I gonna build both...but the flathead will sit between the frame rails!
Hope you got enough carbs....
I might start my BiG Deuce build... If I do, I'll sign in on the fun..
I might start on the '63 vintage kit or one of the newer ones... The vintage kit has the "grain of wheat" light bulbs for the headlights and tail lights... Hope they're still good.. I'll have to test those before assembly...
That is what I did. I kept several detail pieces from a Big deuce my brother
built as a kid. The only motor was the 326 and my plans were to use it, with the log 'fold and 6 pots in a 1:8 '65 'Vette. I always thought the Pontiac engine block had better detail then then the SBC in the 'Vette. Well, when it was announced the Big Deuce was back, I revised my plans so, plenty of carbs for both engines in the new kit and 3 spares to put in a box in the trunk ...
The 'vette may still get the Ponch mill but I may fabricate a 6-pack and it will wear skinny
tires capped with the moon discs. I'm thinking Bonneville.
Hoping some one may be able to help me here, I am looking for a 1/32 scale 32 5 window coupe. I don't even know if anyone ever built a kit of it!!?? I have a Pyro 32 3 window, very old and shows it kit! I would like a newer kit with less flaws (Getting lazy on fixing things!!)
Thanks in advance guys,
Doc, I'm not sure but I don't recall seeing them. The other rare old one is the Revell Highway Pioneers 3W, as I'm sure you know, I don't know if anyone would dare to build one these days! But it was a pretty nice kit. Gary
OK im in now I just need a kit!!!! Getting one this weekend!!!!
Cool!... Anybody else joining???....
Reallyy Cooolll !!!
Sounds like a fun challenge, Guess I'm hitting the hobby shop.
I'm in with a replica of the Neal East roadster using the Monogram 1/24 kit. Posting pictures in progress is the hard part!
It's on! Get to building!!!
Hit it and Hit it Hard!
Im in!!! just got the last kit i needed for parts!!!
I worked on mine today at work.Not long though.Ill do a little more bodywork tonight....
Im in. Sign me up please!
Since '32 Fords are my favorite hot rod how can you not want to build one for a build-off.Count me in and thanks for starting the thread.
Remember if YOu are entering, join our model club under social groups.
Yup, got the vicky interior!!!! Anybody have the correct interior???? Otherwise im gonna start cutting and see what happens
Now thats something i never would have thought of....got me thinkin now doc, thanks!!!!!!!
First question I should have asked,is there a limit to how many can be entered.I was going to enter 2,but if there is a limit of just 1 that's also fine by me.Here are the 2 I am going to enter or I'll have to pick between the 2 if 1 is the limit.
i havnt built a model in a long time..but i have the ed roth "outlaw" new in the box..ive been wanting to build.would this kit work?
Got a little done...my engine painted and such!
Drilled and painted the axle and the bones!
Man Im stoked for this build off!
This particular Build-Off is for '32 Ford based entries. The Outlaw was a custom 'glass body on a Model A frame.
And no, there's no limit on how many builds you can enter.
I think I'm gonna try & do something with the remnants of an old built-up I have laying around, too. Looks like I just drug it out of a scale barn....
Go Jeff go! Get um both done!
Meanwile...I might have another to enter!
I had this one all done...then my kitten (Cuda) got a hold of it!
all that is left is the coupe body and a pile of parts! So...maybe!
Hmmmm, kinda familiar!!
This one was a true parts box special, AMT 5 window body, roof from two Revell 32 3 windows. Chassis was brass and everything else was from the parts boxes!!
^^^Bad Ass^^^! Nice work Doc!
Sweet stuff Doc!
Neal, git 'er done! The big Deuce is looking good, I like the drilled parts.
Count me in. Got a 3 window I chopped, but thats as far as I got with it. Will have it done for sure.
