Hello Guys,
They say modellers is somewhat masochistic, mainly by brazilian lands here... For the price we pay for our kits here in Brazil, the lack of tools and accessories to our hobby, PEs, etc, etc, etc...
Haul here "Assemble Challenge Nº 02" from my experience in the hobby: assemble a kit Heller, a car featureless and difficult to search and make it a Rat Hod worthy of putting on the shelf of my humble collection! Has anyone found a French Rat Hod around? Will commit unpardonable sacrilege to the task?

After the Rat Evilrod 666 (see here the assembly: ?, I present to you my newest project: French Ratz - Renault Vivastella 1932 | Codename "Rust Yellow Ball"! Hehehehehe ...
I have a reference "rather vague" what can I transform my project. In reality, it is more moral support than design reference itself.

In the next pictures you will see the pre-assembly of the front suspension, chassis, engine and detail onsite battery (I have seen that neither will appear in the final assembly).

Dryfit of frontal part...

I prefer the real stuff to try to make plastic look like metal, wood, glass, etc... Still do the finishing. In the next update, I already have the full floor.

Great looking build. Love the details you are putting into it.

I'd say that you are a bit masochistic! It made me just cringe looking at the photos and thinking that you are using a double edged razor blade to cut with. Last time I used one of those in that manner I almost needed stitches before I was done. Let's just say there was a lot of blood to clean up.

Later-

Thanks man! The PE set is a creation of my brain... Huahuahauhauha... I tried to commercialize it but the product was too expensive.
