Started with this picture as the basis of a replica of a car bought by a friend in around 1950...
Here's the model:
I used the "hot rod" sedan kit and used the wheels/tires, steering wheel, shifter, bumpers and cropped gas cap from the Sedan Delivery kit...built as a curbside and attached to a lightly weathered base for a display case. Personalized the Ontario plates from a plate decal set (WaterMark, I think). Modified the tail light/plate assembly to better match the original.
2 Monogram kits used - Mustang 2+2 and GT350R. Built to depict a weekend warrior hobbyist racer's car.
Used Tamiya TS-14 Black from the can with 2 coats of Future before decals and one coat after decals.
Dash glove box door cut out, radio deleted, rear wheel tubs cut out to fit the larger rear tires, wheel centres and exhaust tips drilled out, front dust caps added. No wires as wanted to build as a shelf model. Enjoy. (More photos here)
