I'm working on 2 VW beetles. Both are hover cars. They'll be completely different from each other. I stopped working on the first one because I'm really excited about this one. I cut the bug in half down the middle. Then sanded off more than 1/3. Making the turbines from scratch. All from styrene rod and some Ford Raptor rims. When it's complete, I don't believe you'll see the face of the Raptor rims. I only used them for the details that are usually covered by the tires. The backside of the rim. Some moveable rear thrusters for vertical take off and high speed turns. Covering up the old passenger door. I had visions of the Return of the Jedi Speeder bikes. I made the front wings for flight control from the 2 front seats.
32 Ford Jet Rod - Hover car This was fun. I loved working on this car. At some point I had to stop adding new gadgets and stop with the weathering, and just call it complete. This turned out so much better than I had originally planned. This car went through 4 different paint schemes over the past 6 months. Red and white was my original vision, but I was afraid that the red wouldn't show well with the rust. I was wrong, it turned out great. The front turbines have a slight up/down, side to side movement. The rear side thrusters can also be moved slightly. I borrowed a lot of parts from a lot of different kits. Most notable was the front chin spoiler from a 71 Hemi Cuda that I used for the front visor. The front turbines were from a A-10 Warthog 1/44 scale kit that I got for under $7! There's a flight computer under the hood, made from a Ford Raptor navigation system. I even looked through some of my sons Gundam models and found some cool canisters that look like they hold Nitrous. They're really difficult to see, but if you look thru the "driver's" window, they're down low where the driver's right hand would be. I love adding little details that you have to search for. Great kit! Was a blast to work on. Hope you like it!
