I have seen a video somewhere on Youtube that gave me inspiration for building this. I was going to use a scrapped 1/24, but decided to go bigger and doubting on 1/16, I chose 1/12 in the end. I had a partial built '57 sportscoupe laying around and other than just parting it out, I had nowhere to go with that kit. An ideal start. The idea is to make a kind of Rat Rod, but different. Where I personally think that unibody's don't lend themselves for RatRodding, I am trying to prove myself wrong, although I will not leave the body intact. I hope the pictures will make it more clear. I started with cutting of the sides of the frame Then I cut the body in somewhat uneven parts (to give it a Barn Rod look) I also gave it somewhat a tapered look, so smaller in the front. And some much needed reinforcements
Here it is, Finished, finally. This was originally built by my friend, and it was supposed to be Salt Flat racer. BUT it turned to a Rat Rod, and it was looking like this: Then I got it, and idea was that I would not sand the body, only thing, I did was removing old glue from it. Then I built that little bed from styrene. There's nothing special with it, built just for fun, on a side of more serious projects. Frame is scratchbuilt, propeller shaft is shortened from Monkees Mobile's part, engine is from the parts box, grille is from '32 Ford and it's sectioned. Well, enough talk, here are the picture, and WIP topic can be found here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=44400&hl=
