Hubley metal 32 Chevy
Posted by philo426 on Monday, July 16, 2018 1:00 PM

I got this kit in trade and decided to build it.The kit was missing the trunk lid so I thermoformed a new one out of plastic.I did not like the spare tire carriers molded into the front fenders,so I filled them I  with plastic and putty.

I did one metal body kit with plastic axles. You're way better off with metal axles. Can't wait to see this done.

Yes all of the front and rear suspension componets are metal!The Monogram metal kits have plastic chassis and axles that tend to bend under the weight of the metal body!

Mocked it up with smaller tires than stock.

The kit was missing the dashboard and steering column,so I Made the dash out of .80 styrene and the column from brass tubing.The column connects to the Tie rod and turns when the front wheels are moved left and right.
