Duece and a drop

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I have this idea of a hot rod duece with a retro type tear drop trailer.

I will use the new Revell 32 Ford and a resin teardrop trailer(thanks Len :) ).

Just getting started,well believe it or not I already have a few hours into the trailer.

Made a frame and axle out of sprue and have a hitch from parts box in mind

and also made fenders from sheet styrene.

Bear with me,thanks for checking it out and any ideas are welcome.

I got lucky and found it through the Wanted section here and made a trade.

I have seen a Jimmy Flinstone teardrop and a

teardrop from the Australian store that sells the Uncertian T on Ebay.

The Flintstone teardrop is also available on Ebay.

I believe they go for $20 roughly.

Thinking two tone,possibly blue/silver or maroon/silver.

Very preliminary though.

I probably should have a game plan laid out B).

I used very thin sheet styrene (.010) and used the clamps(24 hrs) to add a little curvature,

then allowed the glue to do the rest.

Possibly since I have the skirts on the outside of the fenders I was able to use the thin styrene.

I'm not sure if the .010 would look to thin with exposed edges.

* I tried multiquote but it was all jumbled together. B)
