    So is there anymore info on the bronco ? Frankly I figured moebius would've been the company to release the bronco . 
  2. randx0 added a post in a topic It has finally arrived. Now I go to work.   

    It's coming along nicely , all I would add is keep it fun on this first one . try not to get bogged down with doing everything "right"  . build it , ask questions you want answers to , and then when you're done assess the job you did and decide where you want to improve . good luck !

    does anyone know what year and model these are I can't quite nail it down . I think they are around '74 and 250cc but my vintage dirt bike knowledge is limited.

    Thanks John , David thanks for the ideas ,I was going to try to get the radiator in the front by tilting it but if it won't fit it will go in the back . the back seat will be gone so finding room should not be a problem .I do plan on using the stock rims widened . more later thanks for looking .

    Thanks for the comments , I had a hard time with the shape of the rear window after looking at it , you guys are right and it will probably change eventually .

    I like the idea you had of using 2 different chassis to change the stance . can't wait to see more .

    Hemi front engined VW bug
    This is a Gunze Sangyo 56 bug being bashed with a Revell 41 Willys . You know how different kits end up sitting around your bench and once in awhile it sparks an idea well that is what happened here . I noticed a lot of similar shapes between the two kits and thought why not . It's basically the VW body with the chassis interior engine from the Willys . the goal is trying to make it look like a stockish VW including the interior . The Hemi should fit under the hood leaving only the fat rear tires to give anything away . More photos later with a little more detail on what has been done . Thanks for looking , feel free to make suggestions or share your own similar build .

    Revell 49 Mercury
    I started this with the intent of building it out of box . After looking at the side view I just didn't like the rear window area so i cut it out moved it back filled it and used a vw bug windshield as a template for the new backlight . It is probably a little low but I'm ok with that. I also added a quad headlight clip on the front and smoothed out the peak on the hood . I filled the rear wheel openings and plan on radiusing both front and rear . still figuring what to do with the rear deck and tailights . Thanks for looking , feel free to make suggestions and criticize .

    Thanks Ron . Got it glued in ! The windshield frame/door jamb unit fit pretty good and really stiffened up the whole body it doesn't sag at all any more . Next up a little putty and lots of sanding . Thanks for looking .
