Hi Richard, Really like how this is turning out!! Those wheels look great with the paint job!

flattened the sides of the glass and made that black
see through grille
dryfit all losse and not leveled also tried a white wall ring in the rear , loved it so its white walls all around
with the salt racer , thats not finished needs openings in the side of the hood with headers sticking out
dont mind the roundness of the front tyres i made them smaller roughly and need to sand them round again

made a small push bar out of a vw beetje bumper , needs a layer of chrome
then started with wood at the back of the cab i want to make a braket there so the spare wheel can hang there
layer of black , i can easely sand it so it becomes more like weathered wood

Now this is cool.
Very interesting concept, and very nicely done.

and yes i kind of changed the idea into making a trailer / gooseneck fo it later on so i can put 2 cars on that..
also i will ad a bar to the racer and extend the push bar so the truck can pushstart the racer
this is just one of those no plans builds and i just build and see where i end up

made the bar out of a vw beetle piece and a piece of a citroen 2cv bumper (lol)
sanded the wood , this will get some semi clear on it later so it comes more to life
pushstart idea , now i can make a bar on the rear of the racer
very rough start of more woodwork and the toolbox with lock will sit under there , one on eitch side
something like this only against the runing boards
painted the wooden floor black , waighting untill its dry and i can sand that as well
pushbar painted chrome
spare wheel in base chrome

then added some layers of clear to bring the wood to life due to the dark evening pics with artificial light it looks way more dark and red as irl
tomorrow i wil sand it a tad with superfine paper so the gloss is a tad less and i will make some better pics when there is still daylight

on one side there will be 2 toolboxes with locks , those are drying now , just painted them
on the other side i have build a fueltank , from a old fueltank top with scrathed bottom and a step from the partsbox ..
need to be painted just a dryfit its loose under there
to weather the spare wheel
especially on this pic you see its more massive and wide and filled now
and a good shot of the woodwork , wich i sanded again after clear to tone down the gloss and redness due to the clear
the pics dont do it justice due to the dark evening shots irl its nicer imo
i hope to make some sharper daylight pics soon

made some better pics , the toolboxes with locks on the other side , all loose under there so the position will be different
this is loose on the table and needs to come under teh wood floor bnut taken to show the third slightly different tool box , i could make that under the 2 boxes or use it somewhere else
painted gastank , i wanted to paint the step on the side of it chrome after this black coat , now i'm thinking of keeping it just black , the way the light hits it is just great
a brome , need a brown stem en the hairs in like beige ..

everything is glued in place
painted the toolbox hinges and locks chrome , BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH that was some tiny stuff actually very easy to paint with a wooden sate pin ,just sanded the point smooth and sprayed some chrome in a bowl ...works every time
started paint on the broom , needs more still

Awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome work!!!!!!!
haha thnx man !!!!
for years i have been doing automotive renderings and maybe some know about autemo , i'm an artist there ..
but since a year or half a year i have not done anything .. the modelcar hobby is just more statisfying , something you can really hold and rotate irl and hands on beats virtual stuff anytime ..
but when i looked at one of the last posted pics i got an idea , the shot was taken on a blanc painters canvas and using fotoshop i (done quick) made the visible part of my living room white also , removed the green light fall and added just a simple filter
this filter erases noise in the pic , sharpens details and at the same time makes it kind of more blurred and soft almost to the painted look
so i didnt alter anything on my model just a all white backdrop and a filter ..
if i would make real good shots especially to do this stuff the results could be way better , this was just done in 5 minutes because i got the idea
