Jairus, It's a pleasure to finally make your aquaintance! I am fairly new to this forum but, I'd like to say that I've been a fan of your work for many, many years! You're artwork has inspired me since day one, continues to do so and I thank you for that!

Thanks for the heads up on the '30 touring kit. I was comptemplating converting the '32 Phaeton body I have to a '29 but you just took care of that for me! It looks like Revell has reissued the '30 touring and there are several of the original Monograms on eBay. I've got a '29 cowl, so that's covered... I love Flatheads so all I'll have to do is raid my parts bins to assemble the proper engine. I'm pretty sure I can pull the frame out of a Revell '32 5-window or 3-window. Are those '41 Lincoln wheels on the '29 Phaeton? I'm still trying to nail those down...

Chris,
The wheels represent those Revell sent me. In other words I tried my best to draw what would be in the blistercard. That said... I tried to also make them look as close to real cars as possible... but the wheels seem to be close to '39-'40 Ford with '48 Caps. Of course Mercury wheels were the same but with different caps. All the wheels in that series of images were the same and the only two engine options were the Caddy and Flathead. The flathead had three carbs with chrome aircleaners and the caddy had six carbs with airscoops.

If Dave used all the images in this build off there are still 6 more; another '29 Phaeton, two '29 roadsters, a '32 five window coupe and two '25 T's!

This one....

That '34 I already started years ago but never finished... (well duh!) :lol:

As for the '32 five window coupe, if anyone gets this one it is simply the "American Graffiti" Milner coupe with different wheels. A SUPER EASY build if you have the kit!

:lol: I got mine ;) Phantom Mustang Ranchero. Yesterday and by 10:00 lastnight I had '68 Mustang GT in hand and I've spent the WHOLE day cutting it and a '64 Falcon Ranchero up for parts. Shaving, fileing, filling, puttying, cussing, and hehehe!!! this is a GREAT way to build... Should I do this... check pic... nope! Just follow the picture DUMMY! Just find the parts ya need and follow the pic!! :D Love it.

Thanks again, Dave, Jairus. This is awsome. :lol:

I must have been on a '29 kick when I selected the drawings for the Challenge. As I didn't pick either the '32 5 Window Coupe or the '25 T's. The other '29 is still in play as we haven't gotten down to where it is in the stack. But this is what it looks like:

There are a couple of '32s still in the stack but I believe they are from an earlier series, as one is labeled 1932 Calendar Roadster and the other one is the Boattailed '32.

Hey Fletch, can there be multiple entries of the same car? because I have a 30 touring, and I really like the 29 touring on page 1. If there is another touring of that year let me know....

No Sir, it is not, it was one that I didn't have in my collection or was on your webpage. But, that doesn't mean it can't be added. We're getting c;oser to the end of the stack everyday. I have no problem expanding the Challenge to include additional subject matter.

Ahhhhh , I am touched! Though some would say not in the good way... :blink:

Thank you but I'm just a poor slob trying to make his way in this world like everyone else. Not to mention finding the time to build!
I have managed to gather all the bits and actually got a mockup going. I don't like the front tires, thinking they are too small for the illustration. But... rake and stance being everything to me will prob. keep! Getting close to time to start my own thread. :blink:
I suggest we all start our own threads and use some sort of acronym to identify the challenge entries. I suggest the type of car followed by TJWAC. Like "1929 Roadster - TJWAC"... or some such so that those who are interested can find the thread(s) and compare the progress? Suggestions?

Now... where did that Caddy fan belt go? :blink:

nice start there jairus

somehow i feel you have an unfair advantage since you know what the artwork actually depicted and know all the intimate details of it


lol, just kidding man


looking good


as for starting your own thread, i would just keep them all in one post

not only does it keep everything easier to follow, it also keeps the thread on the top of the forum because of the updates B)
