Here are some of the model cars I built. I usually give them to the drivers or families of the drivers who drove them. Not big on the mega-details, but I just try to make them look like the original cars.

This first one I built for Blu Plemons when he was inducted into the CARC Hall Of Fame in 2008.

This one I built for Bob Land. It's the Mike Barney #9 that he drove in 1969-70. Numbers were done by Scott Backman (who also did the Blu Plemons car).http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=958&thumb=1 ('http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=958')

This one I built for Don Wilson when he was a special guest at the High Plains Modifieds banquet. He subsequently paid me to build one for John Pachello. Numbers here were also done by Scotty Backman.http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=957&thumb=1 ('http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=957')

And this is my latest creation, built for Bob Harrington. I couldn't find a 3-window coupe body that wasn't chopped, but Bob didn't seem to care. Numbers were done by Rick Wasilko. http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=955&thumb=1 ('http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=955')

Clean and uncluttered . . . This one's :cheers: for you :checker:

Hey, Paul! Your models are very detailed and crisp. Didn't you build several models for Gene Corley...#89 coupe or whatever # coupe / sedan he was in at that moment? If so, I sure hope you have some photos to share with us. ~VB

Hi, Buzz! :dork:Actually, I've got a model of Gene Corley's #89 Champion Western car from 1968 ready to go except the graphics. Rick Wasilko was working on them when he went on to his final reword. That bucking bronco is tough to get the details on. I'll try to work on it with my software that I bought specifically for these projects. I still don't know how to work it. Thanks for the comments, though! Paul

Here's the #29 Sammy Gallo coupe I built for his daughter, Carol. She has to hide it from her brother, Sammy Lee, when he visits from California so he doesn't steal it! http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=967&thumb=1 ('http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=967')

And the #07 car that Glenda Bredeson commissioned me to build for Theron. It took a LONG time. Check out the chassis. . . I had to scratchbuild every single frame rail and piece of the roll cage individually. Quite a project, but boy it came out nice!http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=966&thumb=1 ('http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=966') http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=965&thumb=1 ('http://autoracingmemories.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=158&pictureid=965')

These are super-cool Paul. The only one I've seen was Blu's #4 on the old CRM. Great to see these others you've done. About a year or so ago I ran into Blu at a Mexican restaurant on 38th and he was talking about this cool little model you had made for him.

Nice build. Really clean. Wasn't there a number 3 five-window too.

For this number 3 car, did you use the newer Revell/Monogram '32 Ford3-window Coupe issue or the older Monogram Rockin' Rods Li'l Deuce Coupe '32 Ford. If it was the Rockin' Rods '32, did you use a separate frame or cut the fenders from the frame/fender assembly that it comes with.

Hi Paul,

Very nice work...What kind of time investment do you involve in each production. I really think you do a great job.

I have to many hobbies to begin one more but do admire the models.

The #07 model that Paul built for us will be treasured forever. Especially since shortly after we received the model the car was totalled at CNS. Thanx Paul

Hey, Paul! This is probably one of your photos from the old ARM site? Can't wait to see your photos of Gene Corley's #89 model. ~VB

Yes, there was both a 5-window and a 3-window, white coupe, in the 60's owned by Tommy Pryor and driven by Bob Harrington at Lakeside as well as the other tracks in Colorado. The candy stripe #3 was kind of a trademark of those cars. The bodies were fiberglass reproductions and were crafted by Tommy as he had made molds to reproduce them. The 6 cylinder Ford was the engine of choice at the time. Later, when the overhead V-8s were allowed in the CARC, Tom and I built a car utilizing a 302cu Ford engine and the 5-window, which he dug out of his back yard. and used the same white paint and candy striped #3 number style. The body is still being used on a Mod-coupe with the CARC today! Not sure what ever happened to the 3-window.

Hi, Thomas! Yes, I used the Monogram '32 Ford 3-window. I got the Ford straight-6 engine from Ken Kitchen (Kitchen Table Resins) in Colorado Springs. He sells on the internet. Thanks for the comments! Paul

Hello, Chuck! My favorite ones to model are the early '32 Ford coupes or Vickies that ran with flathead V-8's. I use the AMT kit that was re-released in 2007 and can build one of those up in about 4-5 evenings of work. I can get the bodies painted quickly but have to wait on decals. I really need to figure out my software and make my own. I installed this software and went to the instructions. Got the message: "Want to print out instructions?". I said "Yes" and it said "Now printing page 1 of 87". I cancelled it. Holy cow! But maybe I should step up and print it all so I can figure it out. Thanks for the kind comments! Paul:banghead:

I think Morris "Moose" Jackson also drove a maroon #29 in the 50's, Morris and Norm Engbloom were real good buddies, I think Norm was a CARC official, and had driven a couple different cars as well.

When I saw this great modeling work of #3, I thought of Johnny Habberman's copper colored "32 Ford 5-window street rod that was used for a trophy car once in a while.

Thomas, I remember Johnny Habberman's deuce 3 window. Always wondered what ever happend to it. He'd park it in the infield during time trials, then get it the heck outa there before the races started. Was that when he was part of the flagging crew?

On the Mo Jackson car, believe he always drove #65. Remember it as a '34 3 window, light blue with a cream spear and circle graphics with the number inside the circle. He and Norm Englbom went into the used truck business sometime in the sixties.

Johnny was the lightman and assistant flagman at the time he was there.

Morris told me about the #29 car, he had a car dealership at the time (early 60's) on South Federal Boulevard Avenue between West Virginia Avenue and West Center Avenue, across from some cement company at West Custer Place.

Here si the Early Years Resin Cast (http://www.freewebs.com/earlyyearsresin/index.htm) link.

Down the left side are links to Early Years products, gallery, and other resources. Note: Resin cast bodies and parts require care and patience.



I realize that Revell is re-releasing the re-issued Monogram '30 Ford Model 'A', but if the body is all that is needed . . .
Here is photo of Early Years resin cast '30 Ford Model 'A'. Go to the body link of Early Years to see the price.
