for hoppers, i use the bottom of a AMT 63/64. for hoppers i like keeping it old school.
yeah, i was thinking about that too. like the 63 jevries did :thumbsup:
but since i havent done one yet i was thinking that maybe a HH kit would be my best bet to kind of get the hang of it. :dunno: thanks for the input :thumbsup:

i always use HH chassis, making a custom chassis seems like it would break
as long as the Car is like the Caddy or any of the Impalas, won't fit other cars like the 70 Monte. I guess you could cut it to fit, reinforce it with brass or steel

i always make 'em from styrene, or modify the originals. the HH chassis work good for the models that they fit. the only probably i have with them is the u-bars floppin around, i usually end up make axle guides from styrene. ~JO$H~

I think the Monogram 53 Bel Air in 1/24 might fit because Lindberg made that bomb dancer a while back, and lindberg uses the same chassis for all their hoppers/dancers

black and white is ok, but I would go with something else with lime, maybe a darker green flaked top
