I don't think I've post this on Sunday models.
Thanks! Nice shoe box, very clean and I like the blue dots. Did you make the Carson top? Hope we get some more models today. I'll post some more of the dealership, if not. Ron...
Yep made the top. although I think it was probably 20 years ago and now its cracked and bowed.
Happy Easter my Styrene Crew.
This is an AMT '49 Merc for a Summer contest on FB.
Modified a '50 Ford top and extended the trunk lid into the cat walk/tulip panel.
Slightly lowered the windshield frame too.
Top trimmed out.
Door and trunk korners rounded.
Side trim deleted.
Great stuff today guys.
I'll throw in a few shots of my dream Willys in 1/25th scale. The 1/1 hasn't happened yet, but I can dream.
Super city Chevrolet sponsors a few of our race cars lol
Haven't built a model in a long time, all ways admire the cars on this page. Here are a few out of my model cabinet from back in the day.
Great looking models, you have great taste. That 58 is killer! hope you post more. Has been a nice Easter Sunday, and Thanks, Ron...
A few more.
Nice build! Just picked one of these up and started building it.
Lot of good stuff today, and I'm loving that 58. Just so happens that I finished my 58 earlier this week.
No styrene from me today, just a dirty old muscle machine.
I was hoping that you would post this week. I have collected all of the muscle machines too . They are very cool. I like how you detailed yours. The 29 pickup is one of my favorites. This lakes model, is one that a good friend built for me from scratch. Its metal and wood. I think I posted it under Hot Rod toys. But though that it fit here also. Thanks, to next week. Ron...
Hey Ron, you dio looks fantastic mate. Not wanting to count rivets so pls don't be offended, I reckon you need to take the base plates of your figures IMO
Haven't posted any model pics in a while.
This is AWESOME! Where can I find one of these?
Try here. Looks like he has some nice salt flats type bodies.
The T Roadster body is available from Ebay seller "oldmandowntheroad" for about $15.00 + some postage. It's cast in white resin and very good quality. He has a bunch of cool stuff.
Its Sunday again. So I'll start off with the Firestone dealer at the slot car track. Looking forward to see some cool models this week. And thanks Ron...
Ron--awesome diorama! It's like the ultimate Christmas hobby window display.
Dago88--great old builds! I picked up a '27 touring a while back, with no intention of actually building it, but after seeing your very classy version I might reconsider.
James--wicked padded top. Looks great with the added trim.
Here's my blurry dark shots for Sunday Models this week...bobber '37 Ford in progress. Inspired by trucks built by Rudy Rodriguez, Ian Loska, Canada Customs...
Resin buick nailhead, scratchbuilt frame, wishbones and quarter-elliptical 4-bar rear suspension, copper wire headers, '34 grille. Just trying to sort out what to do for headlights, gas tank, and taillights, and then it'll be time to prep it for paint. Also might change the air cleaners to flame-arrestor style if I can find some.
I just dug out three for my contribution this week.
My bad ass 34.
And finally, one of a few closed cab Model A Pickups, this one with a potvin blower.
Figured I'd show this too, before putting table back in front of model cabinet.
Crazy mix between Hot Rod, and Speedster.
Thanks Kiwijeff and spex84, Great start, The best thing about models is that you can go crazy with your imagination. You can build fun stuff that you would never try for real. I really like the boat tail speedster. So keep them coming .The Wilder the better and THANKS again. Ron...
Sunday Sunday Sunday, More old shit from the Woodland modelwerks!!!!! As far as i remember I think I spr
ayed this with Pink nail polish(sort of dates it to the pastel street rod days)
Rusty, cool pickup. I really like that interior, scaled pleats and nice detail. thanks Ron...
