Topics I've Started

project "U-Hauler"

29 April 2015 - 03:20 PM

So I've been kicking around this crazy idea for a bit, I'm kinda planning as I go, as usual...


Armed with a doodle, some measurements I scaled out in Illustrator and a spare cab from a previous (poor) build I got to work.. Oh and a ton of sheet styrene.


The doodle..



Started by stripping the cab (amazingly the windows were painted and they look saveable too) I then set that on a set of Moebius semi wheels and Pegasus 23's to check and see where I was.



then I got to work with a Xacto, a ruler and a bunch of .040 sheet....









Obviously a ton of work ahead, but I cant stop smiling.. this one should be FUN!


Misfit Ford rod

This poor thing never really knows what it wants to be.. The only thing consitiant so far has been the engine I plan to use (SVO 4 banger from the 1:24 monogram/revell kit.


Started as a roadster pickup



then I made some progress on the chassis, stretched it out a bit and found a Jimmy Flintstone body







and then the project stalled... I liked the coupe body, but never really was pleased with the proportions. I couldn't figure it out.


Recently I picked up a old 30 body as part of a gluebomb kit for $2!! I cleaned it up a bit and gave it a shot, I think we are on to something now!





Progress will be slow as I have a few other big projects going on, but this will be a good one to tinker with when I need a break from the others.

Pro-touring style C3 vette

25 March 2015 - 12:03 PM

Needing to take a break from the fiddly bits on my 41 pickup build I figured why not start another build, I picked up this corvette kit cheap at the show this past weekend in Columbus. What better way to start it off than by cutting it all up. Kind of going a similar style as my last Mustang build.






Cut to make room for some big tires, in this case 19/20 combo from the ZR1 corvette



using the cut off flare as the base for the new flares, moving them up and out in the process. Should help keep it looking like a Vette but give it a meaner look and stance. 



Very early mock-up to see if we are headed in the right direction.





I borrowed the front wheels and tires from the 41 to see what it looks like with some wheels under there.


41 chevy pickup - little different

So I stumbled upon this a while ago, and knew I had to use it for inspiration for a build.. Today is the day I started to make that happen. 





Wont be an exact replica, but I am taking major cues from it, I debated between a few bodies, but the 41 won in the end (mostly cause it has a straight 6 and its ugly)


Started with a slice off the bottom





then started on a mild chop, I didn't do nearly as much as I initially marked.






70 camaro, little different

saw this one on the net, and knew I had to use it for inspiration. wont be an exactl replica, I just liked the different twist on your normal Camaro.





started by making lowered spindles and narrowing the rear a bit to mount the Pegasus wheels I got.



initial stance, I think this could work well, the rear will probably come up a tad.





Just going for a quicker clean build on this one. Taking a break after finishing the Mustang.


Thanks for looking
