  1. That's how I do resin body/ chassis mounting. Ya I figured you would be.....since its your stuff😄
  2. I got this Revell van partly started in a trade with one of our board members. It had decent paint on it but I wanted a brighter color. The circle side windows and small rear roof opening were cut open so I opened the sun roof area too. The tire/wheel combo is from an MRC Firestone/Crager set. The body walls are curved so when you fit test the chassis it will not stay where you want it, so I installed a few chassis stops on both sides cured that.
  3. R.F. was pretty good, I always loved this stuff when I was growing up. Another show on Prime is Mad fabricators society and Go-Kustom television.
  4. Built from a scrap Paddywagon and some extra parts. This showrod kit can be found pretty easy and pretty cheap and you can build just about anything you can think of out of it. Part box front tires are wider and low profile. All the fenders were raised higher. All gold/chrome was removed. Paint was Tamiya....Humbrol and the wood tones are Vallejo wood colors and washes. Decals are from the Surrey version of Hogans Hero jeep.
  5. Whats not to like, its a gasser. Great start ,looks the part.
  6. Pretty much 90% done. Still need to paint and mount the fenders and a few other items. My daughter does crafts and made me some fringe for around the roof. This is the 3rd roof color , 1st pink, 2nd pearl white but black just worked the best. Im using the surrey decals from the Hogans Hero jeep, also made up a sign that will mount on the roof. Plan to paint the fenders white.
  7. The pink paint and wood tones are done. Still looking for fringe in the right color for the roof edges. Engine was pretty basic so no big project there.
  8. Color choice will be pink and white. Not ready to paint yet but pretty close. For the rear floor insert , Im gonna try a light wood tone brushed on in a few shades and clear coated. Added parts box front fender brackets and pieces of curved sprue to hang the rear fenders on.
  9. I liked Toms seating so much I just had to build an insert , but added a pole in the center.(Thank you for the ideaTom) The grille was had the word "1912 FUZZ" molded in so I sanded it off but had to make a screen to cover and give it back some detail , also split the back of the front bench seat in the cab.
  10. Looks awesome Tom , I love the colors. What's the roof made of balsa?
  11. Times like these are tough. So sorry to hear such sad news Vince.
  12. I was going to start this Courtesy Vehicle right after New Years but I was on a roll getting things done so I started it early. Im not sure if I should add frill to the existing roof or cut the roof in half and keep the drivers half and make the entire back half new. I had a few Paddywagon junkers and parts so thats what I started with. That also gave me the extra rear seats. Added lower profile front tires and removed all the gold color plating on the kit.
  13. I like it. Very different , thats what makes it stand out.
  14. If its this one it was listed as a Cord pickup, but resembles more of a Delahaye .
  15. Snuck this one in to complete this years builds . Really didnt know how to tackle building it, so I just kept changing stuff as I went along until I got it done.
