build models together. 

The paints I use, at present, are simple spray paint cans. I use everything from Tamiya, Model Master and even Dupli Color paints. I even use Color Place Primer and Krylon paints that you can buy at Wal-Mart for very little.
I do have an Air-Brush and Compressor but we will get into that later this summer.
I use pastel paints and enamel paints in jars.
We will make use of lacquers but we need a very good primer coat as the Lacquer will eat some plastics.

We are about building models so I have posted some I have built this past year.

And last but not least the one I am currently working on.

OK, that's it for now.
