    I knew going into it that building a fenderless '36 Ford was a "no no" among hot rodders but I did it anyway. See the build thread here: http://trakinscale.proboards.com/thread/18882/kbp-1936-ford?page=1 .

    My story is that a teen received this free roadster in 1960 after a low-speed crash that mangled the bumpers, fenders and running boards. He had some skills and access to a shop so he fixed up the car into a low-buck rod. What little money he had went into dull boring stuff to bring the nearly 25-year-old car back such as wheel bearings, U-joints, water pump, etc. He had a little bit to spend on extras like glass packs, dual exhaust and a steering wheel. A commercial truck painter gave him some leftover yellow paint and taught him the basics of spraying. Still not much was done cosmetically apart from welding up holes. The kid brushed gloss black on stuff that could be seen so that's why only the outer side of the frame rails are painted. This is how it might have looked in 1966 with no additional work done on it.

    ^^^^^that could have been me in another life. Wait, its me now lol. Just picked up another rusty project car, got no money to build with and don't care what others think should be done as I'm building it for me. That's what hot rodding was about yeah?

    Here’s a little AMT ‘32 roadster I’ve been working on. Pretty much box stock from the latest release with the exception of a couple items. Air cleaners are from the ‘36 Ford kit, front wheels from the ‘39 Ford Tudor and rear wheels are from my dad’s old parts box from the ‘60s. I’m guessing that they are from one of the AMT ‘32 Ford offerings of the period.

    81D4sm2.jpg Here's a 50-year-old photo that I made when I was fifteen. That crude-looking Christmas tree actually functioned. I made it to use with a slot car drag strip — even the appropriate foul light glowed red if anybody jumped the gun. I still have the tree and control (modified motorized timer for a washing machine), the Nomad model and the wall in the background.

    What if Pontiac had commissioned a custom rod in 1961? This is what it might have looked like.

    IMG_1970sm.jpg I heavily modified a Revell Club De Mer body and put it on a modified Moebius 1961 Pontiac Ventura chassis. The taillights are from the Revell Roth Beatnik Bandit. The meats are 1960-1964 Goodyear stock car tires by PPP.

    This is the best built orange crate i have ever seen. This kit is a pain in the ass to build, I've tried it a couple of times and the parts are too tiny and fragile. This was built by my buddy Butch a couple of months ago. And it is phenomenal. :D
    p.s. I did give him the left overs from my botched kit to make his complete because a couple of parts did break.

  25. No argument here. Like a lot of the classic Revell kits of the early 60s...the TriFive Chevies, the Roth cars, the speed and show stuff like the Tommy Ivo-Tony Nancy-Mickey Thompson stuff...great attention to detail but really difficult to fit it all together.

    IMC kits were delicate as well. I had their Ford GT, Mustang II, Cougar II and '48 Ford Convertible kits. I was overwhelmed by the detail in those kits.
