Thanks.

The Body paint is Candy-Violet and the flames are painted. Tires are 3D print and the Whitewall are painted.

I have this car chopped and channelled.

Looks great! Nice color combo!

That's only Candy-Violet over silver and Gold groundcoat.

It's amazing the difference that a different colored base coat makes to candies and metallics. I've got a bunch of pretty spoons lying around from past and present paint jobs for comparison sake.

It is easy to imagine this  one in real life Marcel.  The colours, the proportions and the detail are all perfect.  Combining the chop with the channel works so well.

Cheers

Yea, I guess I'm gonna be "that guy". 😟

It's a great build but it isn't a highboy. 

A highboy is a rod that the body sits completely on top of the frame, not channeled.

That is correct. I thought if it was built without fenders, it was a high boy. But it's not always a Rat Rod.

Then what do you call this version? Just Hot Rod?

Yes, you were correct with "channeled".  ,,just a "channeled hot rod" .

I'm sure a couple of the other guys on here could get more specific.

 

, , , and that takes nothing away from the great job you did building it.
