Negative. It is sitting on my shelf taunting me right now. I've started my Stude for the Cannonball Run CBP and will likely get them both ready for paint at the same time. This way, I have the painting out of the way while it's still cool and can finish them during the height of the summer.

Thanks for looking.

Okay, this one is back on the work bench as I just finished my '37 Ford. 

 

Working on modifying the kit radiator to include a electric fan and the Viper intake tubes. Still on the fence as far as paint. I'm leaving towards something satin, but not sure yet. Suggestions welcome.

I'm thinking gloss silver and flat black Jim. I've got a good feeling.

The bomber art is something I'm kicking around but the panel line and rivet thing has been done many, many times, and it's not my style to replicate what has already been done. I'm also considering some sort of tribal design.

One suggestion I have, and I plan on doing it to mine when I build it, is smooth the top of the passenger side over flow box and add just the top of a battery to it to make it look somewhat like a battery. Monogram was famous for doing stuff like that. The '77 Chevy 4X4 has two batterys!

Holy shnikes! I hadn't noticed that. Thanks very much Roger.

 

EDIT- just Google imaged it. There are two reservoirs. One for coolant over flow the other for wiper fluid I'm guessing. However they are much smaller than the molded part. I think I'm going to do what you suggest.

The driver's side would be the wiper/washer reservior, the passenger side would be the radiator overflow, at least that is how Chevy built mine...  They are both made of the same material.

Thanks guys, I'll be hitting it hard this weekend. There really isn't any time consuming work left so getting to paint is pretty likely. More soon.
