62 Rolls

Post by dv8v8 on Tue 13 Aug 2013, 10:31 pm

this is my next project, rekon that minicraft were a bit optimistic calling this one a kit, its more like a toy and its not very well done either, it also has some puzzling items: 5 wheels, 6 tyres and 4 axles! the body work needs quite a bit of attention and the bonnet is supposed to open like a butterfly however to facilitate this theres a huge V where the join goes, cured this by glueing the bonnet shut and filling the hole, this also hides the one piece engine! this is what i have done so far

Gasser...
 
...or ute or tow truck.
Panel van?  I can visualise one in Australia Post livery...
...or a camper?  Use the AMT El Camino camper body.
Or stock but painted like John Lennon's car
