    Don't sweat the finishing part of this. It really is kool as it sits. It's a neat display piece.
    Modeling has to be somewhat enjoyable, otherwise why bother. I'm getting back into it
    after a 24 year layoff.

    Mike your stuff looks pretty damn good to me..... don't back out to far ...you have some good idea's I would like to see more.... I get the shaky hand thing myself sometimes now when they start to shake a bit I go to my model paint cabinet and shake a few cans or bottle's of paint till it calms down then go back to what I was doing.....hang in there.....

    The most important thing to remember building models is "Keep it Fun"! If you try to keep up with top notch builders, it won't be fun. Do it for your enjoyment, not as a competition.

    Thanks @froghawk! Building the Turbonique was one of the most fun parts of the whole project. The quickchange came from the parts bin, while I'm pretty sure the axle bells came from the Tony Nancy "22 Jr." kit or AMT "Double Dragster." On the business end, I used a transmission from one of the the AMT Parts Pack engines, a steel wheel from the "Little Red Wagon" kit (drilled out in the center) and, as the final touch, a .22 caliber shell casing for the exhaust. I painted the entire thing to look like metal and plumbed it up. Looking back, I totally should have taken photos step-by-step for those looking to add a boost to their next drag car project.

    I've also included the inspiration for this build. Nothing like some mid-'60s strip/show machines!

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Good Fri. Morning to ya all. Hope everyone is safe in Tx. & Fla. Did a little work on my diorama . Ed.
     
  8. OK, not really H.A.M.B. friendly in any sense, but still a diorama. I recently found this "Home Sweet Home" diorama I built when I was living in Eureka back in the mid-seventies. Everything in the pictures was built from scratch except for the ceramic dog and the framed painting on the wall. The figures are made from bread dough with marijuana seed eyes. All the cigarettes are painted spaghetti. The walls are painted foamcore and the window is built from strip styrene and actually opens and closes. The carpet is felt stretched over foamcore. The table and TV were built from stripwood, sheet styrene, wire etc. Hope you all enjoy this change of pace model. LOL
    BTW, their 40 Ford coupe is parked outside. :D

    They all look great to me. I thing they are all HAMB friendly. Most of us like to see all kinds of hot rods. HAMB friendly or not.

    I have to agree with ELS. There are a few threads that I feel don't have to be strangled by tight
    rules, and this is one of them. I want to see what you fellows are putting together, or have put together.

    Thanks guys for the comments,if there are rules for models being HAMB friendly then i was not aware of such,i know they like the 1:1's to be but didn't know it was also a criteria for models.If there is such a rule then I will abide by them,if not,well....

    WTF.... someone let the bread blob people post go with out a bitch...but then had to bring the not h.a.m.b friendly quote in to play on the next post..... once again WTF....at least they were models of cars.......and I didn't see a problem with them....or the bread people ... I did find that post funny, the bread people, but it wasn't for this thread....but I'm not the H.A.M.B Police so my opinion's don't count....no worries I have herd that before..... don't let this thread go the way of others just because someone is having a bad day or cannot read past what there own mind is capable of opening up to.....yes I know there's rules but crap there just models and guys enjoying there hobby ...just saying....well I probably just lost my welcome..............

    Way OT, but is pre-'65. Meng's "egg tank" Sherman. It was a nice little slump buster.

    Well I did it again.. I went and started cutting up another model, still working on the chopped up 36 roadster now coupe, but the other night I got this idea for 1/12th 57 Chevy I had ...started by doing some cutting and slicing on the box cover picture...then this morning I took the saw to the model....plan is a bit of sectioning , no top chop , probably rolled pans front and rear extended tail fins , some 53 Buick styled headlights with droopy lids for starters.....will see what happens.....crap I just discovered that the engine block parts are missing from the kit....[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What are you hiding under the hood of the 41 "farm" truck.....the rear tires don't appear to be the standard gripper mud lugs that the old trucks usually had on them........some good looking models 41coupe

    Thanks RudeStude, I would love to do the 6 in my 55 like that, but it is just to original to touch.

  26. Back late this week with some cars. I seem to have developed '39-'40 Ford fetish recently. These are some ebay built ups I recently acquired. All are scheduled for rework except for the grey and copper sedan delivery. First one into the stripper will be the red coupe which has a (not really that bad)brush paint job.
