Its taken a backseat I'm afraid, I think I need a lot more scratchbuilding/detailing practice before I attempt a build like that.

 

Heres a coupe pics of what Ive been working on in the mean-time.

 

GTX engine

great idea with the wood kasey, very cool.

 

 try not to use balsa wood though, it gets too "furry" lookin when you sand it. whenever possible, use basswood, its harder, easier to sand, and stands up well over time...your local hobby shop should have it, right in the same display that they have the balsa wood.

 

keep it goin!

cheers

Thanks for the kind words and info fellas :)

 

Did a bit of organising and a few mockups to get an idea of where I'm at with a few of my hotrod builds, the result is..... eclectic lol.

I will agree with you on having tools and learning more to hone the skills

but

You do have the talent and it shows in your builds, mock ups, "IDEAS!"

Please dont stop on the bucket, several of "Us" want to see it finished

You have the ability and it shows in your work.

Thank You for sharing

Later

Russ

Thanks for the friendly words guys :) It's an eclectic way of doing things, but I like jumping from built to build trying out different styles and ideas. The fun really ends for me when the paint goes on, so most of my builds usually dont get 'done'.

 

Right now Im trying to come up with ideas for this TBucket, I saw a picture of a red hotrod, I think it was a 32, that had a snub nose and a supercharged flathead mounted behind the body. Might give it a go. I have a gearbox from a Jaguar V12 LeMans car that I could modify to look a bit more dated. Some feedback would be appreciated, also some ideas. I want to do something a tad different than the usual T Bucket, not that theres anything wrong with them I just want to push myself to do some silly things with model cars.

I like what you have for the t right now. I would come up with an interesting motor for it to stand out.
For the rear engine car I would do another car I don't see that concept working with the t .
Keep up the good work.

Awesome work so far! I hear you on not finishing. I try to make myself finish one before starting another one but that doesn't always work out...  :)

On the wheels- IMHO I think your scratchbuilt wheels on front and some steelies  on the back, maybe with wide-whites, would be the perfect look.
