There is a '40 Ford Sedan Delivery kit.
Wahhhh....if I don't get want I want, I quit.
Lifes tuff kid!!
Long roof sounds good. My head's spinning with ideas.
How about the Dan Fink 32 woody phantom? 39 chevy delivery (Monogram). The S'cool bus, 39 chevy woody-AMT, 46-48 Chevy delivery, Galaxy Models I believe. There's a few out there. Amt's Ranchero would be an easy conversion to a 2 door wagon.
Gee, this is gonna be a tough one! Stevie, damn right ) I am in the closet right now - preparing that awesome build *s*
Hmmm, maybe parts of that wooden closet will fit into the kit.... real wood is a killer )
I might even get a chance to join in on this one.
'33 Willys panel Gasser. Kit comes with a blown SOHC 427 Ford.
So ... when does the build-off officially begin and when does it end?
It starts Monday, May 4 and ends three months from that date.
All right! Time to go clear a space and figure out what to build!
i got the paddy wagon and a 55 nomad being turned into a panel....can i build those if the longroof one wins?
Ok--I got excited to do a long-roof build now,so I went out and dug out some wagons / deliveries / stuff kinda like long roofs in my stash of models.Help me decide what to build--
I am going to do my best to complete a model for this..... How long do we usually have to build one? Good thing is, if it is a "long roof" that is chosen, I started one about 5 years ago, now will be a good chance to actually finish it.....I have 100's of kits, only one built (which so happens to be a delivery), only a handful started, the rest just sitting there for whenever.
A couple more--
Nice collection willie
Is that 49/50 ford panel a jimmy flintstone body? Ive been eyeing that one in his catolog. Hows the quality and resin thickness?
I hav afew of his bodies..coarse they all vary in quality, so it is why I ask.
My head is also filled with silliness.
Now here's the conundrum, a sedan delivery as stated will qualify as a 'long roof' so considering that prior to the 1935 model year Ford Sedan deliveries shared the basis body structure with the regular sedan, that is they both used the same roof, does a pre 1935 Ford sedan body qualify for this contest?
Well, the one I am planning is definitely pre-1935, but it is also far from a sedan body.
fat fendered 40's
And the wagons have it.
Build starts Monday Morning.
Longroof is the focus.
You like customs, build a custom Longroof.
Like Gassers, Give that wagon a nosebleed.
Follow the builds on the plastic model forum.
Gee, this will be nice! It's time to sort out about 100 ideas and make a good one )
how long do we have to build it? When is the deadline?
You have three months from Monday to complete the worlds most awesome scale Longroof.
where's the model car forum? i guess im new enough that i dont know...lol
can we use model a sedans?
Here's some of my Longroof builds to inspire you!!
...if I get the time I will try and wack together a '61 Falcon for the build off!
Okay gang...It has to have doors or a tailgate at the rear.
Nice examples Macca.
I think I would like to join in this build. Are we posting before/progress pics anywhere to prove we aren't submitting a previously built kit?
Time to raid the junk yard(box) and start thrashing. I haven't built a model in over 10 years.
Join us on the plastic model forum.
Started this a while back so it doesn't qualify but it can serve as further inspiration...
(sorry 'bout the poor quality of the pics.)
