    40's Willys "rat/stock"
    Okay So I know I haven't posted on here in... forever... I've been fallowing people on here and watching builds one thing I've noticed is that there are a LOT of Willy's out there... The only model I had lying around is one.. (I don't keep models on stock lol)

    Anyway... this first post is just a teaser of what Is to come.. I kinda gave up on my challenger pro touring.. well just put it on the back burner really until I can buy another one just like to to get some parts..

    THIS PICTURE IS JUST WHAT I'VE GOT DONE SO FAR sorry for not giving a step by step thing. I get to into it and forget to take pics as I go.. this one is from my phone but I'll have more pictures from a real camera tomorrow !!!


    Here's the kicker .. if anyone wants to "donate" parts you think would look cool on the willy's (keep in mind there isn't much room on this model" go for it .. I made my first hinge for it so there is trunk space.. you can contact me through here personally and we can chat..
    I wish I knew how to lower this model ... I'm still starting out in my modeling so I don't know a whole lot.. Its like I can see what it looks like in my head but then never can build it....

    paint-- flat black base coat then a "georgia clay" color over it and then lightly sand it till the black and even some of the primer (white) comes through..

    engine-- It came with a blown hemi (orange with white headers .. or.. dun dun dun.. I can fit an old viper v10 I have but I'd have to make some headers for it...

    Frame -- flat black.

    Roll cage-- I custom built a roll cage and that's the only real color it'll have its a pearl lime green

    I'm gonna add some wheelie bars from another kit to it .. maybe..

    possibly not run headlights or if I do put them on there i'll put a black X on them like I've seen on some cars..

    I'm looking for a duplicate seat of what came it it I would really like to run 2 seats so it looks more like ya drove it to the track..

    Any input would be appreciated ..

    Some detail parts from other kits and/or scratch built parts will used as well ..

    Thanks for looking and God bless

    So I worked on this for about an hour rattling my brain as to how I'm going to make the back suspension, Looks okay to me kinda got the idea from a simple design on a friends dirt track car. I'll have more pics soon here's a teaser!

  5. BassMan90 added a post in a topic My first 70's pro touring challenger   

    Yeah I Could do that if I had the supplies, I'm just getting back into model building so I'm limited to my supplies I think I'm going to save them for a future project!

    Thanks man, means a lot, yes I would of loved to use them but the holes were too big (if anyone has some wheels they'd be willing to part with i'd sure appreciate it, but they have to fit a normal 1:24 scale rear end like the one that comes in kits. if that makes sense) in them they actually came off of a "dub edition" dicast model car i had years ago (that was a challenger as well, you could say I like mopar) Yeah there's a ton of talent on this site!

    Couldn't sleep its 2:30 am here. I'll post pics tomorrow but got a little bit more done on the interior (went with the red seats thanks Brandon) and figured out how to do what I think is a " 4-link" rear end!

    Got a little work done on the interior tub tonight don't know which seat to use if I use the red one I'll have 2 seats if not I'll only have the racing seat.. Ideas? I'm re designing the rear part of the frame

    Okay I hope this works had to try to figure out how to add more pics, this being my first posting, anyway what you see(hopefully) are 2 motor options the original which was a 318 that i stripped down and re did to make look like a big block. or a viper v10 both fit nicely actually with plenty of room to do what I have planned for the "under the hood" section. The other is how i made my rear wheel tubs, I didn't take pics while i was making them so i just put the completed tubs back on the pvc pipe and wrapped wire around it so you'd get the idea. and the other is the '41 willy's gasser project that I was working on before I got the idea to do this car! She'll get finished though nothing fancy just a simple build

    Oh yeah it's hard i've had to measure twice or three times that's for sure i'll probably get one if i decide to do one like this again, hey could you take pics of .. under the car with your new tub on it i'm stuck at how to make the back half of mine and need some ideas ( i have to scratch build the rear wheel tubs and everything behind the front seats)
  13. BassMan90 added a post in a topic My first 70's pro touring challenger   

    well I like the old nascar ones I have but 2 of them are kinda crappy looking so if i used them i'd have to just turn it sideways to display ha. Idk something like that or some old bbs style wheels i doubt i'll have glass in this car (because idk where they are really) but i wanna make it look like an actual racer not just a show car ..

    I wish i had a mitre box I have a "hobby pad" that has some angles on it, so I'm basically "free hand" cutting and cutting them a touch longer then needed to compensate for changes while in mock up.. Thanks yes I've had this site in my favorites for a month now and now that it's gettin cold I just turn on the heater in the garage and spend time out there! Tons of talent here that's for sure, partly why I decided to scrap half of the project I'm doing and build a frame myself

    I forgot to add. i had to cut the back half of the interior tub off because of the obvious bigger tires and frame so i only really have the front seat compartment. i'll have to make a tunnel for the drive shaft as well but that will be the easy part compared to the back half :/
