    One of these days, I hope to get an invite to the hills of WV. I think I could learn a lot from you.

    I have a Revell Hurst Olds Cutlass if that's close enough.

    One helpful hint, read the instructions! There's a couple of quirks that makes it more than chosing the five drivers you thing that are going to finish the highest.

    Gerald's color choices are a pretty good match for period color magazine articles. SS/DI had a great article on this car.

    Other possibilities include the AMT or the Revell Willys. The Revell kit has a QC that with work could be usable. I'm not sure about the AMT Willys but their instructions show one. I didn't care for either one under a gasser.

    Hadn't thought of the auction site.

    Its for a current style street rod built in the nostalgia style which of course means a loose interpretation of what really was used. The engine more than likely will be the Buick from the 29 Ford or the Caddy from the Revell Merc.

    I remember the Monogram sprints having nice QCs. Just have to find it. The Model T's I hadn't thought of.

    Quick Change rearend
    I'm looking for a quick change rear end to go under a street rod. Any suggestions as for what kit to look for to steal one from?

    Enjoy! I tried to get my son into models. He'll buzz through a die-cast but never has finished a glue kit. Now that he's seventeen he's into real cars and girls. 
  11. iBorg added a post in a topic Can we see some scratchbuilt things?   

     Your stuff is pretty good. The speedster is quite nice. I'd like to see a in-progress build of the altered.

    Revell Rat Roaster
    I'm looking for a kit of the Stacey David Rat Roaster '32 Ford. 
     
    If you've got one, you're willing to turn loose of, please let me know.
     
    Thanks,

    Not the overall appearance but the do-dads. Although if you were take the wings etc. off yours it could be an interesting to start for a street rod.
     
  15. iBorg added a post in a topic Do you make tube chassis's?   

    Try Evergreen Plastic. The tube will hold shape with a brass rod inside. I've bent the rod by using a metal jig and magnetics to hold it in place and then heating it to hold shape. The trick is heating it enough to hold the shape and not melt it.
