so , this is my new project based on a a '53 ford pick up kit from amt
i got this kit for free from a guy on a lowbudget chopperbuild forum i'm on , i posted my models there and he had this lying at home for years
de content spread out
my latest rods have been 1/24 and becuase i chopped and channeled them they look quite small .
now a 53 ford pick up is already way larger in real life then older fords so that got me thinking .....
i decided to use the kit to make it into a fantasy hotrod
first started to look at the shapes and getting idea's flowing
then i decided to drasticly narrow the body , the roof will also be chopped but first i narrowed it
now it kinda looks silly in proportion lol:)
its now almost as wide as my ford roadster (1929)
after some chopping and glue
then sanded the seems and put some polyester filler on and in the seems , that gets rockhard
after a first flattening
already put in a chopped firewall for extra stability when chopping the roof , thats now braced and drying
next up i recon is the top chop
