    Got bored with chores and it’s not warm enough for yard work or sittin on the deck.
    So I finished these I had started years ago.

    Over the years I’ve picked-up these resin kits of cars we’ve had in the past.
    Planned on this being one of my winter hobbies in retirement.
    Course the Monaco will be painted Pale Gold Poly w/Black top.
    The 63 wagon will be painted Claret Poly (dark red) like the one in my photo garage.
    The 67 notchback Barracuda gets painted Med. Blue Met. w/White top & int.

    Nice! I have sold off some and I am selling the rest of my model cars I probably won't get around to building (around 50 kits) but I've held on to some kits like the '69 Dart so I can make a model of my '67, Hemi Dart, Dick Landy cars, and a bunch of semi truck models. I almost sold them all, but decided to keep some so I have something to do when I'm bored as all get out. Didn't happen this winter, but I should have a small spray booth wet up for next year, as well as a cleaner area to build the kits.

    My brothers GF posted this. Most of the virtual museum tours are pretty cool.

    I have a ton of models down stairs to mess with, plus many projects on my car to finish it up. Working from home but plan to get in the garage as time allows and finish a few things up to keep myself occupied.

    Same here.
    Should be just warming up outside when my radio gets back from Gary T.
    Then the radio and speakers get installed before the new seats get put in.

    Plus I just got my tax return check. Paid for the radio, speakers and a good chunk of the new seats. 10 working days for the tax check is a record for me!

    I'd be interested to know what you've got for sale, especially if you're selling any Johan kits.

    Yesterday History Channel ran Monuments Men and Darkest Hour back to back.
    Spent a few hours on the couch yesterday not watching any news.

    I picked a few "useless" items from my stash and decided to turn them into "art".
    Several things I have are hard sell or not really useable or sellable.
    Here's a pair of pitted up vintage Yankee mirrors I mounted on some stained scrap wood. WAllaaaa..... They are now art! Shelf mirrors, book ends, whatever.
    Gonna do the same with the wheel cover centers to.
    I'm looking at my stash of parts in a different light now.
