Egyptian Raider Pickup with Tomb Trailer

Recommended Posts

I decided I had to come up with a plan for the 1932 interior, I went from resin to foam with button tufted patterns to this made out of the urethane foam....It made for a wide interior so would be going with a single seat and a center mounted steering wheel. The more I look at it the more that I am not sure if it will stay this way but better than what I had before which was nothing....

rough formed the foam to fit the body...

got it shaped closer to the finished shape.

decided the seat back needed more detail...

Thanks Carl and Jake, yeah that particular kit of the 1932 was one of the worst engineered models I have ever worked with and the interior did not even line up with the doors and door panels. Going this route and will either care hieroglyphics in the foam or something like that.

The grille looks cool, on the 32. Thanks for the updates, I like following this build very artistic.

Thank you Bill and Carl,

not much of an update got the tail on the car and some resin casted pieces under the the car on the frame, also tried out a set of supremes and I like the look of them over the wires, but not sure if they will be the final wheels....

Thanks Carl, yes at this stage I do lot of fooling around with the gamer bits to see what works, not liking the original bumpers on it so have to change them up a bit.

Thank you Carl, I have a question for you? do you think the hands on top of the fenders is a bit too much? they have to be painted yet just right to be convincing but was curious as to what others thought, I may not add them for a cleaner look, but will see as it progresses....

They are and there just a little big but everything else is great.

Thanks Carl, my thoughts exactly, may not use them was thinking of trying to paint them first and if the painting comes out ok I may use them unless I can find another place to put them.

not much of an update this morning I usually get a full night in Sunday night but had other things to take care of so what little time I did use I had to build up the wall around the wheel wells in the rear to not show the plastic used for the floor of the 32, got the pass door hinge on the pickup, filled in a gap at the bottom edges of the firewall with a thing strip of plastic, and played around with placement of other Egyptian items on the under carriage as well at the rear shelf tray of the 32.....

Finally got the both doors hinged...

and the floor got a sliver of foam sanded down thin enough as a floor.

Decided to take another crack at a hood hinge, this one works a lot better, it still needs to be slide out as it is opened but works better than all the other attempts...

have had this idea for a while but if I go for it will take hours to get the pyramids sanded thin and shaped to fit the best but this is about the only good place for them on the project as tiles under the '32.

I see your point on the tiles Darren. They also look like they have different thickness in the picture...

Yes they do i did a mold of a jewelry piece and when i would pour the mold I did not take care to pull off the excess resin so some are thicker than others, I could go back in and re pour them but would use a lot of resin so ill just take my time and sand them till they all are very thin and fit the corners just right.

another little update planning on adding taillights to the sarcophagus on the fenders,
94253EF4-E5EF-4513-AA23-E8982884317C_zps
the final attempt on a hood hinge and it came out great, very little pulling on it as it opens, now all ill need to add once the inner fenders are in is a prop rod to hold it up....
