  6. so ive cast my master and now have got back to building it. little changes here and there to make merc from 39 ford. will offer in future
  7. this is a resin body kit from ebay. used chassis from 53 ford under it. finished 4/2/20211
  8. added a 58 chevy panel wagon rear section onto a 58 slammer body. just set it on a 66 street nova chassis for a look
  9. so i removed skirts and made wheel rear wheel wells. decided to cut hood off. will use the 39 ford sedan interior, and a 66 nova chassis trimed to fit and engine. had to move front axle forward to fit wheel well. now trying to decide weather to cast some of my projects this time before i get into finishing them. dont know if there would be enough interest in my interests.
  10. put a dart chassis and 440 magnum in and under and 69 corvette interior, cut the hood off. trying to decide if i want to cast it now before i start finishing.http://public.fotki.com/damodelguy/ for my many projects and pics
  11. always liked the look of a nice low 51 studebaker 3 window. so here goes, looked at a 36 ford roof but used piece of roof cut off a 39 chevy to make a convertible years ago, liked the roundness of the back corners best. but the back needed to curve out more so added a piece of plastic to reshape. cut off back of old roof, filled it in, split my new roof because its to wide, mated to existing. after in place and cleaned up, cut shape for new back window. this was a last night project. sometimes you have to go at it when it hits ya. thanx
  12. picked up a matrange resin body because i needed to make a grille from it for last merc build. was trying to decide if i wanted to make it into a sedan or a coupe. coupe roof is very different than ford but not as attractive. so matranga resin body mated with a 39 ford sedan body. made front fenders longer because merc was visible wider than ford. altered front of rear fender little, and reshaped back window little. want to take the skirts off and put a well like real pic. thanx
  13. took awhile to get back into it, but after month and 1/2 im bit again. resin 36 humpback body, cut bottom off and put bottom off 36 amt coupe kit for nice fit. interior made from 37 sedan kit. chassis was from a built kit i picked up. thanx finished 2/8/2021
  14. thanx guys for kind words. alan the 53 stud, real car sound really interesting, maybe a future adventure of yours in kit form? yes they were darn near all kitbashed. the 32 was a newer kit but used the older fender assembly from a friend is all. and the 55 ford is a promo body and interior with amt 56 kit chassis and engine under it. actually the 40 panel is just chopped and body lowered down on fender assembly. 7 resin bodies, used in misc ways. all builds have been on here during this year. my model buddies say i cant build right out of the box. the tucker i had 1 day before i cut it
  15. was a lot of thickness to cut threw to take off hood, slow, with one of those real thin fold up blades you put in xacto handle worked. split front fenders to move forward for slightly larger look between wheelwell and back of fender that merc has, that makes it different from ford. real mercs are 4 inches longer i believe. when i look at them both that is were i see a difference.
