Hello guys, I will continue with this project soon.
I'm moving to a new home and I'm quite busy with moving and all my hobby stuff is packed in boxes.
Sorry, I'll come back soon!

Beautiful, you have to finish this one, buddy. It's a must. What a bunch of great work you've already done.

Hello guys. First of all I want to apologize for the long absence. I moved to a new home (besides all the furnishing I had to lay a new floor), we had our first child and we find our selfs in the middle of the startup phase of my wife's business. All in the last few months. We, my wife and I, are proud that we survived all this without trouble but a few things were left behind, such as this scale model.
A few weeks ago I finally could pick it up again, so here I am.

Here you see a few details of the block and the wiring. As you see on the pics, I used 2 types of wire for the wiring. A thinner brown wire and a thicker black wire cover which I pulled over the brown one to simulate the plugs.

I also decided to build in more detail into the carburetor and air filter

Posted Image

This way I can remove the air filter as real.

I'll be weathering the engine soon. I'll keep you posted.

That is really cool! One of my favorite cars. The kit companies keep pumping out all kinds of hardtops but never any convertibles, I just don't get it!

Hello guys, I'm back, after a while. I've been having some motivation issues with this project. But it's close to be finished soon. After painting the body, I've been doing some weathering and details. Here a few pics...

I painted one matt brown layer first and two red layers on top. I wet sanded all the body with 1200 grit sand paper mixing rust powder in the water to get a superficial rust effect with minor rust holes here and there.
I hope you like it!

Thanks for the update.

That looks fantastic. I like the work you've done into this build. Especially the engine detail looks impressive, and rust is very realistic too. I like where this project is going, more pictures, please.
