BTW... how did you do the "Hot Rod" script on the amp? PE? Decal?

 

Thanks, Harry, that's a P.E. from Detail Master, I believe.  One sheet brings a whole bunch of badges and emblems that are perfect for this kind of thing.

 

I sure did have fun building this one, and I look forward to building a few more.

LOL, thank you everyone.  I think ZZ TOP's MUSIC is the perfect sound track for building rat rods as well as hot rods.

 

I also love Jimmy Vaughn's music too.

That is one sweet ride. You knocked another one out of the park.

Awesome looking build doc., it was a lot of fun to watch. I love what you've done with it. This kit has so many cool parts I have to get my hands on one. Looking forward to the next mad creation, keep it up.

Hi,

 

Fantastic build Cranky!  Lots of character has been infused into this one.

 

I've got your book and one day I'll be brave enough to try some of the techniques in it!

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

All right ! Fantastic job through and through ! That being said , the next has to be of the shiny variety . You have to keep the other side of the fence's occupants happy too ! Lmao !

The amp and guitar put it over the top !

Thanks, everyone.  Donn, I am going to hold off building any more of them until next year when I will build one every month.  Crazy?  Yes.  Fun, I hope so.

Nice job Doc, like mentioned above, would like to see some pics of items in trunk. I find that making some detail items is as much fun as building the car. It's easy to get carried away. 32's are always great!

Tom, ideally the amp and guitar would go in the trunk, but instead I put the moon tank in there and scattered some magazines.  They help draw the eye in to the area.

What an awesome build to give this new kit a jump start. No one could have been better for the job.

 

Your 32 should give others a glimpse at the potential of this kit.

As always, Doctor amazes me with his excellent builds! Really like this one, the "Black" looks really good and fits nicely on this one. You pulled this out very fast, Congratulations on that, too. All the "Junk" in trunk and interior, nice ideas all over (For example the Crankshaft as Frame Crossmember etc) make this pop out! Really nice.
