    Welcome to the site 3 Star. I'm looking forward to see what you do with the K 82. That's the kind of stuff we live and breathe for here .

    Hi all
    My name is GŁnther, I live in vienna (Austria). I`m 52 years old - and I know, my english is not the best. I started modellbuilding as a boy (don`t know what age exactly) with building houses for my modelltrain. Than I start building what I get - historical ships, plaines, military vehicles etc. After this I loose interrest - you know, the first girlfriend - the first car - the first motorcycle - disco and all this stuff. Then, I`ve got a birthday-present from my first wife before our son was born in the early 80`s - a wooden HMS-Victory kit. I never finished it. After this I change to the 1/1 Introduce Yourself car section and built a replica of the Alfa-Romeo Monza (like Xken`s). I`ll show some pic`s in the real-car section soon. The love for the modellcars came back and I built a lot of vintage cars in 1/24. In the meantime I bought my first Harley and made a lot of money with my airbrush Introduce Yourself -works. 1993 I started tattooing. 2002 I quit my job as a paramedic for a fulltime Tattooartist. Now - a second Harley and two wifes later - I`ll be more than glad to be a member of this great site.
    Thank you all, for sharing your knowledge with us gluebomber
    regards - little gŁ

    My name is Cameron, and I am fairly new to modeling. As most kids do, I built models when I was young. I never finished one, or painted one properly. Abotu 6 months ago, I picked up a couple of 1/24 scale models to take me away from my outrageously expensive RC hobby. I was instantly hooked. I still havent finished any, but I am making progress on several.

    I remembered my dad had a couple of old large scale models, and went digging through his storage. I found the Monogran 1/12 57 Chevy, and the 1/8 65 Corvette Stingray. Both need some TLC.

    I hope to learn many things here, and I am in awe at the models I have seen from you guys.

    Hey Cameron. Glad to have you here. Looks like you found some gold in your dad's stash. Bring them out and have a go. If you need help with the resurrection, give us a holler.

    Whatever help you need, don't hesitate to ask. If the original builder used tube glue, I've heard some of the guys say to put it into the freezer for a while and the glue will chip off easily. I've never tried it myself but others swear by it. Another thing we could do is score the joints with a #11 blade until you cut through. In any case, we'll give you all the info you need to build a great restoration.

    I have been a long time street rodder, & was published in the seminal Bob Ames book: Vintage Model Race Cars, which is the whole history of tether car racing. These cars ran .6" C.I., 10cc, 2 stroke motors, in cars that weighed about 6#. They were attached to a center pole with heavy piano wire & ran on a 70' dia circle. Before WWII, they ran around 70 MPH, & hit a max of 156 MPH by the mid-1950's. I have been reproducing the last production car, the Dooling Brothers Arrow, making various parts for it after the intial run in the early '90's, of 30 complete kits. It has been mainly a collectors market since the '80's. The sport has experienced a small resurgence in running the cars again, due to the reactivation of some vintage classes by the American Miniature Race Car Association, since the architecture changed in the 70's. You can find out a lot more by going to their website at www.AMRCA.com. I do have a couple of webpages on their links pages, showing some of the parts I make. I am very interested in the history of these cars, tracks, and the people that built and ran them. I would love to discuss anything you have on this subject!

    Hey oldcarman. Glad you signed up with us. Tether cars are definitely an area that could use some more exposure. Like Don says, go ahead and post all you want. We're a very user friendly site. :)'

    As the title says i have been away from the site for 12 months or so but have now started building again.
    I was retrenched from my job of 18 years in dec 2007 and at 53 i thought it would be hard to find another job but as things happened a Hobby Shop opened at the same time just 1KM from my place and i have been working there since Jan 2008.
    I am now in the process of finishing my 32 ford which was started back in 2007(i didnt realise it has been that long ago).I will post picture as i go in my original thread,Aussie 32.
    Catch you all later
