So every pay day i have been "treating" myself to a model.I figured I'll get them while they have them in stock.I wish the stores up here sold the larger scale models or a flathead model.Anyway just thought I'd share the start to my new "collecting "addiction.
I'll throw in a few...
Good stuff, guys!
HalfAssKustoms, some great looking rods at that show! Where was that?
Here's my rare contribution for today...
Late this summer I picked up this old AMT '34 Ford pickup off ebay 'cause I thought the old paint looked cool, and I was the only bidder at $9.99! It's an original issue of the kit, molded in red plastic. The paint appeared to be Testor's Burgundy Purple Metallic applied ages ago. When I got the model, even though the paint was a bit rougher than I expected, I still decided to disassemble the model, clean it up (smelled like an ash tray full of Lucky Strike butts!), polish the old paint and rebuild it using some new-old parts from an incomplete original issue of the kit I had in the stash.
Before the rebuild. Note the spare tire cover is a continental kit piece from an unknown kit. Revell U.S. Royal Master tires on custom Barris "flying saucer" wheelcovers from the kit. '32 Ford bumpers front and rear...
After, rebuild with polished-out original paint...
Custom taillights from an original issue '34 pickup kit, Bare Metal Foil on all the bed cover snaps. Wheels and tires from an old-tool Ala Kart. Covered the face of the old spare cover with some sheet styrene, smoothed it out and added some stretched sprue around the outside to represent piping before spraying with Tamiya Racing White and Dullcoat to make it look like a vinyl cover...
'49 Ford steering wheel. Dash and wheel centers painted with NOS Testors Burgundy Purple Metallic...
Engine, before with oxidized plating revealing red plastic. Original worn headlight rims in painted buckets...
After. Engine painted Tamiya Lavendar with new valve covers. Sorry, no wiring or other details this time! Headlight assembly replaced, with bracket, buckets and horn in Alclad, plus new radiator cap, emblem and front bumper...
Just some left over parts.......
That's a nice car!!
Great show this week................thanks guys!
Good job Frog Hawk and everyone else....
Here's a 34 pickup I just whipped up..
Good looking stuff folks !! Miwi: where are those cool front lights from? Resin stuff or something old and expensive ?
Great talent Wishing everyone a safe, healthy Merry Christmas. Hope everyone gets some good old models to build.
