Just the photo reference I needed! Also, none of my builds would work in 1:1, theyre all plastic! :P lol Making silly stuff that wouldnt work in fullscale is half the fun I rekon :D



 

 

I think it's looking cool.. Geez models don't have to be 100% realistic or accurate!!! keep up the good work.. I think is a good start for a nice show rod.

Thanks mate :D

 

Built a 1;1 T when I was 24.Buick 455....looking nothing like yours................. :P looking goodddddddddddd.

Wouldnt happen to have any piccies of your 1:1 would you? specifically inner doorskins and the body without an interior??

Its been quite a while.

 

Finished a bunch of tafe work so I allotted myself a little time to make a mess at the bench. Rescued this thing from under a pile of random desk-mess and did a bit of a mockup. Then got straight back to tafe work :/ Hoping to have the time to do little bits and pieces on this one. Still undecided on the front grill situation. Maybe a tractor-style...

Very cool, Which rims and tires are you going with ? I really like the spokes ,it would be so unique  :)

Thanks :) Im still not sure about the wheels. There was a motorcycle and sidecar scratchbuilt on here somewhere that had awesome scratchbuilt wheels and Id love to have a go at building some of my own. I just need lots of practice :D Wheels are proving very difficult for me, I can never seem to get perfect circles.

well the steelies look perfect but i also loved those spoked wheels .. those would make for a unique build and look .... so more realism would work with the steelies but those spoked wheels are just insanely cool and different from the mainstream :)

I had a go at making fancy wheels with the rims and tires of the spoked ones, still working out a design... Going to make new rear wheels that are a bit thicker and bigger than the stock spoked items. Woohoo for destroying sheet styrene!

Thanks mate :)

 

I'm really trying to make wheels that have the same 'dainty' style as the ones on this 1:9 scale motorcycle by Brizio, who is a member here. I saw this build in the scratchbuilding thread (http://www.modelcars...ic=67014&page=3). I hope Brizio doesnt mind me posting the picture here :D

 

That is my favorite thread ever, there's so much skill here!!!!!

Tried making wheels again. I need a soldering iron, glue wont stick this stuff together.

Bend some wire from sparklers etc, thats the back side of it... pics.
