"MOGGY" BOOGIE (Doctor Cranky's 1935 Morgan) 1/16th Scale

Oh yeah, the Doctor was feeling it the minute he saw the MINI CRAFT MINIATURES kit on sale at SQUADRON HOBBIES. The I saw the Jay Leno episode with his own MOGGY, and I was hooked.

There are several video updates over at THE CRANKY SHOW of this build in progress, but here are the completed pictures.

Not a kit for beginners, and certainly a challenge for those of you with welding skills. I'd love to see someone make the frame for this one out of brass tubing. That would be so cool.

It's a wonderful kit but a bit finicky at times.

Enjoy, Crankyheads!

The paint is British Racing Green by Tamiya. Even though it looks grainy on these pictures, the paint has been buffed and shined.

After watching your progress videos of this model on the Cranky Show, I decided I have to get one of these babies!

I'm spending my grocery money on model kits... and I blame you! :lol:

LOL! Yes, blame it all on me. This is my first 1/16th scale kit and I think I am hooked on these bigger scales.

Nicely done Virgil! B)

I could see you weathering one of those, and transplanting a 1/12 Revell V-twin (or two :o ) onto it for extra ponies :lol:

Thanks, everyone. Yes, this is my first big scale build, and I can see quickly running out of whatever little room I have if I can building them. LOL.

Beautiful work. Is that the kit chrome?

Welcome to the world of 1/16. I think you'll especially like what you can do with the Model A kits (but I cringe to think what you'd do with the classic luxury cars!!)

minicraft has some nice kits, the lhs has a beautiful 1/16th scale lincoln by minicraft, i think i might get it, and do it all stock, nice and shiney black! it already has opening doors and stuff, all it would need is a killer paintjob, and alot of detail wiring/plumbing....
