Thanks for the kind words. No. I don't have any plans to cast it.

I noticed a huge difference this morning when looking at this photo of the 1:1 compared to my build. Notce how much of the white side trim there is between the rear of the door and the kick up on the rear fender. I don't know why I never noticed it before. It appears that Zocchi had the rear fender area extended forward. The magazine article that I am using for reference doesn't mention that. I never thought to compare the kit with the 1:1 in that area because the magazine article gives quite a list of other mods that were done.PC200025-vijpg.jpg

Oh well. I wasn't planning on an exact replica with this build. I just wanted to see if I could do it and what it would look like in 1/25. Good enough for me.
As you can see I have begun the top chop. Now comes the exciting mods for me.

Thanks. I may look into it. I think that because it is of a specific car, and from the 90's it might not be as desirable. I do know I have always liked most of Zocchi's builds. Anywho-- I remember seeing a post not long ago about Moebius doing a 56 Windsor soon. Not sure about that.

Well, I got the hard part of the top chop done tonight and just need to clean it up and start the sanding on it. I'm off to bed now and will start the clean up during lunch tomorrow and post a couple of photos then. It is pretty ugly right now. Stay tuned.

I've got photos of the top chop for your inspection. I had to wedge cut the top in the front and rear to get the pillars to line up. I think it has the right look and now I have to putty in all of the cuts.

Great build! I really like the 1:1 and your modeling is staying true to form.

Will you try to capture the pin striping?

Thanks guys for the nice words. James- Yes, I'm going to try. I'm sure it will be a great source of frustration for me, but I am going to break out my airbrush and give it a try.
I may get some putty on it tonight.

Thanks for the comments. I managed to get some putty on the roof during lunch and got it sanded down. It is going to need at least one more coat of putty. No pictures due to nothing really exciting to show. I got some work done to my 51 Fleetline today also. I'm going to start its own posting when I get home tonight. So, look for it.
