  • Full size car model display - very cool

    OK, so its NOT Studebaker, but its a cool display and old cars, so I
    am sure many will appreciate the effort put into this. - Tom

    http://www.flatheadv8.org/v8bob/carshow.htm

    A lot of effort went into making this. Ed had the idea and my '40 was picked because most of the big parts are black (DP 90) and is still a project, so it was posible to use the fenders, running boards, etc. without too much trouble. We both have the actual model, mine being built in 1960, the issue year. Anyway, I don't see how we can ever top this one! The table display is a 1/25th scale of everything in the actual "big" display, including flathead and nailhead engines, all six club cars, paint bottles, brush, X-acto knife, etc. The only item not correct is the '48 Chevy model, painted to look like the '39 DeSoto hemi-powered club car.

                That's very creative...good thing it's not mine. From what I remember of my modeling days, the glue would be all over the chrome, the paint would be knocked over and the X Acto knife would be covered in blood.

                    Gee, Ernie, your model work sounds like mine. My Mum wouldn't allow any of my models out of my room or in sight of the door because of the... fingerprints.

                    Yeah, Tom, that's proof of the adage, "the only difference between men and boys is the size of their toys!"

                    They did a superb job on the '1/1 model'

                        To this day I'm not good with glue. I did the interior on my Avanti and it's pure luck that I didn't end up permanently fastened to the "B" Pillar!
