My idea of a fun car


I don't think most read a long description,
and they say a picture is worth 1000 words,
so full build pics with captions here ...

nothing beats the horseshoe radiator grille. just read that Norm's original T bucket had a giant dice shift knob.

Very nice Ford Roadster, it sure looks like real deal. The stance is just right and I like the color too. Very clean and nice overall, but those battery cables could look bit more realistic, or is it just me?

Looks great overall, yes it could pass for real. Only one thing if you don't mind some input. Just add some weight to those tires and road wear to the tread. Leave the sidewalks blac for that fresh car wash look and you could pass for real other than the cables.

dont try to pass your 1:1 ford as a modelcar please -_- <_<














kidding > that looks so realistic , shoot that on the perfect location and a tad further away with the cam and its 1:1 looking every day
