  1. Thank you guys for all the good comments. I didn't know if somebody might be offended or not.
  2. The kit is AMT 23 delivery the last release of the kit. The back tires are Revell slicks with MPC funny car wheels. Thank you guys or the nice comments.
  3. Got it done. This is Auntie Freaks mobile boudoir. Not much room back there but everything working girl needs. Drinks, cash box, whore bath, and a bed. Thanks for looking. I forgot the red light.
  4. Simple and fun build. Will be a rolling brothel.
  5. The second part of my Roth race team. Trailers next. Took the Revell snap 57 body and the Miss Deal rolling stock that had to be streached a little and used some of the decals from the Roth 57 kit. Just a fun build.
  6. $5 find at a thrift store. Broken door handle and missing a chain on tailgate. Thought the mirror was gone but was in the cab. All fixable.?
  7. You would think so. But the decal fitment was really hard on this too. You got to look at it as going from one messed-up body onto another messed up body. At a real car show this is a good 20 footer. Lots of red touch up.
  8. bent the a-arms up more to lower the front. Cut off the mounts on frame for rear axle to bing it down little bit.
  9. Take one Foose truck and Ed Roth decal sheet you end up with Ed Foose/Chip Roth ford. Painted with testors pearl white, wheels from the 29 kit and a clear bed cover.
  10. tbill, for the weathering all I used was some Testors wood paint a brown and black permanent marker and paper towel with some thinner on it. It was almost like real wood how the darker colors would stay in the grain.
  11. Thanks you. I made the Pepsi machines by printing out pics of a machine from the 70's I found on the internet for sale that had nice front and side pics and glued them to sheet plastic. They don't have great detail but look good in the truck.
  12. I have been building showrods and 1/8 scale hot rods for a while but this year I wanted to build a truck and got hooked. Going to have to get some trailers soon. Thanks for looking.

    Big Red Deuce

    I used the front goodyears that came in the kit. I cut the opening larger where the wheel mounts out to the rib that is under the goodyear lettering. Then rap the tire around the wheel and cut off the excess and super glue together. When I put the tire on the car I made sure to have the cut part up in the fender. Hope this helps.

    Big Red Deuce

    Thanks. I was going to give some info in my first post but when I previewed I couldn't go back. It's been lowered a lot and had to make the front tires shorter so it would have a big n little tire combo. The back mags widened by using some extra wheel back halfs and fitting them to the front of the wheel. Had to trim the apron under the grill for ground clearance. Filled the hood so it has a 3 piece hood and filled the notches where the roof sits. The roof was made from the stock roof in the Big T. Paint is testors spray can red. Lowered the headlights by filling in the mounting hole on the fenders and trimming of a little of the ends of the headlight bar so it sits lower on the fenders. Again thanks.
