Topics I've Started

1/8 c cab

25 December 2013 - 02:44 AM

O.k. I have always loved t buckets and c cabs. A number of years ago some one on here started a cab back when I was into big boys. I was so young and foolish it seems then. Lol. I loved the idea of it. I dint know what ever happened to it. The body was supposed to get molded and I wanted one. Never saw it happen. There is a British c cab from the seventies called "revenge; I really love the style of it. A Scottish gentleman has found it and restored it to a different paint scheme. Rumor has it that the mold was found and a very few select bodies were offered. I know a fellow Australian that bought one and is doing a show rod with it. There are a couple things I do not like about the back of the body. So I am taking things into my own hands. With several measurements of a 1915 t bucket I am going to try to piece this together. I do not have all of the measurements, so some will have to be eye balled. Hopefully it come out ok. I tried the Times to make the bottom front half of the body and it did not look right. I finally found out that my square was NOT square. So I had to buy a digital protracter so that I could also do 60'angles on the frame also. Now I'm getting some where's. The idea it's I am going to make a buck. Then a fiberglass mold of it. Then I will make a fiberglass body from the mold. This will be my first time ever working with fiberglass. So we will see how it goes. This is where I stand today. Merry Christmas.

t bucket

I am after at least one measurement of the big t. I have several measurements for the 1915 and 1923 t buckets in full size. However it covers mostly the length and only like two heights and widths. I need more before I can work on a master of a custom 1915 c cab. So I will take it one step at a time. I will be starting at the fire wall and working back. So the first measurement I need is the width and height of the tunnel opening. I am specifically looking for one if possible on a model that is channeled and running the Chevy motor. Thank you.

Fiberglass bodies

Hello. I was wondering if anyone has made fiberglass bodies for their models? If so, I would be interested in learning the process that you use. Thank U for any information.

T time...

Ok. As I prepare myself for both a scale and a full size t bucket build, I am gathering ideas. I already have my main concept down for it. But looking for some more let's say traditional inspiration. I would love to see your late fifties and sixties style t bucket build if you don't mind sharing. This may help me with engine and tranny choices, as well as more importantly tire wheel combos. Thanks

hello again

Hello. My name is Jody. Some may or may not remember me. I stepped away from modeling and hit into creating bicycles and working on my 79 Malibu. Went through a separation and started driving truck. I still drive truck but it's like a jacket..... straight. I am back with the wife and kids. Still working on bikes and my Malibu. Starting to prepare for a model t bucket build. I want to work out some ideas, so to the plastic I turn. So here I am again. Thanks. Jody
