Grand Valley Model Car Club (GVMCC)

What's New

Club Challenge Build 2022
The club challenge build is a common kit - the newly re-released AMT Chevy II station wagon,
either the curbside kit or the full kit with all the extra parts.  Three of us are going to add a resin
cast model of a soap box derby racer that appeared in the AMT 1968 Chevrolet El Camino kit.

The results will be shown

Club Challenge Build 2020
It looks like the 2020 challenge will be to complete a Porsche vehicle of your choice.  Results

We are also going to track how many models get finished, starting on March to the end of the
COVID-19 crisis (whenever that will be).  See the galleries for these.

Club Challenge Build 2019
The club has decided on a group challenge build:
- build one or more cars that competed or appeared in the Shell 4000 Rally
- deadline is Torcan 2019 show (end of May 2019)
- car can be one that competed or one of the support vehicles

The Shell 4000 Rally ran from 1961 to 1971 (with a break for 1969 and 1970).  It ran before the Trans-Canada highway
was completed and ran from Vancouver to Montreal (usually).
There is a wonderful website that has captured information, articles and photos, at
