      Fantastic and unusual to say the least. I too thought it was a 1-1.
    I have only ever seen the old Corgi version. Does the real thing still exist?
    And what about the racers on the transporter, are they kits or die casts or even more scratch built. 
    Stunning

    Love the  new 'slant' on the roof chop(pun intended). Better than the out of box chop, this one flows so much better in my opinion though I prefer the fully framed doors myself. Cool colour too

    Hello, also from Europe(at the moment haha) and welcome to the board. I also build motorcycles(Hayabusa ) and cars. 
    Enjoy the posts , Johnny Tee

    Remember this in the hobby shops back in the 60s-70s. There was something similar that had a hemi powered toilet in it with twin tubs by Bob Reisner?

    I'm a fan of both the original and the Bat. Some of the ideas would be used on production cars though the bubble tops were never really in the running.
    As to the comments on all the junk Barris put on it! Hey, it was for a TV show about a crime fighter. You don't hear many adverse comments on James Bond's Aston DB5 with all the guns and stuff and that was just as far out as gadgets go.
    All the arguments count for nothing if Barris had not bought it, the car may very well have been scrapped looking at the state it was in when he got it.
    Fantastic, in both versions

    Lovely model and nothing wrong with the stripes, just a little trim at the grill.

    To resurrect an old thread
    Just got back from Germany and had a trip on the Ring. Made it safely round and set a record for the slowest lap in a Peugeot 406 Diesel Estate

    Thanks for those answers, very helpful

    Thats gorgeous, especially in black  
    I love the 60 Cadillac, probably because I owned one(see my avatar ) and more so that the much  more popular 1959.   
    This looks really great, is it a Modelhaus body kit with their front and rear ends? Just looking though, the side trim looks a little more 59ish than the 60 as 1960s Eldorado had two smaller bands of chrome trim following a similar line to the 59 with paint separation in between. 
    Cheers for doing a 1960s, John.

    I have done it once or twice just as a comparison but with no intention of hi-jacking someone else post. If anyone took any interest in my pic, discussing what I had used or done etc I would start a new topic on mine.

    Many thanks, really great help  
    Many on here have said they had to re-chop the Revell custom Mercury so I would rather start from a stock kit.

    Love the chop  Looks so much neater than the Revell kit. Have you any build up shots of where you cut it please.
  13. HotRodaSaurus added a post in a topic Kenneth Howard A.K.A. Von Dutch   

    There was an episode of American Pickers where they were raving about a motorcycle Dutch built, a combination of an old Harley Davidson with a VW engined hybrid. Much as I love Dutch's style etc, personally I think this bike just looked like what it was, a Harley with a VW engine in it. Nothing special, did not have any real 'Classic' look about it, the only real thing that made it interesting was Von Dutch built it.
    The way Mike Wolfe was going on about it you would have thought it was the greatest custom bike ever built when in fact it just looks ugly(to my eye). I also think Mike Wolfe used up the show's quota of the word 'Cool' just on the bike
  14. HotRodaSaurus added a post in a topic Red Baron From Monogram   

    Great model Bernie, I have an old original to restore, one day  . Just don't seem time these days but thats life.
    Hey Bob, just how many $$$ to chrome the full size, and worse, how many hrs polishing it out 
    And for anyone visiting the Wiesbaden area of Germany, here the Baron finally lies. This is a family grave as the Red Baron was originally buried in both France and (East Berlin)Germany. His stone is at the front.
    Anyone wishing more details PM me please as this is a modelling forum 

  15. HotRodaSaurus added a post in a topic Renwal '66 Pierce Arrow 4 door Exner concept   

    Only the second revival I have seen built up, looks great. 
    The profile looks vaguely like an E Type coupe(XKE), the sort of thing customisers had a go at in the 70s
