Put pictures back up since they don't show up anymore! This is one of my favorite builds.

Thanks for reposting the pics. That's quite a car!

I wish others would take the time to repost the missing pics, especially the ones blocked by Photobucket. Maybe this will inspire them... :unsure:

Thank you .  I saw yours , very cool. I made mine from the 56 just to be different,  but also did the master for the resin body that Jimmy Flintstone sells.

Looks so awesome! But I don't understand, how would it keep running cool without a radiator? I see the water hoses, so IDK.

Thanks, the radiator and fans are mounted in the rear . That is what the holes are for in the rear door.

Really? wow. I looked at a few of the castings a vendor was selling at a show. I was able to back engineer how you made it and made my own from a monogram 57 nomad body.

I changed the rear mounted radiator concept in mine and used the cutdown radiator from a old revell beatnik bandit kit.

That's the same kit I used , not the best kit. But doesn't really matter when you cut it up. I've got the original body and a few of the very first castings. I also made a car-toon version.20170901_205926.thumb.jpg.31a6245cad8df743a61a3ab22cb4442e.jpg20170901_205956.thumb.jpg.9535c64213dae55380199f95a3536da3.jpg
