This is my take on Revell's 32 Ford, Paint is testors one coat, and did custom pegasus wheels. Let me know what you think. Thanks

Nice Deuce :)

Looks great on those Pegasus T's... Are they 19'' or 23''?

I'd consider putting smaller diameter in front, and larger in back B)

Looks good!

 

But since you asked . . . three little things (aside from wiring and plumbing):  First, where you have flame decals crossing door opening lines, they'll look much, much better if you slit the decal and use a little setting solution to snuggle the decal edges into the door openings.  Second, the embossed patent info on the chassis pan (just above your driveshaft u-joints) sticks out like a sore thumb; detracts from the beauty of your model.  Third, same is true of the seam down the middle of the engine bell housing.    

 

It's those little details that really make a difference!

23's, I actually built this about a year ago, and now know that they have a big, little combo. I think that that would have looked better too
