Here's a "Trackside Photo" of the Ford as it makes it's laps around the spectators. The Red Ferrari tries to catch up.
After all this work, I'm not looking forward to racing this car. I can imagine that the guard rails and a few roll-overs will scratch all my paint job.

Time for an update!

Here's the body, wearing it's second coat of Tremclad Orange paint. Yup! It's rust paint!

The car after my hand painted black and white stripe. The hardest part of this was finding center and then keepint the stripe width even on both sides.

The rear view.

And from the roof. The paint is Artist's One shot Enamel.

Some very old Testor's decals. These must be from the 1960's, although none of the manufacturers ever put dates on anything.

Floating the decal in warm water.

Hood decal. Note the transpercancy on the white decal film. There's two ways to fix that. #1 is to paint a white circle under the decal and #2 is to use an identical decal over the top. I went with #2 using a second decal sheet.

All three number decals on the car.

A test run of parts fit before final glueing.
The next step will be glueing in the windows and painting the backs black and then adding the final chrome touches.

Not quite finished yet, but I thought I'd post a picture of the car with the chrome details painted on. I will use some Bare Metal Foil for the long side spear on the side of the car.

Hi everyone!

I found this post recently when I was searching for this car as I was converting it for Slot Car Racing. I thought you guys might get a kick out of my handywork.

Also, I found this kit (an original by another company) with chrome bumpers and grill. Wish Lindberg had done the same. Silver paint just doesn't cut it!

This is my conversion (so far) of the 1/32nd scale Lindberg 1949 Ford Tudor Coupe model. It uses Monogram Slot Car Parts on a home built Evergreen Styrene frame and body pan.

The 1949 Ford with the body removed. All I need to do to finish the car is to enlarge the hole ahead of the front axel and add the front pick-ups. Once this is done, I can then paint it. It will be orange with black and white racing stripes and numbers.

Not a problem. It's good to get the publicity.
