Thought I should post something regarding the '30 coupe 3D model I have been working on. Back in 2010-11 I modeled a '30 as a modification ("mod") for the video game Grand Theft Auto IV. It was a lot of fun, but after a while I realized the model was sitting around on my hard drive, effectively abandoned. I dragged it back out to try and convert it for 3D printing, after noticing that apparently the large-scale market lacks a '30 coupe option. During that process I discovered lots of things that needed tweaking. My skills are limited, but I've done my best to get 'er fixed up. The body is currently up on Shapeways in 1/8 and 1/16. My pockets aren't deep enough to order one myself, but maybe someone else will take the plunge. Comments and feedback are welcome
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
