Hey Tim, those are really neat. Is that first one a life size model, or is it the way the picture was taken?It looks like a real midget with a model driver!!

Yeah, neat stuff Tim. The pic of the Midget looks like it's just sitting there in the driveway of someone's house. Upon enlarging it, it's only then that I realize it's sitting on a table! I loved building model cars, I probably have about 75 Figure Eighters that I built long ago down in storage somewhere. Thanks for sharing.

Cool models Tim, I dig the white #3 late model. Great work, I haven't built models in a long time. Used to enjoy doing it. Just don't have the maual dexterity any more. If you have more have I hope you'll share them.

Thanks for the comments guys , The midget in the 1st pick is a 1/18 scale that I picked up at a swap meet a couple years ago.It was a GMP kit that they dont make anymore. The roll bars are hand made from coat hanger wire. The second car is a 64 ford Galaxy.The roll bars are from a early NASCAR kit, but if you look at the wheels they are spun aluminum turned on my lathe. YesI have a small machine shop in my basement.

The first two shots are of my shop." The man cave" as the wife puts it .The third shot is a Tobias Chassis car w/ a 35 chevy sedan body I cut the pillers out to show off some more of the interior. This one is not done yet I am trying to fit the 410 C/I sprint car engine.
The last one is a 36 chevy coupe on a troyer chassis. Thanks again for looking TIM
