They look great, I really like the stance of the 57. Have you done that to a 55 yet.

bobd..........thanks, I am working on the suspension for the Orange 55....it will not be as high as i am trying to build the model and then do my 55 1:1 car to match so it will not be as outrageous as the Nomad. The 55 is on a miniature rotisserie I crafted to support the body



Here is another project I did from a 55 pickup.......rusted and made into welding trailer











Just a few others that I am in the middle of ....getting a functional straight axle with spindles out of metal is a challenge doing it in miniature.....i will probably get back to these this winter when it is freezing outside.

Wow!! You do fantastic work! I love the attention to detail.

My dad was part owner of a hobby shop back in the 70's, so models are near and dear to my heart.

You do some very nice work. A lot of attention to detail and also with the stuff all around the models.

Did you build all the parts that don't come on the model, or do you buy them. I'm talking about things like the tool box and the welding tanks and gauges.

If this trucks tires weren't so shiny, I think most people couldn't tell if this was a real photo.



Also that rotisserie is fantastic idea.

Some of the things I made, ie wood pallets, the suspensions and towing frame on the trailer are also made from metal stock as well as the rotisserie, welding tanks, tools, etc are available in kits , I just rusted them for the look, I had old rusted wheels on the trailer but i wanted to present an image of using the trailer so a good set of socks and shoes were added. Thanks for all the compliments , this was my first attempt at rusting and the junk yard look , once started it will get your imagination going and it becomes a passion just like the real cars.. This winter I hope to build an old weathered barn and display some "barn finds" . It is a lot of fun when the weather is too bad outside. Just a couple tips....the fenderwell headers are from electrical romex wire with stainless brake ferrels for the flairs, easy to bend for different gasser fronts, leaf springs can be made from black wire ties or the stainless strips from old windshield blades, I use whatever i can find in the old drawers, rivets, springs from old pens etc. A blue magic marker will tint the headers for a heated look on chrome too. The ideas are limitless, just let your imagination go and have fun. I just turned 58 and my family thinks i am losing it but I did this stuff when i was a kid and that's how the whole car passion started for me......it is just another expression of the hobby i tell em'. It is safe, clean fun but can be addictive! I really should be concentrating on the real cars but.........the modeling actually gives you ideas for the real deal.
