  1. Is Modelhaus selling there molds?

    It is not the molds as they have a very limited life, it is all the masters that are important and the know how on how to cast.
  2. 1930 Ford Altered

    Use the spokes if you like, Altereds did use those despite others claims here ........ Many pics are out there with those wheels
  3. 1930 Ford Altered

    I like where this is going, but, redo the motor mounts to the correct position and set them further back on the sides of the block. If you are unsure to where exactly just google a pic ......
  4. Well here is another project just started, as inspired by Roger and his south side street racer builds, THANKS Roger lol. This is an AMT 67 Camaro using the 68 Camaro interior, grill and tail lights. This will represent a late 70's early 80's street/strip car with the exception of the tires. Instead of using the superior Revell chassis etc. I opted to use the AMT chassis and added scratched sub frame connectors that are cut into the floor, and rear frame brace, scratched a drive shaft loop, which I see I lost a bolt head, will have to add another one. A scratched fuel tank sump which I cast from resin along with all the other resin parts here. Decided to also use the kit engine but with my scratched Moroso valve covers, and other pieces. The 4 speed is going to be cut off and replaced with the 2 speed Powerglide and another of my home made deep transmission pans. Will be constructing some Lakewood slapper bars which I already have made decals for on a couple of the decal sheets I offer. I will also scratch a vintage B&M shifter as well. Will also install a Lakewood 3 point roll bar. The rear drag radials are from Chief Joseph who's parts are second to none btw. The kit diff. will be used with cover cut off and replaced with a finned aluminum cover that is a Perry's Resin piece. I find the parts in the kit can be made to look quite presentable if detailed up. I will moderately detail this with wiring, plumbing a little photo etched etc. Color I think will be a light to medium blue. Hope you like it and it inspires you like Roger's did for me...... Alan
  5. 68 Camaro New Project

    Not on the 68, actually yes, I have decided to switch it back to a 67 lol....... but I did post updates on the 69 a couple of days ago .......
  6. 69 Camaro project update 2

    Thanks Jesse
  7. More done .... frame connectors cut into the floor, drive shaft loop installed and new leaf spring front perches installed. Next up, shackles for the rear of the leaf springs .... Alan
  8. 69 Camaro project update 2

    The only problem was I had three personal losses all at once ....... that slowed me down but I am really busy with custom orders and regular orders. My regular orders have been all caught up and mailed out a while ago so , no, no problems. I guess that is why I went into a building mode, to keep my mind off of the bad stuff. Alan
  9. 69 Camaro Project Update

    Thank you for the kind words, sorry but no I won't be casting these ........ Get out your saw, files and scratch building supplies Alan
  10. The pics will tell all but, added cross member for new shock mount location, refabricated frame rails for larger tires, narrowed stock fuel tank. Yet to add frame connectors and drive shaft loop.
  11. 69 Camaro Project

    Once again switching to a TH400. Scratched Lakewood slapper bars, have to finish the snubbers, J bolts and shock mounts. Wheels are from the 69 Nova with the rears widened by first resin casting wheels with the same lip but fit the larger tires. Cut section needed from resin wheels then fit to modified Nova wheels. This will also have a scratched 6 point cage, frame connectors and drive shaft loop. This is actually a replica of Div. 7's, Super Stock record holder Buck Kinney built Camaro that was on the street in Port Coquitlam BC in the late 70's early 80's. It was that GM silvery light green with the flat black hood and black wheels, just a no nonsense big block street pounder ....
  12. Revell Volkswagen Rabbit - Clearly Scale Engine

    What Walter said ! ........... But that being said, this is just a plain cool little hot rod, in a Datsun 510 sort of way . Love the stainless exhaust detail as well as that killer little engine. Any pics of that engine kit ? Alan
  13. This has many of my own mastered and cast parts as well as some resin copies of straight up kit stuff. Switching over to a TH400. In the works are scratch build Lakewood ladder bars.
  14. 66 El Camino project

    Thanks Pete, I like doing the subtle things that most would miss. On this the lower control arms have been boxed with three plates per side, holes in the firewall for hood hinges all filled with modified hinges to fit and raise the rear of the hood, fuel tank sump added etc. These were a common practice back in the day of limited after market parts ......
  15. I have some printed so yes but have not put them up yet ...... Send me an email @ alan@whoopiekatdecals.com if you want to get a set.
  16. '69 340 Dart

    VERY nice ! Like how this is turning out ..... Alan
  17. 65 Comet

    Really like this, VERY nice work ! Yes, what color is this and what did you prime with ? Alan
  18. New Decals from Whoopiekat

    Yes, they are in the works ....
  19. Here are a couple of new decals that will be up on the site soon. Rod Shop 63 Corvette Gasser for the actual car not the kit replacement but I offer those as well. These are scaled to the fit the AMT 63 Corvette. You will have to scratch the hood scoop for this one and mask off for painting that portion of the hood red. Or you can use the blue in the center between the red stripes like the kit depicts. Next is the Buick Stage I and Stage II including the Stage II hood scoop decals. More factory stock under hood markings and body graphics/emblems are in the works as well Alan
  20. 70 Buick GS 455 Stage 1

    Very nice ! I am doing one as well. Have done all the Stage I and Stage II decals. They will be available soon. Alan
  21. Due to a personal loss, I ask for some time before I am able to reply to any emails. I have also put up a notice on my site. Thank you Alan
  22. Whoopiekat Notice

    I want to thank you all for your patients and kind words and thoughts while I have been mourning my very painful loss, Now with a broken heart. I have been dealt a double blow with just recently fining out that a very close and dear friend has been given the news of just weeks left to live due to his rapidly advancing and extremely aggressive bone cancer. How much heart ache can one be expected to endure ? The best thing for me is to try to keep busy and my mind occupied. I am back printing orders and hope to have everyone's orders out in the next week or so. I sincerely appreciate the understanding and kind messages and thoughts Thank you Alan
  23. AMT 1968 El Camino SS

    Nice Dan, not trying to be critical but you put the consul in backwards .....
