That's a nice little saw Tom, I don't think you need help at all, you should be able to manage a whole sheet of plascard in that on your own.

Pic #12: Very excited to get the "Crepe Mobile"!

Bob turned me on to the "hpiguys Workshop" YouTube channel where you can see this kit being built: Youtube Video. I've always wanted this kind of kit and the video sealed the deal even though it is spendy.


If you've not seen this channel definitely give it a look. He's for sure given me some of my model building mojo back with his simple but effect approach to building and painting, and having fun. Very enjoyable to watch!

WARNING: Watching this channel will result in you buying more kits.

I want one of these now as well. I recently ran across a real one at the St. Petersburg (FL) pier being used as a coffee vendor. The owner let me take a bunch of pics 🙂

Strangely, during the Pandemic one of these has shown up at a park space near where my mum lives in a purely residential area. and even more odd is that it is a Crepe wagon. That's random enough in the UK, but to see it in a residential area is another level of weird.

on the finish line of my "General Lee", the paint started cracking. The body was done - paint, chrome, decals, clearcoat...and what a shiny finish he had!. That was a really hard point, to remove the paint. that time, there were no aftermarket decals on the market, so i wanted to print my own. after i removed the paint, i changed the trimlines around the roof and overhauled the complete front to fit better with the bumpers.
thats why i think, sometime the "Modelbuildersgod" gives you a hint, when you can make it better :-D .

This is one of my favorite cars on my shelf... Such an oddball car. Watching!

A local BMW dealership used to have one on display. One time I managed to talk a salesman into letting me sit in it. Such a weird and cool little car.

Second one of these I've seen on here this week, unique little spud for sure. Knock another masterpiece out of the park Tom !

I love how the steering wheel moves with the door when you open it to allow for more room to get in and out. Pretty ingenious of the developers.

Nice ! Killer weathering, Tom !
5. January, 00:58
Fantastic 👍

Beautiful weathering. My only criticism is that you should make the cleats of the tracks metallic as it would be worn and not rusty

Unfortunately the whitewash weathering did not turnout well. Ugh!

I might try to see if I can remove the paint and do it over again...

Wow! I used some windex to try to remove the paint and it works a charm. It doesn't interact with the underlying Alclad Klear Kote! So Happy.

And it's done! The weathering turned out okay seeing as it was my first real attempt at doing that. Assembled the internals and everything works. Will post a video of it in action tomorrow. It's very noisy and the controls are pretty crude.

People build "micro layouts" that are pretty cool. I am thinking of building one soon. They are typically less than 6 square feet and are in a small scale or narrow gauge so a lot can be fit into a very small space. I recently built a 9 square inch diorama for my little russian ball tank and it was really fun. I'd never built "scenery" before and I was very happy with how it turned out.

Yes, the micro layouts are pretty cool! I'll have to check out your Russian Ball tank.

Arrrgh, don't tempt me. Now I'm going to google "micro layouts" and go down another hobby rabbit hole.... Damn you, Internet!
