Tom Daniels Red Baron Hot Rod
This is the Famous Tom Daniels Red Baron Hot Rod. She was based off a 1923 Ford T-Bucket with a WWII aircraft engine.
About this creation
The Red Baron became Tomís second design and is probably one of the best selling model car kits in history of Monogram. Released in January 1968 with a bonus added to the kit: a miniature Fokker Triplane Model. For a short time, Mattel owned Monogram, and the Red Baron Hot Wheels car was included in the kit. By 1973, the kit had sold over 2,000,000 copies. The "Big Red Baroní model kit produced in January 1969 in 1/12 scale was another product released because of the popularity from the first model kit. This kit included the same miniature Fokker Triplane and a small skull wearing a German spiked helmet.

Then, that Bob Larivee of Promotions, Inc., approached Monogram with a proposal to build a full size Red Baron Roadster. With Monograms blessings the car was then built by Chuck Miller of Styline Custom in Michigan. The car cost $10,000.00 to build at the time and features a stock 1968 Pontiac OHC 6-cylinder engine and a Pontiac automatic transmission. The car won The Oakland Roadster Sweepstakes that year. Two other Red Barons have been built by Jay Orburg since then.

Alright, so check out my version of the RED BARON HOT ROD and Give me some feed back if you would.

























This is the original Tom Daniels car created by Chuck Miller.

Hey bud you did a great job in capturing the styling on the roadster!!! The only thing I would suggests since you asked for pointers, would be the curves on the top part of the helmet. I did my first tron bike and it was not pretty. It had a major lack of curves in it. If you can just work on that on your next Moc you sir will be king of the castle. But anyways I really like this roadster it is sweet, wouldn't mind it on my shelf. Keep up the good work and hope to see more from you. Later... Come on by my site and support my Cuusoo project if you haven't all ready. It's the Tron Light Cycle. There is a link to it on my home page. Thanks

Also Thanx to everyone who commented and gave the feed back that they did. That means a lot to us guys who don't get as much build time as we'd like.

Quoting Ape Fight You've taken your building up a notch with this! An excellent replica of an insane looking Rod, and it's not an easy one to recreate either. The detail and classic techniques are superb - 5 stars and watch out for the next Rot Of The Moment in the Rod Club : )
Thanx Ape, I worked really hard on this one and fast too. I had the goal of finishing it for the contest and just made the pictures in time. For 30 days of design and building its not to shabby.
