  1. Welcome race fans, to the 11th annual running of the Model Car Cannonball Run. This year’s run is shaping up to be especially memorable as the racers will have to leave their beloved V8’s at home! That’s right, the only allowed power plants are in-liners of any variety. So expect some serious mad scientist engineering as our race teams are going to strive for every last possible horsepower. There is no shortage of in-line power plants available, both foreign and domestic. So which engine gets chosen and why will be of particular interest. The rules: The theme is in-line engines
  2. This is my entry into the Cannonball CBP down below, but as a matter of a searchable record I want this presented here in a separate, comprehensive thread. Like many Monogram models of that era ('69 Camaro, '57 Nomad), the 53 is so disproportionate it welcomes body mods. The trunk is too long and I considered sectioning that but, nah. A scale 6-inches ready to be cut laterally throughout the car, which includes the interior bucket and engine compartment. Quarter inch tape demarcates well. Just enough room in the back to get away with it. I wanted to do th
  3. It's time to kick around next years theme. I will be running it and hopefully participating. So I'd like everyone who is planning on participating suggest TWO themes. Just two. We need to keep this thing manageable. Later on I'll tally it up and we'll vote. I'd also like an explanation of what your idea is. For instance if you're gonna suggest musclecars, tell us what years and level of technology allowed. Give us specifics. I'm gonna chew on it for a while and get back to you.
  4. Voting thread to decide the winner of the 2016 Cannonball Run CBP. This year we took the race over sea's to Australia, the theme this year was a Off-Road Outback Theme. Builders were tasked with constructing vehicles both capable of traveling Off-Road and also surviving the course. We had a total of 5 completed builds, they will be listed below in order appearing in the poll, we kindly ask that you cast your vote to decide this years winner. To see additional pictures please visit the the completed builds thread here: 2016 Cannonball (Aussieball) Completed Buillds Thread Thank you in advance!
  5. This is my build for the cannonball run this year the theme was sleepers. I used a a Ferrari 599 gto from revell for the underneath including the engine, transmission, exhaust, brakes and tires. The white walls were used to fill the gap between the stock caps and Ferrari tires. The wooden bed was made to hide the trans and exhaust. Other than the rear wheel wells the interior is stock with the exception of the steering wheel it's from 69 Camaro and the paddle shifters from the Ferrari.
  6. My entry into the CannonBall Run 2015 Ok ..here we go... '62 chev Impala, with a corvette engine,.... sounds simple enough,... Stretched the corvette chassis, a scale 12" and the drive shaft, with 1/4" alum. tube,... Twin turbo setup,... (don't look too close) Wheels are reverse chromes from the 49 merc kit, cut the trunk open to install a nascar gas tank , and easy fill,... Pretty much gutted the interior and installed laptop and GPS,... And that puts an end to a year long project,.. LETS RACE!! Cheers!!
  7. This is a repost of one of the lost MCM threads from last week. Those who have commented previously, I thank you. You needn't oblige twice, I just want this back on here as a matter of record. Thanks. My entry in the 2014 Cannonball CBP. Wired engine, flared fenders, rebuilt oversize gas tank, shortened rear end with custom nose and tail.
  8. Hi again folks, here's a repost of the '68 Dart I made for the 2014 Cannonball run CBP. It's packing the 426 Cross Ram Hemi, two tone paint, (Chrysler Inferno Red and Gloss Black), and 3D printed rims modeled by myself in Blender 3D and printed via Shapeways. It also marks my very first attempt at Bare Metal Foiling, it's was done with a dull blade (forgot to pick up new lol) so it's probably not the best but I'm happy with it. Got loads more of respect for you guys that do all these chromed classics. I knew it wasn't easy but now I have a far better understanding of just how delicate this
  9. Working on getting a Countach engine in a 68 firebird. I put the rear wing, side air scoops, and seats into the Pontiac, which work out fairly well. Now I need to concentrate on the body and brake/fuel lines. Getting the Lamborghini radiators attached to the grill is going to be a challenge.
