Here some of mine...

This is a Fiat 643N Fire Truck, that my dad had in his Fire Station in Italy. It is 1/24 scale and it is all scratch built except the wheels and tires, that I mold and casted in resin using tires from a kit.
The ladder move all around and goes up and down. The wheels turns.

Here's my scratchbuilt stuff, a full wooden bed floor made from Basswood, some styrene strips for the reatining straps, tiny little bolts for the straps, and some straight pins for the fender bolts. Next are the scratch made tail lights with straightpin "Blue Dots", and a gas filler neck and cap made from aluminum tubing and some sprue.

The entire bed floor (Top and bottom) is all wood, I made a duplicate of the plastic bed floor for the bottom side with all the proper mounting tabs, cut strips for the top side, stained it all and put it together!

The new tail light lenses are some Red plastic I got from an old motion detector I replaced at work one day....

This is simply two different sizes of aluminum tubing fit together for the filler neck, and the cap was the same tubing with a piece of sprue shoved into it and shaped. I added a very fine piece of wire to the cap and ran it down the filler neck so the tiny little cap wouldn't get lost on me!

I love the fact that the VW bug camper is modeled after real 1:1 cars


Thank you Derick, when I saw the real car close to where I live, the first thing I though was to build one. :)

Some of you have seen this in action up close and personal, but here's a completely scratchbuilt working top frame for a '64 GTO I was building years ago. I've since abandoned the model as there were other issues that would involve totally taking the model apart, and I just lost the ambition.

I used an original shop manual to get the hard points made..............then just shrunk the details down to suit things for 1/24 scale. I probably won't ever have this in the model if I ever rebuild it-------just wanted to prove something to myself that an in scale working top frame can be done. ;) BTW, I still have the top frame, and it still folds up as well as it did when I built it back in 2003-04.

Hey Wayne, great work !!

What exactly is Renshape? Where can I get some?

Thanks


Hey Jim, Renshape is a lightweight composite/wood material that is as lightweight as balsa wood but much more durable and easy to work with in regards to shaping parts for model use or casting. The one downside is that it is not the cheapest material out there.

Try www.freemansupply.com they have a starter/sampler kit that only retails for about $25, and it includes multiple pieces of different grades of Renshape
