  2. That woody is pretty cool, I wonder how many people out there realise how damn hard it is to get the wood to look so right!!??

    The Edsel has a good looking start! Slice and dice buddy! The more you can do the better, keep us posted on this build.

    Cheers,

    Doc.

    Great models, all of you. Here's an 1/8 scale VW midget I'm scratch building. First time I have ever built a body out of sheet styrene ( usually use fiberglass ). [​IMG]

  9. Old Sprinter, I don't think you could possibly go wrong with your skill level, weather building in a new medium or something you always use.
    To have half of your skill!! Heaven!!
    As always a great looking build mate.

    So many great builds so far today! Massive inspiration all around. :D

    Michael (miwi), I've seen your work elsewhere and I'm glad I've gotten the chance to say how super fine that Ford woodie turned out. It got bounced from the last board I (briefly) saw it on...

    Rod, your down under mate sure builds 'em nice, especially that Revell '40 Ford. It really does that great kit justice. Cool color combo...

    Old Sprinter, I'm so glad to see more of this project. I loved it in its bare frame but the bodywork is just as nice. I'm dying to know more about how you formed the sheet styrene (thickness, techniques, etc.). Might there be somewhere where you've posted a w.i.p.?

    Thanks again, everyone. I'll check back later to see what else pops up this Sunday!

    Here's the latest off my bench. First off, this car never existed; it’s a pure flight of fancy. But Frank Baron and Bob Tattersfield did exist, and in 1948 they were the first to successfully market a 4 carburetor manifold for the Ford Flathead, along with an innovative set of cylinder heads which utilized unique pop up pistons for increased efficiency and compression. This was while they ran their immaculately turned out and beautiful belly tank at the dry lakes. Tattersfield came from a well to do family which manufactured auto parts, a “Hollywood”guy who liked fast, flashy cars and the lifestyle to go with it. Frank Baron came from a more modest background. He was all business and kept a low profile. What if a little of Bob Tattersfield had rubbed off on Frank Baron? What if he had built a shop car that was as slick as the lakester he shared with Bob? This model is the result. The historical Frank Baron wouldn’t be caught dead in a car like this, but it sure would have been an eye-catcher running around L.A. in 1948. The address for Baron Automobile Service is real, BTW. It’s where you went to have your Tattersfield-Baron hop up equipment installed after you bought it from the factory that Bob’s dad owned.

    The car is based on an AMT ’36 Ford 5-window kit with a Jimmy Flintstone chopped 3-window body and home made decals.

    Thanx for lookin',
    B.
