rat rod

09 October 2012 - 08:44 AM

I wanted to go off into a build territory that i have never done before. i am really interested in building a model a copped rat rod but dont know where to start. while i found some jimmy flinstone bodies that may work, do i need to scratch the chassis or can something pre existing be used. i have searched to see if someone had a drawn plan to go off of but i had no luck. i want to slam it and kind of follow a drag theme to it. kind of like this

parnelli jones marauder help

09 July 2012 - 08:21 AM

ok im hoping someone can help here. I'm looking to build parnelli jones 64 mercury marauder stock car he raced in 64-65. I know i read a thread somewhere and now cant seem to find it on how to build a more detailed chassis for this kit. I did acquire the suggested book by Bill Coulter in building and detailing scale model stock cars. In the book it states that you need the 64 marauder, 63 galaxie,66 fairlane, 57 fairlane. what is doesnt state is which one is used to the mate with the marauder body. pictures start out showing the mercury then somehow focus on the galaxie so im a little confused. can someone help?

some wheels help

12 May 2012 - 07:17 PM

I didnt know if this was the section to ask someone if they have wheels and tires that can be used for a trailer diorama. Im currently in the build processof a 1/25 car hauler for Tony schumachers dragster. Seeing as this is a scratch build i was hoping someone can help. Im only in need of 2 complete wheels as im only doing this trailer as a half wide build. I dont want the trailer to be the center of attention. Can anyone help. Looking for something that ud see in a hauler like this oneAttached File  flt.jpg   11.36KB   36 downloads

If anyone has been following my post on the ramchargers build you'll know that last week i ran into an issue with the decals. Seeing that there is no aftermarket decals for the ramchargers dragster i was at a crossroad. What you see below is a "what if" concept. I tried looking for decals that mimic that era. I used slixx decals don schumacher indy cuda winner as the artwork. While there was no such dragster made by don, I hope you guys like the IdeaPosted ImagePosted Image.
