Here are some pics of my latest completion. It's based on the Revell 48 Woody. I mastered the grille and hood to convert it to a 42 Model. I painted the grille pieces with Alclad. I think they actually look better in the picture than in reality. Maybe it's the flash that highlights the chrome look.

Here are a couple of other conversions I have done as well. A stock 42 Convertible and a custom 42 coupe.

I agree! Way nice! Luv the woody and the ragtop the most. I would assume the 42's were real low production, what with the wartime changeover in industry at the time.

Beautiful! What colors did you use for the wood, and what was your technique?

Very cool, Somewhere I have a picture of a 42 Woody painted overall olive drab and a star on the hood.  Would make an interesting model.
