aarrgh - really? boo. I had someone else take a look right after I posted and they could see them.

Can someone else confirm they can/cannot see them. I may need a different host. I have them in my 'myspaces': http://dukkpond.spaces.msn.com/Default.aspx *edited*

That should link to MySpace - look in the Deora photo album.

Pics came out great Dukk! I never thought about using the Deora as a hearse. Great idea. It's looking good so far, keep us posted!

I can see them on page 24. He took two Deora kits, and made a stretch hearse out of them, and used two camper tops for the back..... He also narrowed the rear part of the frame, to make it pro street.

Wow! That is nuts, pretty cool though. I would chop the top down a bit too even though it'll be more work on top of what you've already done. That's going to be a great model when it's done, keep it up.Approve

Thanks for the encouragement. As the first model I have built in at least 16 years it is fun so far.

Yeah that top... I'm going to go about the rest of the build and ponder if I really want that much more work to chop it...

Hello again!

Been a long time since I posted anything on here, been summer and great weather, so havent really had the time to to anything! But, I`ll be starting up again in a month or two. Just bought myself a Heavenly Hearse kit, so I`m ready to make yet another 'last ride'.

Cheers

On the bench (cos I see people put that in here!):

Minor Update
Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, July 27, 2006 1:08 PM
Alrighty - got a little more work done on that top.. I decided chopping it was just not my bag so it's full height. Of course the openings have to go so I can put in some sweet casket viewing windows of my own.

Here is the passenger side (sorry about the blurred pics, it got dark in my 'photo area' and I think the camera slowed the shutter down)

First I had to fill the gaps left by the door openings so I have a continuous beltline:


Then cut out the side (again sorry for the Dead pics)


Fill it with sheet styrene and layout the window:


And finally cut the window out:


In the last two you can make out a dark line at the back end - that is where I intend to cut to make the back a flip up door like a minivan.

Nice work Dukk, this a really interesting and unusual project you've got going on. I like the reshaping of the side window's you've done there. I've been taking a break from all the scratch building on my 58 Flower car and messing around doing some easy stuff on my other kit's, but I have managed to get some work done on my 59 Superior just recently. I'll try and get some photo's up in the next day or two. Evil

Thank you, and that sounds great! The fab work you have done on the Flower car is what dragged me back into modelling. hm, I think you owe me a bunch of money.. Big Smile

Figured out that I can't hold the camera so close to the object - farther back with zoom works better...

Better pic of the passenger window:

Cool, glad to hear I've inspired someone to build. Lookin so far good Dukk.

This is just a mock up of what I've been fooling round with lately. It's a Flintstone 59 Superior body with the chassis, interior, rear bumper and tailfin's from the Polar lights Ghostbusters Ecto1 kit. I didn't like the front of the resin body and it was curbside so I cut the front off a Monogram 59 Eldo and transplanted it. The front quarters on the resin body were warped so they got switched too.

Now I've got an engine bay and an opening hood, I might get some different rim's and tire's for it though.

That is awesome Erase! I will definitly be watching this one! I like the lowrider look it has.

I've been keeping an eye on yours too Dukk. It's coming along nicely. I can't wait to see the next installment! yours will definitly be one for the books! Great work guy's!

I've been kinda out of modeling for a little bit.... Kinda burnt out for awhile, but I'll be back....

Thanks Cali kid. Hope to see some more stuff from you in the future, your custom merc's looking wicked.

This is the modified interior next to the stock interior of the AMT version, I'm cutting all the Ghostbusters stuff out and converting it from a Miller Meteor combo to a Superior three way. After that I'll probably modify it some more.

Thanks Erase. I should have something going again soon. Your interior is looking good so far. I thought about using both interiors from the two '59 Cadillac Eldorado kits I have, to see if it would be possible to mate them together, and then scratch build the rest of the interior for the custom '59 I've been working on. Have a good one!

Well... my 1:1 hearse is coming along just fine...

Unfortunately that means my 1:24 Deora hearse is being neglected :( In my defence, I have been thinking a lot on how to make that dumb top fit the cab better and I think I have a workable solution.

Hopefully some updates by the end of the week :)

Cool, I look foward to seeing it. Good luck with your 1:1 hearse and your Deora.

BTW the shot up hearse I posted is the one from T2. Evil

Alright a little more progress on the top.. That gap on each side has had me thinking for a while.. Especially since the top cannot be permanently affixed prior to paint..
Couple of prep shots here..





And with some filler. I use Evercoat's FiberTech - it's an excellent 2part filler that has fibers in it for strength and sands like butter.

Passenger side sanded:


Driver side sanded:


And separated. You can see the reason for the tape, so it came back apart! Big Smile


Since these I added some Evercoat Rage Gold as a spot filler and also to fill in that nasty ribbed roof. Pics soon.

It's really starting to take shape. Cool technique with the masking tape, I've never used that filler before.

I've gone back to working on the 58, reworking the chassis and suspension. I cut , extended , drilled and hinged the driveshaft today and have been detailing the body. Wink

The dead have risen Erase! Actually, I'm taking some time off from modeling because of burnout.... I had too many projects going, and I have to get away from them for awhile. I'll talk at you later. Marshall.
