i have the travel bug.

you cannot tell me this is happening this early. not a chance. Oh, who am i kidding right now, I have the travel bug & right now, I’m literally out of my mind wishing i could travel right now. I probably brought it on myself, since this weekend i had to write a paper for school on something I’m passionate about [and i happened to chose my love of traveling & my love for different cultures]!

there are several very exciting trips in the works for 2013, but, I’m pretty sure I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. in the mean time, I am busy scouring around online for possible places i would love to go, and this one takes the cake. It’s called The Saguaro Palm Springs & all of these pictures are from their website. I think I’m in love! Do you think my boss would mind if i just left my job for a couple of weeks and took a vacation here? That’s a risk I’m willing to take!
Tell me if you’re as in love with this place as I am…

Much love,

P.S. ok, forget the two weeks part; can i just move here?!

    Thank you Graham for your observation which is sttlrciy correct, for it is only many parts of these models that are actually scratch-built. Some of the models include the greater part of them as being scratch-built eg the whole monocoque and its contents, the bodywork and all the suspension, relying only on the wheels, tyres, an engine block and a few small parts from a kit to bring about something unique in the 1/12 scale range, the Tyrrell 006 is a good example. All other models here are to varying degrees made from parts derived from raw materials, however if the term scratch-built can only apply to a model if every part of it is derived from raw materials, it would seem a little harsh to not be able to say that a monocoque, bodywork etc were scratch-built when in reality they were.The sections on Materials and Methods, Past, Present and Future are quite clear on these distinctions and many of the well-known commercially available models featured, are simply those built a long time ago, made as well as possible with increasing levels of super-detailing and modification.Mark

    Umm, are you really just giving this info out for nothing?
