Hello,

The last few months i made a custom Rat Rod using 2 kits from AMT, a '57 Chevy "bel air" and a '50 Chevy pickup truck 3100. My inspiration i found at the internet , see picture below.

For this build i made a lot of custom work...

For example:

  • Topchop
  • fueltank
  • rollbars
  • Z-chassis and channel
  • grill
  • engine components
  • wheelbay rear
  • radiator
  • and more...

Aftermarket:

  • wheels and tires
  • engine components
  • bomberseats

I hope you like it. !

Nice! Love how you took the basic overall 'feel' of the 1:1, and then went your own way with it.

Nice! I like yer model better than the real car. On the 1:1, the box is too short and doesn't look like its sitting right. Good job!

I'm glad my car is your inspiration for your model. Your model turned out nice. If you'd like to follow the original car here is the link. https://www.facebook.com/Custom-Speeds-Skull-Orchard-Express-518479201625209/. My car graced the cover of Hotrod Magazine Feb 2012. It is a 1936 International cab and a 1958 Dodge Coronet rear panels. Keep up the good work. I always like to look at the models being built and where you get your inspiration.
