  1. Making the board safer to view

    you should be able to add a plug in from your antivirus to firefox which will help
  2. How to sell on ebay?

    remember to include rare in caps on all listings, no matter what it is, also vintage, antique etc. eg. Mcdonalds straw RARE, vintage, antique, retro adult built lol
  3. lincoln custom

    a little work on the engine tonight. in keeping with the old but new theme, I made some coil packs for the engine (12 of them, lol) and did a little detailing to the manifold I already made in preperation for wiring. I'm not too worried about the gaps in the heads, the wiring will cover most of them. I'll be adding some more detail to the manifold after it's all wired
  4. lincoln custom

    I've been building this for my clubs 2 year anniversary contest. Yes it will have a v12 though it will be far from a stock version. Just for fun I'll let you guess what kits have been used to create what you see here (I'll post some more progress pics later)
  5. lincoln custom

    lets try and post this again, i messed up my first attempt, lol. I made the interior tub tonight using the rear of the chrysler atlantic concept as it has the same body line as the trunk and hood. I am using the centre console from the willys but i rounded of most of the edges so it flows better. A trimmed it so the dash fits, then added some trim to bring to mind the stock grille while being obviously modern custom. I might swap the seats for low back versions of the same seat, I'm not sure the highbacks work for this build
  6. lincoln custom

    Time for another update. As well as lots of sanding I had to make up some lights. I used the 37 ford as I think the lenses stick out more than the 40 ford or willys ones. I have also made a start on the dash. For it I used the willys dash as the base and a 50 ford pick up for the gauges and some other parts. Its not accurate but it'll do for a custom.

  8. lincoln custom

    It started as a 41 willys, lol. if your wanting to try it, look for the sets from china on amazon. I think the bottle of liquid is in one of the background pics. there are 3 speeds of liquid too, 2 mins, 5 mins and ten mins setting time
  9. lincoln custom

    Some older progress pics. The plan is to modernise the v12 with ardun heads, fuel injection and coil packs. I'll be using the willys front suspension and whatever rear axle fits. Most of the interior will be scratchbuilt around a 50 ford pick up dash and some corvette seats from clearly scale.
  10. lincoln custom

    most of its a willys, and theres most of a 40 ford in there too, and some chrysler atlantic and some 37 ford and a little vw beetle too. I'm did most of the stretching with acrylic nail filler as its much stronger than just gluing plastic together and when it has set its plastic rather than filler. Its good stuff and a little goes a long way. I used it to add a skin inside and out too for extra strength. I'm still rubbing down filler just now to give the roof and doors a little more curve as the willys is pretty flat compared to a lincoln
  11. I just measured the set i have and they are smaller. Clearly scale have some to fit their vw rims that should fit, they do from 14-16 in 1/24
  12. Would the front tyres from the aoshima kennmary skylines fit?
  13. wheels

    some of the tamiya race cars have similar rims, though they will have slicks, and hobby design do some really nice resin ones
  14. Looking for chassis Ferrar 365 Fujimi Enthusiast

    I'm pretty sure I have one in my spares box from an incomplete convertible kit. I wont be able to check until next friday though as I'm away working at the moment. If you send me a pm next week to remind me I can look then
  15. Weird cars Post em here.

    The second two transits are actually the same van too. When the mk3 transit was released ford swapped the front to the new shape, and put a v6 cosworth engine out of a granada in it. I got to sit in the first version (second pic) when I was a kid, and i still have the matchbox toy of it I was given that day, though its pretty bashed now
  16. Weird cars Post em here.

    Under the van body it's a simple smashed gt40 racecar ford had hanging about a workshop
  17. Detriot diesel 6.2 or 6.5TD engine as a model?

    there's one in the meng hummer h1. Its 1/24 scale but pretty nice
  18. This started as a part box resin cab and a mercedes actros chassis and engine. The wheels are from a 1/18 diecast. The engine is mounted behind the cab thus making the bed pretty much useless, lol. I zee'd the chassis behind the engine to help get it low . The paint really needs a sunny day to bring out the colours. It has a black top fading through purple to blue lower then coated in pearl clear and lots more clear with lots of stripes and all of them are pinstriped by hand using artists pigment pens and gel pens.
  19. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    these were originally designed by chrysler for the chinese. Compare the chassis to one of the letter series car kits and you'll see it
  20. Thankyou sir, that all the info I needed as i can work out the rest from there, thanks again
  21. Hi Folks, I'm hoping one of you could give me some measurement of the moebius tyre and rim set tyres, preferably in milimetres. I'm looking for the overall height, width and the size of the hole for the rim. I have a project I've been working on between other builds (custom 1955 bedford s type) and the italeri tyres I have are too tall to suit it. Also measurements for amt 1/25 tyres would also be appreciated Thanks for reading
  22. KFS Holmes Wrecker Body

    keep looking on the kfs website, very often they have extra/seconds castings in the special parts/scratch building sections. It might not hurt to shoot them an e mail too, never know whats left over
  23. A quicky build compared to what I usually build, kit arrived on saturday and is only needing me to make up the bed floor once i find some old looking wood or a method to age wood fast. I tried to give it the look of an on the road project with the underside all done up and the body left as it was. Apart from the firewall and chassis, all the paint is dry brushing with no primer, using humbrol enamels, and waxed with skotchbrite while still slightly tacky. I also used the same brush for all the painting without cleaning between colours.
