Duntov-

Thanks for the great comment. I'd be excited if it was compared to the Matranga Merc. In my opinion there is no better looking car from that time period.

I got the suspension adjusted today. It will sit just a hair lower once it is glued. Right now the gaps in the chassis and floor aren't tight. I also got a quick coat of primer on to check the work.

Spent some time last night working on this. I am planning to use the V8 engine from the Revell 32 five window but I can't find a dual carb intake to fit it. Anyone know of one that will fit?
I reworked the seat pattern to replicate the one in the mag. It was a slow progress night last night.

Assuming that you're referring to the early Chrysler-hemi in Revell's '32 five-window coupe, it already has a dual 4 barrel intake, carbs, & air cleaner in it.   However, Replicas & Miniatures of MD sells an upgraded/more accurate resin set of carbs & intake for that engine (P-114).    Also, AMT's '57 Chrysler 300C and Moebius' '55 Chysler C300 also have very accurate dual 4 barrel intakes & carbs that should fit the engine found in Revell's '32 five window.  

 

btw - R&M of MD also have other intakes/carbs for that Revell Chrysler-hemi:

4 carb intake Stomberg carbs arranged inline & curved stacks (P-114)

6 carb log  intake w/ 6  Strombergs & curved stacks (P-112)

8 carb log intake w/ 8 Stromberg carbs & curved stacks, plus a set of modified heads to adapt to Revell's engine (P-111)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

If you're referring to the small block Ford engine in Revell's '32 five-window, R&M of MD also have a dual 4 barrel intake, carbs, & air cleaners (SRD 1403) designed for Revell's '32 kits w/ the small block Fords found in them.

I was refering to the small block In the 5 window. I have not been able to find a dual carb intake. Thanks for the info on R& M of MD. I was going to call them today. Now I have parts numbers.
On a side note, what the heck happened to my photos. They are not sized right any more. They were not like that the other day.

What happened to my post? Why are the pictures showing all stretched out? It wasn't like this before. How do I fix it?

I think I know why now. I have been taking the pictures with the phone turned sideways.

This is frustrating that my posts for this build will not fit my screen. I am ditching this one and starting a new one for this build.
