Had a lot of fun building this 32. Lots of inspiration from years of drooling over hot rods, ol' school style. Wood floor, trunk tank, Buick style trim, and a few other details to give it "that" look. Thanks for looking.

Awesome build. I'd sure like to see more hot rods and street rods being built.
This had to be 1/8 scale. The wear marks along the trunk and radiator shell are too much. Excellent job. If the engine had some dirt and oil on it, I'd swear it was a real car.

In answer to this and an earlier post : this is the Monogram "Big Duece" 1/8 scale, the latest repop version. Does anyone remember what these originally cost back in the day ?
