Tim Boyd's On Line Model Car Tutorials and How-Tos
For nearly 40 years, I have been fortunate enough to have nearly 500 different model car how-to articles published in a number of Model Car and Automotive magazine titles around the world. Here you can view and print some of my latest how-to articles, now available on-line instead of in printed media form.

PLEASE NOTE: These articles are intended for EXPERIENCED ADULT MODEL CAR BUILDERS ONLY. Please take appropriate cautions when building and painting model car kits. And If you are a minor, please consult with a parent or guardian before attempting to build a model kit. Thanks!
