Me building a Model-T Ford. This picture was taken in 1959.

Model is finished
All my life I have built miniatures. They have, for some reason, facinated me. So, it should stand to reason I would get involved in building model cars. Actually, I began building model cars around 1958 and have never stopped. My father hated plastic. He thought plastic was just a fad. But he still bought models for me.

In my basement I have created, what I call the "Car Corner". I have collected many things over the years that have to do with cars and trucks. Many of these things are in the Car Corner. But this is also a place that I can highlight my model collection. I owned a hobby shop that I ran from 1995 untill 1999. So I got many models while I had the store.

Here's a few examples from my collection. Sorry about the dust, they are in the basement after all.

This is the area in my basement where all of my models are displayed. I have a 6-room basement so I am lucky to have the space for all of my collections

This 1955 Mercedes Benz Gullwing has never been out of a case. I built this car about 35 years ago. The case that it's in is a regular model car display case but I have installed a turn table from a microwave oven. This allows the car to constantly turn slowly. The car has an opening trunk, doors and hood. It displays very well with it's information board and many trophies.
