      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Yeeeyyyyy....Wiring time...

    Very nice! I will definitely follow this one up.

    Lowriders are not my cup o'tea, but I always appreciated the craftsmanship that goes into building one - both in scale and in real life too.

    Some engine details starting to take shape.

    Thank you Kerry.
     
    A small update on the rear suspension...
    This is the set up I want to go with. Of course there would be needed two more rods on top of the diff to triangulate the rear, which in its turn would necessitate an extra crossmember on the frame.

    Sweet!!!
    I love everything about it. It captures "Hot Rod" very well. The color totally makes it IMO.

    Now the million dollar question - When are these hitting the shelves?
    Looks like the Foose would be the first one out.

    Now that you mentioned it I see it. The interior color should be complimenting it very well.

    After quite the break from this project, let's revive the topic.......
     I started working on the interior, by first gluing the dash to interior tub and then basically gutting it out. 

     
    Next I made new side panels from thin sheet styrene and then cut them to represent the resized doors.

     
    This will give me pretty much a clean sheet to create whatever style side panels I like.

    I will be going for a very plain, clean, traditional yet modern look.
    Thanks for looking and stay tuned....

    I like that interior. What is going to be the body color?

    I really have hard time wrapping my head around some comments on this and other forums. No matter the subject matter, be it the vehicle represented, the scale or medium (diecast finished/plastic kit), to me personally, it would always make more sense to release something new, than to keep releasing something done many times before through the years. 
      I'm not going to discuss whether Foose has taste or if his creations are top quality. Until I have achieved what Chip has, I don't consider myself in the right to judge his work. But I can take a neutral look at the alternative betwen releasing (yet another) stock F-100 or the Foose one, while trying to put myself in Revell's shoes. Aside from buying the kit to build as shown on the box art, how many would buy the stock one, just for its engine vs. the Foose. How many kits will be sold just for the wheels in the Foose kit vs. people buying the stock one just for a set of wheels, etc., etc.. I think it is easilly understandable, why the Foose would be considered the more profitable option. Now add to that the popularity of the Foose brand  and the "new blood" this kit will attract and the choice becomes a no-brainer.

    That Foose truck...........
    I'm getting few for sure.

    All the holes and tabs at the rear of the body we filled

     
    The hoods had to be scratchbuilt from different pieces and scrap

     
    Things are starting to take shape

     
    Hopefully primer is coming soon.
    Thanks for looking and stay tuned....

    Some small details are starting to take shape...
    The side hoods supports were made from styrene strips that were drilled
     
     
    Then some extra support brackets were cut and drilled

     
    And some radiator supports were fashioned the same way.

    And back to the model....... 
      Next in line was the rear axle. First the brackets for the rear radius rods were drilled 
     
     
    The rear cover of the diff was fashioned from one of the biggest headlights from the '30 kit, after it was dechromed.
     
     
    I want something simple and clean, but definitely custom, so I added some thin round strips styrene. Later on everything will be filled and smoothed.
