1931 Model A Hiboy

Recommended Posts

This one has a resin body of unknown origin ( Flintstone ? ) on top of a Z'd Revell 32 frame. It's chopped, channeled, and has a drilled visor added.The louvered trunk is from the 32 5 window.The doors are hinged, the dash is 48 Ford. I also added side steer with hanging pedals. The motor is a Parts Pack Caddy. Rear end is a quick change. Paint is Tamiya Black . The rear and Caddy valve covers are from Replica and Miniatures of maryland. Thanks for looking.

The stance is great...at first i thought it was channelled a lot more, but obviously the body sits (close to) on the rails like a proper "highboy"...but for some reason, yours looks a lot lower than your typical traditional Highboy! Amazing, stance and paint.

Very nice! Don't see too many Caddy engines, at first I thought it was the one from AMT '49 Ford. Nice job on painting the script. Love the overall look of the hot rod.

Beautiful! Love the caddy power. I've got one of those parts pack engines for a '29 build.
