Big Kevins customs

I have been working on some projects .I am not doing any bodies for sale right now .Just playing with some projects and finishing some past stuff too!
I will do a few WILD customs only for the Autofest
First one


Semi Truck And a two car trailer .Both Truck and trailer powered by T-jet style chassis for extra power .Pin hole and metal plates on trailer to hold pins and traction magnets from the two slot cars on he back.

Here is the donor body .I took this photo from ebey as I did not take any pictures of mine till after I started chopping ,cutting and reforming.

See new pictures below

Alright M.W.G.

Glad to hear your feeling good. That will be a beauty! I like the scale of the truck too. Doesn't dwarf the tjets. Keep on keep'in on. :thumbsup:

Thanx I like the look now too.I cut the top off the trailer and trimed almost a 1/8 off the bottom too.The rig was to tall so off came the roof .getting the new roof ready to install . these mods made the scale look much better.I also filled the wheel wells with skirts to give it a more art deco look.

here is the start to another project for the fest .
The body is one of my resins (sorry none for sale) it uses a hot wheels metrorail for a donor for the glass,plastic chrome bumpers scoops and headers .This will run a custom brass tube chassis with a inline lifelife motor.this should be a light weight package. details to come.

A dead Hot wheels and a dead lifelike gave up their parts for a real frank-n-metro monster. Afx style rims .I will have to tub the rear to get the tires up under the body.

How about some creative use of super glue and quick set .I place tape over the top of the truck sprayed some fast set on the inside of the tape .Glued over that and quickly sprayed more fast set .instance roof. I will be putting on some super clay over that to add a nice curve to the roof. Also better picture of the chop top 33 willys delivery.
