I've had the pleasure of seeing this car in person. Its just a beautifully built machine. Great job again my friend. The pics don't do it justice.

Love it. Very well done .

I've become a huge fan of the early cars (1935 and prior) and same here, have been buying them up as funds allow

They are always on eBay as you may know Bill. They go cheap enough if you watch a handful at a time.


Keep it on the down low though, we don't want them to become the next Twinkie glut!!!!



Thanks to all...



Bob

Nice, Bob. The silver/black does very good on that, I must agree. About the only thing I might have done differently is the interior color- brown tones with silver and gray always looked a bit odd to me. Regardless, well done.

Fantastic build Bob!!! Whatever it takes to break a slump is good, and this looks like a museum piece.

B) Agreed

I watch for them regularly and have bought a few in the past several months . Most recent was a 1933 Imperial kit

I REALLY like the early cars.
