Hi, I'm kind of new here, but here is my projects.

The Hebster52 is based on the remains of a 1952 split, and will be a replica of the Hebmüller number One.

Yes I know there are people out there yelling and screaming, OMG, he's cut up a split!!! But if you look at the start picture I think there is not that many of you that would even have thought about using anything of it.

This is how far the project is so far:

Have not desided yet wether it will become a T-82E or a Volksrod.... Twisted Evil
Like this:

or this???

I probably go for the T-82E Rolling Eyes

Man, you have got some mad Photoshop skills...that would be a sweet Heb knock-off! Very Happy And judging by the condition of the candidate, I'd say go for it! Meanwhile, I'll play with lowering my die-cast metal models. Wink

I like to play with the real thing... Very Happy

Yes, I know I'm not the only one making a Heb replica, but not many of the replicas are registered as autentic manufactory year for the Hebs...(-49 - 53)

My Hebster52 will be as previously mentioned registered as a 1952 Heb replica when finished. Rolling Eyes

And I'm making the body exactly as the real thing, but the mechanicals will be made my own way. Wink

Widened stock 16" wheels to fit 205/55 in the rear and 195/45 in the front. Slammed front beam, and so on.... Twisted Evil

Thanks for asking.
Not much change yet... Crying or Very sad Have not had time to clean up the garage to make some room for some work yet. Rolling Eyes

I have plans to get started on the Hebster in a couple of month. I have collected more parts during the time the Hebster have been put away, so I have as much parts home already to make the progress even faster as soon as I get started on her.

I've also found some parts for the T-82E project. Wink

I'll keep you updated as soon as I get started again Very Happy

Tosi hyvän näköinen!! Näyttää olevansa kovaa työtä. Mutta kun katsoo mista sinä olet aloittannut niin näkee että sinä osaat ja että tästä projektista tulee hyvää tulosta!!

On erittäin mielenkiintoista nähdä miten se onnistuu!

Terveisin
