      I was cruising through another site and found this. Like the Deuce, the T has been done every whichway. Then, you see something like this and the T gets exciting again. We don't see many Model T builds here so thought I'd post the drawing.

      If we have any T fans out there, speak up and Don will set up a page on the Forum for you.

    That's something you don't see every day. There are a lot of good ideas in that pic.

    That looks like a 26' 27' T body. That is the style of T that I like the best.!

    Salt? Did someone mention salt? 200 mile an hour club? Now that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Dan and I talked about doing a belly tank a couple of years ago and got involved in other things.
    I'd like to do one kinda like the SoCal special but with an old DeSoto injected Hemi....modern build in retro style.
    Resin Re-working The T by nature needs to be relatively thick...way outta scale for a tanker shell. Vacuum forming was considered but lacks detail and is a bit flimsy.
    Any thoughts guys?

    Maybe some formers with attachment points for the frame could be glued into the tank halves before they’re cut out of the carrier sheet? Would that make it more rigid? Vac really does lack detail, almost not worth putting it into the molds as the detail tended to need to be scribed in anyways.

  6. Did some one say Belly Tanker?? In 1/8 in fiberglass?? How's about a Track T in Glass also.

    This is what its all about guys! We told you the new year was going to be exciting with some new bodies comming out and this is an early teaser. I've ordered the Track T and am going to try to build it along the lines of the drawing I posted earlier, and it will have one of Dan's Arduns. I'd like to see someone do the belly tank Bonneville style with one of Dan's blown flatheads. Here's a thought, build a trailer and haul it behind a Willys pickup, or better yet put it on a............OOPS! Don will tell you about that one.

    QUOTE QUOTE #8

  8. I am going to start on one when I get back from the Starbird show in Jan. I can't let the cat out of the bag yet but, it will have a new engine in it that NO ONE has yet! Also my push and or tow vehicle will be either the Model A truck or "Big Woodie" Thats the 32 Woddie I have been working and prototyping for the last 2 years! You guys might have seen a Resin Re-working The T copy of it on ebay resently. I gave someone one of my cowls and a set of plans and a CRUDE resin Re-working The T copy was made hardly any detail whatsoever. Mine is all Bass wood. I got lucky enough to meet a guy with a unretored 32 Woody and he let me crawl all over it and measure and photo every hanger hinge etc. So hang on for that one!

    No doubt about it, '08 is going to be a great year for Biggie Builders.
    Rich...please take lots of pics while you are at the Starbird show.

  11. I will take TONS of pics. Our model club here in Kansas City helps Darryl with his model show at his 1/1 Re-working The T show in Witchita Ks. Plus we put on the "Model Kemp spectacular" For Elden and Jerry Titus of the Kustom Kemps of America. And they have returned the favor by being special guests at or shows! What's kool guys is that most of our show car heros are still model builders!!! I had the honor of suprizing Darryl with a dead on recreation of the Big Deuce. Donna Starbird helped me with some old photos and she picked Darryls brain with out him knowing it and passed the info along to me so I could build it! Lots of little differences between the kit and the real car. I presented it to him at our show and it is now living at the Rod and Custom hall of fame in Afton Ok. So if any one would like to build a dead on B. Deuce let me know I would be happy to pass on any info you need. And if you want to build a correct Big T. Darryl let me crawl all over the clone in the musuem and I photographed everything.

    Good gravy!! You lucky guy. If you could get some info on the real Big Deuce and the Big T , it'll be a great addition to the site. It could be posted right into the gallery for reference. What an honor to have your model in the R&C hall of fame.

    Any chance we could get Mr. Starbird himself to join us here on the forum???? That would be awsome. I've seen him on the last episode of Monster car garage..... I believe that was him... and then again, I could be wrong.
    Be nice or else ~1~**

    I was up around Grand Lake Oklahoma 2 years ago, and I stopped by Afton, Ok at Starbird's museum. After walking through the museum I asked the lady at the front (Mrs. Starbird) if Darryl was around. She said "oh yeah! he's out in the shop, go on over and see him!" So i went over and chatted with him for awhile, nice guy. He was working on a 50 cad and a custom 57 eldorado broughm. I'm gonna look for the picture we took, and I'll post it here if I find it..
