Hot scale.

I was just checking out LowTech, which I cruise almost daily, and I came across a post about 1:8 scale model cars, which reminded me of my own collection of models from the late fifties and early sixties. When i was a kid, I used to live for my models, and my fiance can attest to the many boxes taking up room in the attic that I absolutely forbid her to get rid of. 
I have most of my fathers models, or at least the ones that survived his younger brothers BB gun when he went to the service in the mid sixties, and even though most of them are either in disrepair or were never finished to begin with, I really love what kids of an earlier generation than my own ideas were as far as customizing.


  1. thanks for the link! cool collection indeed. haha I know what you're talking about, those scale models are always a controversial subject in a relationship :-)
