  1. 1948 Chevy

    Painted the body in this shade of copper, I like how it turned out.
  2. 1948 Chevy

    Thanks. They are from the Moebius 54 Hudson. Fits well in the tyres from the Chevy and looks very crisp and clean.
  3. 1948 Chevy

    First of all, excuse me for crappy mobile pics, didn't charge the battery in the real camera. But I found this kit cheap, which is good, at least in Sweden they are a bit rare and costly. Low on spoke wheels = never wrong on a Chevy this age? Really bad picture but.....painted the engine block copper metallic And the frame Made lowering spindles, maybe not the most accurate way to slam it, though the easiest.
  4. Trying to make a project thread of something I have done some small work on every now and then... The cab is painted with yellow metallic from some Belton rattlecan, and then black metallic, touchup paint from some Mercedes or BMW, don't remember which now. Over everything there is gold glitter spray to simulate metalflake, and of course sealed with some layers of clearcoat. The interior will be white and oxblood. I normally don't understand the thing with old bakelite steering wheels in old trucks but I think that it fits OK this time. The steering wheel in the kit is wrong anyway, it's the ugly steering wheel from the older F12 trucks (like a supersized Volvo 240 wheel), not the more modern FH steering wheel that actually looks pretty good.

    Chassis glued together, painted and sectioned to get rid of the almost 4x4-like ride height it gets out of the box.

    A yellow Esprit was a childhood dream for me....

    Quite a nice engine in this kit! This model is said to have problems with the suspension sitting too high. The easiest way of solving it is to cut down the frame tunnel to allow it to slide up further in the body. So I did such a modification which seems to have turned out well.

    I think you could fit my Mini into your crankcase.

    Engine and gearbox glued together and painted.

    One thing is for sure, beating you in having the most wicked engine will be hard.

    I had to do some cutting of the floorpan since the limited space under the hood requires remote mounted radiator and turbo. Though since I am planning a conversion to coilovers in the rear and doesn't need the weird rubber spring elements the Mini are using, this will probably be OK. I am thinking about having a beam between the rear shock mounts to beef things up instead. Also I painted the floorpan a rear sleeper color that the body will get later - brown with satin clearcoat. Though I wanted the engine bay and frame rails to be black, so black it is. Don't ask me why, I just wanted it this way......
  13. Compared to the 90s version of the AMT 37 Chevy convertible, it's a beauty....
  14. Triumph Drag Bike: Finished "Outside" Pictures

    It could as well pass for a real bike if there was no size references in the background. Absolutely stunning.
