my models W.I.P.
Models that are under construction or planning. Some have been u.c. for over 35 years. Most are over 5 years w.i.p. Maybe I'll finish them before I die. Maybe.
My Models cars--built
Plastic model kits completed and diecast cars that have been disassembled, repainted and/or modified.
My diecast models
1/12, 1/16, and 1/18 scale. These are mostly out of the box with some minor corrections in detailing, and a good polish/wax job. Most are not modified unless they misrepresented details of the actual 1:1 car.
I built the Constitution in 1970-71 while stationed in the Azores (Portugal). It was done mostly by kerosene lamplight as we had rationed electricity (and water). It has traveled approx. 9000 miles since finished. The PT-109 is recent, but one I always wanted to build in honor of Lt.jg Kennedy who my parents served with in WWII.
1966 Mustang GT restoration
Restoration of my 1966 Mustang GT convertible. Brad Norris detailing and paint 2005-2009, Las Vegas.
1977 Jaguar XJ6C

my 1966 Pontiac Grand Prix
Great cruiser I had such plans for. Made the mistake of selling it because I thought the engine needed rebuilding. It only needed a better tune-up but it was too late. I want another someday.
