    Great looking custom. Love the colour. The chop looks great too. I have yet to chop the top on one of these, might have to change that i think.

    The fadeaway fenders are an option in that kit. So many optional extras in that kit the 48 ford custom coup.
  3. Back to the hobby - 68 dart hemi

    From here color was applied. Engine and chassis are out of the box, no changes. Couple with color. Last two are showing the difference between the matt paint and then with clear over that. I enjoyed this build. Not over the top looking but still you know things have changed. I haven't really mentioned the hood but it was sectioned same amount as the body. These types of builds aren't so scary If you have a plan and start out mild. I've made a few mistakes along the way but in the end they're only models and i do this for enjoyment. Thanks for checking this out.

    Major body work done. Remarked the door lines and then Started on the front end with fitting the grill. The headlights are the kits headlight beezel but sanded them down smaller for a frenched look. I used headlight covers from the parts box but can't remember if those smaller lights are from the kit or not. Attached the rear tail lights. I moved the bumpers closer to the body. Meantime i had cut down the interior to fit as well. The firewall also had to be modified.

    Next up was the fadeaway fenders. Just got them at the angle i liked which flowed from the front fenders, cut of the bottom of them off and filled the gap between fender and door. Almost ended up with a running board look to the bottom of the fender.

    Guy take that plunge. It's only plastic is my motto. Start subtle is my advice and then cut more out next time. Next step is to change the angle of the rear window and change the deck lid. Pics in this step are a little limited so i posted a stock body to show the changes. I cut thhis panel out in one pieace. I did this by cutting just before where the roof starts to slope downwards, I didn't cut all the way across the body. I left the widows as and left the sides of the roof in place. Sounds odd and wish i had a photo of this step but i don't. When I Glued this pieace back in i changed the angle of the rear window and lowered the deck lid height. In a way pie cutting the deck lid. As i moved the window back it created a gap which i filled and added putty to reshape this area. End result in primer

    Thought I'd show my work of one of the 48 fords i recently posted in under glass. I started the mods by sectioning the body 3mm. When it came to the rear fenders i only removed 2mm, giving myself a little room to work with. A pic of the end result, then the body mods.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Will have to look up that Barris custom Oldcarfan27, I have a build in the works very similar to that.

    Really nice build. Well done. Love the photography.
  12. Filling and sanding continues. Getting closer to where it needs to be. Windshield molding will need to be remarked. Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.

    Thanks guys. The color is a enamel Revel 55 matt light green which i clear coated. I really like the color. I can show my work if people would like? Have already started another one of these. Going to be pretty radical roadster but have put that on hold, other kits to finish first. Chassis pic. Thanks for looking.

    Here are a couple of customized coupes. Plum Crazy version, body mods are only the 2mm sectioning. All other custom changes are from the kit. Chassis, interior, wheels and tyres are per the kit. I added a blower to the flathead from the AMT 57 chevy kit. Light green version, body mods are sectioned 3mm and changes to the rear window and deck lid area. Added the fadeaway fenders which i changed the angle they sat at. Chassis, motor, interior, tyres and wheels are as per kit. Really enjoy these kits, so many options included. Have a couple more in the stash. Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.
