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.

I am wildly impressed! You list scratchbuilding as one of your specialties. You did yourself proud with this project. Excellent finish on the paint job. Thanks for sharing your skills with us.

This is a really super piece of modeling. Please do consider getting it to the Nats, so we can see it in person.

Thanks to you both for the great compliments.

 

I do hope to have this at in Loveland if the money holds out and work permits a few days off. Colorado is within striking distance of the KC area.

​What a GREAT job on this build Thomas! I didn't see it at the NATS in Colorado. If you had it there and I missed it...I will be really disappointed. I think this build would've done well there. Thank you for sharing here on the Forum.

Love to know the details on the boom & other extras on the rear. Looks period perfect!
