    When I was young I used to say "[I]When I grow up I'm going to be somebody!"
    I now realize I should have been more specific.

    I've been working on this "Termite Candy" build as time allows and obviously will not have it completed by the contest end. So here's my unfinished entry.......

    The chassis and engine are from the 1/12th Lindberg Fiat dragster kit, functional IRS, IFS and steering.

    The stage coach body was fabricated from balsa & bass wood. Wheels etc. are modified parts from various kits.

    HI Folks
    Here is my entry for the contest. It is a Pocher Alpha that I spent the better part of a year building. The paint was originally mat train paint (to find the vintage color) that I then clear coated and buffed. It has a real leather interior and many upgrades. I have also included shots of the next project a Mercedes 500 and also my current project of a Bugatti.( note the Mercedes has a real mother of pearl SMC show/contest finished photos dash and custom glove leather.
    Note I could only drag my pix into this window not the lower one I hope this works!

    Hi everybody! Here I show 1/8 scale model of a Jaguar XK120. Engine and wheels are cast-offs from the Monogram Jaguar XKE kit. The frame consists of brass, the body of fibreglass and epoxy SMC show/contest finished photos resine with inner structures of printed circuit board. Steering and suspension work, but the model finally got so heavy, that is has to be supported by some pieces of acryl.
    The body surely has some faults, but I built it 35 years ago, aided just by some pictures (there was no internet then). It's original was created by shaping a log of dense foam (nowadays known as Styrodur) and covering it with 2k automotive putty SMC show/contest finished photos ( + lots of grinding). Grille and headlight bezels are made out of brass, the bumpers have been "electroplated" in silicone molds using carbonic spray and a copper plating kit. All metall parts bear a coat of nickel.
    Regards from Germany

    This is Tamiya SMC show/contest finished photos `s Sherman m4,which I modified into Israeli super Sherman,with longer barrel and counter weight on the turret.The tank is radio controlled with full function unit and sound.For realistic driving I added an inertia devise,which makes acceleration and slowing down smoother,rather then jerky motion of a toy.
