Are you sure you did not just shrink a real one? What scale are you working in here?

 

Those parts are 1/12th scale.  I have Another one in progress that is truly 100% scratch-built.

I LOVE the concept on that boat. Gives me some ideas for some junker bodies I have laying around.

Did you build a jig to make the frame or were you just laying on that cutting board and soldering? Just curious how you wnet about it. I am going to be building some aircrfat fuselage interior framing and was wondering. I did a little bit in the past where I taped the pieces to a piece of tracing papaer and did it burning away the paper as I soldered. That actually worked pretty well.  


No I didn't built a jig. I hand bent the tubes and solder it on top of the cutting board.

This is awfully simple compared to a lot of stuff on here, but it came out pretty nicely so I'm pleased. It's a trailer that's part of a late '40's dry lakes style race set that includes an AMT '40 Ford Sedan Delivery and a resin '34 Ford Roadster body on a modified AMT '34 Ford 5-window chassis. I love scratch building parts that I can't easily find otherwise. The trailer was primarily made from various Evergreen and Plastruct plastic shapes with the wheels and springs coming from an AMT '37 Chevy kit and the fenders from an AMT '25 T double kit. I built it freehand, just measuring and cutting as I went, based on the dimensions established by the roadster's track and length.

I also like to build traditional style hot rod frames. This is a lo-boy Deuce sedan based on a Jimmy Flintstone resin body. because of the thivkness and dimensions of the Flintstone body which is based on the Revell Orange Crate, I couldn't modify an existing styrene Deuce frame. It was actually easier just to make my own! The interior is also largely scratch built I'm haven't shown it here. The frame rails are made of Evergreen styrene strip. The rear cossmembers and diagonal braces are Evergreen styrene rod. The center crossmember is a Revell Deuce piece and the front crossmember is from an AMT '29 Model A Ford roadster chassis. The taper at the front of the rails was traced from a Revell Deuce frame and sanded and filed into shape.

And finally this next chassis is what I consider to be my best work. It's very simple but looks quite true-to-life to my eyes. It's a simple '40's style dry lakes modified. The entire frame with the exception of the rear crossmenber is scratch built from styrene strip, including the split wishbones. The rear crossmember is from a Revell '29 Ford RPU. The exhaust headers and pipes, most of the interior, and the fuel tank in the final pictures are also scratch built.

I gotta get in on all the fun here but most of mine pales in comparison to some of the highly detailed scratchbuilding going on in this thread.

 

Here's my Carny Wagon. The entire living quarters is scratch built along with everything inside it.

This includes the guitar, food canisters, pot bellied stove, metal sink, coffee pot, matchbook holder by the door including red tip wooden matches, etc.

Next is a few shots from my Fiat Altered build, which is still an on-going project until I'm happy with the paint.

 

The entire front axle, suspension, batwings and radius rods are all scratch built and the steering is functioning as is a requirement in all of my builds.

Also, some of the other scratch built items include the butterfly steering wheel, seat and all of the interior tins are made from printing plate.

This thread is amazing and inspiring as well. I'm dialed in and now that I've found it, I check it first thing everytime I get on the forum.

One final project. Still working on this one and am in limbo until my wheels come in.

 

Functioning steering on my lifted 1/25th scale Jeep with functioning u-joints in the steering knuckes.

I'll have more on this later.
