  1. Here are pics from this past weekends IPMS contest in Jacksonville. This group puts on a great show every year that just keeps getting bigger each time. https://public.fotki.com/1320wayne/model_shows/2020-shows/jaxcon-2020/
  2. More progress on this build. The body is primed in white and I fabbed up a seat and added the Racepak electronics to the dash.
  3. Here is another 2020 completed build. I placed this here because even though it's listed as a Peterbilt the build is more of a street rod/truck than a big rig. This build started life as a Jimmy Flintstone resin body and interior and morphed into what you see here by utilizing a lot of scratchbuilding and kitbashing. I used more different materials on this from brass, resin, styrene sheet, old necklaces for chain, Bic pens for exhaust stacks and a little bit of 3D printed parts.
  4. Engine, with a bit of wiring, firewall and radiator painted, detailed and installed.
  5. Making more progress. Added a spare tire, the rear driveshaft is installed, support chains hanging off the sides of the bed, winch and the load secured.
  6. Thanks Jim. I know it's not "shiny" like you like but at least the rig it will sit on is shiny. Oh, and even the door decal is from the parts box. An old AMT 3 in 1 decal sheet from the 60's.
  7. Here is another completed 2020 build. Or at least part of a 2020 build. This is a parts box rat rod Ford built solely from the parts box. It was a fun build using just a mess of assorted parts to create a subject that will eventually be the load on the back of a rollback build that is also ongoing. I'm not sure which kit the body and chassis came from. I'm thinking possibly a Lindberg kit but I don't know. The tires and wheels came from a 1/28 scale 36 Dodge diecast bank pickup. The engine is from the parts box and the seat cover is a felt Mexican blanket from a sheet of assorted blankets. The shifter is a resin piece from Bandit resins. The weathering was done with a Realistic Finishes kit from Michaels.
  8. Awesome build. Love the paint scheme.
  9. Thanks. I actually have a sheet of felt Mexican blankets. I don't remember where I got them but they work great.
  10. I'm sure that you are referring to a resin caster using the Moebius body to convert it to a sedan and then cast it but there have been plenty of other resin bodied sedans available over the years and I would imagine that it wouldn't take much massaging to make them work on this kit. I have a case coming just for such matters as I have had bodies ready to go for a while now and this kit will speed up the building process from having to use resin chassis and kitbashed suspensions. Here's a few examples of what I have waiting in the wings.
  11. Sox and Martin ran both an auto and a manual trans.
  12. Nearing completion. Radiator attached, engine wiring, shifter, seat blanket and glass. I still have to finish the front suspension, rear shocks and fuel filler neck.
  13. I like Pattos. My first experience was a learning one. My first attempt was a full wrap build that went horribly wrong and had to start over. I learned a lot about using these decals from that. The quality is very good and they go on great. The layout is best worked when you break the decals down into smaller components for application. The reccomendation is to only use Future as a clear coat. I experimented with 2-part clear and it works great as well. Testors, Dupli-color and other clears like that; not so much. They will make the decals wrinkle substantially. If you decide on a scheme that has background color and you can paint it instead then simply order the decal without the background color and it makes it easier to apply. Here are others that I have done with Pattos. Jimmie Johnson Superman scheme. Full wrap and this is the one that I had to order a second set and start over. Harvick Busch scheme. Ordered the decal without the orange background. Kasey Kahne Pitch Black Mtn. Dew. Ordered the decal without the black background.
