Nearing completion of my second T-Bucket project.
By way of explanation, my local modeling club chose the '25 Model T as the 2012 internal club contest theme. I've never been much into Model Ts or Model As (although I respect their place in our American automotive heritage), but I figured I play along and take a shot at building a "T" or 2. My first attempt was a Rat Rod (see recent post in "Under Glass" entitled "I Smell a Rat"). The current project is a bit more shiny.
Once again, the project is based on AMT's reissued '25 T kit, with some kit-bashing thrown in. The wheels come from the recently reissued "Sock-It-To-Me" Corvette. The body is painted a deep Emerald Green Metallic (Testors) with "Citrus Yellow" interior (whatever Testors calls it, it looks green to me).
The fun part was selecting the engine. After reading up on some recent trends in T-Buckets, I learned that there's a movement towards non-traditional modern engines, so I decided to see how "non-traditional" I could get. I'll leave it to you more eagle-eyed observers to see if you can identify it.
I've still got a few details to finish, including the fuel tank and tail light, etc.
Comments/Suggestions/Questions are appreciated.....
