Its FINALLY time to start my build thread for the Duesenberg!.....I've been bugging my Stepdad Clayton (Mr.ModelT here on the forum) about it every night for the last two weeks. The first thing he said was "Research what your building and know every detail personally...and there is no better way then studying the real thing". Unfortunately getting the chance to look at a real Duesenberg is next to impossible. Thanks to a friend of my Stepdad's however, I had the very rare opportunity to have a 2 hour visit with J-475/2486.... their beautifully restored 1931 Derham bodied Convertible Sedan (1 of only 5 built) it was awesome! You can see it on my avatar and the photos attached.
After crawling over the real Duesenberg, we made the first steps Last night when I airbrushed the engine with Mr.Model T, but that's all we got we got done .
Anyways, our game plan is to get the rest of the drive train parts airbrushed and perhaps the frame in body color (dark blue)...as well as getting all the chrome parts ready for re-plating....Clayton is taking care of that for me .
Stay tuned for more and follow along!
