In Topic: Eighth Completion of 2013 -- 1/32 Scale Hot Rod Nostalgia Build

It's a wonderful thing to revisit your childhood, especially as a lifelong modeller. That's a neat lookin Duece, even for a very basic nostalgia kit. A lot like one of my all time favorites  the Monogram Dragstrip Duece with it's two piece body and such. Nice job, kool build...............

I'm a big fan of these cars and your build is sweet. The trunk detailing is seldom seen and much enjoyed. The spare tire and jack instructions show you did your homework. The cowl area in the engine bay should be body color though. A really nice build !

Thats what they call a "day 2" car nowadays! Very neat combination of period speed equipment, a period perfect rubber rake too ! Had a chance to buy one like it back in the day, low mile strippo 396/375 4 spd gold with black vinyl roof. $2,800 from a returning Vet. I THOUGHT IT WAS TOO MUCH MONEY ! ( *%#!!@*&!@! )

i just noticed the emergency brake cable and linkage is that scratch built ?? the chassis detail is  amazing just amazing


Hello again Anne,
Found some great 1:1 pictures on ebay, both parts and complete cars, that are great for detailing. Once again, a little Evergreen sheet, guitar string, and stretched sprue go a long way. Metal guitar string ( the smallest size, I dont know the musical name )is great for a variety of cables that have a wound armor cover.
