Finishd this up...
Step notched rear frame, wheels and tires from the 48 Woody, whitewalls handpainted. Scaledreams (R.I.P.) air filter.... Moderate rusting....
Didnt put the rad hose in yet because im unsure if the radiator is suppose to sit high up like the instructions called for....

Very nice work!  At first I thought the windshield was broken out but that is just a shadow.  Cool ride.

It is cool that you captured that detail.  I've seen 1:1s missing the wood just like yours, but I can't remember anyone building it as a model.

Thanks guys... I was gonna try to raise the floor up, but decided that leaving it open to show the notch was better
