So,

Lately I have been making scale parts out of practically nothing, and thought I would try and get a thread going for everyone to show their ideas and scale inventions from household items.

(sorry about the yellow hue.... trying to figure out the cam still)

heres my latest creations

The Fender flares/ rolled fenders

Cool thread.. I was just going to post this. Finished it tonight.
I did a serious shop cleanup, got a new toolbox, bench, doors, and tire rack. Oh, and the rotors for my 19 inch offroad wheels. PS: "I'll be back in 10 minutes" haha That's what the reversible door sign says. hahaha

Meh treasures are:

Camo Tarp, Tent, rolled up piles of mesh

http://www.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/aab2afe024.jpg
Clear tool box, to be painted. Might Get something bigger.

This isn't a scale feature but something for scalers. Found myself a water proof case for my receiver.
It's a Ipod case. COMPLETELY waterproof!
