Comparing Stock (my preferred) and Custom:

 

Some may notice I added more detail to the stock '49. I added valves to the wheels, darkened the wheel windows, added a rear view mirror (take a look Harry) foiled the FORD lettering on the hood, added a chrome tail pipe tip, and a hood latch.

Thank you gentlemen!!!

 

The body work involved was little, but by far I spent more time on the front end. As I wanted the stock grille, that for me is a hallmark of the car, making it fit with the custom front pan in place was not a simple task. I had to get the whole grille up by some good two scale inches, what included cutting the custom hood shorter, and also a round role to accept the grille's contour.

On this picture comparing the stock and custom it will be more clear:

Looks great!!

All my models are shelf models. It's a lot more fun this way. Building those things is supposed to release you of stress, not build up more of it, right?

Very very nice job. Great looking model, with well done detail and paint.

Not to mention the car itself is great looking.
