Clifford:

 

Some very interesting work here indeed....

 

A question for you... I am assuming here that you added this detail to a diecast model....  which one did you use as the basis for the 40 Ford Coupe?    ..... just wondering because I can't seem to place it....thanks....

Yes it's a 1st gear diecast  '40 Ford coupe ....originally a $24 'Car Quest' diecast promo. I think that diecast is the best proportioned '40 coupe of all.....better than any plastic kits and even better than Danbury's versions. The dog-leg doors had to be modified into discreet hinges and all the '90s hi-tech details have been removed and modified into a traditional '50s style custom rod...transverse leaf springs and i-beam axle etc.

It's almost finished and as soon as it is, I'll post it on 'Under Glass'.

The engine looks fantastic, especially because that Revell Parts-Pak Caddy is quite a pain to put together... Looks great, overall ;)

Incredible engine detail and that radiator is outstanding! Would definitely like to see more of the car too.
