IN MEMORIAM
Curtis Jay Hilton
August 8, 1958 - July 9, 2006

Curtis was a friend of mine. I will keep his site up for as long as I am in the web business. I know from my conversations with him he had a lot of close "Net" friends around the country. Sorry it has taken so long to get this info up but It took this long for me to deal with the loss. to view a good memorial movie and photos click here.

You will be missed but not forgotten.

  Welcome to CJ's Scale Auto Modeling Corner

     Welcome to my corner of Scale Auto Modeling, (SAM for short). I've put up this web page because I couldn't find much out there in the way of talking about or displaying model cars. There are a lot of planes, trains, and military models, which are great, but I like cars. Cars from the 30's to the 70's, customs, cruisers, lead sleds, hot rods & so on.  
   So..... for all you chopped, channeled, sectioned & shaved kustom kemp gear heads out there who like cars and can see the beauty & art in them whether they're real or pint size, this is my contribution, a few of my models that I've built.

Hope you enjoy the site.              Cj-sgt.gif (1191 bytes)

BIG KID? = ME
BIG KID ?

    I've been back into building model cars for a few years now. I started because I didn't have the room or the money to restore real cars like I once did. I also wanted the die cast model cars that were in the car magazines, but I couldn't justify the money they wanted for them. So off I went. I found a lot of the plastic model kits that were of interest to me, cars from the 30's, 40's, 50's &60's, so I started buying and building.
    I built the cars like I did in the 60's, with coat thread for engine wiring, dime store felt for the interior and hand painted the chrome with silver paint. Then, one day I heard of a model contest going on in the next town. I kind of figured I'd be too old to enter, but I packed up a few models anyway and off I went. When I got there I was floored with what I saw; the work and detail that went into these models were simply awesome. Well, I entered the contest, and took home a couple of 2nd, 3rd & 4th place ribbons, probably because there weren't many other cars entered in the same category that I was in. But more importantly, I learned a lot; like the different model car magazines out there, metal foils, after market items and so on. As well as, I wasn't the only grown man going through adolescence again playing with his toys. Ha. Ha. Ha.
    Well anyway it's been a couple of years since then, and I think I've gotten better at building, enough were I've placed 1st at a few contests I've entered. I still enjoy building my model cars, and I'm still in awe over the workmanship that a lot of the guys and gals put in their models, and to, in knowing, I'm not the only big kid there.
