I'm calling this one done enough for now. Eventually I plan on adding some top bows draped with tattered fabric, and some broken glass fragments on top of the dash to represent the driver's side pane being smashed in. It's a curbside with a glued hood, and since I plan to eventually put in on a base sunken into dirt up to the rockers, there's only enough suspension componentry to keep the wheels in place.

This is pretty convincing Chuck. Beautiful weathering and the logs are a nice touch! I can see this parked under a roof off of an old barn.

Chuck, it's beautiful rust. You got it to look perfect. Nice detailing of the interior too. You clearly had a blast working on this one. It shows.

Wowzers! That is very good Chuck. Definitely a basket case of a fixer upper.

Looks like my friend Norm's '51 Commodore 6 convertible when he first got it.

It's in much better condition now.

Nicely done.

Chuck, this is my favorite of all of your builds that I've seen so far. You make looking BAD look real GOOD!

Nice weathering. Love the bullit holes. Looks like it was just pulled out of the woods.

Not much else I can say that hasn't already been said . . . very realistic . Only one thing bothers me , that redline tire just looks out of place . Maybe a layer of dirt would help ?
