    You know a place to post pics of your favorite scale vehicles no matter what scale they are (as long as you mention the scale that is :D )

    This is the place for your kitbashed,scratchbuilt and,or boxstock nicely painted,weathered or not cars and trucks both rail related and not.

    Here are two pics of my current HO project (actually just getting back into HO vehicles of the truckin' kind) to be used on my future HO switching layout.

    This 4dor is supposed to be a 1/64th diecast from Hotwheels but it scales out almost purrfectly for this 1/87th scale hauler.

    The chassis is an Athearn Freightliner 3 axle.This is going to be the tote truck for my clubs N scale modules.

    I have not decided on which wheels and tires to use or what to use for the trailer.Anybody care to offer suggestions?

    Cool idea Catt!
    OK...My HO scale NASCAR collection is growing. I do have something in the planning stages to include these on my layout.(A road race track next to the rails).
    These are from Winners Circle and bought at Wal-Mart.

    OK...Ok....
    Just so I don't get evil-mail from the Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson fans, here's a pic with their cars right.
    BTW...Here's a list of drivers I'd like to have. If anybody happens across them(The website hasn't been updated in a year) please LMK
    Dale Jarrett #88(of course)
    Martin Truex Jr. #1
    Jeff Burton #33
    Kevin Harvick #29
    Bobby Labonte #43
    Kyle Petty #45
    Tony Stewart #20
    Denny Hamlin #11

    The Wal-Mart here does have Kasey Kahne. I'll probably pick him up this week.

    Here's a couple that I have on my layout. All HO.
    Four hand livestock trailer from LoneStar. Quite pricey, but with the etched stainless steel sides it was worth it.
    A Roco Hummer. Painted in civilian colors. BTW. Thats a model of my house kitbashed from a City Classics Company house.
    A Busch "SUV", on the rack.

    Left is a stock except for the wheels Matchbox Utility truck,right is a semi tractor made with the cab of another Utility truck on a shortened Athearn chassis.I must have at least 10 of these trucks stashed away for bashing.
