I've been out of the modeling game for awhile now, haven't been on here since I dont know when. My little brother just gained interest in model cars so my interest was sparked again. Saw the new group build was some kind of hot rod and thought that'd be perfect to get back into the show.

I'll be starting off with an AMT 1936 Ford Coupe kit, not the greatest, especially after having it so long and losing some parts. Heres where it was left off 3 or 4 years ago..

And the new plans.... yea Im thinking rat rod. I really want to build a 1:1 rod for the simplicity of it, working on the tuner cars have me burnt out right now. But a scale version will have to do for now.

Took a few minutes to introduce the saw and the roof... they got along swimmingly. I'll wait for everything to set to work on filling it all in with more plastic. Trying to use the least amount of putty as I can.
