Best you save some time for building a few others on down the line . There's a rumor in the wind that somebody is looking for you ! Just wanted to give you a heads up , he's a bit of a motor mouth .

What is it that you don't like about the hood?

 

 

It looks to me like it doesn't fit or line up very well. The back looks low, the front looks too high and the body line doesn't match up. I don't know if that's what you trying do or if it was something with the kit. Either way I love the build and like it better without the hood.

Fantastic job with the patina, VIrgil.

 

Fantastic job all around, but your paint work is superb.

came out awsome !!!!!!!!!!!

i think without the white door / trunk logos it would also be very cool but this also looks great

the weathered look is just perfect ... love all the details

 

especially like the thread of the rear tyres , usually i have thos revell ones that keep having a thick line in the middle of the thread when you sand it it doesnt get much better , smooth but still...

 

cant waight to see the next build :)

Thanks, everyone.  All that is missing now is the guitar, and this one will be done.

Looks great Doc. I love ratrods. Can't wait to see the guitar. I might have missed it, but where did you get the guitar?

Dave, the guitar came with the kit.  One of those "sweet" extras they threw in.  Right now I am building an amplifier for the guitar, and the painting has begun.

All right, my friends, this one is pretty much done.  I added details up until the last minute, including some body work on the rear passenger fender, and scratch-built the amplifier and a new guitar for Mr. Gibbons.

 

I am posting the new pics over in UNDER GLASS.  Here's the link:
