MessageSujet: The Dentist Showrod aka Toothache !   Dim 12 Nov - 16:02

Today I started a new Showrod build using the AMT Digger Cuda as a basis:



However, that kit will mostly donate some frame-parts , front axle and engine. The rest will be "my wild imagination" along with bits and pieces from everywhere.....

I cut off the rear portion of the frame, then widened the rest of the frame:



Front axle got some extra width as well:



And here's where it's going now.....

Thanks, the "skull tires" were cut out from motorcycle handlebar grips! I bought them at "wish.com" for a few bucks.

Thanks, yes the old Tom Daniel design has always inspired my work when it comes to showrods. And in my collection I have most of the TD kits that've been issued over the years.

I don't always build them box stock as I like to add a few personal touches. I also love building "showrods" of my own design using other "non showrod kits" as a basis for my own crazy stuff such as these:

Just like you, I collect & build Tom Daniel's models (but I always try to respect the box art myself, even the colour).

And yes, the Traction is incredible, I love the row of exhaust headers & the clear blue german helmet (as spring wrote) aplause
The Mini & VW Beetle are your model-versions of old Matchbox designs, aren't they ?




Even the licence plate of the Mini is correct surpris
