    Gee, Vince, a Willys pickup?
    Great job.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Yep, I saw that new release, too. That helmet is the problem. Still looking for a old built or unbuilt figure from the Tall "T" kit.

    Okay, I stand corrected. I'll still use a modified Bantam coupe body to build a replica.

    I love this Bantam Altered that is being built on this forum.

    All that being said. If I were going stockish or Altered I would go with the Jimmy Flintstone resin cast one. Wheel location is right for either.

    Snake, the Jawbreaker Bantam body (in orange) seams a little simplified and off to me verses the Slingster body (in maroon). The Slingster one looks more like the Bantams I remember from the 60's.

    Thanks for your reply.
    The Stroker Surf Rod kit is in about 1/9th scale. He would be way to large to fit in a 1/25th Roadster. The Tall "T" figure would be my best bet as it is about 1/18th scale. Also, no Ollie's stores in Texas.

    Stroker McGurk figure
    Am doing a replica of Stroker McGurk cartoon pic by Tom Medley in Hot Rod magazine. Need a Stroker figure from an old MPC Tall "T" kit. Gluebomb or whatever. Have completed the '32 Roadster just need the figure. Please advise if you have one for sale or trade.

    Stroker McGurk's '32 Roadster
    Well, here was a built Revell "32 Roadster I got off Ebay.
    Disassembled it and gave it a purple pond bath. Trying to replicate Stroker McGurk's Roadster from the Tom Medley cartoons in the early Hot Rod magazines. Even found some chrome reversed rims with baby moon hubcaps in the parts box to add to it. 
    All I need now is a Stroker McGurk figure from an old MPC Tall "T" kit. Anyone out there got a glue bomb one or whatever to trade?

    Man, I love that paint. I think you nailed it.

    You may be thinking of the MPC '71 Road Runner. I believe it had parts to resemble a Superbird. Even though there was no such real car.

    Wow, 5 hr. job, I am I'm impressed. There are guys on this Forum that have WIP threads for years and still don't finish. That is great.
