  1. Anyone for 'T'?

    Thanks Alan (and all) for your kind words. I was painting it during our Independence Day (Fourth of July) celebration time and got into the spirit with a red, whit and blue colo(u)r scheme.... -RRR
  2. Anyone for 'T'?

    Yeah that Icy Blue is interesting. If you lay it on too heavy it will get darker and it's easy to get lighter and darker patches if you're not careful. I was having trouble getting my i-phone camera to co-operate today so the color might not have come out so well in the pix. I should have set up outside but it was too hot and threatening rain..... -RRR
  3. Anyone for 'T'?

    Howdy campers...I finished this one up about a month ago and just got around to taking some (crappy, sorry) pix of my latest build.... -Body is from the Revell '27 T Touring kit, shortened about an inch to make a "Shorty T". It's painted Testors 'One-Hit' Icy Blue. -Engine is from various kits, block from the AMT '41 Willys Woody Wagon with heads from a Revell kit, headers and frog mouth scoops from Replicas and Miniatures, other parts from the parts box. -Frame is scratch built from Evergreen pieces. Spartan interior, bench seat hacked out of an AMT interior tub of unknown origin, scratch built fuel tank... -Tires from Modelhaus (RIP), wheels from Reps and Mins aftermarket chrome plated. Thanks for looking..... -RRR
  4. 1932 Ford 5-Window 60's Hot Rod

    It's got that East Coast style going on, reet Daddy-O!!!! (steering is completely over rated) -RRR
  5. AMT 32 Ford Tudor

    Well done, sir! I like the RHD conversion as well....-RRR
  6. 1930 Ford Coupe Flathead Hot Rod

    Another ADL home run (well, it is baseball season, after all....). Perfect stance, very tough looking... -RRR
  7. Space Rod 32

    A lot of imagineering going on here!!! This is amazing......can't wait to see more.... -RRR
  8. 1930 Model A coupe in white

    I was wondering if anyone would pick up on the remote filter. that engine is set up for a remote filter and since a filter would have interfered with the steering I figured I had to go the remote route. Unfortunately, there wasn't much room for it. Gotta love "through the frame" wiring and tubing.... -RRR
  9. 1930 Model A coupe in white

    Thanks for the kind words. MAGS last show in Tampa was this past April. they decided to pull the plug on it. Mike Alvarez is vowing to pick it up for next year and I hope he does. The MAGS guys always did it up right, but after two decades they got burned out on it.... -RRR
  10. 1930 Model A coupe in white

    Thanks, bro. Yeah those front wheels are hard to find an optional tire for, I've had those Satcos for years, I believe Satco is no more... -RRR
  11. 1930 Model A coupe in white

    Thanks, gents...not the best chop I've ever done but it was a quick enjoyable build... -RRR
  12. 1930 Model A coupe in white

    Just finished this one up. Based on the Revell kit (that we may see again some day???). I made several mods, chopped the top to where I think the kit should have been chopped originally, about 4.5 scale inches. I filled the roof to make it smooth, used a Ford small block originally in the old Matt Hay prostreet T-Bird. I used a 3 x 2 intake, headers from the AMT Phantom Vickie [sic] along with various other parts. Wheels and rear tires from the Revell '32 roadster, Satco super low profile front tires, QC rear, front suspension is from the Revell '32 series with the cross-steer setup...interior door panels from the Revell '32 sedan with the seat from the Revell '32 roadster. I was inspired by a car that was at the SE Nats in Tampa this past April. I haven't done a white build in awhile...thanks for looking.... -RRR
  13. '33 Willys sedan delivery

    So , here's where I'm at after some putty and sanding. I added a driprail across the top which helps to visually lengthen the body. I shot it with a guide coat of primer, still some areas to clean up and then threw together a quick mockup. Plans are for a vintage Hemi (Revell 'Miss Deal') , some zoomie headers of some sort...the tractor grille is a resin item sourced on ebay. This will be a slammer/curbside build...-RRR
