I call this one "Black Magic". Took me about 2 months to complete this build it's all box stock and painted with rustoleum gloss black. This is only the second time I have painted a model black and i think it came out pretty good, the pictures do not really do the paint justice. I forgot to get a picture of the interior before I put it together, but its just red and white. I'm really satisfied with the way this one came out. All comments welcome! Thanks for looking!

Very cool in black. Neat seeing this kit in a basic colour like black.

Great looking '48 Cole! Very clean and simple. Kind of has a '50's-'60's Hot Rod look!

great build. Your photography is awesome. what did you use for the pavement, it looks so real and to scale. I guessing a foot tread?

For the pavement I just took a piece of wooden board and then painted it with rustoleum textured spray paint and then added some white lines to simulate a road

that is cool, it makes the car look that much more real, thanks for the tip.

Very cool looking Ford. Simple, but effective.  I love the front pic, it looks like Grumpy Cat. Or perhaps Grumpy Car ?

Very cool build. Nice, claen, and not all hot rodded out. a little rust would look good on that. Like a nice survivor car.
