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. :)

Chuck........yes,that`s why I choose to try and build this car.......I wanted the challenge of the paint job........I found a 3 window Coupe in my parts boxes...... think I might go for modifying it to a Nash.........it might not be to hard?..........and I`ll ask a friend to make the decal for me.......they say great minds think alike :) ............thanks

Can't wait to see this one ! I was wondering what you were going to build next :)

That magazine is sitting on my desk, the back rims look like the ones in the Revell Thunderbolt kit .

Not sure if it will help but maybe a 31 plymouth if someone makes a resin body ?

I wondered what happened to a radiator - then there it was laying down.  I'm sure you'll be able to pull this build off quite easily, John.  I'm looking forward to seeing the WIP.

Well, there's no doubt in my mind that you can pull this off John! I'm sure you'll do it justice and then some. Can't wait to see this come together!

Hello........thank you all for the interest in this build...........these partial kits will be the donors......I decided to use the Heller 1/24 Renault........it has more of a square body like the Nash........I will combine some of these kits and scratch build what I need........I sanded down the rag top and I will mold it into a hard top.......I opened up the doors,chopped the top and cut open the roof........I will add window frames to the doors,open up the rear window and add all the body moldings latter.........I think I will be able to capture the look of the Nash?........it wont be perfect but,good enough for me.......thanks for looking.
