A 1925 T-bird? The Thunderbucket!

Recommended Posts

One fine execution of a early 60's style show rod.  Very well developed concept and excellent build skills.  Having grown up in that era, this build reminds me of some of the renditions in Rod & Custom, Car Craft, etc.  Many thanks for sharing it.

Funky and fun! This captures the spirit of hot rod customs perfectly; it looks like a cover car for an old issue of "Rod and Custom" magazine!

Beautiful Manuel, and I really love that you didn’t use the wire axle on the front end. It looks much more realistic that way.This model is a wonderful reminder of a fun, fun era.

I love the idea (you had me at "Thunderbucket" :D ) and I love the finished product even more.

Looks alot like the style of the very early sixties (one of my favorite periods), great blend of brands and a great job.

Very imaginative and VERY cool! And, I might add, one of the cleanest builds I've ever seen of this kit. Well done and model on! B)

Pretty neat build, always a 60's t bird fan, My thought would have been a 'tilt wheel'
