1934 Ford Pickup scrap rod
Posted by kerc on Wednesday, January 05, 2011 2:01 PM
So there was I, trying to get back into modeling, with a few spare parts and a couple unfinished projects...And then I decided to start kitbashing away...And this came up. It's a '34 Lindberg, chopped 3 scale inches and opened doors, with a shortened and tubbed bed, sitting on top of a Revell Phantom Vickie chassis, and then all weathered and made to look like junk.

 Good work, been sat here on the forum for a while, staring at a pile of half finished kits - this has given me the 'push' to finish the V8 1/12th Bentley 'rat rod'

@Pseudolithos: That's just the coolest thing...Knowing that my build has motivated another modeler to get started again! Please keep us posted--that sounds like an awesome build!

 Cheers Kerc, just ran through a load of cobwebs, tripped over an idea, found the rusty chassis, a severely chopped body, a supercharged V8 with six pots and some wire wheels, blew away a bit more dust and found the camera so I'll try and post some WIPs here soon, thanks again for the inspiration !

Real nice. I like it a lot.

  I really like this build Kerc.

  Very cool. I've always loved this kit. I had a few from back when it was still an AMT.

  I would like to see some more pics of the interior and chassis if you can find the time.

  Thanks, Earl Yes
