Here's a '37 that's been slammed and painted in the "true fire" style:

Ahhhhh... So Nice! The stance is pretty much the same as your mockup. I enjoyed the tail end of your W.I.P. post to see how you got there. As always, the lovely interior with the on-the-money choice of colors and style is buried inside the body. Perhaps you could post a pic so folks could appreciate that tasty detail. Anyway, shiny mag wheels (oversized but traditional 5-slots were the perfect choice IMHO) buried inside the fenders on the oh-so-right slammed stance, glossy black paint to show off the stunning flame job, and nicely detailed chassis and engine (more pics?) all make this streamlined baby a sweet, sweet contemporary rod build...

Yes that's what happened! I don't really mind it this way, though.

Thanks, it's the Revell '37 Ford Sedan kit. It's still available from some of the internet stores.

And I removed mine to look like the one piece glass that is available for them. You can always say you did it on purpose!

Ditto times two! That's a fantastic model in all respects. Contest winning material right there.
