Hello again, seems like only a few days ago that I was writing up last year's build log. Time flies! But, I was determined to make the best of this rather trying year... Anyway, here are this years completed models, although a couple were shelf queens from yesteryear. First up, the Lift Here Models Piper PA-58 -- last of the Mustangs: For those interested, the build thread is HERE Next up, the first Great Blue Whale, the XA3D-1 conversion of the Hasegawa A3B: XA3D-1 Build Thread HER
Here's some pics of a Model-T chassis I've been working on for a few months. It was started from the AMT Double-T kit, with lots of brass, aluminum and styrene scratch built parts added. The front axle was modified for working steering with brass knuckles, tie rod and drag link. Steering column is an aluminum tube the the brass steering shaft inside, along with brass spark and throttle controls. The battery, muffler and running board bracing were also hand made as were many engine details. This will eventually be part of a Model-T tow truck.
