This is my spin on the Tom Daniel's Ice "T" show car. It's painted with Tamiya TS-10 French Blue & Duplicolor Perfect Match Universal White. I added plug wires to the engine. The bed is a mix of brown, beige & tan & I used BMF for the bed rails.
Who doesn't love late '60's/early '70's, totally off the wall, OTT show rods? Well... I'm kind of lukewarm about them myself, but there are some pretty cool ones out there. The designs of Ed Roth and Tom Daniel are among my favorites, and the Ice T... well, I can't say it's one of my faves.But as a chronic kitbasher, I can say it has some really cool parts that could make their way into other models. As you can see, in typical early Monogram fashion, there isn't too much to it. The big bonus is the parts are nicely molded, and the chrome looks good. The wheels resemble the ones found in the old Monogram Paddy Wagon kit, and you get a pair of those big, wrinkled, 'non -directional' , slicks. I'm also really fond of the twin, side mount, crescent-shaped fuel tanks, which mount just aft of the front tires. The bummer is you'll ruin the plating joining the two halves together and eliminating the seam on the fuel cap. And the kit has lots of other little doodads I find very tasty... the quick change rear diff, the ladder bars, the aformentioned slicks, and I'm really thinking of grafting that roof onto something! I've seen these built up, and they do look cool (oh, jeez...) if you like the style. Mine won't end up looking anything like the box art model, though.
