This started life as a curbside. I scratchbuilt the engine bay. Engine was a mix of kit bash/modify and scratchbuilt.

So much amazing work here people, I'm loving this thread so much :D

 

Here's a couple more little pieces I dragged out of my tangled twisted mind :lol:

 

Functional universal joint, just because-

Picture011-1.jpg

 

Functional hood hinge, again just because. Still needs a little gas shock, I couldn't find tube small enough at the time-

And just some experimenting with bead welds, nothing compared to what I've seen on this forum-

Keep posting people, I'm loving this!

Here's one for you. The wagon was from a kit, the other item is a scratch build. I made it with 4 rims and a tiny handful of other stuff.

 

Who remembers the days ?

The items on here are amazing!


This is my second project made from brass. It is a copy of the real Autotwirler.

The 1/18 diecast car was modified to be a body shell. The body rotisserie is all scratch built from brass.

I love threads like this, as dr cranky would say More More and More Eye candy oh and yes take your vitamins......

Not sure I want to show any of mine!!. WOW!!!!!!

 

1/32 scale Mack CF Aerialscope

Scope-R.jpg

 

1/32 scale American LaFrance Pioneer cab Aero-Chief Snorkle

(Only the tires/rims & Yellow portion of the front fenders are kit pieces!)

Pioneer-Snorkle-Rf.jpg

 

Mack CF Heavy Rescue;

Rescue-Lf.jpg

 

 

Very incomplete Emergency-One 135 foot Stratospear Ladder truck;

 

Strat-out.jpg

 

Both Mack builds are based on the Monogram/Revell 1/32 scale Pumper kit

 

The Snorkle & E-One are completely scratch-built save for tires/rims.

Lightbars in front of E-One are kit pieces too.

Twinsonic is from Monogram Malibu Police car, Aeordyn is from MPC.

It was in the Trail Patrol Chevy Stepside, Pursuit Trans Am, and Monaco Police kits.

 

Rotators on the Snorkle are also Scratch-Built

Well, as you can see I am building a chassis for a Maserati 250f with working steering, out of steel wire and brass plate. 98% of it is totally scratchbuilt and soldered together.  Wheels were turned on a lathe by someone else and the tires molded by Monogram.
 

The body is hand carved by me from balsa.

Driver will be from Fujimi.

Awesome work here on this thread. My contribution is this H61 Mack. Apart from the rims tyres diesel tanks headlights and running lights, it is entirely scrachbuilt. Not as intricate as some of the other subjects here but its definitely my favourite in my collection.

I was ready to call b.s. on these being scale size and not 1:1 until that pic with the ruler for reference. Absolutely unbelievable skill here.

I'm really impressed whit those pieces of pure art! You really inspire me to try, to push harder to make more scratch build in my models!
