Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. I was inspired by the many UK built Fordsons (as we call them) from the 70's. Starting with the Revell gasser kit, much work was done to convert the drag racer to a street rod: Front struts and steering rack from the Revell Pro Stock Camaro, with lower arms from a Buttera T. The rack was cut into four pieces, adapted to right hand drive and narrowed (a lot!). The upper strut mount had to be moved, and the inner guards were extended back with plastic card. Rear end was sourced from the Dodge A100 pickup, shortened and narrowed with parts box shocks. The engine and 'box came from the Revell Ford Escort rally car, with a scratch built exhaust. For a cleaner look, the door hinge systems were removed and the resulting 16 holes filled. Strip styrene was used to enlarge the doors for a better fit. Model Car Garage provided the photoetch grilles, and parts box clear headlight lenses replace the chrome plated kit items. The front tyres came from the kit, wheels and rear tyres are parts box items. Paint is my usual Tamiya rattle can, this time Metallic Orange. Back in the day, many hot rods in the UK had names, a Slixx decal sheet provided a suitable name for mine. A couple of details are still to be added but I'm pleased with the result so far. Thanks for looking.
