  1. Dang Dennis that thing is wild! But yet restrained. There is a fine line between cool and ugly on these 60s radical customs, and you are nailing the balance. I love the slicks and roll cage on a custom!
  2. A 46 Pontiac with a 460 Ford motor, AMC pacer front end, built by some Missouri Hillbillies. No offense to any hillbillies reading this. I have a picture of it somewhere. It was all rusty, and it was built way before "patina" was cool.
  3. Thank you Tim, I've been drooling over your builds in SAE since I was a kid. Thanks! That's high praise! Thank you to everyone else who shared kind words. Maybe one day I'll build a 1:1 32 Roadster.
  4. Beautiful! Nice clean build.
  5. This is a tribute to the McGee/Scritchfield/Meyer 32 Roadster. It’s not an exact replica, but close. Many thanks to Ed at Drag City castings for the top. It’s his piece that inspired the entire build. Built from a Revell 32 roadster mostly box stock with the dash, windshield and grille insert from the 32 Rat Roadster kit. Flathead from the 32 sedan kit, and complete front suspension from the Revell Model A roadster, as well as wheels and tires from the same kit. 50 Pontiac tail lights from the 32 5w kit. The hood was the most challenging, I grafted in louvers for the ho
  6. Looking forward to this build. Blasphemi is a pretty straightforward drag car, and shouldn't be too difficult to recreate. The only challenge might be printing off the decals. Which version are you doing? Current with the gold roof and blower, or original, all black with stack injection? Either way it'll be cool.
  7. TRADITIONAL HOT RODS AND KUSTOMS!!!! With a few racing kits, NASCAR and sprint car stuff occasionally. I'm not sure if I could even attempt building a stock vehicle unless my life depended on it.
  8. It's really hit and miss for me. When the pandemic hit, I hadn't touched a model build in 2-3 years. Since March of 2020 I have cranked out 6 builds! As for day to day, I get on kicks where I'll work everyday but sometimes I'll go a week without doing anything. I'm married with 4 little kids and a full-time job, so it varies.
  9. Nice chop! I applaud your effort on the rear window, looks good! But I have seen several 1:1 Tudors and Coupes chopped like yours where they laid the roof forward and the rear window was left stock height. I didn't chop mine, but here's the 1:1 Tudor I built a few years ago...
  10. I'm really glad someone brought this thread back up again.... incredible! And, I've always wanted to put an Offy in something. Where did you get that motor?
  11. NICE VWs! I really want to get back working on it, but we are staying in a rental home because our house flooded due to a burst pipe. And, my house is not close to the rental place we're staying. Hopefully I'll get some time to work on it this summer.
  12. I'm pretty terrible at build threads, I did one for a 1:1 40 sedan on the HAMB a few years ago, did a lot better with that one. For some reason I don't remember to take pictures of what I'm doing.. anywho... here is a spy shot of the McGee Roadster. I'll probably finish it and post a new thread in the on the shelf section at this point.
