Working on a couple of '48 Ford Convertibles for an online contest.
The first one is a 5 dollar gluebomb IMC and the second one is a Testors flatbox.
The Testors is a little further along than the IMC/Union Ford.
Did a little modification (snicker..hee hee) on the IMC/Union
by adding a Revell '48 Caddy grill..grill surround is homemade
also added the side trim because the original came with chrome
tape trim.Cut out the original rear axle and added a modern pumkin
rear end..motor is a 427 Ford. Molding on the fenders was done
with half round facing the body to make the transition easier.
Tail lights were removed ...bumper guard lites are in the works.
yada yada yada....
narrowed rear spring and "new" pumpkin rear
windshield glass removal....hahahaha
this styrene is so fraaagiiiiLeee..
broke it in three pieces ...
one piece again..
peek at Revell '48 Caddy grill and custom grill surround.
Styrene added to the front cowl , fender joints and door openings.
sanded down the glued upper grill and started the grill surround
buckets were glued in with a small space , left between the body and the rings,
to create a kind of extended frenched in look. this shot includes the added half round
side trim sanded down to flatten it a bit. also shows the chopped convertible top.
