Griffin PNP
So, my next project completed (which Tyler is also doing) is a Auto Transport Trailer. Which is one I did as a teenager to display all my car models on, it will hold 6. Took several months to complete, so kept me busy.
**************************************************************
In between pauses on the above, and for a change of pace, I took the bomb trailer from the B-17G, and glued the ground crew to it. Notice the cigarette in one crew members hand, wrenches in two others?

1968 Shelby GT-500 Mustang

Closest I could get to the family 1964 1/2, this was a fun kit.

Still learning though, back in the day, I used to wire the engines, not up to that level again yet.

Will have to fabricate a hood scoop by hand later.

First car to go on the carrier above. Five more to go...

**************************************************************

My display area is getting filled in. The auto transporter is at the top of the book case next to my chair (with first car in it), wouldn't fit on a shelf below, especially once I complete and add a tractor trailer.
The B17-g had to go over on the TV stand as we don't have any shelves large enough for it and my attempt to hang it from my floor lamp was unsuccessful, could only balance as a nose dive.

**************************************************************

This is the full size model of a Klingon Bird of Prey (half as big as the Voyager model) that Sheri sent my as a present (thank you very much, hon). It was fun and as all my models do was a great diversion. Presented in attack mode, had to chose flight or attack, which is amazing in that the previous miniature one has movable wings. The green and red are accurate, but taking a broad color license with the rest that no respectable Klingon would care about. "Just give me a functioning weapon, colors are for a taghwl'..."
This is my favorite craft out the Star Trek world, I never really liked any of the Enterprises (except for the NX1), the only Federation ship that fit my sense of design was the Voyager, followed by the USS Reliant (ST2 Wraith of Khan).

**************************************************************

This was an show truck that I remember from '60's. Kit came with two canopies, dark and clear or just a bed cover.

Entry/exit was through the nose of the cab. Facilitated by a mid engine layout.

Difficult model to put together because the parts were fragile, actually broke rear and front springs fitting them in. Did as much repair work as real work. Plus the yellow did not lend itself to touch up well.

But, as always, enjoyed it...

Second car on my auto transport trailer, top of my display bookcase.

**************************************************************

This is the booklet that came with the model of the actual truck.

**************************************************************

Next I'm going to be doing the actual semi that is going to be pulling my auto transport trailer. Which will show up on page 3 of my hobby pages, so stay tuned in.
