1/16 34 Ford

Recommended Posts

I guess this is more a fuel coupe than a street hot rod . It's a long term " forgotten " project . Monogram 1/16 scale 34 Ford starting point with the California Charger 392 motor . All of the tiers are black nylon and I made the 12 spokes ,  back rims . Kind of stuffed a FC cage in the interior . Someday Someday .

Thanks guys , I have way to many stalled projects . Mostly because my strength is wheels  and tires and other details just seem to stop me . But that's the beauty of this site , it raises the bar and inspires us .

Very cool, I have one of these started a few years ago.  I will be watching and might dig mine out to get it going again

Excellent machining on those front wheels! Looks like you machined them in halves?

Yes Mike I do all of my 12 spokes in that fashion . I first make round blanks with a 4 or 5 degree angle and spoke thickness . Then I've programmed the Bridgeport to cut the six windows . I have got the three scales "1/25 , 1/16 and 1/8" figured out now .

Thanks again for looking in Jeff .
