Here are some progress shots of my 50 Olds Gasser. This is the first gasser I have ever built.
I trying to replicate an old barn find gasser. Maybe something like this:
Here is where I'm at so far.
I need to add the transmission linkages.
I used the front suspension from the 1933 Chrysler kit. It fit so well, I just had to use it. The white parts are scratch built items.
Here I’m experimenting with some different rust colors.

Hey Guys ! I need some help.
I'm considering adding some lighting to my 1/25th scale diorama. I need overhead lights that would be found in a small garage.
When I try LED's they project a round spot on the floor. No good.
When I try 1.5 volt and 3 volt tiny filament type bulbs, they don't produce enough light.
I want to run the lights on batteries.

What material is good to use for 1/25th scale tarps? I know how to make a tarp, but I'm not sure what material to use. What has worked well for you?
And Is there some kind of material that can be used without soaking it in a glue mixture?
A material that will drape over the car in a natural way without the glue?

Hey guys, here is my next project. I’m already a few weeks into this project so I will post some progress pictures in the next few days so you can catch up to where I am in the building process.
My inspiration is this drawing I found on the H.A.M.B. Forum, drawn by Jeff Norwell.
I want to do a 1/25th scale garage diorama all in black and white except for the car. The car will be the only thing in color.
I did some mock-ups so I could see what it would look like and determine the size of things.
I started with the car. The garage will depict a scene from around 1957. The car will be a period correct 32’ Ford. Something like this:
The first thing was to create a correct stock frame. A stock frame is pictured on the bottom. I started with the Revell frame on the top. In the middle is the Revell frame with some modifications.
