That's a great build of a great car! I recently visited the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum. Words can't describe it!

Thanks
The color is from a spraycan, brilliant blue RAL5007. I thought that this color looked very nice on this Cord, so
probably not a correct original shade for this car. This was not my intention anyway :)

Beautiful model. I wish AMT/Round 2 would reissue this kit. I'm always curious about how easy or hard is this kit to really build?

Great job, and especially nice work on painting the very thin chrome on the hood/nose/sides.  I've got this kit in the stash; they say the roll-up windows are too large and a bear to fit properly, and I see you've wisely omitted them.

Nice build!

Did you have to paint the whitewalls? The original kit had tampo-printed whitewalls,but I heard the later versions didn't have them.

I have one of the later issues (yellow body) and it has blackwalls.

Yes! I have this in the pile, but I don't know if it will be built stock ;)

Hi and thanks all ! I´m glad to see this old thread of mine :-) First, the whitewalls was supplied in the kit, it was a very old kit.

I remember that the fit was rather bad, the dash was to long so the doors couldn´t be closed properly, biggest problems was the frame,

the car is leaning a little to one side. I had to warm up one side of the frame  with a lighter just  to make it fit at all.

There was an issue with the front uprights, don´t remember exactly how it was ... The front has BMF on the side ribs

I do remeber it was a tricky build but I like the way it turned out in the end,   it´s a great design I think !
