Slowly's Round-Up

Post by slowlylearning on Thu Jan 15, 2009 8:36 am

Making one big thread for all my builds, makes it a bit esier...

Heres the latest...

Joint build with Ray... 76 Caprice, Iv done the ride height, paint-job, engine wires...



53 Belair... wont be building anytime soon, dont know what to do with it, suggestions very welcome!



32 Ford Sedan... best rod Iv got my grubby mits on... wite-striped the tyres, using the wire-wheels, going very traditional, going out for paint tomorro morning, so get your votes in! Will most likely get a schmikko paint job since its my first rod besides that dead one i did a while back... That engine is a Dodge one i was test fitting, but ill most likely use the kit-supplie Mustang donk.



This is a Handa Prelude, front wheels drive... but not for lon, will be pinching a random ricer engine from god-knows-where (anyone? Very Happy) Them wheels are the Supra ones, who else thinks they are too big? The kit is 1:25 its just a tiny car Rolling Eyes



This is a Toyota Celsior.. Yeah I know TWO ricerish cars! Im thinking of doing a stealth drift Car, since its curbside I dont have to do an engine, just a ricer cannon exhaust Rolling Eyes Maybe a 3 tone paintjob on this one, but keep it looking relatively stock :? Not entirely sure as of yet Laughing

Heres the latest, its a POOH (pulled out of hat) build for another forum, the subject is 50's Drag, but I'm cheating a bit Very Happy

Have almost finished the engine, just need to fix up those rocker covers that say PONTIAC... Would love some ref piccies or info on those diagonal-sitting carbys... I brushed tamiya 'smoke' all over this sucker, dunno why, just makes it look gritty and used I spose. Still madly sanding away at those tyres to get rid of that insightly mould line. Havent touched the body yet, will be trying somethng new with the paint, will get a regular colour then ill mask off a stripey down the side and use a scrunched up ball of foil to press a pattern into the tacky paint then sand it all down smooth, wish me luck! I'll need it.
