Those cars look great from what I can see a little bit blurry though ...
Whats the story on that red truck? Is that how the kit came or did you do some heavy customizing on it? Im just getting into this, I'd like to try a chop in the future. I cant afford to buy thousands of kits and mix the parts like I've seen people do on the HAMB.
Your dad seems to do a lotta toying with model cars?
Matt, go for the translucent red paint, make a white carson top out of cloth for it, paint the firewall white and the interior as well. If you cant make the Torq Thrust's work how bout some painted steelies with Caddy flipper hubcaps covering them on wide white wall tires?

What kind of airbrush? I saw some small ones in walmart that are propelled with what seems to be like a spray bomb, I spose filled with some kind of gas or air? I did the truck in aumotive touch up paint you get in the little spray cans and it came out allright, 'cept that it needs a clear coat to really pop. It's a metallic patriot blue but the metallics didnt really show. Ended up being like a semi-gloss blue.

The red truck is actually orange with metallic silver sprayed over it all from a paint can by my dad,and it was super heavy customizing,it was originally a 50 Chevy pick up truck my dad designed it,and the bed was cut at a slope,and an extra 55 stude baker top was glued on top of it,the front end of it was made from some junk parts out of the 63 ford millenium kit.

I did the building and most usually do but I ALWAYS got to him for designs and stuff like that he does work alot with model cars everything there that was his is totally plumed and wired u cant see it in the pics but they are.

Hang on a sec here i have some more of the truck there ill put them up

Great builds, good looking models!

I build a few myself, but only have one rod- a '36 Chevy coupe that ain't too much to look at. I may tear it down and detail it some more (is a model every TRULY finished?), seeing some of the work here.

Most of what I build is military and civilian aircraft, and armor. May have to start building cars again.

As a military brat growing up through the 50s and 60s around Marine bases from Hawaii to N.C., I had a footlocker full of models. When we moved the summer of my Freshman year of High School, my dad made the decision that it was time I grew up and stopped "playing with cars", unknown to me, and tossed the whole batch.....I still get pissed about it when I recall the event. I started my daughter with Models when she was growing up, but haven't built any myself for many years. I have about a dozen unassembled ones in the shop, with instructions that if I ever get a head injury or am in a coma, that they are to be brought to me for "Re-orientation". If that doesn't happen, they will probably be passed on to my grandkids...or maybe assembled with them.

I'm a little late but I wanted to show off my favorite model. It is a Chrysler 300 C. It is chopped channeled and the frame is Z'd. I never got around to finishing it.

Have made many, many over the years. Here are some of the more interesting ones. Will do this in two posts 'cause Jon limits number of pictures per post.

My first custom model built circa '1962 using one of those horrid Revell metal flake kits.


'33 willys gasser built about 1965. This was before there were any plastic kits of this car so I carved the body out of a pine block and made a plaster mold of that. Then I laid up a fiberglass shell. Frame is balsa wood, engine and rear wheels are Monogram Sizzler and car is built using the method of the Yont's brothers who won all those Revell National Model Car Contest championships with brass 00-90 nuts and bolts holding everything together.


AMT '42 Willys gasser built pretty much box stock. Won Revell contest 1964?


My stable of Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild entries from 1963 - 1967. Never won anything but really enjoyed making the cars. Am in the process of restoration, the light blue one is finished, winged primer gray one is in progress. All carved in wood.


HO scale '33 Willys entered in Auto World mail in contest. Wire broke on motor lead so didn't run on their track. Was disqualified. Body is fiberglass mane like the 1/24th scale one above, frame is chrome plated brass, front wheels steer.


A '39 Willys I pieced together a few years ago from various kits. Body is assembled from several coupe and pickup kits.
