My first posting in the under glass.

  Built for my local IPMS club build where it took 1st place. Revell kit with old AMT 289 Cobra engine.

Wow! I'm brand new here and I'd love to know how you went about getting the rims and body to look that weathered.

 

I just love rat rods and I didn't know you could achieve that look with a plastic model kit. Is there an area on the forum that can teach me how to do that?

Love it! From your screen name, though, I expected to see a VTEC engine in it. :D

 Seek out Dr. Crankys videos on you tube, he is my insperation. Also try and find AK Interactive magazine, its available for download. There is no rules, so your canvas is wide open, I think the replica stock guys have it the hardest.

Oh you got me thinking.......

Thank you, I was going for a steampunk look, and wanted to echo a old carival calliope.

Love it, Eric.  Wonderful rust and weathering, and all the great details help the viewer move around the model.  What kind of grill mesh is that?

Great build Eric, you had my vote! I keep going back and looking at all the details you put in it, the more I look the more I see!

 

Also, you really got the proportions just right on it. No small feat.
