Finished the Gasser  .. http://www.modelcars...topic=69549&hl=

so now onto the Tudor.

Ive 'Suicided" the front end.

IMG_2818_1024x682_zps5dc30495.jpg

IMG_2815_1024x682_zpsf9a379f7.jpg

 

and decided to use the Revell Parts Pack 354 Cadillac engine.

Since the motors going to be out for all to see, I thought I'd try a bit of detailing.

 

I decided to drill out the carbs and add butterflies.

if everything shares the detail of the carburetor, it will be a fantastic ride

Are you going to change the '30/'31 cowl to a '28/'29 style? It can be done with a Revell '29 pickup cowl.

Thanks for the nice comments guys..

Hey LDO

 

Are you going to change the '30/'31 cowl to a '28/'29 style? It can be done with a Revell '29 pickup cowl.

I hadn't thought of that..but great idea. I have that kit in my stash. I'll swap cowls ..

 

cheers

I'm really enjoying this build..the vehicle style suits my tastes...so I see a few more in my future build list! :-)

 

As per LDO's suggestion Ive swapped in the 28 / 29 cowl from my parts box.

IMG_2839_1024x682_zps5085b153.jpg

 

I raised the rear frame Zed as I felt the car wasn't low enough. That introduced a deeper body channel and floor construction. Two steps froward..one back! :-)

 

IMG_2853_1024x682_zps41902c52.jpg

 

 

Then scratched the rear spring and axle mount.

Been away on business so its been slow progress lately. I did however get some paint on before I left, so its time for some initial assembly.
