  1. thanx guys for kind words. alan the 53 stud, real car sound really interesting, maybe a future adventure of yours in kit form? yes they were darn near all kitbashed. the 32 was a newer kit but used the older fender assembly from a friend is all. and the 55 ford is a promo body and interior with amt 56 kit chassis and engine under it. actually the 40 panel is just chopped and body lowered down on fender assembly. 7 resin bodies, used in misc ways. all builds have been on here during this year. my model buddies say i cant build right out of the box. the tucker i had 1 day before i cut it in half to make a 2 door with nascar chassis and engine, 64 impala interior. have fun with them guys how ever you can. happy hollerdaz
  2. was a lot of thickness to cut threw to take off hood, slow, with one of those real thin fold up blades you put in xacto handle worked. split front fenders to move forward for slightly larger look between wheelwell and back of fender that merc has, that makes it different from ford. real mercs are 4 inches longer i believe. when i look at them both that is were i see a difference.
  3. i got this resin sedan body in some parts while back. thought id make it into a 38 ford sedan when i found a 38 ford resin front in some other parts at an earlier date. started snipping here and there to get them to fit together on a fender assembly they seemed to maybe work on. then i was looking at some picks of 38 and hump is more slant and back fender is longer. so it went back to a 36,lot easier, used bottom of a coupe body so it fit the fenders again. and started another for the resin 38 nose, using a 37 sedan body. so far before 38 was back in box and 36 was among active projects on bench. thanx
  4. used the yellow 40 ford cont kit, and front off matranga resin body. cut the hood off. little added here and there, tweek some. also had to make frame longer because the front fenders on mercs are little longer than fords. got a set of merc taillights from a small parts bag in salt lake some years ago and threw it in the kits box. oh back of matranga went on a 41 ford custom. thanx
  5. stayed kinda bizzy for the year. but did spend alotta time just looking at what i have to build and thinking what if? outta town rest of year so done for year, last 3 were being worked on past 3 - 4 weeks, the 40 merc needs a grille ive been waiting for since ordered on 3rd dec, but with mail these daz, well. merry xmas to all and happy for the new year

  14. 57 chrysler was a custom version complete bag kit, i hand made the bed. never was a fan of headlights on this car so i changed them out with 58 chevy. painted it french blue first but felt it needed a little more zing, went with star spangled blue and gun metal. thanx for lookin finished build 9/11/2020
