for instance, you could keep the engine and that 1:25-24,
and scratchbuild the hearse body. just look:
front body and front suspension from the ed roth outlaw:

the front light from the ed roth mysterion...this thing has lots of ed roth cars parts!!!

get some fat slicks, maybe a bigger scale, scratchbuild the hearse body,
get two hemi's, bigger scale, scratchbuild the grille, and it would work from there.

Bugsy, that ambulance is incredible! I don't know if I'll be able to join this one as I'd hoped, as work has gotten busy on me. I still might try to get my butt in gear and start building.

Well... so far I've gotten 3 Jo-Han hearse bodys painted. The first one was for a prostreet hearse. the second was for a box stock hearse. I had it painted up in black, but when I attached the rear bumper, the tops of the fins on the body sloped down, and didn't match the tops of the tailights. So I opened up a sealed Jo-Han hearse, and painted the body. This time I painted it a midnight blue metallic. I've got the front suspension built on it(it's posable), and the rear tires on it, and I'm using the original Hurst 5 spoke wheels. Everything is molded in on the chassis, but since I decided to build it box stock, I'm just going to detail it. I've got the engine painted for it, but had to cut a mounting pin off of it. The pin made it so the distributor was in front, which is incorrect. I'm going to polish the body in a couple of weeks, and then I'm going to foil it. It'll probably take a whole sheet of foil to do this thing!Laugh LOTS OF CHROME TRIM!!! Meanwhile I'll get the interior built, and finish the engine. One of these days I'll get some photos of it(if I ever figure out how to post them). I'll let you know how it's going later on.

Cool

I am still trying to figure out how to fix a proper looking cloak for my Grim Reaper. He is now able to be seated in the car and looks really good like that but he needs a cloak!
I have tried with silk, and some other fabrics but they all make him look like he is a small kid in a big mans cloak.
Someone got any tips for how I can make a cloak that will will look nice?
I'm going to post pics of the litle guy soon.

Hmm...maybe that could work, thanks for the adviceSmile
Custom hearse: check out the "hearse" topic in the "did they ever make" section.
I think you could use almost any model for a hearse build. I'm using a '37 Ford panel delivery.

Some update photos on the to die for-d

Body and interiour tub test monted on chassis for pictures, upper body is not finnished for painting yet, only had one coat of primer. Radiator is not gleud in place either.

The driver is sitting in his seat

From the left side, you can clearly see a scratch that has to be removed before painting

From the ride side, some dents and scratches under the side window has to be taken care of before painting.

Some close ups of the driver, his feet are not long enough to step on the pedals but that will not show with the body on.

His head and shoulders, the shoulders where narrowed in to look better and the head slightly tilted. Eyes, nose and mouth carefully painted in matt black.


You can also see alot of fine dust collecting in the tub, that happens when I leave the kit standing in my own room for 2 weeks without touching itSmile

Well, I don't have any pix with me at the moment, but I think I'll join in on this CBP.

I'm converting the PL Ecto-1 into a 'surf woody', of sorts. I'm naming it "Ecto Cooler" - if Hi-C drinks can forgive me....

It'll be Tamiya Candy Green Metallic, with contrasting flames, Tamiya Park Green/ white interior, and woodgrain down the fins.

I'm also throwing some MCG photo-etch parts on, some 'dubs', and, of course, a surfboard.

I'll get some pix up tonight.

ahaBig Smile
And what is it? What is the new screenname? And why banned in the first place?
The questions are many but is any one willing to answer.
The To die For-d is coming along. I'm building the 4thShock coffin at the moment. The 3 earlier versions never looked good enough. Pictures are coming up in the near future...
