I'm still wracking my brain trying to figure out how this thing wound up sitting so high, it was laid out in mock up.
How she sits tonight.
The above mentioned exhaust.

The interior tailgate panel.
I also made my first round with the filler on the main body.
I only broke one joint tonight !

How did you get the bends to stay in the headers? I have never been able to master that in styrene. I don't see flame marks.
Sorry to be late with the answer Scott.
I try to cold bend the rod using just my fingers. I bend a little, let it rest a second, bend some more and repeat that process until I have a little more band than I need. The rod will want to spring back some, so that's why I go a little "over". If, like in the case of this header, it will hold it's shape when assembled, I leave it alone.If it is not part of an assembly and won't hold it's shape, I'll cold bend it, then hit it with a lighter just long enough to hold it's shape. It takes way less heat to get it to set after it's bent, than to use heat to make the bend.
Hope that made sense.

the header stickin out of the fender bottom looks great man, and i really like the way those wheels look on it too......very nice work.
The wheels are from a Monogram 39 Chevy Sedan Delivery, the tires are from a Monogram 94 Mustang.

While I'm waiting for the primer to dry thoroughly on the Woody, I figured I'd try to see what I could do with a recent find. I don't find this car particularly attractive, but I did see a lot potential. After a little thought and a couple of hours of cutting and fitting, this is what I came up with.

This build will be my first venture with BMF, I guess I should start practicing! Luckily it's only the four straight spears on the fenders.
I dropped it and only broke one joint!

I ordered a set of the Uschi Woody Decals, they should be here soon. Along with the BMF, this will be my first attempt at anything woodgrain, lets hope I don't screw up either of them!
