    Junior Tot Rod, model A coupe !!

    A year or so back i thought it time to build a new tot rod for my lad .... one that would be more of a small rod rather than just a body on a chassis
    It had to be some thing new ... so so it came down to a model A coupe or a 41 willys ... the A won
    Now as the smaller A body i need is not an off the shelf item i would have to make it myself !, Im not a body work man !! but needs must, & as it was to be a project that if you dont build it your self you could'nt afford to have it built !

    This was the first mock up



    Which became this



    This was the start of the plug to make a mould to make the body i needed

    As you know there is loads more to come mark !! & i've not forgot the dimensions for you!

    The first mock up was adjusted a bit .. made wider & the front & rear ends adjusted a touch

    The body had to look like a model A & have all the swage lines too








    some swage lines are made from the beading that B & Q sell others had to be hand made, its way too much body work !! but as the primer went on the plug starts taking shape !
