66 El Camino Cruiser

21 January 2013 - 01:53 PM

Since I am stuck until I can get to the hobby shop this weekend, I decided to mock up my next build. I hope it goes here under pickups :)

 

Anyway, I am going to do a 66 El Camino topless cruiser.

 

Here is what I am starting off with:

Here is the mock up. I am going to try to keep it close to that low. Not sure yet what that will entail but I want it LOW. Top will get cut off leaving the windshield and vent windows and a little of the top right behind the windshield.

I want to cut out the detail of this hood and use it. If I can find a cowl somewhere I might use that. I could buy a resin cowl if I could find one. If not though, I like this hood detail anyway and think it would look good.

And here is the color I'm going with. Probably white as an accent color but still debating. Need to find a good color to offset the purple.

I'll probably work on this a little until I get the parts I need this weekend for my 41 chevy pickup.

Since I am almost done with the 25 ford and am waiting for paint to dry, I thought I would mock up my next build.

Anyone have a tutorial for scratch built exhaust stacks

15 September 2012 - 03:40 PM

I did some searching on the forums but could not find any info on scratch building some exhaust stacks. I am working on a 1/25th '41 chevy pickup and want some exhaust stacks for it.The 1/25th semi truck stacks look too large for what i want. If someone has a link to a tutorial or pics or something I would appreciate it. I would also be interested if there was a model that i could get that has stacks smaller than the semi stacks.
