2 for 20

Recommended Posts

The only two that I finished this year.  The 29 Model A Roadster Pickup features an all brass scratch built frame, and suspensions as well as windshield frame, gas tank, bed supports, and bomber seat frames, with wooden trunk and floors.  Engine is a Chrysler 354 Hemi out of the Moebius 56 Chrysler 300B.  Wire wheels are also scratch build using copper wire, and turned aluminum rims.

My Gremlin XPress is based on an AMT 75 Gremlin, chopped, pie cut, and channeled over a MPC 72 Corvette chassis, with scratch built brass working front suspension and steering, and 3D printed Jag IRS from Ron Olsen.  Headers and side pipes are scratch built using polished aluminum tubing.  Engine is an AMC 401.

A lot of scratch building on these two. impressive looking wire wheels and all of the details of the build done in brass. Very creative take on the Gremlin. Again your use of brass for the steering and suspension looks very realistic. Major body changes and the colors really complement the body designs.

Two veeeeery impressive builds!!!

Thank you very much Oli!  I took a look at a few of your builds, and I am blown away!  The 41 Lincoln is just amazing!  I have noticed several first class builders these days living in Germany.  It’s good to have you guys chiming in and showing us your talent!

Love them. I'm still in awe with that brass chassis Model A though, absolutely stunning!
