Topics I've Started

It's about time for another '32 Ford

20 May 2014 - 01:00 PM

I have been building military subjects nonstop for the better part of a year. I decided it's time to take a break and build a car.

 

One of my favorites is any deuce with an Ardun head engine. I found this while wondering around Wally World today, it has the appropriate Ardun engine.

When I got home I dug this moldy oldy from the stash.

I began by modifying the cross member to accept the shorter engine.

A bit o' frame work.

You can see where the front motor mounts will be located.

Nothing's been cleaned up yet. I'm tacking things together to check the fit. This was a later issue of the venerable '32 Ford Three Window and in my eyes the molds are certainly showing their age.

Sounding good

12 May 2014 - 04:09 PM

I was at a light yesterday evening sitting beside a honey in a Foxbody convertible. The car was a bit rough but that 5.0 sounded real sweet when the light went green.

 

I had almost  forgotten that sound, brought back some memories.

 

What "does it" for you?

Another from the "All the Rest" Group Build

16 April 2014 - 03:36 PM

This was my third completion in the GB. I created a conversion from Panzer III F to Panzerbefehlswagen III E. I scratchbuilt the frame antenna, machine gun mount and moved the turret 1 scale foot forward.

 

Here are some pre paint mockup shots.

All I intend to add is a covered MG barrel and maybe a commander figure if I find a good one.

Switching jobs

01 April 2014 - 05:11 AM

For over 34 years now I've been an active law enforcement officer. I have retired once, vowed to stay out of police work, but went right back.

 

I was just informed I made the list as an investigator for the Clark County Coroner's Office.

 

I spent some time in Homicide back in the mid 90's so the way I see it, the jobs a breeze.

 

No one talks back or complains.
