  1. cool ! , nice vibe and detail , love the gaskets on the wall , next time make shots without the figures , looks more realistic
  2. sorry for the late reply ! thnx guys ! i did not really have a exact period or year in mind , but its def. ment to be a old station ...rural setting ...i have tried to label it with an exact year in the beginning but in the end just build it ...so you are welcome to look and determan a year for it ... its def. a post war piece since the style sign i used is 50's ? i believe ... and since the gasstation is all weathered its a older station .. so i could be in the late 60's early 70's ?? like in a remote rural earea where they did not update the signs / style wise ?? the building could be earlyer .... i dont know really lol , tbh i seldom put in effort or time to pin point stuff like that and let my imagination run free and build stuff so for me it seems plausible together ..
  3. my god randy thats ...stunning ! , how did you connect the pieces of the control arms ? are the rods and stuff glued or soldered ?
  4. Rip Blair ! , i just found out on facebook , and saw the memorial stand on the show (pictures of that) , i got chils , great builder and a awsome friendly guy i talked to online for few years ... man ______
  5. if you wash the wood black and sand it back a bit you get the dark woodgrain , its really cool .. you can even put some brown woodstain over after that and that brings it to life even more
  6. very cool ! , def. out of the box and i love the look ! the wood could use some staining imo to really finish it of .. could also be cool to wash the wood with black so it gos in the woodgrain and then stain or clear coat
  7. thnx ! the roof is made of medical tape (cloth tape) , the white tape found in emergency kits , to tape bandage ... you can spray it with paint , color it with a marker etc !... just roll it off and put it on a smooth surface , cut to size , paint it and then carefully pull of and put on the part .. also works great to make carpet , a parcelshelf etc .. i wanted more of a vinyl look then this but i could not come up with good material so i dis this , i def want to find some material that resembles a vinyl roof better ..
  8. thnx guys !! i forgot to mention , all the chrome is sprayed (rattle can) only the dash pieceis kit chrome.. i'm on a build break since i need to finish a big diy job in my house .. but the next kit is already waighting on the bench , a '55 ford panel truck from revell , also a paint bomb .. got most painted stripped already
  9. thnx all ! ! thnx and sure its a sort of spring stuff , very small diameter but very flexible , looks ribbed because its wound like a spring (no tension) so it looks like braided line . for the fuel line i used a guitar snare , also ribbed
  10. aww thnx a lot guys ! much apriciated !! irl it looks better imo on the pics it looks rougher .. and i'm glad i pulled of the look with no surf theme ...maybe one of these days i will build a nice metal roof rack for the woody and put some misc. stuff on top
  11. thnx ! thnx and ship them over we are not afraid of some work lol hahaha
  12. under glass : http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/121998-1948-ford-woody-station/
  13. this revell 48 woody started out as half a glue bomb .. most parts and body where badly painted .. luckely not put together .. i revamped it into a patina resto mod style .. engine is a 5.0 ho ford v8 .. customized some stuff and build a battery , master brake cilinder etc .. chassis is heavely modified with airbags , brake lines , custom made exhaust .. interiour is rather stock and not weathered ... the build thread in on the bench : http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/119741-48-ford-woody-gluebomb-series-rodded-99-done-pics/
