Since no model company ever did one, I decided back in 2001 to work one up on my own (I'd tried to do it way back in about 1962, but materials, tools and my own techniques made it an impossible task)--so here it is now, even though stalled for several years:

Body is made from two AMT 25 T roadsters, top comes from two AMT '27 T Touring Cars, lotsa cutting, shrinking and stretching went on here:

Art,

As a certified diagnosed patient of overcomplicaditis, I know the feeling :D

That is looking very good, but I have to ask, did you find the Hupmobile? :wink:

But don't worry: As soon as you finish it, it wll be available in kit form :D
Thanks,

That sure looks like a good candidate for a resin casting. I'd buy one.

It's great work, btw. Old iron rocks.

Unfortunately, it's really not engineered to be easily cast, as the center panel (across the body behind the front seat) is a solid body member now--too many problems that way---so, it's just gonna get finished out just for me.

You can see that the center panel is already installed, and is a solid part of the body shell. Without this, the body would be as fragile as an eggshell!
