got a tweedy pie re-issue and just don't know how to leave well'nuff alone. this is a preliminary mock up to get a majority of the fabrication started, i plan on detailing everything along with final fit and finish before primer. to start, swapped out the chevy 283 and ford three speed (which looks like a one ton, cool!) for a good'ol chrysler 426 with stock B -body manifolds and a833 4 speed from a 68 roadrunner. cut out and made a new trans mount, and mocked up a kind of K frame for the hemi (note how you can still reach+change the oil filter and where the drainplug on the pan woukd be). modified the transmisstion tailshaft to afford space for a drive shaft and what should be a B-body dana 60 on custom coils and what i plan to be a paralell 4-link ( step up for hemi cars from an 8.75 was supposed to be dana 60, but in 1:25 it looks too small) then chopped the windshield, and modified the tweedy pie side steer to clear the scatter-shield, put chrysler brake master in frame and started on the single side exit exaust. need to make a steering centerlink, motor mounts, and decide what to do in the rear. then finish the floor pan, fire wall and....uh....everything else. brutally honest critisism welcomed. i know it looms ruff and the stringers bother mee too. good work is tidy work, but unfortunately im an 'artist'. i really just wanted feedback, and see the mock up of the stance. never been called anything on the internet i cant laugh at, thanks for looking.
Getting back into some hot rod modeling I am trying to find the best / most accurate parts to build a '50's to early '60's T bucket model in 1/25th scale. I have been out of the hobby for some time, but I have been digging through my stash and I realized I do have a wide selection of parts and kits to work from. In my stash: Revell Vintage Parts Pack T Bucket Chassis - complete Vintage Parts Pack '23 T Bucket body - complete Vintage parts Pack Speed Equipment - complete New Reissuse Roth's Tweedie Pie Butterra Chassis T Sedan and Phaeton - well detailed but too new for my current tastes for a chassis AMT Vintage Street Rod Series '23 T Full Fendered Roadster - complete Vintage Street Rod Series '25 Tall T Coupe - complete Various Double T kit parts and model - built-ups Parts Pack Drag T Chassis MPC Tognotti's T Show Rod - Started but no paint - some sub assemblies BlackJack T Street Rod Any suggestions? I want to do something like Tommy Ivo's T or the Kookie Car to early 50's in style and maybe a Rat Rod. I am impatiently waiting for my local shop to get in the double T kit and the '25T fruit wagon kits. Online dealers maybe cheaper but the shipping makes them more expensive IMO. What do you think of the suspension from the '29 A truck from Revell? Some pics of my sta-a-a-a-sh!
