    You can't do it yourself. Send Harry a PM and he should be able to take care of it.

    Ditto.

    Yep... no more overriders.
    Weird you mention a 392 Hemi, as that's what I plan to put in mine. The one I'm using is from the '41 Willys, though.

    If I hadn't just glued the little mounting pads for the front leaf springs to the kit chassis (just before re-reading this thrread), I could have dug out an AMT '56 and done a quick test-fit for you. Just eyeballing things as they sit, however, I think that idea might have merit. 
    I know, it's just that calling it a gasser with the engine in the stock location seems kind of "blah", ya know?

    No option for 10% engine setback. So it's not even a gasser. Sigh...

    Nice kit of a seldom-seen subject. You'd have to go back in time to about late '85 to see a 1:1 '84 Daytona that clean.
    Wow... Black Moon Rising. I remember it being a pretty terrible movie by John Carpenter standards. I also remember the scene right at the beginning where Tommy Lee Jones tries to buy a cup of coffee at a gas station, but before he can do that, it is robbed. All I'll say is don't make TLJ angry before he's had his morning cup of Joe.

    I've never had much luck with finishing stuff in community builds, and I haven't built a full-blown rat rod in quite a while. That being said...
    ... count me in.
    I'll come up with something.

    Everybody can relax, Bill found the car. Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end... Only $4800. Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring.

    1930 Model A Coupe
    This, as you probably already guessed, is the new Revell kit. I modified the frame and suspension, reworked an AMT '29 Model A grille shell, made a tall piston shifter, added some military jeep seats, and powered it with a Ford 300 straight six fitted with a junkyard turbo setup. I left it in my rust-colored base coat, after just being smitten with how it looked on a '48 Ford truck I recently finished, and was working on alongside this.

    1948 Ford Farm Truck
    This was a '50 F-1 kit that I got from a fellow modeler years ago. It sat for a bit, until I decided to do it as an old farm truck. I'd originally planned to build it up as something of a junkyard-parts cobble job, so I decided to keep with that theme as well. Close proximity of a Schieber goat on the workbench led me to make it a livestock hauler. 
    The truck as a coil-spring 4x4 front axle and transfer case from a '78 F-150, engine, transmission, and radiator from a '69 F-100, a '57 Ford hood ornament, '83 T-Bird grille, '65 Mustang tail lamps, and other assorted cast-off doodads. The rear body was scratchbuilt from basswood, plastic, and metal rod. The baby goat and sheep are Schieber pieces. I'd originally planned to weather the hood and cab to match the fenders, but I liked the way the rust base came out so well that I decided to just make that the overall color for those parts... and repeat it on a '30 Model A body.

    Finished up two Ford six powered models today. You've already seen an early form of the Model A...

    And then there's the '48 Ford farm truck...

    I'll do full Under Glass postings for each when I feel like it.

    Feel free. This isn't a build-off, just a place for like-minded modelers to post their stuff.

    Thanks, guys.

    Thanks guys. 
    The engine came from Trailer Trash Kustomz. https://www.facebook.com/trailertrash.kustomzresins/

     Thanks, guys. 

    The hoses are just vinyl tubing I had laying around. The stuff that comes with most AMT semi tractor kits is the same material, and even the same diameter, as what I used. I inserted some thin wire into them so they'd hold their shape better.
