    Well actually it's my second attempt, the first one didn't turn out too well, but this one I'm happy with.

    Here is a picture of both cars, see I somehow messed up the paint job on the first one (the pickup truck)

    Those look good. If I ever get time to do the modeling I want to do, I have a couple of Jordon model t's and Wheel Works 32 Ford duece roadster. I'm planning to build them into hot rods for a 50's module.

    those are great i have done a bunch of them. I have found that they are harder than alot of the 1/25 scale cars i use to build.

    Jesper, I don't see anything wrong with the little truck. Both are very fine models!

    You say you 'messed up the paint job' - you should have seen the one Jordan car I made a long time ago!! :eek: (It ended up in a junk yard, the last project I did before I stopped model railroading for 20 years. :D)

    I think they both look great. I have an old jordan Essex kit that I haven't built yet. Seeing yours, I'd better get a move on!

    They are both terrific Jesper! The only way one can mess them up is getting them pesky fine/thin piece parts to stay in place while applying the plastic cement to them.

    I love those vehicles and you finished them the way they are supposed to be.

    The Jordan kits are great! I have about a dozen but need some more.

    If you are worried about messing it up just don't do what I did - I have one of the 1904 Oldsmobile curved dash cars. It was on the edge of the layout and got knocked off. It was fine after the fall but then I didn't notice it and trod on it :eek:

    It was totalled but I was able to glue the bits back (into a slightly twisted shape) and leave it in a back yard as a crash victim.

    You have two GREAT looking models there, Jasper. I really, really like the pick-up truck.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery


    If that pick-up is not up to your standards... I will gladly give it a home on my layout! Very nice work!
