Phantom 1937 BMW sedan delivery mockup

Recommended Posts

Here's what you get when you cross a Heller 1937 BMW 328 with an MPC snap '33 Willys sedan delivery! Still lots of work to do, but it seems to blend together nicely. Looks kinda longish to me, but maybe once its in primer it'll look a bit better. I think the contrasting styrene colors are fighting each other somewhat. You can see how much the BMW was stretched from original by the gap in the running board...

Comments welcome :)

That is some great thinking there, i think this will be one of those builds that stand out in the crowd, for the right reasons.

I think the V-12 Allison engine would be as snug as a bug in there ;)

find a twelve-port straight 6 to put in it (or just make one...).

the blame for this goes to Tim Boyd, I went off in search of some photos/data based on his request...didn't find what he was looking for but got to read up on some fascinating and innovative history.

I think it should be shorter unless you're going for the ambulance/hearse look.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I think it would be too wide, but I'd definitely stretch a V8 into a V12 or something.

I can't believe how well the parts fit. I agree with a prior post to shorten it up. A chop would look very nice as well.
