  6. took the 41 lincoln continental parts body and started to make a coupe. this is one of those 25 - 30 year projects. made a deck on it years ago, couldnt decide on windshield till about 8 - 10 years ago, then finally pulled it out to try and finish. had to lower rear deck some and put ridge down middle. would fit right right together on a continental kit but i always have to be different. it has lenghtened altanomad wagon chassis and engine.

  11. started with a screwbottom 58 ford thunderbird hardtop, kitbashed with 57 del reo wagon. seen a few of these i really like the idea, even real pics. never cared for back wheel placement, so i moved mine back.
  12. built from 52 hudson race car ( because that what i had) back of 50 chevy cab and bed

  18. so ive cast my master and now have got back to building it. little changes here and there to make merc from 39 ford. will offer in future
  19. this is a resin body kit from ebay. used chassis from 53 ford under it. finished 4/2/20211
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
