Here's a 41 Willy's that was found in a barn and needed alot of work to get road ready. Barf Breath removed it from the frame and did his magic on it. It has a 56 Chevy rear end and a Willy's 4 banger to get it moving. Of course he did a tad bit of work on the engine also. He installed a lowered front axle for a 40 Ford coupe that he had laying around in the garage. He also found a front bumper from a 40 Ford truck and a different left door and started driving it for the rest of the summer.
Ok. Here is a 53 Ford custom that I did as one that's in progress and the guy wants to drive it a little cause he has no money to finish it yet. It has 56 Packard tail lights, custom parts up front from the 57 Chevy (AMT). The skirts came from the parts box and there is a Camaro sub frame up front also with a 350 for go power. Chopped top and it still needs a little work on the left rear fender where you can see a little bondo on top. Wire wheels are from the convertible kit along with the dual exhaust.
I made my own by using an old bottle top from a testors jar and a piece of aluminum tube and super glued that to the lid. I then drilled a small hole on the top for a vent hole. I also bent the tube on an angle so it would fit into the air brush. I use this all the time when I need to spray Alclad. I also put in a small beebee to keep the paint mixed when I shake the bottle. Works great for me. Dan

We build or just talk about models. Most of the Buckeye Scale Auto Club's members meet there every Friday and we have a great time. Your also welcome to join our club ifin ya like. Dan
Revell's 66 GEE-TO super stock car. There are no drag parts in the kit at all. Not even headers. They show the car doing a burn out on the box and no slicks in the kit either. Not good when you're trying to build replicas of super stock cars and no parts to build them. Dan
Thanks Bill. I got er done tonight. Last night I painted the hood and tonight I painted the bottom of the hood and then I installed it all. I am really pleased with how this turned out. Here are some pics of the finished car. Hope ya like it.
This was fun to build and I'm looking forward to building the 68 GTO Tin Indian when the model gets here. It is the Revell 1/24th kit and I wish that it was the MPC 1/25th kit, but I have to work with what I can get. So, stay tuned for the 68 GTO.
