    Nova Pro Street '66 sedan delivery
    This is my old model based on AMT '66 Nova Pro Street and Flinstone resin sedan delivery body. Not exact fitting but not too hard to put together.

    Nice scrambler. Better can't be built out of the box,
    It is shame Jo-Han used in this kit '66 Rogue 2DHT body with convertible interior, slightly updated old 327 V8, torque tube tranny and wrong rear end.

    This is a really cool AMC!

    Ok, Hudson is ready. Actually this model is '53 but I can't change it.
    Some photos:

    Engine compartment is under construction now. Some wires are assembled but radiator, firewall parts and battery are still missing.

    This is my Fiat 500 with two olds Toronado engines. I hope to get it finished someday.

    Old Dodge pickups are handsome

    Thanks all folks.
    I forgot a picture of the chassis but here is it:

    Small update. Engine, brake- and fuellines are assembled but handbrake cables are still missing. Steering parts must be installed in the engine room before body can be put in place.




    Side frame bar needs still some trimming but can be done, I hope

    Great job. This is a quite challenging kit I made cabriolet years go. Only complaint is steering wheel position that should be like in this picture when wheels are straight.

    Foiling has been done and it took a week with one coat future to protect it.

    Nice idea. I have a couple surfboards available in some kits.
    I started foiling, I hate foiling. Still, a man's got to do what a man's got to do.

    Hudson's paint is polished and then coated with Future now but it is not enough smooth and glossy I expected. Can I polish it before I start foiling? I'm not very familiar with Future.



    I have that wagon body too but donor kit will be different. Maybe from a modern mopar

    Small update. Interior is nearly ready and next parcel shelf and body polishing.
