The Passing of the Father of the 426 HEMI .. RIP Tom Hoover

03 May 2015 - 03:24 PM

Really sad to see so many passing on who we have come to admire over time even if we didn't know their names we knew of what made them legendary.   Tom Hoover, the man widely known as the “father” and/or “godfather” of the 426 HEMI racing engine, which celebrated its 50th anniversaryin 2014.          http://blog.fcanorth...f-the-426-hemi/

Very Sad News from ModelHaus Today

18 April 2015 - 08:20 AM

The Modelhaus Website is down temporarily. While our site was originally down for routine maintenance, that has changed. We have experienced the tragic death of our youngest child, our 32 year old son Steven. Please be patient with us as we take time to mourn and somehow put our lives back together. We trust God, but sometimes do not understand.
 

1966 Bonneville

25 January 2015 - 09:59 AM

  Stated as a Hasegawa Kit and for all purposes only used the body and glass , the interior is from an original AMT 66 Bonneville kit I  found on E Bay with the dash. There was no bucket seats and was about to order them from Modelhaus , had a tub from a 70 Bonni and while researching pictures of the 1:1 car I noticed the bench seats I had for the 70 was almost identical to those of a 66. Well that made my mind up to do a 66 Bonneville convertible with bench seats rather than the traditional bucket seat car. Being it wasn't an original AMT kit I wanted something unique. Used a chassis from a 65 Bonneville kit and as with all my convertible conversions the sun visors are scratch made to suit me.  Hope you like it
