    I've been a lurker for too long. Thanks to Rhaven for pointing it out.
    I don't get very much time to model anymore but when I do I usually
    like to shrink things down tiny size. I enjoy occasionally pulling out my
    Tomy HO slot cars (big boys, small toys) and racing with my grandchildren.
    I'm currently recovering from a major back surgery and ended up helping
    with a design project for a large exhibit that will be at Anaheim Convention Center in July (brainwork...).
    After that it's on to running a multimedia
    mentoring center at my church.

    So-o-o-o, I may not be around a lot but when I can I will be commenting
    much more. I've enjoyed a lot of evening browses in the past and hope to in the future.

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    I am glad that I was able to give you that boost that you needed to join in on all of the fun that we are having here.
    We have MANY members here who like to shrink models down to a "MICRO" scale. I am certain that a few of them will say "HI" to you.

    I hope that you make a STRONG and quick recovery from your surgery.

    That sounds like quite the project that you took on. I hope that it all works out well for you.

    By all means, please post photos of any models that you have already built (Even your slot cars).

    Now I have to ask, do you custom make the bodies for your slot cars out of paper? If so, could you give us some insight as to how you make them or where you get the patterns?

    If you have any questions, comments, concerns, need help or advice. Please feel free to ask and we will do what we can to help you (or at least point you in the right direction).

    Once again, welcome aboard. I hope that you enjoy yourself here.

    Paper bodies work really well on HO slot cars. You can make some wild looking stuff! :)

    Paper slot car bodies - HO scale

    it's trial and error...I did a dirt track style body, posted on the slot car forums some time back. and I've been trial and erroring a Can Am style body. I shrunk down some plans I found but proportions didn't seem right.

    I'll get some pix and scare everybody
