  1. this is a resin body kit from ebay. used chassis from 53 ford under it. finished 4/2/20211
  2. added a 58 chevy panel wagon rear section onto a 58 slammer body. just set it on a 66 street nova chassis for a look
  3. so i removed skirts and made wheel rear wheel wells. decided to cut hood off. will use the 39 ford sedan interior, and a 66 nova chassis trimed to fit and engine. had to move front axle forward to fit wheel well. now trying to decide weather to cast some of my projects this time before i get into finishing them. dont know if there would be enough interest in my interests.
  4. put a dart chassis and 440 magnum in and under and 69 corvette interior, cut the hood off. trying to decide if i want to cast it now before i start finishing.http://public.fotki.com/damodelguy/ for my many projects and pics
  5. always liked the look of a nice low 51 studebaker 3 window. so here goes, looked at a 36 ford roof but used piece of roof cut off a 39 chevy to make a convertible years ago, liked the roundness of the back corners best. but the back needed to curve out more so added a piece of plastic to reshape. cut off back of old roof, filled it in, split my new roof because its to wide, mated to existing. after in place and cleaned up, cut shape for new back window. this was a last night project. sometimes you have to go at it when it hits ya. thanx
  6. picked up a matrange resin body because i needed to make a grille from it for last merc build. was trying to decide if i wanted to make it into a sedan or a coupe. coupe roof is very different than ford but not as attractive. so matranga resin body mated with a 39 ford sedan body. made front fenders longer because merc was visible wider than ford. altered front of rear fender little, and reshaped back window little. want to take the skirts off and put a well like real pic. thanx
  7. took awhile to get back into it, but after month and 1/2 im bit again. resin 36 humpback body, cut bottom off and put bottom off 36 amt coupe kit for nice fit. interior made from 37 sedan kit. chassis was from a built kit i picked up. thanx finished 2/8/2021
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
