AMT Lil' Hot Dogger Show Rod

Recommended Posts

Here's an out of the box build of the Lil' Hot Dogger I just finished to participate in the show rod theme at the Spirit of Speed at the NHRA Museum in Pomona, California this past Sunday. I used Alclad silver base for the candy paint, but the red "candy" is Tamiya clear red acrylic and clear urethane on the frame and side boards. All chrome was stripped, except the front wheels, which were given a Tamiya Smoke wash. Flat red Testors enamel on the dog house and craft acrylics for the roof. Hope you enjoy looking at it. It was a blast to build!

I'm not much of a 'show rod' guy but this could very well change my mind. Very well executed Art. Nicely done.

 Very nicely done. Very clean. Was the cardboard display part of the kit.

Well done Art it looks fantastic and as I'm a decal watcher/printer and user, the rear tyre decals are superb!

Looks so nicely put together, a really "tight" build, which is an effect not often seen on show rod style models. I think it's at least partly due to the tone of the AllClad refinisihing, which along with the crisp and sanitary attention to detail, completely transforms the model. It gives it an unexpected realism, if one can say something like that about one of AMT's "Wilder" designs... Big Thumbz Upz! super.gifsuper.gif
