Hi

 

This is my first attempt at posting a new topic on this forum. I just joined 2 days ago and am very impressed with the models I'm seeing by everyone. I built this Revell kit about 5 years ago. Some of the mods include "Z'ing" the frame front and rear, installing a blown Ardun flattie using the fantastic RepMinCo parts as well as their Duvall windshield and roof.

 

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful Hot Rod, Rod!  I really can't anything I don't like.  The Ardun heads, SCOT blower, smooth black paint...very nice model.

I like that it's not a clone, and it really is an excellent tribute. It draws just the right elements from the Doane roadster. Beautiful.

Beautifully executed, a true "tribute", a blend of the 1:1 and aspects of the modern Revell donor. A very handsome traditional hot rod in the contemporary style. Congrats!
