Name: Jim Shepherd
When did you start building models? Around the age of 7 or 8
Why? I always liked cars and like the idea of building miniature cars that I liked. Also, the box art caught my attention and still does.
What was the first model car you built? It was a 1963 corvette – that my uncle repainted while I was asleep.
What types of models do you build? I like factory stock and restomods.
What brand(s) of models do you build the most? Revell and AMT
What do you like most about model building? I find it relaxing.
What part(s) of model building do you find the most challenging? The sanding and polishing to get that brilliant shine!
Anyone special who provided you guidance/inspiration/support? I would build models occasionally, but when I met the guys from the ACME Club I really started to build a lot of models.
If you could have one older kit reissued what would it be? The one I am searching for is the MPC 1985 Pontiac Trans Am
What new model would you like to see issued? I would like to see 4 door cars and wagons from the 1950’s & 1960’s.
