    Very nice array of cars. I'm a 1/32 scale guy but acknowledge how nice the selection of bodies is at 1/24 because of all the model kits to choose from. Plus, all the decal sets out there for these cars. Except for the now basically extinct Revell SnapTite kits there isn't a lot available in my scale.

    I love your modifieds and bet they are a ton of fun to race.

      Very, very, cool - and nicely built! If you're looking for more body styles just look at the current selection of 1/24-25 model kits. You can get very good deals just by looking around at the model shows. Don't forget your 40-50% discount coupons for the "big box hobby stores. It's a good way to get the newer released kits on the cheap.
      I'm jealous, I don't have the time to do the 1/24 oval track club racing that I did in that past. Have a great time racing those awesome cars, and... Enjoy! -- Ernie :>)

        Ernie, I think I got the models pretty well covered. I have been buying a few here and there. REL13 Click image for larger version

          Your cars make me feel like I chose the wrong scale (HO)...Great cars!

            great stuff, I hope you got a couple guys that like running with you for fun. Those old brass chassis cars make fun racing. We have lots of H&R and FCR chassis under our cars. I do lots of cutting and soldering on them. I am doing all new builds with the LVJ frames. Even though they are really for 1/32, they are great for 1/24 scratch building. You can get them in brass and 1 inch wide or the same width as a womp. I like to take the 1 inch wide and solder a piece of square tubing at each side of the frame from front to back. Add a brass pan underneath. You have good, low weight, a strong reinforced frame with the square tubing and a nice place to push in your wire bumpers at the front and rear with the brass tubing. I'll do some pix to add later.

              Man that is IT!!

              The Study makes me grin. But it is the creativity in those that is top shelf.

              That all of those kits. We needed to remind the newcomers of these nailed it!

                  When I stand near the shelves, boxes and stacks of model kits stored in the basement, I wonder if I'll ever be able to start building proper models again. I've been doing nothing but hardbody slot cars with kits since the mid 1980s. Now, it's HO racing for me 3-4 nights a week. Maybe on Saturday, November 9th you could come to our annual MODEL CAR CHALLENGE here on Long Island, presented by the Long Island Auto Replica Society (LIARS) of which I am a long time member. It's the largest model car show in NY state and has been running for almost 30 years. We usually have around 250-350 model cars, trucks, and motorcycles on the display tables, and we've had as many as 500 attendees in the past. This is an automotive themed event, without the usual military, sci fi, figures, ect. that you would see at the general plastic model shows. The location is easily accessible from the parkways and about a 30-40 minute drive from the Throggs Neck/Whitestone bridges. Check out the club's website <> for full info. Please, PM me if you like, I'd love to meet another racer from the northeastern region. I have a 24 foot vendor set up at this show. Oh yeah, there are also two judged slot car classes, with trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each. Bring down some of your racing buddies and enter some of your cars in the contest!
                  Looking forward, Ernie :>)

                    BIG E, I think I talk to you at Bob Beers show last year. When you walk into the show you were on the left in the corner. I got some 1/32 models from you. I think 1 was a 65 Mustang. REL13

                      That's correct, my friend, same spot I've had at that show for 30 years!
                      I'm one of the original six vendors at Bob's Super Bowl show.
                      I'll have the 1/32 1960 Thunderbird hardtops and 1963 Corvette Sting Ray coupes, also from AMT, at the Long Island model car show next Saturday, and at the Parsippany slot car show on the 17th..
                      Please check the PM I sent you today. Looking forward... Thanks, Ernie :>)
