Awesome Build Bernie! And how cool is it for jerry to come on here and give you photos and such. Thats a stand up guy. I have not seen this movie, but it is right up my alley. I am almost done with my traditional-styled 29 Roadster pickup built from the "goodguys" 3 in 1 kit. I like my hot rods fenderless though of course!!! I will update my build thread tonight or tomorrow. I am in a wheelchair and snowed in for sure!!! 12-15" of snow tonight/tomorrow. Snow + wheelchairs = no good! I wish I was born about 1920. P.S. I LOVE your car jerry!
No reason why it wouldnt work, you will just have to take the time to let the glue dry between modifications.... I built (and Z'd) a similar frame for a 26 model T sedan I am building.... I built it from some leftover scraps from the original frame, and some rectanguar styrene strips they sell in packs. The key here is only doing a little bit, let it dry, continue.... See attached picture. Also, the flathead engine that can be seen in the upper part of the pic, the headers are made from a chrome parts tree.. (although not finished).... You are only limited by your imagination, and what you have laying around. I see oddball stuff that can be used for modeling all the time!
Since the OP's question has already been answered, I will not bother. But I WOULD like to say that I LOVE the paint scheme on your 55 Longbox! My 1:1 Mustang is that color of gray. I also like the look of those wheels on there, will make a nice restomod.
LOVE the Cyclones. Saw a BAAAADDDD Black 1:1 66 on ebay a few weeks back, I wanted it! My cousin has a 70 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler 429 CJ, 4 spd. Does anyone make a kit of this model? It is a pretty rare animal in the 1:1 world. I will be watching your build. What color are you thinking?
I am really enjoying this build! I had a van not to long ago, and have thought of recreating it in Plastic..... To Add to the fun it was a wheelchair -lift van, as I am a paraplegic. I have often thought of building a cool old 60's flat-front ford or dodge van and putting a wheelchair lift in it... And would like to do the same in 1:1! Thanks for the motivation, and good luck
Just flat-out amazing cranky!!!!!!!!!!! How long did it take you to get good at the weathering? I need to try some of this, I love "rattier" looking trucks and cars...... Awesome weathering, look so realistic with the decals and roof rack!!!!!! Awesome!!!
Very cool idea!!!!!!! I love it! I will also be watching this build. I like anything out of the ordinary, especially trucks, vans too. Just need to build some now for myself..... I do have a jimmy flintstone resin chopped 65 dodge van, for the little red wagon kit as a donor, but the little red wagon kit is too nice not to build on its own, so I will have to buy another......
