Hi Ace. Welcome to the forum. You've done some very nice work there. I like the way you've weathered up the models. Keep the pictures coming. 1thumbup1

Thanks man I appreciate it, Everything was painted by me down too the wheels tires and hubs.I probably have between 30-50 hours in each car, just depends on what one it is. I also think its funny that reddevildemo had the same idea as me "1/6 revell 427".

Great work on all of those, You scored an awesome price on the one you sold on eBay, helps pay for the hobby. LOL

The Revel engines work out nice on these, decent price for something getting hacked up to fit.

If anyone is interested I a brand new 36 Ford that I just pulled out of the box. I will customize it to your specifications and so it will be safe I will through it on ebay. I just want to give some buddy the chance to get it the way they want it. If interested send me a pm.

Here is an update on the Chevy I decided to make the engine sit lower and use the hood. I ended up losing my wire looms and that's what is stoping me from finishing the car. I have a cover that will go around the engine so it will look like it came out of the box with the engine in it.

Which wire looms do you need? I have a couple of these engines in parts and may have what you need.

Thanks, I left the original frame because of the air bag suspention. Here is a few pictures of what the frame looks like out of the ford. It has the same frame just different interior piece.

Here is a video of them in action. I also have posted a few pictures of a few I have done lately. What do you guys think of the tattooed pinup? I am actually getting an article wrote up on me and these r/c cars in Car Kulture Deluxe/Ol Skool Rodz.
