Years ago I chopped a '37 cab (my first ever chop) and it didn't quite turn out right. Then I planned to use the cab to build a rat truck with an inline 6, but used that engine for another build. Every few months I get the cab out and mock it up with various engines and spare parts, but nothing ever came of it because I didn't have any frames that would work very well. I'd shortened the bed, but as the glue dried the panels warped. It went back in the box. A couple days ago, inspired by the trucks of Rudy Rodriguez and Ian Loska, among others, I decided to just make a frame, and go from there. So far, it's coming together fairly quickly. Some notes: -AMT '27 Touring front wheels and tires -Monogram classic rear tires on Monogram '30 ford wire wheels out back -Ford 9" from AMT 57 Corvette street machine -front axle from AMT '29 Ford roadster, modified with some bolt detail, scribed lines on the spindles, and plastic axle stubs -disc brakes from the junk pile. Calloway corvette, maybe? -resin Buick Nailhead from The Parts Box in Australia. -AMT '34 Ford grille The plan is for a fairly extreme neo-traditional rod. At this point I'm undecided if it will get shiny paint or patina, or a combination of both.
Hi this is a my build thread of my WIP 1:24 scale bobber. I started with a 2002 Harley sportster replica, pulled it apart and stared building a custom frame, Im using the same technique I've used in customizing 1:1 scale bobbers just this is trickier because i have to plasti-weld this frame not Tig it LOL, so far i feel like im off to a good start im looking forward to posting more pixs soon but heres what Ive got
