Chase's Garage 1:64

I have been collecting the Hot Wheels Falcons since they first came out, I have at least one of every color ever made (except an ultra rare toy show lime green with flames). my earliest BoB conversion was rushed and flawed.
Image
Recently I have taken the time to change the wheels to something more correct, correct the front nose/bumper support, and put a better blower through the bonnet (instead of sitting on top). The wrong angle of the roof spoiler will just have to do.
Image
I'm sure I'll fix something else on it. Now if I can just try to paint the bat wings on the red car.

Recently Greenlight has released a 1:64 1972 Ford F100 which I am already working on for the Cobra truck.

Hell this is easy compared to the 1:160 I also work with :D Good magnification and fine scale tools really help.
I've been working on a MM1 BoB and the lower front air damn details in another modeling thread is really a big help.
Image
I'm almost obligated to do the MM2 full nose version but I think I may try the black bad guy car first.
The truck has been started. Cutting the roof off of a brand new collectable seemed wrong at first, but I got over that quickly.
Image
Need to convert it to RHD and some lift under it, and for the life of me I'm having the toughest time sourcing plastic for the windscreen. Maybe I'll find something green this St. Pats day...

Nice 8-) And don't worry, I butcher collectables all the time for wheel swaps :lol:

The Snake Truck is on point... well minus the boat windshield but I'm sure you'll get that detail too:) Maybe some plastic from a bottle could work? Too thin? At least it's flexible

That is a most excellent suggestion. I don't know why that never occurred to me. Thank you.
