1 On the Hole and 4 On the Floor
I'm definitely going to change the name of this build. Nothing is striking me at the moment. I am wide open to suggestions / ideas!
So, part one of this kit bash is done. The lifted monster '50 Chevy pick up is ready for part 2!
Enter, 'Huey's Hut Rod', a Hawk model kit in the Weird oHs series from back in the day. I didn't have this one in my collection as a kid, so I'm stoked now to build it and 'bash' it together with the '50 Chev. One of the most fun parts about these models was the advertising they did for the kits. Here's an ad from a magazine in the '60s....

It went together pretty simply. Then I wanted an aged look to the wood and shingles, so I got together some of my best friends, and we turned it into a reclaimed wood look with a bit of fungus and algae build up on the wood shake shingles.

And then I grabbed a couple of Rustoleum spray cans, a small brush, and a couple of tubes of acrylic paint and went to work on the 'advanced aging process'.

One last thing was to see how it looked as the 'topper' to my lifted '50 Chev....
