    27 T touring on 32 frame
    Started off as the T touring kit with the independent front suspension and jag rear end. I wanted to build something more traditional so I used the 32 frame from the revell model a roadster kit and a bunch of other parts from that. Other parts are from parts box. This is my first scratch built rod and I'm happy with how it turned out. It's not that accurate but it looks better built and on the shelf.

    Cool build subies are always nice, this car might go through tires really quickly though haha.

    Can't wait to see how it turns out when you're done building it.

    This is really really cool, I love phateons and the interior is perfect on this. It looks really good with just the red steelies too, without baby moons, and the tires fit great as is. I like how you kept it somewhat stock but still looks like a hot rod.

    Jimmy Flintstone 32 Bonneville Car
    I just got this Jimmy Flintstone body for a steal at the NNL east show for 2 bucks because the grill is slightly broken. I was wondering what I can use to glue it? Crazy glue? Or do I have to buy a special type of resin glue? And what do I need to clean up the body besides clearing out the flash from the casting? I've heard there is stuff on the body that needs to be taken off so the paint can stick. Thanks in advance for responses.

    Someone robbed the flatty and put a bee hive there.

    That weathering is the best/most realistic I've ever seen on a model.

    Do you scratch build your spindles? I need to attach wheels to my T touring on 32 rails but the axle doesn't have the attached spindles. The axle is like yours on here. How are you going to attach the wheels to the dropped axle?

    Awesome 32, what kit are the wheels and tires from?

    Keep going with the red, what wheels are you planning on using? Maybe red steelies with baby moons?

    I wouldn't do the panels but that's just me. I think what you got is perfect for that patina look and you nailed the colors.

    32 Ford Vicky
    Just finished my 32 Vicky. I was going for an original car that someone hopped up with somewhat basic parts. I wanted to keep the original wire wheels as well.

    Lakes roadster from extra parts
    The very beginnings of a first attempt at using spare parts to build a 29 Ford lakes roadster from the 40's ish. Criticism is welcome. This is a first try at piecing together a whole car from different model kits. I plan to channel the body and I have a model t style short pickup bed that'll hide the rear end.
