These Hillbilly Hot Rods are great! I've got the plans and plan on doing some of them soon but I doubt they will come out as good. I have only recently been making these toy cars and I am beginning to really like it. I have always made plastic models and I am known in my area for putting flames on almost all my models. My scrollsaw skills need some honing but I think I'll get there. I have a picture of one of the Freaky Ford Hot Rods I have recently finished. I painted the flames on because what is a hot rod without flames? Anyway, just wanted to chime in for the first time. I think I'm going to like this forum.

Thanks for the compliment. I am not a painter so my models are unfinished. The flames are well done. I am sure you will enjoy this forum. We have a lot of very talented woodworkers. They are always willing to help. The Hot Rods was a fun project.

George, very well made Hot Rods.

I ordered the plans also to make those.

Flamepainter: are you willing to teach and explain here (preferable with (lots of) pictures) how you make those flames? 

I am airbrushing but only one colour items and then over "large"area's. Making flames add another dimension for sure.

Hot rods and flames! I am also developing the old patina look as well.

I also like to put flames on the hot rods. These were drawn free hand then hand painted.

Peter, I will attempt to put something together in the coming weeks to show how I do the flames. It isn't difficult just takes a little practice (like me using the scroll saw).

Granpa Bear, good job on those flames. I make my stencils then paint them with an airbrush. I will try to put together a tutorial soon for any that are interested.

About tutorials ..... I hope there comes a tutorial also for drilling axle holes. Even with a jig with which the axle is kept in a corner, the plateau of the drill perfectly horizontal and square to the bradpoint-bit, it (often) goes slightly sloped and ends up not being straight.

A few more finished (or almost finished) Hot Rods. Notice the chrome on the exhaust pipes and "hubcaps" on the orange one. Another technique carried over from my plastic model building experience.
