But I will tell you that there's a galaxy of stellar builders (pun intended !) here that cause me to feel that exact way - my 'level 10' to their 'level 1000'. I refer to the superb scratch builders of long-running, complex projects. Along with those that super-detail and do advanced builds on large scale kits (sadly, fewer of those lately) and already complex MFH kits. A goodly number of guys are doing incredible, high-quality builds. I suspect in this case, there is not a large fan base for elderly Rolls Royces, which is completely understandable. It's a somewhat 'acquired' taste. Although good work may be appreciated, there's just not enough motivation to corner the market in these and build a fleet of them. So I am fortunate to be able to display the work of Cox here. He has accumulated the parts, kits and research over decades. Rather than build the same model in different colors, through creativity, he devised the magical mutants seen here. A rare collection indeed. If there were further interest in his work, I could probably coerce him into letting me display a few of his non-Rolls, classic Pocher builds - Bugattis, Mercedes, Fiats and several creative 'monster' one-offs that sprang from them. I had hoped to keep this a Rolls-centric thread with your Rolls builds within but again, I recognize that there is very limited Rolls interest. My main hope in showing my own work is that value could be found for the casual builder. Techniques I employed while solving problems can apply to very basic builds. And I hoped to inspire those builders to be creative and fearless about altering their basic model. All discussion welcomed. / C Chas, I don’t think that the lack of response you mentioned, should be taken as lack of interest. Like Jeroen, I am in awe of the quality of the builds you show us here (your own and David Cox’). Happy to see that you show us more of the wonderful builds that David created and do let them come. Whether they are Rollers or others fine brands or even such amazing cross-overs. They are all wonderful and bring ideas to the table of options one have when starting such a build. Do continu, if you please. Edited May 23, 2020 by Pouln 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
