How to build the Druid Princess?
Posted 29 November 2012 - 11:16 AM
I've been obsessed with this car since I was a kid. I am thinking about trying to build it. I believe the body will be easy enough to make out of card stock.
As for the embossing, what material could I use to carve a mold into to pour maybe acrylic paint in to get that effect?
And the frame... is there maybe an old show rod's chassis that would work, or would it have to be scratch built?
Any help is greatly appreciated...

I think you'll probably end up having to scratch a frame, if you want accuracy.

As for the clay, would I need some sort of release agent to keep the acrylic from sticking to it?

I could see it in 1/20 scale, and the MPC Popcorn Wagon kit could supply the Cragar S/S wheels and some less fancy scrollwork, too:

You might could also use a Munsters Koach kit but you would have to lower it.
