i'm getting my ecto-1 next weekend! i can finally start my project!
and, atmobil, forgot to tell you, for the method of soaking paper in glue,
you'll need regular white writing paper, or magazine paper.
i have found magazine paper to work the best.

Ok, thanks for the tip. I was thinking of trying with paper from my printer. But maybe that will not work as well? At the moment I'm to busy to sit down and build...but maybe next week...hehe

Hey, CK, good to have 'ya back!

Now that means I really gotta start working on the Ecto again - albeit with high temps and humidity here again, I'm afraid my paintwork may be delayed.....

I know what you mean evan, the humidity here is getting horrible! I haven't been able to paint anything for several weeks. I found a can of paint that I had forgotten about, and painted one of my Jo-Han 66's. It's a Midnight blue mettalic made by Duplicolor. the paint came out excellent, and I need to polish it next. Hopefully I'll have pics of my (ha ha) builds soon. Looking forward to your Ecto updates!

i don't know really but, if you decide to try the paper from the printer,
i'd recommend using slower drying glue than superglue,
i'd say...white glue, yes. the kind you use for gluing windows and headlight bezels
in place. otherwise, magazine paper works great. it's not as stiff as regular paper.

if i can get somebody to resin copy my landau bars,
then i can go on with my 66 caddy hearse as well.
but the 59 is top prority. its my holy grail of model cars.
my all time favourite car.

anybody got any landau bars to spare? maybe resin ones?

as for colors, i was thinking gloss black,
with maroon red interior. flock the floor and do the side
panels in button tucked velour. and plain velour for the roof.

Sounds like your car is going to be a hell of a rideClownEvil
I am still working on my litlle to die for-d but do'nt rally have so much time to spare at the moment.
Still trying to figure out a good way to get the logo on to the side of the front doors and backdoor. Decalpaper would be a good thing but I have no idea where to find some...

I have finnally got some time to spend on my hearse, now with just 3 weeks to go before the show in Drammen I still have to paint the body, finnish the casket and finnishing of the thing in a good way.
Strange that to build something like this you need to be almost dead or else you (atleast I) don't have the time for it.Clown

Good luck at the show At! Let us know how you did. I haven't been able to do much on mine.... Hand injury. I polished the hood on the Jo-Han hearse with toothpaste, but I need to get some regular polish. Come back soon Flathead... We'll miss you!

This years theme class is "Lowriders", so I think that "Light Commercial" would be the natural class for your "Creepy Cruizer".... I've got a lowrider in the works, will show you guys after the show....Wink
Hopefully I'll get a sneak preview of Atmobil's creation at our club meeting next monday.....Big Smile

O.K. Here's the idea... Build a hearse, any hearse, any way you want to. It could be compleatly stock, customized, a salvage yard wreck, a dragracer, Nascar, or a lowrider. And how does Oct. 31st as the end date sound? I've got 2 hearses under construction at this moment, a '59 pro street, and a Jo-Han I recently dug up(Pun intended). so let's get buried in this, and try not to make any grave mistakes!

That was funny, but be careful or they'll send you to the pen for PUNishment... ;)

Ok, bstone requested these to be re-posted so i'll post them in here although i am not participating in the build.

Remember the movie Pet Cemetary?
Well, obviously that film was the motivation for this build, lol.

The Mini-Hearse...........

Enjoy!
