I have this idea of a hot rod duece with a retro type tear drop trailer.
I will use the new Revell 32 Ford and a resin teardrop trailer(thanks Len :) ).

Just getting started,well believe it or not I already have a few hours into the trailer.
Made a frame and axle out of sprue and have a hitch from parts box in mind
and also made fenders from sheet styrene.

Bear with me,thanks for checking it out and any ideas are welcome.

Off to a good start.
How do you heat the fenders after there clamped in the shape you want?

I got lucky and found it through the Wanted section here and made a trade.

I have seen a Jimmy Flinstone teardrop and a
teardrop from the Australian store that sells the Uncertian T on Ebay.
The Flintstone teardrop is also available on Ebay.
I believe they go for $20 roughly.

Thinking two tone,possibly blue/silver or maroon/silver.
Very preliminary though.
I probably should have a game plan laid out B).

I used very thin sheet styrene (.010) and used the clamps(24 hrs) to add a little curvature,
then allowed the glue to do the rest.
Possibly since I have the skirts on the outside of the fenders I was able to use the thin styrene.
I'm not sure if the .010 would look to thin with exposed edges.



* I tried multiquote but it was all jumbled together. B)
