Full color, detail photos of all 17 of my Roadster Pickup HotRod many do you remember?
Posted by Tim Boyd on Tuesday, June 04, 2019 8:45 AM

I recently finished a project where I compiled high-res digital images of all 17 of my Hot Rod Roadster Pickup models from the last five decades or so.  The album at the link has over 200 photos, starting with a single image of each of the 17 cars along with a paragraph describing the project and when/where it previously appeared in print (if applicable).  Then follows anywhere from 4 to 14 or so detail images of each of the models, with closeups of the interiors, engines, suspensions, et al.  

Those of you who have read Scale Auto over my four decades of contributions there will recognize some of these models, as will those of you who read my "Modeler's Corner" monthly column in Street Rodder magazine from 1978-1995.  But I'm almost certain that a few of these will even be new to everyone who checks out the album at this link.

Starting below, and in a few follow-up posts immediately following this one, I'll show some of the models that are featured at the album.

Thanks for looking, and I'll be watching to see if any of you have questions or comments regarding any of the models.    

Best Regards.....TIM

How about a few of my Fad T Roadster Pickups at the album.... 

....and a Model A Roadster Pickup built in the mid 1980's, years before the "nostalgic/traditional" style of hot rod building returned to broad popularity in the 1/1 and 1/25th scale worlds.....

What a spectacular array, Tim. The styles, colors and variety really cover the spectrum. So much for box-stock when so many variations are possible. Thanks for bringing these back into focus for our enjoyment! Cool

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work and talents and encouraging us to continue to enjoy this wonderful hobby we enjoy so much.

It was fun to go to your link of all these models and scroll through to see each one as it was featured. Very nice.

Such beautiful work and such fabulous colors Thumbs Up. You deserve to be proud of them.

There are several trucks I remember, like your yellow track-nose gracing the cover of a late 90's issue of SAE, and your Chevy pickup to name a couple which you posted in this forum 5 or so years back. Your Chevy is what motivated me to start working on a closed cab version of this pickup, a version I am still working on. I think after looking at yours again, I'll have to get mine out and begin the next phase of the build.


Always a pleasure looking over these old builds of yours.

Thanks for posting them.

Chuck, Dave, and Marc: Thanks guys for your reactions to the photo album post.  Very, very appreciated!  

And Marc, as a model car author for 40+ years now, there can be no higher compliment than being told one of those articles inspired you to dig out some styrene, pound that plastic, and have some great model building fun!  

Best to all of you....TIM

Thanx for showing all these, Tim, they show such variety in imagination, design and colours, I have rolled thru your link 4 times already.  Hard to pick a favourite, but I think you topped it with the first two in your second post, the brown? and bronze? A Model, as well as the following turquoise? or teal? Model T.  Those colours are unexpected in rods but look so right.  Cheers.

Hi Tim,

i do remember almost all of them as I have admird your work from the first time I saw your Track Roadster in the very early '8os Scale Auto Enthusiast magazine.

I wanted to thank you for the picture of the "Owl "T". I do have the Street Rodders Corner article but the pictures are so small that I can't really make out how you cut the cowls. I guess I'll just have to do it and make it 'work'.
