I built literally hundreds and have 2-3 boxes of a few partially started and several never opened kits left so when my knees and back wont let me work on or drive my car I can still 'return to my youth'. Most of mine met with a demise in the form of 2" or cherry bomb fireworks. We (my friends and I) also used some of the friction drive cars to 'customize'(the favorite was the '50's Studebaker. One model that will be built will be the 1/12 scale Model A my wife gave me 3-4 years ago - and hope it turns out looking like my '31.

Those of Jays - he pictured some a few years ago somewhere - beyond my imagination and skills!!!
