Ooh man! Digging these neat Old School Hot Rods Big Time! Great stuff & fun to see.
I also see a red pickup with an Iron Cross on the doors in the background. I too have messed around with that body and come up with the same hole in the box right behind the cab. Try making some Goop from some used & abused red plastic AFX bodies with Testors liquid cement to carefully fill it in.
Thanks for the tip Bob, I've never tried that b4. Wonder if I can make it work.
The Willys got me started with styrene. I cut off the hood and made a firewall and a fan shroud, then inserted a motor.
The Aurora Hot Rods posted earlier were my second shot with styrene. I built firewalls for the ones with missing hoods/grilles.
Then came "Number 1" (posted earlier). I wasn't pleased with it so I gave it to a buddy while I worked on "Number 2". I saw him a week later and asked for it back. I missed it for sentimental reasons I guess.
Also in this post, the A100 which I think it looks more like the "Mystery Machine" and it's companion the A100 Pickup.
I was happy to see AW release the "S'Cool Bus". I had to make it a short bus for a T-Jet chassis.
Last but not least is another shot of the Tijuana Taxi. As far as I'm concerned, it's finished. I don't want to get too detail-ly. I'm gonna run it.
I like that econoline van and pick up!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup: I've been trying toying around with the whole resin casting idea, and really want to cast that body style. Sadly, I have no casting supplies, and the only master I've found is too big. It would have to be shrunk first, and that stuff is even farther away from my capabilities than the casting is. You've got to have a steady hand and a good eye to make styrene work as well as you do. I'm lacking both the skills and the patience. Nice work!
Slotto, I can see you've been at this for a while!!! It takes a time for all this creativity. I like the way you think..."build your own". :thumbsup::thumbsup:
I can see some very interesting builds in your pics!!! You hit a soft spot with Sltman and those vans...Tex, you see those wings in the last pic??? RM
