The goal was to see how many flatbeds would fit on an MBX Flatbed King. Right?
Built this ‘19 Silverado Trail Boss into a slammed pavement scraper. Don’t usually modify modern trucks, but this one called to me.
Turns out the HW ‘53 Chevy Custom makes a pretty good Gasser.
Before I lose my resolve and buy it. I’m not even a big Z fan, but the $800 price tag makes it hard to resist.
How does one end up with this much of a step van? And if you do, why not just finish the scrapping job at that point?
Parked by this homemade widebody bug sporting vintage Camaro wheels. I can’t hate it.
Ran across this a bit back and forgot to post it up here. Looking to trade this away as i don’t collect chases. My want list is here:
Yesterday was the third of my Jurassic Park twitch streams. I was able to finish all the jeeps and Mercedes! Next up is the Explorers, and the RV. Though the RV is looking like a bigger project than expected.
The olive drab Foden Breakdown Tractor has been patiently waiting in the junkyard diorama to be useful. Today it gave up its intact boom and 1 tire to put another Foden back on the road. As a reward it got a proper rusting & detailing.
The rear window on Project Colony Ship has not worked, and has been leaking past the gasket since I got the car. Recent attempts on my part to fix the wayback mechanism have been to no avail. But because I have been back there I noticed how wet the carpet in the wayback footwell had gotten, so I pulled it and the jute…
Another twitch stream’s worth of progress on the Jurassic Park vehicles. The jeeps are done except a few minor touchups(and figuring out how to reletter an 18 as a 29). Got some work done on the mercedes pickup. And sawed an RV in half.
I previously built Jeep 10 and detailed Explorer 5. Now I’m doing pretty much all the rest of them.
Turns out these are the only two Porsches in my collection. A ratty speedster and a racing 914.
The generous Doctor Suarez sent me this hearse for the cost of shipping. So now it is on display with its bretheren.
Had an amazing hunting day at my local flea market. All of this was $7! All but the two racing champions imports will be custom fodder or wheel donors. The racing champions will be added to the pile of them I have found and will trade away, as I like finding them but sorta don’t know what to do with them except steal…
These Torque Thrust wheels, on the Project Colony Ship wagon? They are 14x7 wheels, which is similar to the stock size for the wagon. Better shot of type of wheel with center cap on below too.
For people who leave cars on their dioramas, do you have issues with the rubber tires lifting the paint? If not what kind of diorama materials and paints do you use?
I Just did a quick wheelswap & detailing on the Art Car Focus RS. The artcar tampos look pretty good with some realistic wheels.
My requested cars (and bonus skyline!) Showed up today. Thanks Frosted!
I was so excited to find a DCP truck for $5 i failed to notice it was 1:50 scale and not 1:64 until I’d paid and walked away.
