    I love it! When will it be in "theaters everywhere"?

    Bulletnose speedboat (and trailer): The Hydro-Hawk
    What we've got here is the love child of AMT's old customizing boat kit and a Jimmy Flintstone 1951 Studebaker with a little inspiration from industrial designer Richard Arbib's work. Hope you enjoy.

    Wow! That's a real beauty. Your builds are always outstanding but this is a real eye catcher.

    This thread seems to keep coming back to life! Thanks to everyone for all the great comments. Here are a few more photos from the construction phase.

    This is fascinating. Your detail work is excellent!

    I love the way you think! Very creative and fun to look at.

    IIRC, the velocity stacks came from the 'three carb setup for the Lincoln engine in the '25 T kit. They are definitely a standard item from some AMT kit that I had handy.
    Thanks for all the comments and compliments, everybody!

    The Tomkat - '25T with a boat tail
    This is based on the venerable AMT 1925 Model T chopped top coupe. The boat tail was created from a spare 1936 Ford hood and the chassis has been stretched to make room for the straight 8 from MPC's 1932 Chrysler.

    Cajun Model Fest 31 has been cancelled
    The flooding in Baton Rouge, LA and surrounding areas has forced us (Baton Rouge Scale Modelers) to cancel Cajun Model Fest 31 that was scheduled for Sept. 3. There was just no other option! We hope to have a new date soon but as of right now we don't know when that will be. No club members were injured and everyone still has their homes but nothing is normal in Baton Rouge right now.

    Very cool look! It kinda reminds me of the Chaparral 2D.

    Truly excellent work and a very unusual subject. I was an admirer of the styling of these cars back in the day but when you see one in person it is hard to believe just how large they were! Big and beautiful.
  12. mr moto added a post in a topic 2057 AstraHAWK - Jupiter export version   

    Thanks, everybody! I'm glad you're enjoying it but the fact is that I was trumped on all counts by the vehicle that inspired this build. Check out the Studebaker Astral:
    Here's the secret recipe that I used (please erase your computer memory after viewing this or else the Men in Black will have to do it for you.)

    That's the Monogram Mythos kit, R&R Resin 1957 De Soto, Revell "Experimental Turbine" kit and assorted sporks. None of the above, except the sporks, are anything to brag about and are best used for unintended purposes. It went together about like it looks. The engine was assembled with a lot of improvisation and a few bits and pieces from the Mythos' Ferrari mill. The instrument pod is one of those TV's from the old Johan kits. Steering wheel is 1960 Dodge. Here are few random photos from the build to illustrate.

    Again, thanks to everybody for the kind comments. I'm glad you all like it because I sure had fun!

    2057 AstraHAWK - Jupiter export version

    The new AstraHAWK for 2057 is the kind of car the whole galaxy has been waiting for. Its sleek modern style will reflect your obvious good taste in any solar system you visit.

    The all new AstraTHRUST reactor/turbine hybrid power unit allows effortless acceleration to near-light speeds using clean, safe thermonuclear energy.

    With the new AstraFlite reactor control system you can select any desired power level with fingertip ease while relaxing in AstraHawk's tastefully appointed interior.

    Come in for a test drive today and we know you'll agree that there has never been a car like the new AstraHAWK for 2057.

    Very impressive! That was obviously a challenging decal project and you did a great job.

    This is a great project. I actually saw some of the new Pan Am in 2013 and it was a great experience. I'll be looking forward to your finished model.
