October 2017 KoolWheelz Release Party!

Okay, its time for the October KoolWheelz releases!!

I've got 9 new models ready to go...probably have more before the end of the month...but we'll start with these.

Not sure how fast I'll release least one a week...maybe two.
No point in rushing.
I'd love to see them built, so I challenge you to build each one as I release it
...and post the build before I will release the next one.

I think I'll keep them secret this time (unlike the August releases)...
you can vote* on what order you want them released...whichever looks interesting to you.
but all you get is this vague outline of each model.

*Voting will take place via Poll above.
Vote for the model(s) you want released first.
You can vote for up to two models (although the Poll will allow more votes)

But, if you happen to know what the model is, I ask that you keep that to yourself until its released.

Poll will close sometime on Sunday October 8.

The models really vary in skill level...a couple of these are quite difficult.
One is very easy (I think).
Some are my personal interests and projects...some are from your suggestions and ideas.
I hope you enjoy them.

As usual, I ask that you consider making a donation to help support my work.
Paypal....Donations - click the paypal link on my website.
Tee Shirts - buy a paper modeling Tee. Link at my website.
Buy a Model - Paper Model Shop Home and

Other than that, I just hope you have fun with these models much fun as I have designing them.

Those who are voting...I have a question.

Without revealing the identity or related number of any model,
can you tell me why you voted for the ones you did?

Is it because you recognize the model and it interests you?

Or, are you just curious about the model (but you don't know what it is)?

I am curious if some of you have actually identified one or more of the models.
(Not talking to the two of you that already know some of the models!)

Combination of both. I am reasonably certain of 2-5. The nose on 1 is somewhat of a giveaway (if I am guessing correctly). Very intrigued by the remainder.

My votes were based on available time as much as the curiosity factor. 3, 7, and 8 look more involved, so I am hoping for easier to start with, unless # 5 gets the vote, for which I will make time

Pretty sure about 1, 3, 4, 5, 6. But this would not be the first time I've been pretty sure about something and had to find a tender crow.

I am pretty sure I recognized one of the choices I voted for, and I think I recognized the other one, but not being completely sure.

Number 3 I'm certain was a Hot wheels Car that I still have in my collection, 4 and 5 look military. 7 and 8 I see cylinders and 6 might be used with ice. I hope I'm close on these.
