  1. Finally finished this one up, it’s the lower body from the sedan with the upper section from the wagon which was then chopped into a Ranchero. Some minor trim shaving and tunnelling the headlights sorted the exterior, while the entire inner body was recessed up into the outer. The suspension is at stock height on the frame and the rolling stock are from Pegasus.
  2. There are more details of your inspiration ‘57 here Ray. https://www.hemmings.com/stories/article/lofty-ambition-1957-ford-gasser
  3. A decision was made regarding the paint, hopefully it’s all downhill from here.
  4. Still very much a work in progress this Ranchero is the child of a previous ‘57 marriage , Gladys, my sedan build that required side spears only found on the Revell wagon body. Body bodies were cut up to achieve the desired trim level on the sedan leaving me with the mis matched remains that were combined to make another wagon. Still with me ? then read on, I have now removed the upper rear from the wagon to give me a Ranchero with stock cab height rather than the odd looking chopped offering from Revell some time ago. To achieve the low stance I’ve recessed the entire floor and chassis up
  5. I’ve no idea why I felt the need to get this kit out of my system as it’s not my usual subject type but I’m glad I took on this build. Pretty much out of the box, added a pair of door handles and my amateur attempts at weathering. I have added the missing radiator cap since the photos were taken.
  6. Top man, your generosity is much appreciated .
  7. Jack, thank you so much for posting the Harley tire to me here in the U.K., I will now build it as you suggested ! Please let me reimburse you for for the the part and overseas postage.
  8. I managed to make this from an original Bullhorn with help from the Serpent kit.
  9. You do Jack ! I have had this kit for around 3 years and never found a suitable tire. Would you sell it , and more importantly put it in an envelope to the U.K. at my expense ?
  10. I have this U.K. issued double Harley kit, sadly there is only one bike and the box is poor - but it is cool ! I could really use a rear tyre if anyone has a spare.....
  11. This was a enjoyable quick stress free build that turned out quite nice. There are numerous variations available straight from the box, my only modifications were to add a belt tensioner for the blower and some plug wires as the motor looked a little bare. Hope you guys approve.
