Why do I build Metro's? Because I like the little buggers!

Is it a Gaggle of Geos or a Murder Metros?
Where did all these Metros come from?
The three pictures above were taken during the construction of the
original Geo Metro model. The Metro model began as a Geo Storm dealer promotional model
(also shown above).
The Storm model was heavily modified using sheet and strip styrene stock as well as
catalyzed automotive glazing compound. The completed Metro model was used as a master pattern
to make RTV silicone molds. The silicone molds were then used to cast polyurethane
resin copies of all the parts needed to build a stock Geo Metro Convertible model.
All of the Metro models on this page were built using the cast resin Metro parts.
The "Murder of Metros" above were built using the unmodified castings, while the rest
of the models on this page were built by modifying castings and/or combining parts from
additional model kits.
