Looking good. Are you going to correct the mold lines down the side of the cab for the 38 look?
I too need to make a true 38 and was thinking of sanding off the 37 rib lines and adding 1/2 round styrene to make the three ribs. Not sure is the cab is thick enough.
Yes, it will be corrected but I'm sneaking up on it. The stepped reveal around the side windows will get filled first, and then I'll see just where the ribs have to go. I was thinking of the same thing you mentioned, but probably filling the cab sides before adding the 1/2 round. It's some fiddly work.
I really think the guy who built this 1:1 got it about perfect, proportion-wise. Not having the real one to measure has put me in the position of having to build what I think is right, photograph it and look a the results, and then modify things as necessary to dial it in. I've adjusted the top-chop 3 times so far. If I were to do this build again, I'd probably start with a '37 car cowl, firewall, doors, forward roof and windshield.
