Topics I've Started

MPC Chevy Beretta...once again!

20 November 2012 - 12:54 PM

I've restarted this project for the winter...After building a few hot rods, I want to build a couple of unusual subjects. This is one of them, an MPC Chevy Beretta. This is the initial mockup:

It won't have much customizations done other than wheels, tires, brakes, and a lowered suspension. Planned colors are white, burgundy interiors, and black wheels.


'28 Ford "Daily Driver Rat" rod

09 November 2012 - 12:49 PM

Hey guys! :)

Recently completed this model to compete in a local contest tomorrow! It's the '28 rat rod kit. I decided to build it as a "daily driver" rat, meaning that it had to be driveable and not slammed to the ground. The kit is basically stock except for the engine and driveline; they come from the AMT International Scout II kit. That's one huge 345 V8! Of course, it's not built as 4WD. Due to the engine size, I had to move back the cab and bed. Rear wheels come from the Scout, while the front wheels and tires come from the 1988 Revell VW Golf kit (?!). It has been properly weathered and dirties but not to the extreme.

Only thing missing completion is the custom Texas license plate that I printed today.

Wacky stuff: '32 Ford Sedan with scratchbuilt chassis

14 May 2012 - 04:38 PM

This is a wild thing I came up with tonight. Started building a deeply Z'ed chassis out of aluminum tubing. This is more or less what I have in mind, although still not sure about the wheel-tire combo. I would rather have a set of tall tires with some sort of steelies, so we'll see.
