LOL, really?  When was the last time you saw a big model builder wearing a Russian military helmet and gas mask, checker suspenders, a kilt, Miami Dolphin socks, and foofy and comfy Chinese-made Crocs? :)

Chris, I drilled them out.  Took a while, but it looks better.



I will paint the guitar last, I think, as the crowning last touch.  We still have a ways to go.  Spent the day spraying primer.

 

Virgil... thanks for answering my question. I think it looks killer that you drilled them out and I have to agree it looks way better. I am sure digging this build so far. I always love seeing your builds come to life and one of these days I am going to have to try and rust one out "Dr. Cranky Style". Thanks for always taking us step by step.

We are making slow progress weathering this one . . . and enjoying the process, subtly and precisely adding just enough touches to make it go . . .

It looks like you were serious when you said it would be finished this week end.  The only thing I still do not see is the guitar and you did say you were doing it last as I recall.  You are a man with a plan indeed!  Thanks Doc, you have inspired me to try and finish one this week end.   :)

LOL, why did you think I said this weekend?  Because I have to finish the guitar!  I am looking forward to it. Billy Gibbons "Gibson Bones"!

 

Stay tuned for more progress.  I just finished adding a last few rounds of dust and dirt . . .

That hood looks jacked up. Love the model without it! Are you planning on building another one of these?

I sure am, James.  As a matter of fact, this kit is my number one contender for Doctor Cranky's ONE-MODEL-A-MONTH-FOR-TWELVE-MONTHS build in 2014.  Working with this kit to see how different each model can be, six shiny and six not.

 

What is it that you don't like about the hood?

Love it. Frankly, I think the porthole hood works much better with your irreverent build style than it does on the shiny original.

I think the hood looks cool.. one thing about these old ford roadsters. there is a billion in 1 ways to build them.

 

Precisely why this one is a great contender for my year-long, one-model-per-month build.

Thanks, John, coming from you that's a real energy boost!



Love it. Frankly, I think the porthole hood works much better with your irreverent build style than it does on the shiny original.

 

Bill, I think the trick for a shiny one might be not to use the inserts and just put a nice mesh that looks in scale.  Or, drill out the inserts too.
