    This is the type of modeling I sit and look at for hours just to take in the talent and skill of a builder that can put this much into a diorama. This is Amazing Danny, Keep up the great work! I def have my eye on this one.

    194? Chevy Farm Beater Truck
    I had some free time today away from work and what not. I decided it'd be a pretty good day to go about starting a new build. I decided, I want something I can use as a project for when I get tired of other builds I am doing. I just won a parts lot on e-bay that I remembered finding a 1949 I believe Chevy pickup?.. It is missing ALOT of parts, I didnt notice how much was gone when I bid on it but I bought it and now I have somewhat of an idea of what I will be doing this should come together slowly but surely.

    I am missing All suspension, Wheels, Tires, Bumpers, Tail gate, Engine, Trans, Dash, Seats, I gotta dig to find the glass, Sideskirts were gone for below the doors ETC. So I didnt wanna just throw the body out, So I am deciding to build a truck you might find on a farm. One the kids take 4 wheeling, They use it to haul stuff and just a good ol farm truck.

    I dug through my parts box, I found a set of mud tires and rims, Two rear axles, I'll have to see if I can use one to build a front axle (A task I dont know if I am ready for, but no times better then now to find out right) I will build the leaf springs out of styrene as well as shackles to give it the lift. I have a Chevy 350 engine that was painted but it will need a intake manifold and carb which ill find.

    Plan is to try my luck at rusting and denting this old bone up. It will be a piece for the diorama I am building to sit out back of a old shed. Hopefully I can pull this off, I have not the slightest clue as to how I rust or dent a vehicle but I am going to do alot of reading on the subjects and hopefully I can get this truck finished and you all will approve of it. This will be the first time I kit bash, Rust, Custom build anything. In my past models they've all been built box stock and maybe swapped a set of wheels or paint difference. Hopefully this one turns out well. Thanks for taking the time to look at the plans and I will upload pictures soon to show you what I am starting with.

    I really like where this is headed!

    I think copper on the inside of the rim with a chrome lip would give it a nice look too!
  13. DailyGrindCustoms added a post in a topic Resin Casting for your own good?   

    Is the price the same for smaller objects like hoods, Rims and stuff like that? I am just curious because I dont plan to do a whole body often... Only if I could finish up these Ford F150 Crew Cab and the Ram crew cab. Otherwise it'll be a bunch of very small items I am doing.

    Resin Casting for your own good?
    I have been getting back into the hobby slowly. I've looked around at the price of resin items, I think to myself when it comes to buy resin items I could almost make way with doing it myself cheaper? Now, I won't be casting for someone else, So would I benefit enough from doing it myself?

    I build alot of the same models, C1500s, Dodge Ram VTS, 99 Mustang Cobra to name a few. If I could get a good master down, I'd like to resin cast a few of the things I've built for my builds. Custom shaved beds, tailgates, Cowl hoods, Seats and Wheels as well as other custom parts I've build so I can use them in future builds. I have began a 97 F-150 Crew Cab cab, Dodge Ram VTS Crew Cab, If I were to get it to where I am happy with it, I'd really like to cast it so I wont have to keep rebuilding the same things over and over.

    I also was curious, When resin casting how hard is it to make a mold and whats best to use for making one? I looked on youtube for a couple hours watching different methods of casting and how people do it.

    Any help from someone who does this, would be appreciated!

    I built my first model when I was 11, Kept building til I was about 15. Then sports, Girls and eventually parties got in the way. I got in some trouble for drinking, Wrecked a couple cars and I decided I needed to get away from that group of people and even if I sit at home bored, I figured I could fill my man cave with some models. Its always been a way for me to get away from everything and turn up the music and let my mind go to work. I like to build vehicles that I cant own. Its like building minature dreams everytime my hands get ahold of a kit.
