  1. I believe it is 1/8" x 1/4" rectangular stock. It might be a little bulky, but I'm gonna run with it.
  2. Let's see if I can keep my motivation up on this one. I've never done this level of scratchbuilding. Started with a Dodge Little Red Express kit. Lost the decals long ago, and don't really care for the stepside bed. Got a Styleside/smoothside bed from Trailer Trash Customs. Decided I was going to try my hand at building a frame, as I want this truck to be laid out. Here's where I am so far. Thinking a V10 from the Revell Sidewinder kit.
  3. It'll probably be further off the back. I just put it on where it would stay.
  4. Had a little downtime from work. Extended the front subframe to correct the wheelbase. Also fabbed a rear wing up.
  5. Got to spend a little time at the bench today. Too many other projects. Cut the floor out of the interior bucket to drop the body over the pan a bit more. Might remove a bit more. Think I need to lengthen the front subframe a bit, to center the front wheels. Looks like it'll place them too far back. Also leaning towards modifying this wing for it. Cutting the stock wing down doesn't do it for me. As a "pro-street" car, ideally it would have to be streetable, including a functional trunk lid. A cut down factory spoiler wouldn't allow for that. Plus, I'm digging how sleek it looks without it.
  6. Salvaging this from the scrap yard. One of the few remaining kits I have left from childhood. Built this box stock, originally in '92-'93. Time has not been kind to it. Couldn't trash it though, so what to do? Pro-street, yes? Kitbashing an AMT Coronet Pro Street chassis from the parts box, and possibly a DOHC Hemi. I think it looks neat without the wing, but wouldn't be a Superbird without it. Have to remake one of the wing uprights, as it broke on disassembly. Scratchbuilding has not been my forte, so this should be interesting.
  7. Neat idea. Looking forward to the finished product.
  8. New here at the moment. Figured I'd post my latest build as an introduction. Box stock other than some carpet flocking.
  9. New here from So. Cal. Been a modeler since I was about 9-10 (41 now). Off and on in my adult years, now coming back from a 5-6 year hiatus. Life, kids, other projects taking up most of my time. Been around on the yahoo mail group some years ago, and a few Facebook groups. Couple of my most recent builds:
