'33 Rod

Post by 70cudatj on Mon 09 Mar 2015, 10:40 am

Well life's been slowing me down a lot lately, some things going on that have virtually put the brakes on building, but over the past 6 months I've started this build.
It's another glue bomb that I got at a swap meet. Wasn't too badly bombed but after getting the black paint off you get to see the flaws of the Revell kit. The roof/turret being separate from the body was the first issue I dealt with and it was a crap fit too.
I've reworked the belt lines, shaved the door hinges and I've cut down a resin grille so that it'll be a cross between a channelled and sectioned body. Meaning the body will sit lower in-between the fenders.
The Plan:
Paint - Ummm, not yet fully sure on the colour, but probably a metallic red ... maybe?
Wheels - Pegasus
Running gear - Ardun head side valve Ford V8 from the '50 Ford pickup kit.
Suspension - Trying to graft something modern into it, maybe from an old Viper kit?
Interior - Maybe steal the interior from that Viper kit too and shoehorn it in.

It's all a bit vague still, I'm just not in the groove at the moment, this one's gonna take a while, but it'll get there eventually.




Cheers TJ

Them wheels look good on it mate, and a Viper interior would fit nicely, maybe even the door linings too.
