We all like detailed models, but there's something to be said for a simple build now and then. This is about as simple as it gets - the Revell 34 Ford coupe Snap-Tite kit. I bought it on a whim and enjoyed building it. I made a few mods: 32 Ford wheels with vintage piecrust slicks and narrow front tires (painted whitewalls), and a Testors gloss black paint job (I didn't like the factory purple), with orange wheels and orange and tan interior. I added a BMF stripe on the side, and foiled the windshield frame.

No mirrors, Harry. None came in the kit and I just forgot about them. I'll add one later. I need to redo the black wash on the grille, too. I hope you guys like it.

I have to agree Sam a simple build is relaxing and also good for motovation.  lt looks sharp. nice touch on the wheels....

Troy, the box says it's 1/25 scale, but it looks a bit small to me. The hood looks about 6 scale inches short, but overall, I think the model looks ok.

This is nice and a favorite snap kit of mine....  Three and counting finished and three more on the shelf un-opened.

 

You did a great job here!!!
