  1. Deuce de Madera: CUSTOM 32 WOODY

    That is excellent.
  2. I am the builder of that truck. Happy to share anything about it, or more pictures if you want them.
  3. Decal Color Copy

    I had never heard of this site. He's got a lot to choose from. Thank you.
  4. I would really like to have the Sandman dune buggy kit again. Still have the buggy I built in the early 80's. Recently found the decals are available to rebuild it too.
  5. Let's see that Austin built. I've got a couple of them to build. Have a resin prostreet chassis for one of them. Should be a fun build.
  6. Revell Highway Pioneers scale?

    Bowser; I believe i have a few of those kits that I'll never build. If you have any interest in them.
  7. Scratch built 32 ford

    That's really cool build.
  8. 33 Willy's HiBoy

    I found images of this black 33 Willy's and decided it would make an excellent build, what I didn't realize is the amount of body mods needed to do it. It has been lengthened in the body and hood, widened through the middle, sectioned(pie cut), A pillars leaned back, B pillars leaned forward, grill leaned back and rear wheel arches moved up. I will try my best to get close to that, but doubt I can build a perfect replica. I'm starting with a couple of AMT 33 Willy's kits. I started by un-chopping the kit body by adding 4" to the rear of the cabin area, which moved the roof forward 2", that gave me a perfect B pillar forward lean. The rear of the car was too long so i removed 6" from it right through the middle of the trunk area. Then I added 6" to the doors and leaned the A pillars back as I un-chopped some of the windshield height. Next came widening of the body in a pie form. Two inches at the cowl and three at the rear.. Then did a section cut out of each side. Next came the hood, I cut the rearmost 6" and the grill area off one hood and glued the 6" to the rear of the second hood. This made the hood 2" wider to match the new wider cowl. Here's some pics to help it make sense. Right now, between the two kit bodies and the Evergreen pieces, this body consists of at least 41 pieces I've glued together. The hood has about another five pieces so far.
  9. '60 Starliner mild custom

    Looks great. That's an awful lot of foil.
  10. steer car

    Now that's cool. Awful lot of scratchbuilding went into that didn't it.
  11. 69 Yenko Nova

    Looks great.
  12. Tognotti's King T Gluebomb recovery

    Excellent save. I have a couple of these that I need to rebuild.
  13. Here is another experiment using melted styrene leftovers from the red taillight sprue. The AMT 36 Ford kit does come with red taillights. This experiment is just making a drip to form a little round dot for a light. Not sure if this will work or not, will know in a couple days as it dries.
