VERY nice, Karsten! The weathering is just about perfect. The half flat tires are a nice touch - very realistic!

Excellent build It would be so cool if you could find an old barn and get some pictures of it in the backround

Now that is cool, if you didn't say it was a model I would have sworn it was real.

How did you get it so the tires look almost flat on the Passengers side?

If I didn't know better, I'd have thought it was a real 1:1 car!

This is really cool project. In 1:1 scale that would be great start for Hot Rod project. The weathering is very nice and I like those flat tires. Great job with the engine too. 1:8 scale Deuces are something really rarely seen.

Nice,looks really good,But I think those tires will hold air they look fairly new,put some air in and drive it home...when the suns out.

Outstanding!!! Just-right aging/weathering ... not over the top, as so often happens. Very, very realistic.

Kudos!!!!

I've never seen a rusty one in this scale, nice work.  I know this one has been on here a while but, I some how missed it.  I just started looking at big scale again and love it.  This one goes on my list, Thanks.
