Scale I Build

  1. this is a resin body kit from ebay. used chassis from 53 ford under it. finished 4/2/20211
  2. picked up a matrange resin body because i needed to make a grille from it for last merc build. was trying to decide if i wanted to make it into a sedan or a coupe. coupe roof is very different than ford but not as attractive. so matranga resin body mated with a 39 ford sedan body. made front fenders longer because merc was visible wider than ford. altered front of rear fender little, and reshaped back window little. want to take the skirts off and put a well like real pic. thanx
  3. always liked the look of a nice low 51 studebaker 3 window. so here goes, looked at a 36 ford roof but used piece of roof cut off a 39 chevy to make a convertible years ago, liked the roundness of the back corners best. but the back needed to curve out more so added a piece of plastic to reshape. cut off back of old roof, filled it in, split my new roof because its to wide, mated to existing. after in place and cleaned up, cut shape for new back window. this was a last night project. sometimes you have to go at it when it hits ya. thanx
  4. added a 58 chevy panel wagon rear section onto a 58 slammer body. just set it on a 66 street nova chassis for a look
  5. took awhile to get back into it, but after month and 1/2 im bit again. resin 36 humpback body, cut bottom off and put bottom off 36 amt coupe kit for nice fit. interior made from 37 sedan kit. chassis was from a built kit i picked up. thanx finished 2/8/2021
  6. idea: seen truck at grand nationals 2020 something like this. 23 ford delivery van, 25 chassis parts, ala kart rear, parts box built motor
  7. one evenings crazy idea came to life. thanx guys for some ideas as i was building. i build 1960 and older collection. had this lambo rear engine i was trying to build into the colection. kinda out there, lot of cutting and real challenge to get it all smooth and molded into some flow. thanx for looking, finished build sept 9, 2020
  8. 57 chrysler was a custom version complete bag kit, i hand made the bed. never was a fan of headlights on this car so i changed them out with 58 chevy. painted it french blue first but felt it needed a little more zing, went with star spangled blue and gun metal. thanx for lookin finished build 9/11/2020
  9. 57 chrysler kit, cut roof and deck lid to make a comino hauler. never liked the headlights on this car so i changed them to 58 chevy headlights. inner bed could maybe be from a mid 60s comino kit but mine was a bit nasty so might try making my own.
  10. Thought id introduce you to a bit of a long term build, my 64 Impala ! So there was a catorgory at Lowrider shows for Radical builds, its all a bit more subtle now, but i used to love those cars, so I thought id build one ! So whats going on ? I never did like standard, so heres the ideas... So far ! the whole back half of the car will tilt up on hydraulics split front bonnet / wings joined, and tilting upwards split rear boot/rear panel joined,, probably opening up the same as the front ! opened rear section by the bottom of the rear window chassis needs boxing ! will have suicide doors, scratchbuilt fur/mirrored interior, and a detailed chassis with complete hydraulic install... maybe a new front and rear end style, roof chopped and a split targa roof, tilting up ! Can only do a bit at a time, theres nothing left to glue together otherwise.. ! The floorpan is an old one i'd already added a smooth firewall too, and later broke ! So this is repaired and going in the mix, with smooth floors underneath ! Hopefully i can get this back to being one piece again, wish me luck eh ! !
  11. more filling and fileing, put molding details all around, frame, need to figure out axles, cowl is now attached along with rear fenders and front fenders.
  12. ive had theses pics for awhile. finally started drawing and cuttin.
  13. 58 chevy panel wagon resin i picked up. wanted to cast the roof. also was going to build it, found a pic of a wagon i really liked, so decided to go that route. used revell impala, because i had one. it has a trunk area so it worked for back of wagon. the back seat in impale is different so i cast the back of front seat to use. theres a speaker piece so i used it behind back seat. was going to do blower, but liked the clean hood look. thanx
  14. so theres a speaker deck in the kit, not on plan, used it behind the back seat facing back. just getting some base colors on. used kit motor short block with exhaust but put a blower on it. still deciding on it, cuz cutting hole in hood. 34 is getting main coated and sitting on own axles. took your advice and found some volvo tractor wheels from a bag kit i picked up for parts. thanx
  15. so this got started june 19, but this weekend the 26th i messed with the bus. the wagon was a panel wagon that i cut the panels out of. didnt have a amt 58 so i checked out the revell version i had. looked like its close on lining up and it has a trunk detail that might help. the back seat for impala is cool but wrong, so i casted the top of the front seat to use for back. then i got side tracked for a bit

  17. this was a built kit molded in black and painted lime when i got it. after a purple bath, the paint didnt really come off. any body that knows of me, i like different. had a pic i came across for some insparation. chopped it, moved the rearend back so more of the back door was there for getting in back seat. used cut off pieces from opposite sides to reconstruct woody framing and cast a small piece of curve to finish the curve. first thought fenderless but back wells were so huge, tire gets lost, fenders big too, but not as big. was going to go black walls but tried some white walls and had my interest, then, the modelhause big n littles white walls and i smiled. thanx, enjoy built 6/20/20

  19. this started as a 47 merc pickup cab that i wanted to convert to a ford. i told the guy of this project, in the box extra was this ford cab also. but it had a narrow hood area. cut the two in half and cut hood from body once i got everything lined up. 50 ford bed and runningboards, chassis and interior, rear fenders are 40 ford, 40 ford car dash , prostock motor from parts bin.
  20. i picked this resin 51 nash panel wagon up on ebay back in 8/16. it was basic moreless a body kit with a 1 piece solid chassie to hold axles and tires and wheels. was always thinking a street rod, but this thing just begged for the nasty treatment. the vet kit allowed me to keep the hood solid and still get nasty under the hood. whole chassis and interior panels were from a corvette pro street kit #7157 . thanx built 6/1/20
  21. amt 33 willys coupe kit, 32 ford phantom vickie. vickie: the chassis is complete, floor, seat, dash, door panels were shortened little and trimed for back of coupe roof. the willys motor pins lined right up. just shorten. built 5/19/2020
  22. i like different. when i got a 47 mercury pickup resin cab my first thought could i make a ford with it. i already built the merc pickup, so i dicided to get another to try it. i think i had mentioned what i was thinking of doing to the guy. i got about 6 bodies from this guy this time, in the box was this extra cab. im thinking maybe it was a tractor cab being so narrow, dont know, but heres what i did, heres were im at. cut the 2 in half and swapped fronts. the 47 had the 40 rear fenders but i really thought about using the 50 fenders.
  23. amt 40 ford sedan deli, been chopped and channeled
  24. a resin i just got on 4/6/20 from ebay, stevswai-0 and was cutting 2 daz later. ole pic for insparation, made it a 2 door, then cut the hood off. it has a amt 64 impala interior, and monogram davey allison nascar complete chassis under it. painted brilliant orange, finished 4/28/2020. thanx for lookin
  25. started back in feb with the woody, which had me looking for parts in other 53s. ended up building all 4.
