:)I know that there are some really cool custom or out of the box models out there and I wanted to use this as a way for poeple to display their talent. I build models as a way of relieving stress or to brainstorm. Also anybody with drawings or other monster artwork could and should share if they would like. Here is some of what I have done. Scream, you the man, please share

This is a model I have been working on for almost a year now and I can't seem to get it done. I have researched every inch of the real Aces High and tried to get the model 100% accurate. It has poseable steering front and back. I am just taking my time on this one as I want it to be the ultimate model in my collection. Enjoy. MK

Insano, your computer drawing of KK reminds me of a piece I did for a potential Mayhem shirt a few years back. I made this in Flash, I'm now beginning to experiment with it in Paint Shop Pro. At some point I'd like to grab a copy of Illustrator (the vector graphics program) and try something in there, making it look as professional as possible.

Here is an entry. I made this in 1985. The sky is a backdrop made with spray paint, the ground is made from St. Helen's ash I had in a jar. I later replaced the headlights with small photographs of Bigfoot's real headlights I photographed from a poster.

what materials do you use for hand fabricating
I use a hobby knife, masking tape, and alot of imagination. I scratch built the Pirate Pete, it was a stage 1 truck that my dad had built about 18 years ago. It was looking its age and so I made it a stage 2. Entire roll cage on Pirate Pete is made using the scrap plastic borders from other models.

I have used Evergreen plastic. If you google search it you will find their website. That is what I used to scratch build the frame, suspension, cage, portions of the rear ends just about anything you need to scratch build you can do it out of Evergreen stuff. They make all different sizes, shapes etc. Thanks Shawn for the nice words about the model, you build some wicked stuff too my friend. Once I get this thing done I am going to build 2 more Aces Highs, I want to do a Valvoline version and I am gonna build another blue one for Jake Henke. I gotta get through this one first though. hahaha.
