I've been gathering parts to make a 23 T. Last time I was working on it, I stuck the incomplete vehicle and all its parts on ebay, so I have to start from scratch.

Gettin a amt model T kit

That's what I'm starting with too. I have the one that is a twin pack with the coupe.

My first model T was a Revell one and that kit was not fun!

My second (incomplete) one was the AMT variant with the barrel at the back, also a twin pack. This coupe twin pack is just another variation on the same kit.

Hey guys, Here's my contribution, Rolling bones style 3 window, pinched frame rails, mild channel, 6" scale chop. I'm really excited about this build! It will need a hood stretch, and Probably a Hilborn injected SBC, with ram horns.

Finally went forwards instead of back.

Front axle, bones, and spring are settled.

Decided on the Red Ram Hemi for power. It'll get plug wires and scratch built solder headers.
