Finished: 32 Ford Coupe
Posted 04 September 2006 - 07:14 PM
This is the first model I've ever built specifically for a contest theme. The NNL Nationals has a Merc/Duece reunion next month, and the TNMCC and NNL East both have 32 Ford themes. So, I set plans into motion and built this over the days of August 22nd-August 31st.
Overall, I am not completly happy with it, but it's a fun, simple kit that was a perfect fix for the workbenchless blues; the kit was built entirely on my bed and floor.
The hardest part was the grill. I had to drybrush it 7 times to get it to look the way I wanted it too. I also found the suspension to be too fragile, it broke several times.
Unfortunatly, it does not photograph very well, the metallic black is very hard to photograph, my Johan 70 0lds presented the same problem.
It moves into #1 in my All My Models album on my Fotki. The builds are in there in chronological order, and it is older then the 34 Ford Pickup I built in 2000. The album now has 465 photos, the largest model album I have.
Thanks for looking!
I was trying to get a shot of the dashboard here. It's MML brush silver, with a red Sharpie providing the gauge faces.
