Topics I've Started

Trading model collection for non model items

04 September 2014 - 08:15 PM

I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about someone trading all of their models/ supplies for non model items.. Musical instruments, wood working tools.. Things like that?

Gmc syclone?

23 July 2014 - 11:36 AM

I've been working on this project for a year or two now it started life as a gmc syclone but has turned into this crazy project... Body dropped, chopped top and I laid the A pillar back to keep a nice shape to the side windows, custom phantom grille, scratch built front bumper, shaved everything, door handles windshield whipers, gas door, tail lights, tailgate.. I added a sunroof, custom cut the hood and molded the rest of the hood into the body.. As for the chassis, it's sorta stock besides the back half which is custom tubed with a scratch build independent rear axle.. I just got back into this project after a few month brake from model building.. I hope to have it done in the next few months...

Need some help with 3d printing/ modeling?

01 July 2014 - 05:12 PM

I'm in need of some 3d printing assistance? I've been working on a 63 ford econoline van that's gonna be a replica of a van called vango. I started with a 60s dodge a100 van and I've made my way to the front end where I'm having some trouble scaling everything and making it all work.. I saw someone working on a 1:18 scale 3d printed ford econoline truck. I was wondering if anyone knows who that might be or can someone point me in a direction so I can get the front end of a ford econoline modeled and printed in 1:24 scale.

Engraving parts?

04 June 2014 - 08:55 PM

I'm currently working on a project that I'm getting very detailed with. I've been into lowriders for 20+ years and the new trend is engraving.. I'm trying to figure out a way to "engrave" a few parts ,control arms, rear axle, etc.. Just wondering if anyone has an idea of how I can get that look?

Got this kit from my nephew over a year ago, haven't really worked on it much since I got it. When I got it, I dropped it to the ground, which entailed a lot more cutting then you'd think.. I notched the rear of the frame and cut the spring pockets on the front of the frame. I cut out the front and the back wheel wells, cut and notched the floor between the rear wheel wells.. I shaved the firewall and frenched in the brake master cylinder.. I also had to lift the trans and drive shaft tunnel.. The rear axle will have a 2 link set up with a pan-hard bar.. I also made airbags for the front and rear.. As for the body, the kit comes pretty custom with shaved door handles and the chop top.. I took out the B pillar and remade the rear fender skirts so the fit better.. I also shaved the rear lights and cut open the trunk.. I've been getting back into this kit over the last week or so, I think I'll probably have it done with in the next month or so..
