MODELERS! I BESEECH THEE- back to modeling, help me decide!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to actually plan out what I'm going to do ( drawing plans if I need to ), and BUILD AGAIN for the first time in years.

So HELP!
I build drag cars:
AMT original 40 Ford coupe, ala 1960-62, with Revell Pontian from the M/T Challenger, including chain drive, hydro from the parts pack, quick change rear, cleaned up chassis, semi gutted interior. As a gas class / altered coupe of the period.

OR

The AMT/Lindberg 34 Ford Pickup as an altered, small block with Hillborns, center steer, MAYBE chopped, stock frame but drilled, new crossmembers, Hydro, Old rear.

Alternate engine for either, Revell Buick nailhead from Nancy kits, blown with the chain drive.

HELP ME DECIDE! POST YOUR EXAMPLES! Move this IF you must!

I cant decide.

Why don't you build both , and post a few Work in progress picture's as you start.

Then I will be able to "Invision" what you  have in mind .....  Of course by then .... you won't need my advice. L O L

( I'm leaning  to the 34 pick-up. )

Exactly! Who has only one model going at at time? With a little luck, I'll finish up two in the next week or so, move two more up on the bench, and slot two more into the rotation! B):lol:

Now that's a REAL model builder! In order to be worth your salt, you gotta have multiple kits going at the same time. One kit means you're not creative enough! LOL

Show us pics, they both sound interesting.

Much better idea to do one at a time ,this way you stay focused and organized on 1 project, its never failed me!

Gary start with the 40 Ford until you get stumped then go to the 34. I say build the 34 with an Olds or a caddy like they did back in the day.

Still deciding, thanks for the input.Trouble is, I have almost no room for multiple projects.
