    I bought some nice Fujimi kits of Koenig TRs. I can build models but I always mess up the paint so I want to get a Pro to build these for me to my specs.

    Is anybody here up for the job or do you know any good model builders ?
    Thanks

    Ask our sponsor Cavallino Models. They do exquisite work. I take it you're talking about slutmobile and the racecar?

    I used Alex @ Italianhorses.com (or is it .net), but he got so back logged he shipped the rest of my kits back unbuilt.

    I would love to try, but it would be wrecked during shipment back I am afraid, and I need a new spray gun for the paint, that I unfortunately can't afford:(

    Good luck though :)

    William, I tried to PM you, but your box is full.

    Try Dennis Koleber at www.denniskoleber.com, he is in Texas. I have had him build some Ferrari models for me, he is one of the best. This is all he does, and is usually building for owners of the 1/1 car.

    Try Peter Wingfield at pwingfield1@tampabay.rr.com. He's in Clearwater,FL. He had a bad falling out these past few yrs with bad business decisions but he's supposedly apologized to everyone on 11/05 via ebay groups (1/43 Handbuilt Builders and Collectors Group). He actually got sued on people's court this yr for models not delivered. He's a great builder but if you go this route I'd advise not to send prepayment(which got him in trouble with alot of customers) and ask him for a realistic timeframe. He may be more realistic with completion of your stuff as your not to far from him. I've had his wrk in my hands in the past and they are top-notch. His ebay user_id is: plm-studio. Good Luck.
