This is the Four Hill Billy Hot Rods. I built them in half scale as you can see by holding one in my hand.

They were a fun project but it took me a long time to get them done.

I used a lot of 1/8" baltic birch plywood and a little pine.

So, here they are.

Thanks for lookin’

Fantastic work and congratulations on 4 very "Hot" pieces lol.....
They look really great and I will look at downsizing the plans, as I have on the Mercedes plan.
What size wheels do they now run on please?

Thanks for all the kind words.

Frogbucket-
 I made my own wheels because I wanted the wheels to be mags. I saw them first used in Osni's 1931 Hot Rod Roadster (which was a great build!). The sizes are 1" for the front and 1-1/4" for the back. Any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.
