BUT IT WAS FUN!!!!! wasn't it. :P

I never did find out how fast it will go, still have it sitting in the barn under a tarp. :bg:  It has a 351 Windsor 4 Barrel Venturi carb that locks you in your seat till a let up on the gas, ALL THROTTLE, NO BOTTLE !!!! That is why it is being stored.

My father in law and I a rebuilding a 79 Chevy shortbox pickemup truck, with a built up 350 that will grab and go. :Woohoo:

I managed to get a good jump on my garage for thetow truck scene.......This will be all Board On Board Pole barn type contruction with a Lean too on the one side that will be a Bit more rustic yet (kind of a Low Budget afterthought)

Heres the 4 main walls so far





Yes, the shrunken boards (wider seams)were done On purpose.........

And finally heres a shot of the actual Flying Lizards Porsche that arrived fully sealed and surrounded by British Air;)..........SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!! :glad:

Todd-you are already familiar with 1:32 scale modeling, why not do trains in that scale?? That's some nice structure work. Keep it up.

Woodie, thanks......Ive already limited myself on amount of room..If i go larger it'll be even more difficult to do my portable so that it will sit on the shelf above the slot track.

Also, ive already invested in alot of 1/4" scale stuff so I'm going to have to stick with 1/48 for trains!!:thumb:

This Building will take some time to finish and detail....I'll probobly work on it a little here and a little there for the next 6-8 months before i call it 60% finished and place it on the slot track............I need to find some 1/32 detail parts from plastic kits etc to paint up...things like oh Engine parts etc......Plus your normal everyday stuff that would be around a small garage/shed like this...chains, Old signs (i just made some up last night)

Lots to do..............Still need to scratch some swing out Z brace doors for it too .

Amazing how much wood a little structure like this eats up!!!:Hmm:

Some signage for details......much weathering to do on these yet!!!

These were cut from an advertising auction magazine...they were then applied to .020 styrene with contact cement.

Todd-excellent work! You might check out a kit by ITALARIE(sp) called Field Tool Kit for 1:35 scale military. It has welding rig, compressor, various jacks, and tools and it is cheap...maybe 6 or 7 bucks. Tamiya also makes some great tool kits for 1:35 military..check them out. If you can't find them where you are, get to SQUADRON SHOP website, they have most everything available in 1:35-works fine for 1:32.

Good luck...Woodie

Bill, Ive seen those Kit's and would LOVE about 5 of each of them LOL

Chris, I havent run Lap 1 with the Porsche yet..:boohoo...............I need to install a Digital chip first and have been working on the garage as time permits :thumb:

I will get to the Porsche though:)

Worked on roof trusses yesterday. This will be a removeable roof. You can see the Jig I made for doing the trusses taped down to the Mat.

Gussets were added and then trimmed afterwards.

This roof will include the gable ends which will add more stability. the trim board will be glued to the gable and Slip Over the lower siding.

ot sure what I am goingto do for the roof yet..........probobly endup being done with whatever i have enough of on hand.....I'm thinking a rolled roofing for the main and a Corrugated for the Lean to addition which will be added afterwards as a Rustic add on..Solid back wall with a Knee wall on the long end, Open air above the knee wall . Rough Log Poles will be used for uprights and roof rafters.

I am also thinking about an Outside staircase that will lead up to a roof platform for a TV camera crew!!

Justneed to figure out how I'll do this with the removable roof!! :thumb:
