Posted (edited) · Report post

My next build will be the hotrod in the double T kit. I have some parts primed and have drilled out the rear deck for some tail light I want to use. I also cut a hole in the roof so to be a bit different and to offer a view into the interior. Not sure of the whole finished look I am going for but will just keep working on it and see what happens. hotrod1001.jpghotrod1002.jpghotrod1003.jpg

I have had this kit for a while and this may give me inspiration into building it. thing is when i sit the body next to other cars in the same scale it looks more like 1/32 scale to me but cant wait to see what you come up with. Following this topic for sure, great start.

OK Mark, no rat rod. And yes this body does seem to be undersized for a 1/25 scale.

Moving right along I was able to get more done today. Body painted and decaled but not yet cleared. Some other parts painted and some in primer. I am planning on using the white walls but not sure I like the look with the rears being narrow and the fronts wider. Does this bother anyone else who may be reading this ? Should I perhaps run black walls up front ?

I would say black walls up front or try matching the rears better since it not going to be a Rat Rod :)

Thanks Walt. You can get the decals from Flaming Graphics or now called Flaming Colors I think. They have a wide selection of decals that are meant to be used on Hotwheels cars. If you order any you have to coat them before you use them.

Thanks guys. As an old geezer I really enjoy building these re-releases that I built when they were new. Hopefully they are at least a little better now then the last time I built them.

Was able to manage to get more done on this build. Nothing totally done yet but made progress on the tires and wheels, the interior has been flocked, the body has been cleared. Still lots to do.

Funny, I just noticed when I was listing the photos that I painted the radiator shell the frame color and it should be body color. I'm an idiot ! May or may not change it.
