  1. Rock n Roll Willys, a blast from the past, there's root beer all over the track. Spot on with this build.
  2. Thanks guys, really appreciated.
  3. Haven't been on here for a long while, what with life getting in the way. Moving house, building models and props for Pinewood Studios etc. But managed to get this built, a 39 Chevy Wagon. Did a few mods and scratchbuilt parts for this, and the wheels are from Mr Steve Zimmerman with my own turned rims for the back of the wheels. I used real wood for the floor, chemiwood for the air filter, door cards and interior panels. Paint is flip flop over a black base.

  4. Thanks for the kind comments everyone, I very much appreciate them. Chemiwood is also known as Renshape and it's great stuff to model with.
  5. This was my last project, a 41 Chevy rat truck. The chassis is one I have had around 30 years, and I think it's from an old MPC Datsun pick-up, but not sure. The grill is resin and modified. The pick-up bed is scratch built from real wood. The wheels are old Herb Deeks pewter wheels. The air bags were made from carved chemiwood, turned aluminium and heat shrink tubing. I used the salt technique for the weathering.

  6. Ok Tim, stop showing us pics of the real engine, come out of your garage and leave your full sized car alone. :-) Joking aside, this is some serious detailing my friend, and your machining skills are top notch. This is with out doubt the best 1/25th scale engine I have ever seen. Without knowing the scale, this would pass for a much larger scale engine. Superb. Steve
  7. @Codi inspiring stuff as always, love the work on the rear end. @MitchP I put the CF decal on the hat in two halves, and used decal softener on it, so it could conform to the shape. I let the first half dry, then repeated the process, when dry, I trimmed it, then cleared it. Steve
  8. I used cellulose clear straight out of the can over Scale Motor Sports CF decals on this resin injector hat. I did the same on the panels and these were on my 1/16th scale Soul Reaper Pro-Mod Camaro and I had no problems.
  9. I'm not going to repeat what has already been said, or maybe I will, as this is a superb build. Excuse me while I lift my jaw off the floor and put my eyes back in. Looking forward to the next instalment and glad to see you are back on it after your surgery. Steve
  10. Hi Tim. I am in total awe of this build, this is top notch stuff, and given me lots of ideas of machining parts. Good luck with your hand surgery, I know how that feels, had surgery twice on my right hand/wrist, and still not right. Look forward to the next instalment of this superb build, after your have recovered of course. Steve
  11. The Fiat is done. 20150331_173619 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_173831 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174032 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174013 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174047 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174131 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174156 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174359 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174346 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150331_174433 by doomcrew, on Flickr
  12. Well I don't think the insurance would cover accidental alien collisions, so the owner would have to sell.
  13. This is where I am with the Topo. Just getting the prepped for paint, and I was toying with the idea of a rear wing, but as of yet, I am undecided. I scratch built the fuel pump, fuel block and fuel tank. The tank was made from chemiwood, with sheet pewter strapping, and a turned cap. I also turned two of the blower pulleys, before my lathe choose to stop working again, it is very hit and miss at the moment, and still can't work out why. I scratch built the ally side panels and part of the steering along with the brackets for the front axle. Plenty still to do. 20150225_132215 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150225_132231 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150225_132253 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150225_132303 by doomcrew, on Flickr 20150225_132318 by doomcrew, on Flickr
  14. Really nice looking 40 and love the paint, great colour. Hope to see it for real soon. Steve
