    How about an old Hubley 32 Chevy coupe reborn as a gasser? I bought this on a trip to the USA in 2017. Wheels and tyres are from a Hot Wheels Twin Mill Monster truck ( unfortunately too big for the Hubley Model As in case you are wondering), engine is from the Monogram S'Cool bus fender wells have been filled scratchbuilt headers. Hope you enjoy the photos!
    Cheers

    I was bored a while ago and made some "garden meeting" diorama for some of my 1:64 diecast rides... I think it took 5 hours and it was my first time scale building :D
    features:
    - "sunlight"
    - lighting for the night
    - driving car (turning plate with neodym magnet)

  18. I found this one today. I have an f47 pickup, luckily not in these beaver colours. Beaver is a former lumber store chain here in Canada. CA1A3C5B-13C7-4C47-87A3-616D9FC46508.jpeg

    Reliant Robin. In the U.K. you could drive these with a Motor cycle license. And take the family with you. The goal of a Robin was to get a speeding ticket. Lol.

    I have always been fascinated with the Holden built Australian Utes. I am also a fan of the 1937 Chevy cars and trucks which I have owned and driven several over the years. The one I figured I would never own was the 37 Chevy Ute so I decided to build my own diecast version. I started with an extra Liberty Classic diecast 37 Chevy Sedan Delivery bank I had. Some planned cutting and grinding along with shaping a few new metal pieces to get the design I wanted. I used JB KwikWeld to put all the parts together. More sanding, a little body filler, primer and finally paint. Since this was originally a collector bank, I decided to keep it that way and ground a coin slot in the tailgate. Another one-off piece to ad to my collection.
