  1. Thanks for the many nice comments. I really appreciate them. @misterNNL the engine is scratch built. It took me some time to find the right parts but finally it was pretty simple If you click on this link you can read the story behind the build: https://www.modelcarforum.de/showthread.php?t=39649
  2. Inspired by the famous 1939 Plymouth Air Radial Truck, I decided to build my own version of an air radial-engine truck. For my model, I opted for the 1948 Ford F-1. So it's not a 1 to 1 replica. The original vehicle, I think the interior too cheesy. That's why I've made it a little cleaner and more decent. All modifications (complete engine, complete interior etc.) are built from scratch. You can read the entire conversion report here (its a german forum but you don`t have to register): https://www.modelcarforum.de/showthread.php?t=39649
  3. After 3 months of building, this project ist completed just in time for the sunny weekend. The idea behind the model was to rebuild a classic (Mopar) muscle car with modern racing technology or to bring attachments, materials and components on the current state of the art, however, the optics should largely correspond to the then time. The conversion report can be found here (its a german forum but you don`t have to register to read the articles): https://www.modelcarforum.de/showthread.php?t=39193
  4. absolut clean and professionell build.
  5. Wow what a great and clean build. Love the rusty look. I also like the little details (antenna, gear shifter, Michelin-man). Everything looks very realistic.
  6. This small rocket has been finished since the end of December and slept in the showcase until today. After seeing the sun in the last few days, I was able to make pictures of the finished model outdoors in the sunshine. The real role models and the associated conversion report can be found here (its a german forum but you don`t have to register to read the articles): https://www.modelcarforum.de/showthread.php?t=38903
  7. After almost 3 months of building, this project is finally finished The model was the 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner from AutoWorld. All in all, this conversion was really fun for me, even if the quality of the original vehicle leaves a lot to be desired. You can find the complete conversion report here: I start with a picture that shows the original condition and then some pictures of the reconstruction.
  8. The last details in the engine bay are ready. From nuts M0,8 and brass rods 0,5mm I simulated the hydraulic lines of the brake booster. Even a massive fuel pump has taken place at the firewall.
  9. The doors and the trunk lid have also received a few details in the form of locks.
  10. So slowly the project is coming to an end. I thought until the end, which color the interior should get. Actually I wanted to keep it in a shade of brown but brown does not fit with this type of vehicle ... but he is a bit too bad for that. Since the external appearance is very restrained, I have decided to red. More precisely, a ruby red ... that goes a bit dark red. The Roadrunner should look quite European and therefore the seats come from an Audi R8, as well as the steering wheel. The center console has a Ferrari 360 donated. The fit of the form perfectly pure and especially the 6-speed manual gear I wanted. The dashboard has also been redesigned. Air vents are photo etched parts of Tremonia. The seats in front and in the back have still received straps and the interior is finished.
