    075.JPG 071.JPG My Grandson was over for the day and wanted to build a hot rod. So a quick freehand sketch on some foam board some vintage steelies and some welding (hot glue gun) we started a model A coupe like Papaws. On the next visit it will get some parts and maybe a paint job.

    That is a great photograph. I can tell you in about 50 years that young boy, now a grown mature man who will be designing space ships for Mars, will pull that photo out of a box and say "Ah! here it is.......My first car....Way back in 2017....."
     
  7. I have a question for the math folks.
    I'm starting a full size project, welding up my own vintage front engined dragster. I would like to approximate the scratch built 1/8 chassis I built from the Lindberg kit. I'm hoping to use my model for dimensions.
    How do I convert the measurements to full scale? Do I multiply? My math skills were never good.

  11. Didn't spend a lot of time on it. 1/8 is kind of intimidating, you want to add as much detail as you can, but I don't have the talent for it.

    I built this AMT '62 Electra 225 to look (sort of) how it might have looked in '62 when I was 12. My friends and I built models that rolled and could be played with. I left the chrome inserts out of the portholes, and foiled only the door handles and rocker moldings. I wish AMT (Round Two) would put out more kits like this...one piece interior tubs, one piece chassis plates without working
    suspensions and steel axles & wheels that roll freely.

    It's not exactly car related but maybe it's a memory of that special spot... the one you used to drive all the way out to with her next to you, in your pride and joy.... and when you got there, the two of you would just sit in that old swinging chair and feel like the only two people in the world...........

    Well...to me it's just a romantic notion and poetic licence... maybe somewhere in the world there's a cherry blossom and a swinging chair. If you find it, share a photo

    Haven't built a kit in a few years, but here is a few I did a few years back. 12899668_10206894654458815_987643305_n.jpg 12900178_10206894642458515_1419402611_n.jpg 12884488_10206894655658845_1658014916_n.jpg
     

  23. Thanks K-B... I shall keep you fully posted. I have some progress to report, “Spy Photo” of the mating of the pieces, post section...
    B_Rough_Assy_01.jpg


    The tape removed , body prior to filling, filing and sanding...

    B_Rough_Assy_02.jpg

    B_Rough_Assy_03.jpg

    Some slime and filth from the tape and my fingers.

    B_Rough_Assy_04.jpg

    Hood came out nice and clean but needs some filler material.

    B_Rough_Assy_06.jpg
     
  24. Next I tackled the lower fenders and mocked up a few rear skirt options.

    Fir the front fenders, I used the ‘already contoured’ elements on the running boards. I also used the outer edge of the runners fir a lower body contour with a rolled edge. The body cuts of so sharp and looks too narrow without something to balance the shape with the bottom edge of the fenders. I considered just cutting the fenders but the 1:1 car’s look to be stock so I gave this a try.

    B_Rough_Assy_07.jpg

    B_Rough_Assy_08.jpg

    Next, the skirts. I first looked at the covers that came with the AMT ’36 Ford but those are spoken for on another build. I also wanted them to have a slight bulge like the 1:1 car. My first solution, cut some ‘tear drops’ from a set of deuce fenders. (ouch!)
    B_Rough_Assy_09.jpg

    B_Rough_Assy_010.jpg

    In place, these tear drops are just too small and do’t fit the contours, plus, much of my source material shows a lot of cars song a different loot that seem to match the 1:1 car’s. You can see the rolled rockers in place. This also holds the channeled frame snuggly in place. I have a lot of work to do to properly fit he roof and match the windshield. I will likely narrow the door posts and lean the screen back a bit more.

    B_Rough_Assy_011.jpg

    B_Rough_Assy_012.jpg

    With that in mind, I searched for something that would make the job easier. two spare roofs from other AMT kits came to mind and, after creating a template, I marked up the custom potions from the Studebaker Champion and the ’65 GTO. Being a pontiac guy... the GTO won out.

    B_Rough_Assy_013.jpg

    Look closely, you can see that the GTO roof has a bit more contour to it, it also is thinner towards the front of the roof and nice and thick near the rear window. That was helpful for contouring and sanding...

    B_Rough_Assy_014.jpg
     
  25. Last two for now... a lot of sanding sculpting and contouring as well as a mock up of the fender skirts. More on that later.
