The only thing to keep in mind when choosing the subject matter is that it has to be full of chrome parts, especially when you're selling the American dream in Europe...

'bout the investment, see PM

Fount this page on the old car brochures website...it's from a '70 P/U, of which item #13, may be of some interest.

Hard to find pictures of the 1:1 that are near the same perspective as the model shot, as the photographer would need to be up on a ladder.  Did manage to find a fairly close shot of one on a wrecker...

Think one of the issues is, one of shadows, like the creases, curvatures are there, but don't realy show up right, due to photo shoot lighting, where the pics of the 1:1s are in natural light.

 

Maybe Sven needs to build one, which looks like it was exposed to the elements for a few decades, faded red, with flat white bumpers and grille, adding weathering, which will pop out the details. just sayin'...

The H&M is totally cool in my book, and I'd be all over a plastic kit like a monkey on a... well, you get the idea...   But there's literally nothing left stock on the H&M.   Top's chopped, wheelbase is altered, frame is shortened, rearend is a narrowed 4-link, interior is totally gutted, body is slid forward on the frame...  Would take 2 separate kits or a dedicated H&M kit to do it properly.  And who wants a stodgy ol' Plymouth business coupe, anyway? Give me one of the fastback sedan or the pre-war 5 windows (AMT already did that one) if you want to do a 40's Plymouth.  

Then release it as a snapper, I'm sure those who build Gassers will know where to source the parts for a full detail version, while the weekend modelers will end up with a decent looking shelf piece without much work.
