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.
