Wild Bills Outlaw

Got this JimmyFlintstone resin "Wild Bills Outlaw Coupe" in 1/25th. Says to use AMT 1925 kit but Im using the Revell 1/24th Ford "T" street rod with trailer since I have it as a parts car. The kit came apart pretty easy for being a fragile Tbucket, and I removed all the chrome plating. The interior does not even come close to fitting so that will need to be made. The rear body on this resin piece seems to have started as a 50 Ford pickup hood. I have the body cleaned up and chassis rear cut to fit but dont really have a plan , just plan as I go.

Fun to see what you may do with this one. I've had one in the stash for some time now. I thought about setting it on a Mysterion chassis, but haven't given a lot of thought yet, too many other projects ahead of that!

The use of a Ford hood as the turtle deck was clever for the person that created the master for JF. It would be neat to find a way to create a radiator shell from something on the rear of the a same kit;-)

Looks like the rest of the body grew out of the hood! 

That hood was the first thing I noticed and I can't unsee it so I can enjoy the rest of the car.

I'd have to get rid of the vent holes just to eliminate the visual identity of its origin.

But that's just me.

I'd use 'em to set in tail light lenses!

Got the chassis about 80% done, the tire  and wheel combo changed ( again )  started building the interior and its such a small area it will kind of resemble a dune buggy interior.

Body is as smooth as it will ever be so on with the color , metallic red over gold. Added a deck tank . Interior is a scratched item work in progress and will be done in black and white. The engine is ready for paint except the headers need work yet. Big back tires and wheels are the final choice as are the fronts. Custom front hubcaps are old items found in my parts box touched up with Molotow chrome.
