  1. Welly Tires Dissolving Display Case?

    Is there anything that can be done to prevent that from happening?
  2. 39/41 Wagon Rod

    That's way cool.
  3. 72 type 2

    That looks great.
  4. Nice collection. I own 2 1:1 big bodies. I have a couple resin kits that are also long term projects.
  5. The truck looks great. I'm curious about those big bodies too.
  6. more retro fit chevrolet

    Nice job on the wagon.
  7. I wanted the wheels to fit outside the bed but the kit axle wasn't wide enough. So I glued some plastic rods inside the wheels. And cut them down to the width I needed and drilled them out to accept the axle. Now they clear the inner bed sides. Im going to be moving soon, so their probably won't be any more updates for a while, hopefully this mockup with the wheels and tires will hold you guys over for a while.
  8. 1/25 Revell Cadillac Escalade

    The EXT kit is already the right length, you'd just have to convert the rear.
  9. I kind of went a different way with mine.
  10. Thanks for the comments guys. I made a little more progress. I cut the bed side open to accept the fenders and, of course, for wheel clearance. And lined up the fenders. I'm going to do a little more body work on the fenders before I permanently attach them. More next time.
  11. 1936 Toyoda AA - street rod

    That's cool. I'm surprised how well those big wheels suit that car. And a 2JZ sounds awesome.
  12. Like I said before, I'm going to need as much tire clearance as possible, so I cut the tops off the rear fenders. And added some plastic to make them taller and make the body line match up with the cab while I was at it. More next time.
  13. I drew out where I would need to make relief cuts to widen the body. After I made the cuts I lined up the cabs and glued them together. I like working with some of the older AMT kits, the plastic is softer and lends itself well to customizing. More next time.
  14. Thanks for the comment. The Foose chassis 'not a bad idea, but I think I'm going to try to make my own frame with this one. With all the modifications I would have to do, i think it would be easier. I got an extra cab from a member on another forum and made my initial cuts to make it a crew cab. This will be the 3rd time I've made a crew cab from 2 '55 cabs. At this point it probably would have been easier to have just cast the first one. More next time.
  15. I had an idea for a 55 Chevy truck build and after checking my stash, I realized I had almost everything I would need, so I went ahead and got started. I started by cutting out the inner fenders for wheel clearance, I want this one to lay rocker. I then added new inner fenders made out of sheet plastic. With the wheel/tire combo I'm using ill need as much clearance as I can get. I had an extra set of rear fenders, so I glued each set together to get some extra width. Then I cut out one side of each so i could have extra wide fenders. More next time.
