I like that little bugger.

Please don't say that you hand painted the plaid interior.

Bought patterned paper at Michael's. There's a lot of cool patterns in scrapbooking paper. And it's cheap! I actually got the idea from my wife, who used this type of paper as "wallpaper" for my daughter's dollhouse.

I love it! That color, with the plaid upholstery, engine, and wheel choice make it so cool!

Love that grille, too- minimalistic, but oh, so cool. Is that a 1:8 scale kit?

Thanks guys!

Nope, this is 1:25 scale. A resin body I bought eons ago, scratchbuilt chassis.

There's so much I like about this model ... the color, the engine, the proportions, the interior, the stance ... but, I've gotta be honest, the grill/headlight treatment just doesn't work for me because I think it gives the front end a cartoonish look. I personally think perhaps a cut-down '32 Ford grill shell and stalk-mounted headlights would've worked better.
Those are strictly my opinions, they're intended as constructive criticism and I hope I do not offend. I do know you like to push the envelope and go very much in your own direction with your builds, and for that, you are to be applauded, my friend! ;)


If we all thought the same way, life would be soooo boring! ;) The grille treatment came about for two reasons: 1) I didn't like how the chopped shell would look, and 2) wanter to give it a bit of a kustom look. So the almost-cartoony appearance is there on purpose!

Yep. Bent Plastruct, eyeball engineering. :)
