Great to hear, Bill! Your start looks excellent, I can't wait to see more of it.
The tires arrived today, so I have an update for my '40 Ford. These Tires are Very nice, and even if there is some cleanup required on the center seam, this Resin was really easy to work with and it took only few minutes to clean up. Then I cut those fender openings from the rear bit bigger. They are little rough on the pictures, because now everything is in MockUp stages. Parts fit fine, though so now I can finish them and start working on the axles.
There is no rear axle on the pictures, because I must make the floor before I can start looking for a place where to install the axle. Front Axle is from Revell Ford Thames Gasser, but I noticed that it is not working in this build. I will probably scratchbuild a new one, it might be easier to do so than to start modifying that one I already have. With that axle, the front end would be too high.
Here are The Tires as I got them:
Front Tires will be taken from the Lindberg Kit, and wheels are bought from ModelExpress when it was still in business. I don't know where they are from, but I'm guessing somekind of early Funny Car kit? Rear wheels are also Resin cast parts:
This is the stance I'm looking for:
