Are There Any Scale Modelers Out There?

Do we have any scale modelers out there? With the thousands of car fans we have reading our blogs, we must have some scale modelers who’d love to see their handi-work on our pages here.

I know it’s been a long, weird winter, weather-wise. And I know some of you haven’t had an opportunity to work on your real rides. So how about working on a scale model? I know plenty of car folks who love to dabble in this hobby, especially when the weather shuts you up indoors. Here in Florida, we have an “opposite season” thing happening. The summertime keeps many people indoors, keeping cool with the A/C on max. Time to bring out the plastic kits and get to work!

For me, the desire to work on model kits comes in waves. I’ve gone years without building anything, and then there are days where I can’t wait to get home to indulge in my hobby.

Here are a collection of photos we’ve found around the Internet. Some are so well done – inspiring!

Love the box artwork. The artists who do these graphics get it – they understand the “classic car vibe”. Remember the excitement you felt as a kid, picking that box off the shelf, imagining all those fresh new parts inside, and what you were going to create? Great memories that last a lifetime. You get extra points if you built a model with your son or daughter – you helped pass along a great tradition to the next generation.

How about you? There’s a comments section at the end of this blog. You can chime in, and even upload a photo of your current project. Please do!
