  1. Drop Tank 'Liner

    This is extremely cool to see especially with it being Speedweek at Bonneville right now. Just read that Danny Thompson set a speed record with his father's rebuilt Challenger!!
  2. "The Stig Collection" -Lotus Super 7

    Excellent. Great looking machine and those seats look so comfortable!!
  3. AMT 32 Ford Tudor

    Goes to show the old AMT kit can be built as a very good looking Deuce Tudor. Really like the side to side wheel/tire treatment.
  4. 1953 Ford Crestline Victoria.

    Excellent as alaways
  5. Hasegawa Mini Cooper 'S' Countryman All 4 WRX

    This is one awesome looking Mini. Great job on the conversion and graphics.
  6. Thanks guys. It was a fun build of something that would be nice to have in full scale. I am really liking how my closed cab version is turning out and hope to have completed by the end of the month.
  7. Ford 1953

    Well done . Got a build me one of these someday. They are a very nice model.
  8. 32 ford woody

    Nice Deuce Woody. Did not realise there was a resin body available. I built one recently by converting from a 30 Woody and was more work than I figured.
  9. This so cool and looks so real in your photos. I have wanted to try this myself for a long time and have the kits to do it. Your version exceeds my expectations.
  10. Nice patina. Looks like an authentic barn find.

  13. 1961 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport (Lindberg)

    Super well done bubble top
  14. Thanks Denis - I am glad you like it as it was you who put me on the correct path when I started construction. I am now working on a '32 Cab pickup conversion from a '34 and it certainly is not as straight forward as I originally thought.
  15. There were 593 Roadster [Open Cab] Pickups produced in 1932. A ‘soft-top” roof was available and although it could not be folded, it was removable. Grill bars for commercial vehicles were stamped as part of the shell and painted black but passenger car shells and grills were available as an option. Also painted black on commercial vehicles were the headlight buckets and bars. Windshield frames were painted body colour. If spare tire was ordered it had to be a side mount. Fuel tank was under the seats. Most pickups were equipped with four cylinder engines. Ford used up left over Model A door hardware on commercial vehicles. I started with a Lindberg/AMT ’34 Ford Pickup. The roof was cut off and the chassis and running boards shortened a scale 6 inches. The cowl and windshield are from a Revell ’32 Roadster as are the hood and grill shell. The side contours on the body were done with Evergreen half round. The model was build basically stock but mildly hot-rodded with a souped up flathead and lowered stance. The side mount that came with the kit was a styrene tire, which I smoothed to give a tire cover look. The twin taillights are 32 passenger car style. The main body paint is Tamiya Blue with Testor’s Black enamel fenders and Tamiya French Blue wheels.
