Built as an old drag car, found and restored for the street. Used a lot of the Stacy David kit and Reps & Mins resin body. Wheels are from the Orange Crate, painted magnesium color.

Very nicely done. I bet some outdoor shots would make it look like the real thing.

Nice build and I agree that if you shot pics of it outside, it would look like the real thing

I love it! Really like the semi-flat blue with some primer peeking through.

All it needs to look like a fresh "barn find" is a little hay & some "chicken droppin's" lol. Nice little A-Bone though!

Exquisite!!! B)  :)  Artful use of Rat Roaster bits. And the patina of the paint is stunning. Is that chopped A-Bone coupe a new piece from RepMin? I wasn't aware of it. A must have if it is... Big labor saver! Especially with the proper trim in place. And as long as I'm in an inquiring frame of mind, what's the source for the cool wheels?
