Wow, it's been over a year since I posted here! Yikes!
So...the parts stash I recently acquired had a bunch of Blue Streak slicks, and some pinwall Polyglass GTs. Also, several sets of Cragar-style mags and '65 Pontiac custom front and rear custom panels. It also came with a Revell '56 pickup frame gluebomb.
I had a roof-less '67 GTX sitting around, so I decided to drop it onto the F100 frame, with a Studebaker chopped roof and glass unit perched on the body to see how it looked...pretty neat!
I cut up the photo in Photoshop to shorten the GTX body and sketch a rough impression of how it could look.
If the roof proves to be too low, I also sliced the stock roof off of the Studebaker in a moment of madness, so it could always use that.
In the tradition of ignoring this page for a year at a time...here's a sketch of a wacky idea I had recently.
Valiant grille on a '49 Ford, with canted Corvette bumpers defining deep fender coves, and Corvette hood bumps/license plate holder to match.
A more conventional take on this unusual design would be to keep the fender coves and 'vette bumperettes, but switch to frenched dual headlight pods or canted quads, with a horizontal '60 buick grille from the AMT parts pack.
This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!
RodBurNeR: omg condensing years of model supply, tools and paints into one three drawer cabinet is tough! just the common use stuff, rest will be in boxes in a closet unless needed. this is rough lol

krassandbernie: You guys missing the other posts I've made in the 'resin' section? I see a couple of you have spotted the Fordor sedan builds by customers I posted; but missed the others.

superflekmoonbird: Thanks Paul...they look good. Air temp may be part of it...for comparison some rattle cans (Tamiya) mention 50 degree F and above, Testors Lacquer says 70 degrees..
