Ok guys here is another on that I have started on July 5, 2012. It started as a 64 Impala Lowrider kit from Revell. This thing is going RADICAL lowrider of the year style. Chrome undercarraige, kandy patterns everywhere. This is my first attempt at a custom of this magnatude. Look out because it could get ugly!
In the beginning...

Here it is all opened up in carshow mode! This is as far as I have made it so far, besides starting to jam and hinge it.

Wow!

Judging by the '62 that you've recently posted, I have a feeling that I should definitely be watching this build!

Kinda looks like a Transformers turning into "robot" mode. heh

Pretty darn cool!

It's kinda lkie a Transformer..........but lower..........

Thanks guys, this one isn't goint to be a fast build up by anymeans. I am shooting for about 3-4 months. Been messing with all the hinges, trying to get that figured out because I want this thing to close up like a real car.

I got some of the hinges done.. rear tilt and trunk lid and doors are hinged, haven't messed with the front tilt or hood, and I am not sure how the hell I am going to hinge the roof yet. I will get more pics soon. I have just been really busy the last week.

Nice Job! Now thats Radical right there. I used to build models as a kid and recently decided to try a radical build. What tool did you use to do your cuts tho? Any suggestions?
