    Wow! This has been something else to watch. Took me days to go through this a little at a time. It is very encouraging. I like to scratch build but nothing like this. This project makes smaller projects seem more do-able. Shawn, you've just reminded me the importance of slowing down. Take the time to do it right. This rings true in other aspects of life as well.

    That is a beautiful car and you are doing a great job. I've always like the original P1800s but that one is super gorgeous.

    Thanks guys. I have still been weathering the chassis a bit.

    Thanks guys. I think the tires came from the 41 Willys Street Rod kit. The rims were the steelies that come with tons of kits. I just had to widen them.

    Did some work to the chassis. Added shackles, shocks and the kit traction bars.





    Painted the front end Alclad steel and made a pair of shocks.



    Rims out back are finished.



    That's it for now. I've been opening up the rear wheel openings but for some reason photo bucket will not let me post these pictures. Anyway, lots to do. Thanks for looking.

    Thanks everyone. I used the spindle from the kit to save a little time. Maybe that is why it looks odd. But painted with tires on etc. I don't think you'll notice.

    66 Nova Gasser
    I wanted to finish a "shelf queen" I had started a while back but take it in a new direction. I was in the mood for a Gasser. I remember a Chevy II (62-65) when I was a kid painted white with fat tires sticking out past the fenders. It was rough but cool all the same.

    First I had to redo the molding I shaved off before realizing it was suppose to be there weather the chrome was still there or not.



    Then I cut off the front end.



    And rebuilt a new one.



    Here it is in primer. Will adds the extras after paint.



    I have a question. Does anybody know when they started using the MT Sportsman street tires? That is what I am using here. Thanks for looking.

    41 Woody On the Move
    This is built from the Amt 41 Woody kit. Not bad, decent detail but the fit could have been better.

    I set this car around the early 60's. I guy moving West (or something like that).













    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks for your input guys.
  14. noname added a post in a topic that Willys   

    Ya I wanted it to have that look but with paint not primer.
  15. noname added a post in a topic 1/25 to 1:1 conversion question   

    Thanks guys. Ya I think it boils down to what looks right alot of the time. Just for fun here is a picture of a chair I made that has dimensions slightly larger than the 1:1 chair (with a different back). Funny thing is, the smaller chair looks better in this pic than the above one. Go figure. Maybe because it is a little more close up?

    Anyway, I think they both work for this scale. They just look like different sized chairs. What do you think?
