New to the site. Not new to building models. Just a lil while ago I got into these 1/87 scale cars. Iv been building 1/25th-1/64th scale cars for over 20 yrs. so the 1/87 scale isn't no big deal. It's all the same thing. I'm going to do my best at posting only 1/87 scale cars, so hope you like them.

Here's a 1940 I kustomized. Its a Jordan Highway Miniatures model that I chopped the top in the front 4" and shaved the whole body down. Lowered the whole car to about 4" off the ground. Chrome motor rollin with no hood. Gloss black with green metelflake paint.
Nice Hot Rods! What kind of paints are you using to achieve the candy colors?
And, when you chop a top, are you actually adding in a piece, like they do on the real cars, because when the roof is lowered, the posts don't line up? At any rate, your customs and rods are looking really cool!

Thanks for the respons Al. The candy paint is dupli color chrome/testers candy apple red. The 32 chop is very easy. The 40 was harder. What I did was just cut the bottom of the A post 4". And from the back window, I pushed the roof foreword to where it fit right.

Here's a 1961 Imperial made by Revell. I shaved the whole body down, Painted it mettle flake green with candy green scallops, all over the car. Lowered it and put white walls on it. I'd love to outline the scallops in red or another color but would need to find a very thin pen.
