I just picked up one of the 1/16 Revell 34 Ford Street Rod kits (quite hard to find lately), and really want to build it in the billet rod fashion of the 80's/90's (the kit is a good start already). I'm going to build it mostly box stock, with the exception of different wheels, changing it to a manual, and changing the intake to a Camaro TPI intake (feels more indicative of that time period versus the intake offered in the kit). I'm sure there will be some other changes here and there as I go along. Speaking of wheels, here are the ones I've designed to fit the kit tires. They are meant to resemble Boyds Sport 6 wheels, and are a staggered 14"/15" combo. I've also chosen the main color, a very 90s teal courtesy of the Geo Tracker. I am going to complement it with some yellow and magenta as well.
I'm interested in building one of these, but from some of the pictures of the kit look like the roof is molded onto the body. If anyone has the kit or has built one, how hard is it to paint the interior a different color from the body? It looks like it might be difficult to mask and spray. Thanks for any input.
Hey guys, I built this one about 20 years ago. Sort of a kit bash with a late '80 vibe. Wheel change and I dropped in a Chevy 350. No room for headers. I picked up a little schmutz in storage. I think it's a little ink form the newspaper she was wrapped in. I tried to rub it out but nothing happened. Thanks for looking
Hey all, so glad to be back here on the forums. Man, I missed them. It isn't much yet, here's my work in progress: A '32 Ford Roadster from an older, sealed 1980's AMT kit I bought for $10 at the Mid-Atlantic NNL in May. I've ditched the fenders and running boards and will channel the body over the rails. I'm going to try to use the kit wire spoke wheels if I can clean them up really well. I ditched the kit tires as well and they've been replaced with the thin stripe Firestones from the AMT Custom & Competition tire set. As you can see, this worked perfectly because the kit's wire spoke wheels would have covered up a good portion of the wide whitewalls. The front tires should be a little smaller than the rear, but they look pretty nice and I can live with it. To get the front end as low as I want it, I used a dropped front axle from the parts box, no doubt from an older AMT 2in1 kit. I would buy 1/25 dropped front axles by the dozen if I could, by the way. On a side note, I highly suggest getting a subscription to some of the car magazines out there. They're super cheap via subscription and give me a lot of inspiration.
