Hello........my good buddy Paul Cadwell  AKA  "2whl" here on the forum......turned me on to this mag. .......and thought that the 31 Nash way beyond  "Rat Fink" Coupe would catch my eye........well, he was right.......I loved it......I could not find a plastic or resin kit for a 31 Nash........so I will have to modify something........my mind is ticking ........this build may take a while longer to build........as I am building a 1/24 F/C chassis with all the bells and whistles for my friend at the same time.........thanks for looking.

:) Lots of juicy details for you to work with! B)

 

You say Rat Roadster but the pic is of a coupe. Are you planning an open car?

John, I think you could source some older MPC rods for the diamond pleat interior patterns.

 

I know you'll do your usual killer work on this baby !

John how did you do at the GSL ? Saw some pictures of some of your builds that where there.

The Rat Rod your going to build will be quit  a car I'm sure when you get it completed.

I'd go with what Todd said- get a Monogram '30 Model A five window and convert it accordingly.

 

I was thinking of building this too, but couldn't find too many reference pics for it until it was listed on ebay a few months back-

Chuck.......thank you for posting the pictures......I had most of them .......and the magazine feature pics too.......I will try to build it as close as possible.......sure would like to see you build it as well.......I might shy away from the Nash all together and go with a Ford theme?.........I`ll just use the same look.......thanks.

Nah... I'll let you handle this one, John! You're way more qualified than me to duplicate the paint job on the 1:1.

I AM planning on building something that looks similar to this though, with the AMT '33 Willys body. :)
