  • Some "new" clunkers.

    I picked these up a model kit show. Paid a total of $4.00 for them. A old AMT 40 ford and MPC Triumph TR4. The wheel openings on the TR4 have been opened up quite a bit. We'll see what can be done with them as future projects.

    Nice finds! That TR4 might need some flares on those hogged out fenders.....could be an interesting hot rod in A Modified.....

          The old Ford is a favorite...but I had to smile when I read Chappy's reply. I was thinking the same "flare time" approach!

                  I think the flares idea may be the best way to make something out of the butchered TR-4. But be careful. We've all seen crazy huge flares on slot cars that make them look like they have mushrooms growing from the sides. I have seen some that clearly have flares that are a scale foot or more sticking out, and would never work in real life.

                    Very nice Denny! I agree Rob! Hey Denny, when you upload a picture, there will be a list of picture sizes. Hit full size and you will get a big picture instead. Just found that out on my own!

                            Just showing that the TR4 can be saved with flares.
                            But thank you.
