'27 C Cab

Obviously, this is just a mock-up. It wants to be a little longer than stock wheelbase, so I'm sorting out just how much longer. So far, everything is from a Lil' John '27 T and '31 Model A kits. The Model A wires were a bear to clean up...I should have just ordered the Replica's and Miniatures ones and been done with it. lol. Ah well. I'm through that part and it was probably the worst of it on this one.

My avatar is an IMP cyclecar. That's the only image I have ever seen of one with a delivery body, and I fell in love with it immediately. When I finally get around to building that, it'll be my modeling thesis...since it will have to be pretty much entirely scratchbuilt. Not sure if I'll do it in 1/16 or 1/8 scale, but it'll be one or the other. Fortunately, the delivery is just a rebody from what I can tell, and there's plenty of reference material available for the regular body style version. Here's the full pic and a decent summary page link. If you ever find yourself needing to get totally and completely engrossed in a thread for several hours, go to the hamb and do a search for cyclecar. Some of them are so freaking cool they kill me. Off the charts on the hot rod juju scale.

I got in a rush and painted when I shouldn't have. It was really humid today. I knew better, but then again I usually do and keep going anyway. Gun started spitting on me during the last once-over. Not that big of a deal because I planned to use a brush for the final coat as a nod to how it would have been done in the 30's, but it'd have been nice to not need another round of sanding. Ah well. Fenders and aprons up next, while the barn red dries enough to mess with.
