I finished it up to-day.

Given the magnitude of this car, rodding it would never happen in real life but that's the beauty of playing 'what if' in styrene.

I channeled the front of the body, turned the 'turtle deck' upside down as it fitted better that way, (LOL) fitted the big wheels, shortened the radiator/grille, added the radiator/grille stays and scratched the steering drop arm, as the  kit parts were rubbish and gave it a pair of 'modern' rear lights. I also brought the exhaust out of the side, by utilising the 'over the axle' pipe.


All four wheels DO sit on the deck. It's the photo base that's warped. LOL















I also gave it a 'custom' interior with seats from the parts box. Don't ask what they are from 'cos I have NO idea.

What A beauty. Most unusual subject for a Hot Rod bu you pulled it off beautifully. I would put that one on the front of the shelf.

It's your imagination that's warped. I love it, & would never have thought of the idea, let alone build it.

Stuff the purists Sam. Actualy, when I bought it, it was with the intention of building it stock. The hot rod route was an eleventh hour decision. Now I'm on the lookout for another to build stock.
