I know it was brought up a few times before, but who sells scale surf boards? Is there a reason caster that I can hang ten with? Maybe a kit that has spent too much time at the beach?

You would figure that the 48 woody would come with a board but it doesnt

You can get your surf boards from Norm Veber at Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland, I did.

I have 'boards from both the Monogram '57 Nomad and AMT '41 Ford Woody, as pictured. The '41 Woody board appears to be a longboard as is the nicer of the two IMHO, but I'm no 'board expert.

Fridge magnets have always worked for me, especially when you consider that they are already finished with some cool graphics and are almost perfectly sized for 1/25th/24th scale models.

Here are some from a site called www.alohagiftsfromhawaii.com

Magnets are here.

They are not really that hard to make. I made 3 of them from a plastic hubcap that came off my gas grill. I noticed it had the perfect curve. You can Google surfboards and find all kind of designs. Long boards, short boards, different fin styles, neat paint and maybe learn something along the way. Oh, and some nice bikinis.

Buy some 1/16th inch basswood, layer two sheets together, cut out shape and sand to your hearts content. Use a piece of sheet plastic for the fin. You can make a bunch boards for not much money.

The pics aren't about the board, but that's how I did this one.

Thanks for all the knarley info. I do like the idea of making my own with R&M as a back up plan. I was looking for these for the '48 woody.

I know a guy (Ken) made surboards from free paint stirrers from Lowe's and/or Home Depot.

Jim, that wouldn't be a bad idea since I'm painting the new place right now. I could sacrafice a few stir sticks to the gods of plastic.

This Ken guy (who happened to win the Revell/Gearz contest in the out of the box category) glued two paint stirrers together and just started sanding. I might have a pic of the surfboard from the MAGS show in Tampa a couple of months ago. Or maybe MAGS has pics up somewhere.

Scale Modeling By Chris has a set of 3 for $14.95 and includes some decals. I have them, and it appears the 2 large ones could be from the 31 sedan, while the small one looks like it came from Monogram's garbage truck.
heres the link, he's a good guy to do business with. http://www.scalemode...ccessories7.htm

I like the stir stick idea! I can picture splitting one lengthwise, and glue in a thin strip of a dark wood. Any suggestions on type of wood? A moto tool would really help in roughing out the final shape.
