Hard_2_Handle_454 posted a topic in Model CarsGot this for Christmas and finally got to build it. It's a very nice kit and builds a lot easier than I thought it would. I'd kinda like to get another one. SAM_0627 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0628 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0629 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0630 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
AMT Mod Rod '29 Ford Roadster
gwolf posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsHey all, The ideas have been in my head for a while, so I was glad when I finally made some time last night to get started on a few projects. The first project is the '29 Ford Roadster I'm building for the Mid-Atlantic NNL theme, The Race of Gentlemen. I'll be building it from the AMT Mod Rod / Model A '29 Ford kit. As I've been learning more about Model A's and looking through photos of them online I came across a variation I had not seen before, where the fenders and running board are removed, but the skirt (not sure of the actual name) is left intact as in the photo below. I marked out the areas that would need to be removed with a sharpie and began cutting. The plastic on the newer, Chinese made kits is thinner than the older, USA made kits in my opinion, and was pretty easy to cut through. I used an Exacto blade and scored the straight lines and the curve behind the front fenders. I used nippers to cut out sections so that when I pulled them apart from the main fender assembly it didn't tear off larger areas than I wanted. Based on the photo of the 1:1 '29 Ford, I made sure to cut out the flat vertical areas behind the rear fenders as well. A little trimming and sanding made a big difference and balanced out the appearance on both sides (not shown). I'll trim out the fork area and radiator mount next. I'm happy with the progress I made and it's a good start to this project.
29 Mercedes SSK
Hard_2_Handle_454 posted a topic in Model CarsBought this a few months ago at Ollie's for $6. Despite it having rained every day for the past month I finally got around to building it now; the first week it hasn't rained. The kit itself isn't too bad for a Lindberg. My problem was the directions, which are photos of the model being built in black and white (painted) with descriptions of where to put the pieces. Kinda hard to tell where things go. I was also sad that there were no decals, even though the box shows decals. Still, it came out looking nice.

'29 Ford Dry Lakes/TROG roadster
Spex84 posted a topic in Model CarsJust completed this one recently (it may get some light weathering in future, though. We'll see...). This is a project that was started in 2013, sat in the box for years, and then sat partially assembled for over a year before I decided to make a few changes and finish it up. Some notes: -AMT 29 roadster, AMT '34 Ford flathead with aluminum intake stacks and scratchbuilt wire looms. Headers modified from Revell '32 Tudor kit, AMT '34 Ford wire wheels on Johan Mercedes 500k tires out back, and Revell '31 Woody wire wheels/tires in front. Firewall was modified with extra flanges to look more like the 1:1, and it has a flattened front crossmember and AMT '34 Ford coupe front axle to get the front end down. Cut-down steering wheel, '31 Woody door handles, and the windshield frame was chopped and removed from the stanchions then attached to the chopped-down roadster roof--so they can be removed as a unit for that stripped-down racer appearance. The headlights and taillight/license plate are held on with wire clips and are also removeable. Thanks for looking!
Slotto posted a topic in Model CarsThe Monogram '29 Ford Pickup. Built over 20 years ago. Pretty much box stock. Not really sure of the color. Thanks for looking
Revell '29 Ford Roadster "Long Gone Daddy-O"
Starliner Kustoms posted a topic in Model CarsFound this kit to be real fun to build. I made a few changes to bring out the 50's feel such as, the spinner caps mounted on wide whitewall tires and a duece grill. I also added some parts box taillights and wired the motor..
Hard_2_Handle_454 posted a topic in Model CarsThis car was a pain to build, and it took me a lot more time than it normally does to build, but it came out great. This is a pretty good kit to build, just a little challenging. Love the way the car looks.
I just got the 1930 Ford Coupe in an auction and I want to do a channeled, but un-chopped coupe build. I was thinking of buying the new tool 29 roadster and using the wheels, tires, chassis, etc. Is there anything specific that I should know, like if these kits are incompatible, etc? I have always wanted to do a low channeled rod that is un-chopped. I'm 6'3" and in real life a chopped and channeled rod wouldn't cut it, I'd need some head room, and I have always had a thing for tall cabs. Also, I don't know what kind of engine I want to do. I will consider the nail head, but not sure if I want to do a low hp cruiser, like a Flathead, or another monster motor. something like this
I used my 40% off coupon at two locations in the north Phoenix area, got one at each location. I haven't seen them at Michaels yet or I would have gotten them for 50% off.
Yet another '29 Roadster...
chadrob30 posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsBuilt this one basically box stock with the exception of the '34 grille and windshield frame. Just have to let the rust do it's thing for a bit longer and install the finishing touches...
