  5. Pro Mod -63 Corvette

    .. When I cut the doors open on the body it turned out exceptional bad and ugly. The doorgap was sooo uneven and rough. Some weeks agoe I got an idea how to fix this problem...that probably should work...bodyfiller and aluminumtape. I started to get the opening on the body as perfect as I could. I sanded the edges and curves smooth and made the opening just the way I wanted. Now I want the same shape on the door as on the opening...and all bodylines must blend in perfectly. I covered the thinn edge with aluminum tape all arround the opening. I mixed the bodyfiller/hardener and added a few drops of aceton to get the filler thinner. Then I applyed the filler on the aluminum tape and gently fixed the door in the opening. I let the filler cure about 1h before I removed the door from the tape. After some cleanup and sanding it was time to try it on. ...some minor adjustments required, but I think it turned out great... Thanks for looking in / Rick
  6. Pro Mod -63 Corvette

    Hi all and thanks for all nice comments! Modeling going pretty slow here, but I stole some time to make some progress on this build. The regulator on this air bottle was made from small brass and aluminum tubing. This bottle are going to feed the shift system and Lenco airpods. Rear coilovers. I used the same method on this one as I did on my silver pro mod Nova. Airbrushed Koni yellow. ...

    I knew about the fenders, but I didn´t want to put such small ugly fenders on this one. I also knew that an A/SR must have a passenger seat...but the disc brakes....hmm. Anyway, I will not rebuiltd that front suspention...trust me It´s a model...and I had a lot of fun building it. Thank u guys for all comments, I´m glad you like it!!! Thanks!!! / Rick

  15. 32 Ford A/SR - FINISHED

    Update. Here is some pics. of the last pieses. I made a new undercarrige for the seat, scratchbuilt from Evergreen rod. This one look better and more accurate. The steering wheel was stolen from Revells "Big John" 41 Willys kit. I masked the rim with Vallejos "Liquid mask" and then airbrushed the center with Alclad stailess steel. Tachometer decal from Slixx. Housing made from K&S alu tubing. The fire extinguisher. / Rick
