Thread: David from the UK

    David from the UK

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope you are happy to have me on the forum. I have been a huge fan of the movie christine and the plymouth car since I was young (alot younger than today). I do not own a plymouth unfortunately and sadly dont reckon my chances of ever owning one unless circumstances change as for one I doubt it would fit in my garage and I am currently not in a financial position to own one.

    So, I will have to make do with building a model AMT christine instead for now. I want to put up a question about that so will do that in a moment.

    Once again hope you dont mind me posting about this and if you dont mind helping me out with some of my questions in my next post I would really appreciate your help!

    I'm hoping its something I can share that some of you may like to see when its done.

    Hi Dave...I'm Geoff from Shrewsbury. I have a half built Christine, which will be slowly assembled in my garage and maybe ready to roll about 2020.

    the forum has a registered member who lives in Rushton, between you and Northampton, but I don't know his name. he doesn't post often, but there are a few of them out there. He has a real Plymouth.

    All things "Christine" are welcome on the forum. It's not just about owning a car, but about sharing the interest.....and having a laugh along the way.

    Hi David. Good to have you with us. Do you have many models that you have built or is Christine the first?

    Thanks again guys.

    Chrissy Mopar, Christine will be my second model build. I have well and truly been bitten by the modelling bug, though. I have several kits lined up and quite an eclectic mix ranging from 50's to mid 90's. I would like to get some of the 30's and 40's kits too later on. My first model was a revell mk1 golf gti.

    David I had that Bug once. SOOOOoooo many models. :) Each one is a real challenge to get it perfect. Look forward to seeing pics in the future.

    You are right there Crissy, I'm so glad I have much more patience now than I used to.

    Just a couple of pics of the golf I mentioned. This is practically the first plastic model I have built. I say practically because last time I tried to build anything I was a pre teen (many years ago) and the result was a white styrene blob that didn't even half resemble the model it was intending to be. My dad tried to get me into building model planes but I was not interested at the time. I dont quite know what sparked this sudden interest in model making cars all of a sudden but I surprised my self and learnt lots of new skills, dos and donts already from the first model. I know its not christine but that is the next car I am working on, infact I started already and should have something to share with you all soon!

    Need better pics and the model was not quite finished in these pics.

    It looks flawless David. Thanks for letting us see your work. My attraction to the models was all the great detail.

    Hi David. I am Eddie (Imperial King) I just had the chance to view this thread. I hope you find this forum of good use.
    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.

    Thanks Eddie for the warm welcome.

    Cheers Chrissy. Managed to sort some paint for christines body. Its zero paints "official" christine plymouth fury red which is a company in the uk who specialise in automotive model paints so will be interesting to see how it looks. I'm starting to get the underneath looking close to how I would like it but I think my niche in model building like yourself is the details and a little added weathering to give the model depth and character.

    More to come soon in my other thread.
