I also love street rods, having built 1:1 cars many years ago. I will have a 1:1 street rod before I retire (or shortly thereafter).

I fell in love with the Revell '32 Ford kits and have built 10 kits in different forms with several resin bodies to fill in what Revell has not produced to date (I bet they aren't finished with their line of '32 Ford kits).

This is an old school 50s style build with a flathead (from the sedan kit). The model was lowered 2mm in front and rear as per Tim Boyd's suggestions.The paint is Tamiya Light Blue Pearl (airbrushed as usual). I love the Revell "rat-rod" tires and I used them here on wheels from the Revell '49 Merc kit.

If you're thinking of buying it, I say go for it! :lol: It's a beauty! Nice job on the details, I love the sign and I'm also a huge fan of the '32.

Absolutely cool from front to back, top to bottom. Color is awesome!

My favorite part, though, is the combination of tires, wheels and caps you came up with. Those Ford caps are a bit on the large size and they look just right on the Merc wheels. Gonna have to file that for a future project.
