Slowly's 'not getting burnt-out Model T'

Post by slowlylearning on Tue 16 Apr 2013, 7:28 am

The vans giving me the poopies, still trying to get the front end 'right'. So I pulled this out and just started hacking at it... The inspiration is a scratch-built trike/chopper I saw on the MCM forum a while ago... Going for a deco-steampunky look, its TINY compared to the van, which is just what I need I rekon.

Itd look cool with a pair of fats on the back, no doubt, but I really wanna use these wheels for something aye Razz

Here's my start on the engine (from a 36 Ford coupe)... It was the wierdest distributer I have EVER seen, Iv seen the crab/scallop type ones, but never this sort, its like a dome on each side of the front-end of the engine :S







You can really get a sense of scale when theres an engine in it, that and the markings on my cutting mat Razz Has anyone else done this kit and used the Lincoln V8 that it comes with? Its horrible! It would have been such a nice setup if it werent so... bad.

Thanks Shoey, now all I can see is a wheelbarrow when I look at it Razz Might as well roll with it I suppose Razz

ta cuda Very Happy

Z'd up front gotta chop it up a bit more and still gotta work out what sorta suspension Im gunna go with there, thinking elliptical (sp?), was suggested to me on another forum.

stance is a little off I just noticed on this mockup, I really need to do something so the body mounts the same way each time

Finished a bunch of tafe work so I allotted myself a little time to make a mess at the bench. Rescued this thing from under a pile of random desk-mess and did a bit of a mockup. Then got straight back to tafe work :/ Hoping to have the time to do little bits and pieces on this one. Still undecided on the front grill situation. Maybe a tractor-style or track nose?







(Anyone else having trouble with Photobucket only loading thier mobile version of the website? I don't usually use it, because the interface is ridiculous but it looks like Servimg wants me to make an account now. Which I won't be doing. I already get enough junk emails Razz)

Tractor grille.  I've never been a fan of the track nose.

You're very conscientious about work & play.  Worryingly so...

Those tractor grilles are very nice, well some of em. I saw a tutorial on how to make one with some pickup rear fenders... which I dont have Razz

Im only doing so much tafe work because tafe rearranged this semesters modules. My group has to do double what the continuing students did in thier first semester. But our second semester is going to be a breeze, hopefully.

I spent most of my time as a student finding ways to avoid doing the work and then going to the pub...

Funny you should say that, just across the road from my tafe campus there used to be a huge pub, but they knocked it down and put the most evil of things there... a GYM!

Im not sure, I see people go in and come out sweaty and puffed out, so I'm guessing it some sort of wierd sex club :/

I had a go at making some dainty spoked wheels, Im going for a steam punkish look with em'. Im open to ideas. Ill be using the stock front tyres and I think ill have to make some bigger thicker rear ones.

Pic-at-ures











Not really the style I was going for, but I went with it, really rough etc. but yeah I think Ill make another couple different designs. This ones a bit to race-ish.
