Interesting, did not realize how different the flares are on the LB Ken Mary Works No. 6, you should build that one mate.

That Gazelle is a good example of Bosozuku.  Crazy looking thing.

I probably should try and build one. The main reason that one stalled was because I planned to paint it just like the 1:1. I do have 4-5 of these kits so maybe when the weather improves I’ll knock one out. 

 

Bosozuko gang inspired Gazelle. Once I’m more comfortable with the airbrush I’ll get them back on the bench!

update of the build

Something newer. Rocket Bunny 86 on some 3D printed wheels. Because I don’t just build the cars from the 60s, 70s and 80s

...Or 2500s. PM me what's going on with your sci fi backgrounds. My inner replica prop nerd wants to know.

Want to do 50's telephone truck so I mocked up two different work boxes. One has the length of the Revell 56 ford pick-up body and the other the top of the work box is the length of the pick-up body. Just put it in the back of a 60 Chevy pick-up to compare. What is your choice. short or long? Input appreciated.

Here’s a few of mine, including some I really need to get back on.

I may go to some Pegasus Chrome Reverse wheels and big and little tires on this one.


This one needs paint

Wow! this is Awesome! I'd like to see this one get finished! 

Thanks, that one is going to be more of a space ship type car (think Thundercougarfalconbird, minus the masculinity issues:lol:) once it's done.

Mocked up one of my favourites that really have gotten stuck. Since i don’t  want to make it to a nascar the route for the build have been hard to set.

I think I will go with 2gen Camaro interior with a rear seat delete from amt 67 Chevelle. Some bucket/racing seats, a NA big block and manual transmission.

Love the 86. How well does the rocket bunny body parts fit? I have the BRZ, but was thinking about picking up the bunny as well.

The Rocket Bunny over fenders fit perfect 👌 Just need to be careful when trimming the front guard behind the front wheel. I don’t have a pic of the BRZ with RB fenders but the front bumper is different where the over fender locates.

blown 392 hemi out of a 1320 diecast, a pair of revell willys rear slicks and wheels, an uncut 32 3 window and a pair of Drag City Casting halibrand front wheels on AMT Firestones. throw in some parts box "ladder bars" and its shaping up to become a pretty wicked nose up axle car... 

 

the chopped 3 window is a Drag City Casting body, the rest is Revell 3 window with Revell thunderbolt rear wheels and slicks. the front are my mock up slingster wheels and tires. 

 

It always amazes me how 2 cars from the same era with similar parts can have 2 different looks
