Hello,

The last few months i made a custom Rat Rod using 2 kits from AMT, a '57 Chevy "bel air" and a '50 Chevy pickup truck 3100. My inspiration i found at the internet , see picture below.

For this build i made a lot of custom work...

For example:

  • Topchop

  • fueltank

  • rollbars

  • Z-chassis and channel

  • grill

  • engine components

  • wheelbay rear

  • radiator

  • and more...

Aftermarket:

  • wheels and tires

  • engine components

  • bomberseats

I hope you like it. !

Nice! Love how you took the basic overall 'feel' of the 1:1, and then went your own way with it.

Nice! I like yer model better than the real car. On the 1:1, the box is too short and doesn't look like its sitting right. Good job!
