I didn't realize how popular this kit is until I looked at all the other '32 fords posted Under Glass! Well here's mine...

The last picture isn't showing up for me, but it won some awards at a show is what the pic was of.

The ripped part on the top is supposed to represent old leather drying out. Also, I 'Scratch Built' a makeshift mount for the alternator. Otherwise, it would have just floated there on the belt!
The white walls were painted with Tamyia White Acrylic, instead of using the decal. Tons of detail in this thing...

Forgot to mention: At some point during the building days of this project I dropped a large wooden ball right onto the frame, smashing the front suspension. <_< After fixing the snapped chrome bars, the car came out with that "negative camber" look on the front wheels...I don't know about you but I think it adds a great 'weathered' effect! Sometimes your greatest masterpieces are in fact accidents! :lol:
