Whats up lil. New guy here. Paul Mendoza. Mr1/16th told me about this place. Some of the west coast guys know me from the lower left coast and such. Not a whole lot into the low rider scene but I got respect for the culture and the creativity that goes into any creation. And I have a low rider in the works actually but it's on the back burner. Gota get more ideas and finish off a few other projects.
I enjoy building big scale stuff and drag racing mostly. i've been around drag racing my whole life and was actually my job working on them for a long time. I like to scratchbuild crap too. (even though I grumble about it alot lol)
Here's what I'm working on now:



One I recently finished for the museum here for display with their theme.

And a 1/12 Porsche 935 with a ton of scrathbuilt stuff and the Scale Motorsport set to go with it. There's a ton of pics here of the posrche if anyones interested.

Nice paint and detail work. Welcome to lil. Is that a waste gate on your key board and where do you get the clamp?

That is the wastegate for the 935. The only kit parts left are the cover and the tube. I machined the expansion/flex joint at work and as for the clamp, I scratchbuilt it using left over photoetch sprue. I copied the ones we use atmy old work for coupler covers and fuel pumps and funnycars and altereds.
