I am pretty happy with the result. 

I'll finish by gluing on the top with Aleene's Tacky Glue. 

Thanks for following along. 

Regards, Dave L.

Without realizing it,

I have a new "Hobby Within A Hobby". 

:doh:

Regards, Dave L. 


P.S.  A quick check on eBay shows a lot of pumps for sale. 

Type in "1:25 1920s gas pump."

My last two projects posing for a builder's photo.

I really like the Liberty Classics 1922 Studebaker pickup,
and the 1928 Chevy pickup and van. 

These models are fun to adapt and change,
as they use the same castings for the fenders and pickup beds,
wheel axles and the loads are interchangeable.

The 1922 Studie has a different wheel than the Chevy's,

and I thought I would exchange them to see what they would look like.

Three screws will let you remove the wheels and axles,

two on the front, and the single screw for the rear axle.

Here the wheels are swapped. 

I like the effect,
but I wish the Studebaker's tires were a little bigger. 

I did try to exchange the tires, too,
but the wheels are a different diameter.

My friend Jon sent photos of his 1938 Oldsmobile. 

It started as a Presidential limousine convertible. 

He modified the length and added the top. 

Nicely done, Jon ! 

Regards, Dave L.

Until now, I only knew guys who cut the roof from coupes, or even sedans,

and sold those contraptions to unsuspecting people as convertibles... 


Anyway, this one is well done.

Thanks, Gerold.

I'll pass your compliment on to Jon.

He amazes me with the projects he undertakes.
