Toothache aka The Dentist Showrod
Posted by chromecop on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 10:52 AM

This was originally meant to be my contibution in the Coffin Corner2 "Name contest". Neeless to say I didn't make the deadline, but finished my model about 1 month late. The name given to me was "The dentist showrod". I later re-named it "Toothache". As You can see most parts are different dental objects incorporated in th build along with a widened frame and the engine from AMT's Digger 'Cuda showrod/funny car. I mounted an extra blower to the engine and took the wheels from my parts bin (The rear tires are pieces cut from a bicycle handle having skull pattern). The drivers seat was all scratchbuilt along with numerous other parts! The taillights are supposed to look like human teeth !

Let me be the first to say this ride is unreal … and super cool! A wonderful, fascinating combination of creativity and fun … and that’s what model building should be all about. Thanks for posting and sharing your imagination and fine workmanship. Far out show rods rock!

This is a very imaginative and really well built model Thumbs Up. I love it. Too bad the response was so negligeble. Probably because it wasn't a '55 chevy or '32 ford

No wonder this site is dying too right behind MCM. If people don't support this hobby and this forum it will continue to go away and those responsible won't have a clue why.

This thing put a smile on my face.  Lovs the wheelie bars.

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

CRAZY!  But in a good way.  That's a very imaginative build, and well put together too.  Your interpretation of wheelie bars and rollers fit your build perfectly.  Cheers

That's one way to display Grandpa's old dentures. Thumbs Up

I like to work just as much as I don't.

This thing is great.  Very well done.  Super whimsical and creative.  I especially like how the skeleton has the Simon Cowell bleach job.  Big Smile

Just keep picking away at it...
