    I have decided to make a thread of just my works. I am no good on build threads as I start and get tunnel vision on the project. I will add the link to where I got the model (may have to do that in edit later). I messed around with simple models , not many, and then I saw the USS Arizona from Digital Navy, Ships, and decided I had to build it. It was my first "real" paper model. I have two wooden ships that took years to complete (post pictures of those later.

    USS Arizona.

    A friend of mines father served on the USS Porter DD 356 during WWII, it was sunk out from under him. We found it on the net and ordered it and I built it for him. His father had lots of stories from that time.

    Padre these are all VERY impressive but I spotted something in the last picture you posted - that die cast Corvair... Where did you get it? It's either a '62 or a '63 right? Father's Day is coming up and my father in law would flip if he got one of those...
    Really, the paper models are wonderful too!

    Wow, what a collection. I wish I could finish what I started. Very inspirational.The Corvair in one of the photos would make a nice paper model.

    Beautiful, Padre! As one builder to another, when I look at other people's builds I do the same as I do with my own--look for the mistakes. Not many to see on yours!

    The Corvair model came from Sun Star, I found a link here http://www.modelcars.com/sunstar.php. Prices are higher than I remember paying. No one has a model in the original color of Corona Creme (only came in that color in "62), I had to repaint the model to match the color on my "62.
