My variations on the Rat Roadster
Posted 10 October 2013 - 11:53 AM
I have 2 Rat Roasters sitting in the que for building. I can't decide which of your versions I like better, so I'll keep watching your progress.

The one with the Z'd frame looks great, I want to do one like that now!

I absolutely love highboys, but that lowboy is looking spectacular.
More I say !

Looking good, I can never get enough of these hot rod builds.

Bradley, I have to know where the windshield comes from on the highboy body? Is it aftermarket or does it come with a kit?

The windscreen on the Highboy is from the AMT 32 Phantom kit. I filled in the center vent on the cowl, sanded down the lip molded on the cowl for the kit windscreen, and filled the recesses for the windshield posts.

Nice work so far on both of them. They both sit well. I'll be curious as to how you handle the valence panel below the trunk lid on the low boy, which, along with the notch in the frame rails for the exhaust and the IMHO silly hood ports, are among the major complaints I have about this "modified re-issue", which results in additional work to make what is now Revell's only 1/25th scale Roadster a more universal model. And, yes, do consider a shortened grill shell on the Low Boy...

Love it all except the tail lights. Just one mans opinion.

thanks . and holy smokes squirrel we must think alike. I love the drive tunnel and drilling the holes definitely makes it ..it would've been a lot easier for revel to just mold them with the holes and maybe have a filler piece like the amt 62 buicks side ducts... anyways hurry up and its not gonna be blue is it lol
