Here is my new project. Its a Replicas and Miniature of Maryland 32 Ford Vicky resin body that I added the soft top from a Flintstone B400 body. I know the B400 had a sedan type rear panel but I wanted to do one with a Vicky rear panel.

Here is what I started with....

After some cutting and fitting I ended up with this.......

Those are the tires it will be on and the stance it will have. I also did some initial chassis mods today. I added a tubular center section and notched the front crossmember to sit lower.

Thanks for looking. I hope to take this one to Birmingham for the theme class.

Very nice! Good flow of lines on the Vicky body with the soft top! What are you thinking for motorvation and rolling stock?

It looks like the Ridler award winner from a couple years ago. It was build by Johnson's Hot Rod Shop in AL. Keep up the good work.

Did some work on the rear triangulated four-link this week. Tough to see it right now with everything in styrene white.
