Pictures of the final few days. I'm still not done and i got the kit with me to work just in case I get a few hours of calm.







As you can see I have now put my driver in to his cloak and the coffin has been lined with red mocket or whatever it is called.
The sign on the door is actually a picture I made in Paint and printed out. I cut the paper and clud it on with white glue. With a clear coat on top it dos'nt look to bad.

C'mon Atmobil! You still have a few hours in the hotel room before we go to the show! We've finished models like that for most of the shows we've attended.
Once, a model was finished during the drive down there, at night, in the light from the interior light in my VW! So don't give up just yet......

Well... The finish line is drawing near for this CBP. I haven't worked on mine for awhile now, I've got too many things going at once(and I keep starting new projects). I wanted to finish the '59 Caddy, but the Monogram kit won't be out until november(I think?), so that got put on hold. The Jo-han hearse is waiting to be wet sanded and polished, then finished(like I said, Too many projects!). The Vampire Van was going ok, until I decided the front end needed to changed, because the casket hood and sides on it are not realistic(in other words, if it was a real vehicle, it would overheat in a heartbeat), and I like trying to make my kits as realistic as possible. If anyone wants to, we can extend the DEADline for this CBP... if not, I want to thank each and everyone who participated in making this a success. I will post some pics one of these days(when I either figure out what is wrong with my camera, or break down and buy a digital camera). I look forward to any opinions about extension, or end. Thank you all for your contribution to this CBP! Marshall.

My To die For-d is back in blackCoolBig Smile But an extended deadline would be nice.
I was going too spend the last few weeks fixing it but got the message from the owner (last wednesday) of the place I'm renting a garage that I had too get out of there before 1. November since the "building" is to be demolishedShock This is my 1:1 scale project, the 1962 Mercedes 190Dc heckflosse. Not an easy task in 2 1/2 weeksCensored

But hopefully I can soon sit down and work a bit on the To dire For-d and the Booze mobileSmile

hello all, i've started work on the '59 again,
i might get it finished before february 12th, a model car show,
and there is more as well, i was thinking of something else to do,
and it hit me like a hammer,
i have the jo-han haulin hearse with only the roof intact,
and the jo-han 64 cadillac, so what to do?!
i'm not sure, but this might be another hearse build.

I didn't need that much time, but I'll take it. I should have the one I am working on now done. Plus one I am doing to match a friend's car and all the leftovers will be used for a junker. ***, that's alot of hearses to build. Cool

Here is a website you guys can use for reference for your american hearse builds. http://www.phantomcoaches.org/saleslit.html

Glad to see you're back Flathead, we missed ya! How was your break from the modelling world? As you can see, I extended the dead line for this CBP, because we all needed some extra time, Myself included.

Atmobile, I can't wait to see what else you plan to do!

Hearseman, as the old saying goes... The more, the burye... I mean the merrier!

Sounds good Flathead! I know what you mean about getting a break from modeling evry now and again. I went back to building my pro street '66 Cadillac hearse, and now it's up on four wheels. I have a 454 Chevy in it, but I'm not sure what kit it came from. The engine had been sitting in my parts box for about 7 years now. I'll have to scratch build the valve covers for it, and repaint it, but it's perfect for the Caddy. I polished the paint out on one body, but I may use the other body, after i wet sand it and give it a few more coats of black. The casket that came with the Jo-Han kit, won't fit in the back of this car, because of the tubs, which were cut off the '67 chevelle prostreet kit. Then I need to find a whole lot of bare metal foil to do the trim on this thing. I'll let you know how it's going soon.

that sounds really cool!
you wouldn't wanna sell the casket to me or?
it would be perfect for one of my hearses,
otherwise i'll just make one from scratch.

I'd like to have someone make resin copies of it. I've got seven hearse kits, but only one casket. If you, or someone you know can make copies of it, I'd be happy to give you a few. But other than that, it's the only one I have.

ok. i was thinking of that as well. how many pieces is it?
  • Member since

Seven total pieces: A two piece lid( I cut it in two so I could hinge the lids), the bottom, two side handles, and two end handles. The bottom isn't very detailed, it's a reqtanglular box, with no curves, but the lids are shaped exactly like a real casket.

oh ok. well, you should try this, since most of the parts (lid) are pretty small right?
and since a casket inside a car wouldn't be very well seen,
bad mold quality shouldn't be a big problem.
http://models.magietec.com/howto/resin3/index.html
but the box itself is one piece right? that couldn't be done,
but, making a box from scratch shouldn't be a big problem either.

oh yeah, and instead of play-doh you should use that clay
that you can put in an oven to harden.

I'll have to give it a try Flathead. Thank you for the link. If I can find the clay you're talking about, I could probably get enough to make it deep enogh to make the base of the casket. All I would have to do is invert it to make it hollow. I'll let you know when I get the materials together, and then I'll experiment with it.

If you need sheet plastic to cover the back windows Emillion, I can make you a couple. I made some for Ben Stone, and he said that he really liked them. Let me know because I made a pattern for them... as a matter of fact, I've coverted 3 Ghostbuster cars so far.
