  1. so theres a speaker deck in the kit, not on plan, used it behind the back seat facing back. just getting some base colors on. used kit motor short block with exhaust but put a blower on it. still deciding on it, cuz cutting hole in hood. 34 is getting main coated and sitting on own axles. took your advice and found some volvo tractor wheels from a bag kit i picked up for parts. thanx
  2. more filling and fileing, put molding details all around, frame, need to figure out axles, cowl is now attached along with rear fenders and front fenders.
  3. so this got started june 19, but this weekend the 26th i messed with the bus. the wagon was a panel wagon that i cut the panels out of. didnt have a amt 58 so i checked out the revell version i had. looked like its close on lining up and it has a trunk detail that might help. the back seat for impala is cool but wrong, so i casted the top of the front seat to use for back. then i got side tracked for a bit. will be back

  5. ive had theses pics for awhile. finally started drawing and cuttin.
  6. this was a built kit molded in black and painted lime when i got it. after a purple bath, the paint didnt really come off. any body that knows of me, i like different. had a pic i came across for some insparation. chopped it, moved the rearend back so more of the back door was there for getting in back seat. used cut off pieces from opposite sides to reconstruct woody framing and cast a small piece of curve to finish the curve. first thought fenderless but back wells were so huge, tire gets lost, fenders big too, but not as big. was going to go black walls but tried some white walls and had my interest, then, the modelhause big n littles white walls and i smiled. thanx, enjoy built 6/20/20

  8. this started as a 47 merc pickup cab that i wanted to convert to a ford. i told the guy of this project, in the box extra was this ford cab also. but it had a narrow hood area. cut the two in half and cut hood from body once i got everything lined up. 50 ford bed and runningboards, chassis and interior, rear fenders are 40 ford, 40 ford car dash , prostock motor from parts bin.
  9. very nice, creative conversion, clean and natural looking, good color, very clean
  10. really hard to forget your first big deuce, conversions
  11. really nice look, just enough altering to really add to the appearence. nice rod
  12. i picked this resin 51 nash panel wagon up on ebay back in 8/16. it was basic moreless a body kit with a 1 piece solid chassie to hold axles and tires and wheels. was always thinking a street rod, but this thing just begged for the nasty treatment. the vet kit allowed me to keep the hood solid and still get nasty under the hood. whole chassis and interior panels were from a corvette pro street kit #7157 . thanx built 6/1/20
  13. i like different. when i got a 47 mercury pickup resin cab my first thought could i make a ford with it. i already built the merc pickup, so i dicided to get another to try it. i think i had mentioned what i was thinking of doing to the guy. i got about 6 bodies from this guy this time, in the box was this extra cab. im thinking maybe it was a tractor cab being so narrow, dont know, but heres what i did, heres were im at. cut the 2 in half and swapped fronts. the 47 had the 40 rear fenders but i really thought about using the 50 fenders.
  14. amazing build, so clean, crisp, looks real, color, and mix in interior look very realistic, great choose. awesome job of building
  15. amt 33 willys coupe kit, 32 ford phantom vickie. vickie: the chassis is complete, floor, seat, dash, door panels were shortened little and trimed for back of coupe roof. the willys motor pins lined right up. just shorten. built 5/19/2020
