  1. Looking great! Using the interior bucket is a nice idea! Simple, but oh so smart!
  2. Oops, my fault! I always thought the definition of Hi-Boy was the frame itself, being not notched or z´d to lower the car (for I used the original frame, narrowed for the channeling just like the original and not the optional z´d frame from the kit to maintain the slight rake and the correct ride height). Never too old to learn something! Thanks for the rectification!
  3. Hi there, I was one of the lucky guys who managed it to get one the Revell ´30 Model A Coupe kits for the original price shortly after it was released and I still didn´t build it when it was discontinued. It kept lying on my shelf for nearly two years because I didn´t dare to touch it. It actually started to talk to me. First it said: "Sell me, for a profit!" But I did not want to do that. Then it said: "Build me, it might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!" And I finally gave in. But it had to be something special! I remenbered that one of my childhood heroes, professional skateboarder Steve Caballero (member of the legendary Bones Brigade, a skate crew sponsored by Powell Peralta, alongside Tony Hawk) had a Model A some years ago. The Rod was featured in Traditional Rod and Kulture magazine in 2006: A beautiful Rod, isn´t it? It was originally built in the 50s by Buddy Dughi, singer of the rockabilly combo The Hot Rod Trio. Back then it was blue with copper scallops. Around the Millennium Steve bought the car and had it restored and repainted at Gambino Customs. Later it was sold several times, current owner is german skateboard legend Titus Dittmann. But for now, enough said about legendary skateboarders, legendary model kits and legendary Hot Rods, here is my version of "The Coupe De Cab": The build features a wired engine with a scratch built magneto, custom made scallops decals, tires from thepartsbox (AUS), taillights from Revell´s 32 Ford 5 window and a spare parts trunk handle. I also made a set of Powell Peralta skull logos for the side windows... ...a H.A.M.B. plaque for the rear window... ... a skate wheel topped shifter and, of course, an original Steve Caballero skateboard fort he interior: The original license plate is framed by a PE part from Scaleproduction: I hope you like it and I hope that Revell will give us this awesome kit back again someday... ps: While I was building the coupe I found a Hot Wheels die cast of a ´32 3 window version of "The Coupe de Cab" with a vice versa paint scheme: I might want to Build that as well someday in the near future... Greetings from Cologne, Germany
  4. Nice Colors and I love your saddlebags!
  5. Awesome! Turned out really nice!
  6. Beautiful! Great choice of colors and well detailed! Nice work!
  7. Nice work. Not my favorite style for Deuce but definitely different and therefor cool! Looking forward to see it finished!
  8. I really like this project because I have liking for more-door rods and customs, too. The wheels are looking really cool under the fenders! For this modern style of Hot Rod I would choose the top left or bottom right steering wheel.
