Richard, as I've been watching your build, there was something familiar about it... then I remembered this one! I cut the roof off the '34 snap kit a while ago but never went any further with it. Mostly because the side panels were very thick and didn't look right to me.

you could make some trips of styrene along the upper line of the door , curving to the back and make like a canvas roof that could be rolled up and down ?

make like some cross members in between for strenght ??

 

but i know what you mean about the thickness , you would not believe how thick the roof on mine was on the rounded shapes of the roof , at one point i thought what did i got myself into

 

your doorwith / thickess does look thicker then mine though

Really enjoyed watching this build. It reminds me of the way that those of us that build 1:1 cars and don't have all the fancy equipment such as lathes and mills would do it. One thing that I really liked was that, even though you are working with a plastic model, the building style would have been period correct for a 1:1 car. This is what true hot rodding is all about. Very nice.

 

 

I have to add that I find it ironic that, even though you live in another country, your english is STILL better and easier to understand than about 40% of our population. LOL!

whow thnx ..

well tbh i never have been around real hotrods much , really sad but true.
i'm turning 38 this year and just one year ago i saw a perioud correct hotrod for the first time on a show in belgium..
there are shows here and i'm planning to visit some this year ...

so on my models i'm just doing something i feel is right , i'm not a real hotrod expert in any way , so when you say it makes you think of the 1:1 back in the ...
that makes me smile , doing something right i guess :)

i believe its like when you really have a passion for something and you really look into it you can self teach and become self -made
also and i keep saying this i learned a lot in the short perioud i have been here by seeing others at work , just proves how inspiring good build threads with good pictures can be :)

and about the english > back in the day @ school i always got a 9 or 10 for english and never learned for exams :)
it also helps that i have been on english based forums for a few years..

maybe sometimes my sentences are a bit weird and on some things i dont know the right word but i can manage i guess :lol:

 

anyway thnx for the kind words
