    i saw this webpage a few months back dedicated to the people who builds these large scale model cars that I believe was used by car companies at motor shows in the 50s/60s/70s.
    Stupid me, i did not book mark it, can anyone direct me to such a page again.

    Welcome to the site zoombie. I went and tried a search for what you were looking for and I came up blank. Were these models really large and only used at shows?

    hot Info Required ford - thanks for the welcome :)
    The models are quite large and I believe they were used in the show only (can't be 100% sure). They are quite rare as such the info is quite hard to find.
    The models are highly details, think of pocher but on a larger scale.

    I've seen those models, one in particular. It was the model of the Pontiac that the Batmobile was designed from. This model was exquisite and looked like it was made with real chrome.

    It was designed in 1954 with a 1/3 or 1/2 scale build and full size one was built in 1956. Pontiac Club De Mar: http://www.lilesnet.com/memories/pas...es/concep6.jpg

    [B]Guido, that's the one !!![/B] I couldn't remember what the model name was but Club De Mar is definitely it. The model I saw I believe was in 1/4 scale and it was silver. I remember how good it looked. I'm going to have to search the net for this one myself and see if I can find that old pic. Again, Guido, you've done it.

    Like Don said in the past.... I've got too much time on my hands and not enough build time. But I'm working on it.. It's a secret. I'll give you guys a little hint.... It'll be red, gold and black when it's done.
