I've been thinking about this for awhile now. I saw a really nice Monogram '53 Bel Air done up in Badman colors. I haven't had much luck finding one (Monogram '53) so I started thinking about other possibilities, I.E. a Monogram '56 or '57, then I ran across these fine examples.These aren't mine, found 'em on the web.

So show me what ya got.

I didn't make a derivative, but I tried to make mine more accurate. Turned it into a flipnose, with a 409 engine and the correct class designation on the window.

Neil, that's a work of real inspiration. Flip nose, red firewall makes it pop. I see you got rid of the kits sewer pipe headers with another work of art.Those look much better. :o

This might not be a how to on "flip" fronts , but give it a good look. There are a bunch of great ideas here covering many problems a mere beginner would have trying to copy this.

Not a derivative, but rather an alternative.

I love the flip-nose Neil and the alternative Roger.  Also love the three originals from you Gregory.   This is  mine, not finished yet but, this one is going to become MADMAN.    I could not build the kit version, tried twice with my kids.DSC04532_zps593a1225.jpgDSC04261.jpg

I recently picked up this kit but not sure when I will get to building it yet. But what I see here is awesome!

Still kicking around ideas on how I want to build it.

Made to represent a low budget, backyard built gasser without fancy wheels or paint.
