Monogram Ice T.

Recommended Posts

A lockdown special. I don't have spraying facilities as I packed it all away as soon as we sold our house, but Covid-19 has put the actual move on hold. So built this box stock and looked up 'how to paint ice cubes' on various sites and received multiple tips. Use clear blue acrylic and clear acrylic about 50% of each, so tested it.

Oh and the retractable headlights work as well!

I shall buy another of these kits after moving and spray it up in multiple colours!

Looks great Pat, fun kit I have done at least 4 of the Ice T over the years.  Where are you moving to?

Thanks guys. Yes very cool, especially whilst carrying ICE!

Yes a very nice kit to build, we don't see enough of the kits similar to this in the UK, like the weird and wonderful, like ones that were released more in the 1960'sand 70's, Tom Daniels, Weird Oh's, etc.

We are moving within the same town Dan. We have a 4 bedroom split level detached house and as there are only two of us now, due to our two son's leaving home, (one in Calgary!). We thought why not buy what we Brits call a 'future proof' two bedroom bungalow, just a single floor, so if either of us become infirm or otherwise called dodgy on our legs,(or in a wheelchair) we can still get around.

I know we are still young and active at 72 years young, but you never know whats round the corner!

I love the Ice Cubes. Were they in the kit ?  We're with you on the down size move on your home. The housing market is in the "Pull Chain Facility" now so we're going to have to wait on any moves at this time.

Thanks espo. Yes the ice cubes and tongs to lift them are in the kit. The hope to move is stronger still but with Covid-19 hanging about, we lost in the UK yesterday 674 people, the lockdown, although people want to get to work is a long time away I think!

This is a very bad thing what ever it is. The worst part seems to be the lack of a proven way to treat it. Al I can say is ware your mask and stay safe my friend .

Yes espo it's a virulent virus, that knows no boundaries. South Korea has been the best organised as it had a SARS outbreak some years ago and found a vaccine and stopped that early. It has done the same with Covid-19. We only go out early in the morning to buy essential vegetables so see very few people, possibly 6-8 and use that time to exercise as well, we are allowed just one hour per day outside our house environment.

 We don't wear masks as they are only one use and are also expensive to buy. We always keep social distancing rules.  You stay safe as well.

Nicely done.  Gotta love the show rods.  The "ice cubes" in the back really make it "pop".
