What can I say but....
Glad you liked them Bernd, seems like you are the only guy that likes rusty junk like me. Thanks very much , just for your pleasure I'll put up a little more rusty iron.
RATS I had a whole string going and hit some key wrong and EVERTHING VANISHED!!!
I'll start over.............. Here is a prototype --- I found it AFTER I built the Packard and this is a Buick ..... but thats close enough for the kind of girls I go with!
This is a hot wheels Packard -------BD ----(before Dremel)
OK --- How do you get a tear like that in diecast pot metal? Easy , the whole fender is baking tin and the door has a big gash cut clear out and the side covered with baking tin.
Raggedy top is tulle and cotton and tissue paper. The hood will soon find a NEW home on a Packard truck, bet you did not know they made any ? Well another hot wheels custom 40 pickup is about to realize what it's like to be an ugly duckling!
A little closer look at the roof.
Oh -- hoods gone and a motor showed up!
Timing gears------ from a bunch of watch parts I stole for about 6 bucks on E Bay -- I got little bits and chunks to last a zillion years, the 40 ford widow regulator is more of it , I even got some stuff small enough to put insude a pop rivet rear end like a ring gear!
A few more shots of the scratched motor .
Thats about it for the Packard , I am going to put glass in that is too dirty and nasty to see thru so I don't have to detail the interior. Hey when ya, gotta do over a hundred or so you have to be smart -------- wait --a SMART person would not -------- Like one cowboy said in the western remake of 7 samuri -- I forget the name they gave it that time around , talking about the young kid that was too stupid not to go home because to go on was certain death and , I think , Steve Mcqueen said 'Ya he ain't smart --like us!"
Hey------- has anybody figured out what the gizmo in the Hudson window is??
