The 'real' one? Or the MPC Switcher in disguise?


That is for the "real" AMT '32 sedan as in the Willys/'32 Ford hotrod or issued on its own.

I'm in if it's OK to accept a beginner. I've noticed the detail guys go to on "Workbench" forum, is that what you are looking for?


Ron, although we do have a group of world class builders here, the majority of us are in the beginner to intermediate range. And like you we are all here to improve our skills. Builders of all levels are encouraged to participate on this forum in any way. As for detail, you add as much as you are comfortable with, or just built it straight from the box. The important part is that you have a good time and do the best work that you can.

Christian, I'd planned to join in with a rebuild of my old roadster, but just realized it's based on the old Monogram kit. I'll have to see what I can dig up.

I had no idea it ever was available on its own. I always thought it only came in the Deuce/Willys double kit and is hence highly collectible. In any case, it is certainly the rarest of the bunch and this may reflect in the prices.

But you can get a resin body for less than a tenner. JF makes a 1:1 copy of the AMT body, and also a chopped version. He also makes 4-door bodies, stock and chopped.

Not that I need to jump in on another CBP, but I think I can manage something for this. :D

It was released by itself in the '70s in the Street Rods series, like the Victoria and 5 window coupe. Neat kit.

As I have previously stated, the AMT '32s are some of my all time favorites. Here are a few old glue bombs I won't be useing, I will start with two fresh ones. Oh, and I love the Revell and Monogram '32s also.Posted Image

This is interesting idea, I have to admit that I have built only one AMT '32 Ford (and I guess that was AMT, but not 100% sure). I'm looking forward to see what kind of projects we can see in this thread.
This is my Chopped, Channeled, Sectioned, Shaved etc etc. Ford Roadster from AMT GlueBomb.

This is what I'm starting with, a gluey AMT '32 5-window that I've already bugun to chop. Doesn't look too promising.........

The '32 sedan issued on its own is not the one from the double kit. It could be built as a stock or hotrod very similar as the AMT Vicky.

First mockup. '32 5W coupe, about a 3.5" scale chop, no channel. '30-'31 style visor over the windshield. '32 Chevy-style hood sides. Engine will probably be a multi-carb Caddy if I stay contemporary. Or maybe a 406 Ford. Pegasus wheels will run knockoffs.

Ace I'm awfully close to being your biggest fan. Your work ups always look exactly right.

Wow! As a fan of vintage model kits, I'm super excited about this one. I've collected a number of AMT '32 Ford kits and aftermarket parts for the same and have been looking for an excuse to build one. I have too many projects on my bench right now but I'll have to make room for another. I will post some pics as soon as I decide which version to build.

Hey Ron, the model's looking good. Love your inspiration shot too. I think you've got it. Good idea using the cut-down fender unit to simulate the frame reveal.
