Twinmill III Transport 600.00 SOLD
This was the 1st Place winner in the yearly Battle Royal contest at chilliesdiecastcorner.com. Mostly an aluminum build.
5 Day Sledster for Custom Crew owned by Custom Crew
I was contacted by Bosco at Custom Crew and asked to put my spin on a Sledster. They wanted to display it at the 2009 Super Convention. He told me I had 2 weeks and I said sure! Neither of us took into account the mail time so by the time it arrived I only had about 6 days! I made this in 5 days and Fed Exed it out to the guys at Custom Crew in Las vegas........................whewwwwwwwwww
Jolly Rancher 60.00
CHERRY MOCHA 170.00 SOLD
Scary Tours 125.00 SOLD
This one has been kicking around in my head for a long time. I started with and old English Bus casting and cut about 60% out of the lower level. Numerous other mods were done to accommodate a big blown V-8.
Good rides on top......evil.............lower level!
Scream Soda 225.00 SOLD
Bare Nekkid 55 170.00 SOLD
This is a 1st place winner in an unpainted contest. This was my first build using my new lathe and milling machine. The only plastic parts on this car are the wheels, seat, and carbs. All aluminum baby!
Scary Otto 89.00 SOLD
My take on Hot Wheels new Custom Otto. At time of picture this still needed a blower scoop and some other detailing.
Hare Mail 145.00 SOLD
How do you make a mail truck cool? Well, that is what I tried to do here. I took a regular old Hot Wheels mail truck and put a wicked pitch to the roof, stuffed it full of blown turbo power, and now its ready to deliver your tax return faster than you can say audit!
Go postal in this wicked ride!
Skulldozer 300.00 SOLD
Buses, buses, buses, everybody wants buses. So I took a Hot Wheels Drag Bus and converted it into an earth mover from hell. A ton of scratch building went into this and way too many hours to think about. I thought it came out cool and fit nicely into my Kommercial Series theme.
Another pic this time with its top on.
Persimmon 100.00 SOLD
Green Chili 200.00 SOLD
179.00 ON HOLD
VW/Aerobus 179.00 SOLD
Again, buses, buses, buses, they want buses. Here is what started out as a Drag Bus. I scratch built the chassis and gave it a futuristic look and stance. One of my favorite pieces I just love this one.
Here is the guts!
SixtyToo 200.00 SOLD
This piece was commissioned by a customer who likes this casting so I gave her the old Scary treatment!
A shot of the inner guts and scratch built chassis. These pics were taken before final completion. Hope ya like Chris!
Belch's Grape Transport SOLD
Retro Drag Bus 125.00 SOLD
Drag Bat $89.00 SOLD
DAIRY FOR A FRIEND SOLD
Rat Bomb 150.00 SOLD
This is my twist on a rear loading Beach Bomb. I stuffed our good friend Rat Fink in a rear loader and off to catch a wave he goes!
Half-N-Half Bus 200.00 SOLD
This was just a quickie. I had a naked bus casting laying around and whipped up this. Rusted on one side and clean on the other!
Nice and purty..........
Citrus Krate 125.00 SOLD
Lime Time 225.00 SOLD
This started out as a Jada dairy which I converted to this little truck. Complete with a lime shifter knob this little baby is "Tart from the start".
Nothing like a nice rear...............
Tinpalla 169.00 SOLD
This is a very early build. I do not usually get rid of or trade my customs unless I need cash for supplies but a good friend of mine Juan aka Jarden kept asking me for one. After awhile how could I refuse? I asked Juan what he liked and he told me Impallas. Well, this is what came out of my warped mind.........TINPALLA!
Juan liked the first one so I did another. I hope he is still enjoying these early kreations!
Snakebus 300.00 SOLD
I guess a while ago somebody made up these castings of an extended VW Bus (I think it was LB Customs). Well, awhile after the fact I chased one down and did this with it.
Here is a shot of the innards.........
Penal Panel 100.00 SOLD
This is my take on a Paddy Wagon. I started with a Jada coupe of some sort and this is the result.
Plum Taffy 125.00 SOLD
This was made out of one of the black box 100% Hot Wheels coupes. I modified it drastically and gave it a long, low, and lean stance hence the name taffy. It looks cool but I don't know if I would want to chew it.
This was another attempt at an aged patina. This was a Hot Wheels set truck that I converted to a pick-up. It has a scratch built chassis and a big old Allison mill. This one will get you to the junk yard in a hurry and pull a continent.
Back Door Plumbing SOLD
Here is an early build I made for a contest. The person having the contest sent out the cars he wanted you to kustomize and he wanted cars to display in his junkyard diorama. I got this old Playart brand modified dirt racer. It was a horrible casting so I discarded the chassis and carved up the body. I completely built a new tube frame chassis for it. This was my first attempt at aging or distressing a piece. I though it came out pretty cool but I didn't win. In fairness, I sent my entry in late. Oh well on to the next build.
Back Door Plumbing
And...................here is the guts!
Rat Fuel 150.00 SOLD
Here I took a Boneshaker cab and scratch built the rest. This is one of my first attempts at building a "Rat Rod".
Witchdoctor 55 125.00 SOLD
Here I took a 55 and chopped the top. This piece was sort of an experiment in combining airbrush with decals to kreate an effect.
No name Bus SOLD
No name Bus SOLD
Buses, we love buses so here is another. This was a Drag Bus that I tried my first True-Fire painting style on. I always try and be a bit different with my designs and I think I was successful with this. LOL
VW for Ken SOLD
Another older build. A friend I met on one of the forums named Ken asked me to do a VW for him and we all know how much I like VW's! Anyhow, he sent me some castings to pick thru and this is what I came up with. Hope ya still like it Ken!
