Found this “rat rod” monstrosity on craigslist, and the suspension design is, even to an amateur like me, absolutely terrifying.
The Lesney era Matchbox Ferrari Berlinetta from my HAWL was on the bench tonight intending to be just disassembled to go in the striiper.
My local flea market is closed for the season. Needing a fix, we went to one further away that I’ve had mixed results with. I found an interstingly random HAWL this time.
Yes, really. This was fun to make.
I built this out of the scraps from my extended cab Datsun 620 and a wagon interior.
I built this post-apocalyptic Datsun scout car on my Twitch stream last night. I really like how it came out.
I’m having a Post-Apocalpyse built fest on Twitch tonight! I’ll be spending from 7-10 eastern time building a fleet of apocalyptic vehicles. Link is: http://twitch.tv/improbablegarage
The Worlds Most Overbuilt Paintbrush Holder joins The Worlds Most Overbuilt Paint Rack on the bench. Like the rack, I welded it up out of metal scraps.
I upfitted this MBX Grand Chrokee using the fender flares, wheels and spare from an MBX Jeep Gladiator pickup. Then I painted the wheels & spare dark copper so they would match.
Suggestions needed for 1/64 size waterslide decals. Especially ones with full printing inc white so i can use them on any color car. Looking for both off the shelf and custom printing (These cars are decaled with a random Gundam decal sheet)
Project Colony Ship handled the haul up to Boston and back for thanksgiving at a friend’s place with no issues. Even the 15 degree weather on the drive home didn’t phase it.
Today was a day for weird finds. At the local target, the only 50th anniversary cars were 6 Gulf livery Fairlanes, and this Big Deal ‘55 Gasser. Apparently I have stepped into an alternate dimension where this is the second-least wanted car in the series.
I stopped off at a local Walmart to see if the pegs had been stocked for Black Friday, and found this there. I was so excited for the tampos I didn’t realize until I got home that it was from 2009!
Bought new tires for the wagon as the fronts were dry rotted and the rears were flat spotted. Turns out my used tires from last fall (which looked fine) were borderline. These are no-name Chinese tires, but for $300 they will work until I decide what I’m finally doing. One of the Ranger/P71 hubcaps broke two tabs when…
Here are three of the HW ‘29 Ford Pickup. Two of which have been a bit reworked by Improbable Garage.
Some issues mean extra cleanup, but everything will be usable from this print. I’m impressed at the resolution as it is far better than the “demo” print the printer included.
For full 80s luxury, My 1987 Mercury Colony Park has separate ashtrays & cigarette lighters for both rear seat passengers.
My new 3d printer (monoprice delta mini) is chugging through its first successful test print. Just took 9 failed prints to get it configured right. Turns out the clear pla I’m using has a much higher melt temp than the default print setting.
Started work on some ‘29 Ford pickups on my Twitch stream tonight. Still have a lot to do, but i like where these are heading.
