As the weather this weekend has meant I can't do any spraying I've made a start on this one. It's the Monogram 41 Lincoln convertible with the roof from a Revell 48 Ford Coupe and the trunk from a Revell 40 Ford added. Still a bit of putty work to do but hopefully you can see the general direction it's heading.

Nice...

 

I'm a little surprised we have no kit of the Zephyr.

BEAUTIFUL car!!! I had to watch one just rust to peices because an older gentleman refused to sell it. When he finally passed, it took his family about 10 years to settle his estate, an by that time it was just too far gone, as it sat outside his shop in southwest Detroit for easy 50 years.One day I drove by and EVERYTHING was gone, building ,car, dog, everything. It was a BEAUTIFULY designed car though!

Thanks for the interest guys - much appreciated.I had hoped to get some primer on this weekend but we've had snow & below zero temperatures here since Friday so I haven't made any real progress except some more sanding of the body. John, here's some pictures from a couple of different angles
