Custom Mike Models
WIP - 1938 Custom Ford Van
This one's the Lindberg kit, I picked some up at Ollie's while they were good and cheap. It's got a gorgeous chassis and suspension, along with great rims and a sharp looking engine and interior. No idea of a color yet, but I am considering some kind of Candy Yellow....we'll see!

Custom Mike Models
1957 Chevy "Spirt of '57"
This is the Model King re-issue of the old MPC kit, and it's still a real pain to get it looking good. I had a severely warped chassis in mine, so I had to scratch-build a new chassis from the firewall back. Lots of fit issues, but those killer decals are still there! I painted mine House Of Kolors Oriental Blue over Dupli-Color Candy Silver, added foil and Molotow Liquid Chrome markers, and a Fatkidd Hobby Products pre-wired distributor, along with a resin coil and MSD style ignition box to the firewall. The firewall has a engine-turned decal from PRP Scale Decals. Contact Juan F. Sierra on Facebook if you want some of 'em for yourself!

Custom Mike Models
WIP - The El Monte
This is my first build back after a 10 month layoff due to a shoulder injury i incurred on July 13th 2015.I'm still not 100%, but I've got the IPMS Nationals in August to attend, and I need a new build, so I'll suffer through a bit of pain.

It started with someone posting a picture on Facebook of a 1:1 Monte Carlo/El Camino custom, and I knew I had to make a model of it. It may not be my idea, but I'll at least be the first to make a model of it! A slight modification is needed though, the only '73-77 El Camino kit available is in resin, and I'm not gonna pay $60 to hack it up, so an '84 El Camino will have to do.

My tire & rim stash, and any other various stuff I want to add
All of the extra rims, tires and wheel backs I've accumulated over the years. I needed to post some pics of some tires for a buddy on Scale Avenue, so I made an Album just for Tim! Now it takes all kinds of pics I don't want to make a folder for.

1965 Chevy Pickup & Hemi Hydro - Toney's Tribute Truck
This one is a replica of a model that a good friend of mine built as a Forum Project on Scale Avenue prior to his unfortunate passing after a battle with cancer on July 14th, 2014. Toney was a great guy, and a very talented builder who made everyone he came in contact with feel like a lifelong friend, and he is dearly missed. I hope you like it Toney, it's the least I could do to honor ya brother!

WIP - 1957 Chevy - Spirit of '57
Model King's re-issue of the old MPC Spirit of '57 kit. I built this one many, many times as a kid, and never got it right. This time, it will come out looking good!

Kit Decals
Scans or pictures of the decal sheets from various kits, no rhyme or reason attached, I just had pics of the first two laying around and felt the need to do something with them! I'll add more in as they get scanned...

WIP - 1967 Nickey Camaro SS/RS 427
Revell's latest version of their new '67 Camaro kit, and it's pretty sweet! Plans are for some mild detailing, definetly a Fatkidd Distributor in there, and some other stuff. Tamiya paints all the way because I actually want to get it done quickly, Mica Blue is the color choice, and possibly a set of the new AMT Goodyear Polyglass tires if they'll fit, because they're so damn good looking!
