I'm limping in on this WIP with not much started yet, but trying to get ideas flowing. This is going to be a build of the Revell '41 Willys Street Rod, inspired by my little sister whose name is Stephanie Rose. She mentioned to me a while ago as she was admiring some of my other builds that she likes Willys hot rods, so I thought I would build one inspired by her, which will end up in her possession once I'm done showing it around.
Since she is the granddaughter of Ted Halibrand, I plan to accentuate the Halibrand wheels and also add a Halibrand quick change rear end and, of course, add some subtle logos to the body.
I'm thinking of going with a candy pink with some pearl ghost flames for the body paint. I picked up a flame mask from ebay all the way from Australia that I am eager to try out. Here's the mask:
Here is the center section I plan to use. It's a resin copy I made from the Monogram Pie Wagon. It's one of the best quick changes I've seen around.
I am also thinking about replacing the blower with an injection set up, as I think it will look cool to have some injector tubes sticking through the hood. I'm still trying to form my vision on this project, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to hearing them.
Thanks for looking!
