That is a super job on the hearse, Ron. The re-styling, details and workmanship is great.

 

Personally, that is one model that cannot be in my collection, as I have a very religious wife. When I was a kid(mid 1960's), most of my buddies built model cars. A friend of mine built a beautiful JoHan '66 Cadillac hearse. When he showed it to his mother, she shreaked something in Spanish, grabbed the model, and threw it out into the street, breaking it into pieces. After she had composed herself, she apologized for her actions, hugged her son, and gave him some cash to get another model to build. Needless to say, he never built another hearse model.

 

I woonder how it would look as a limo????

Ron,

 

As I was working on this I eyed it up as a limo. The Limo conversion would be even easier as you would not need to raise the roof or create the rear cargo door. Just cut two bodies in half and then glue them back together. Should be easy for a skilled guy like you!!

Very nice. And all done inside of three weeks. Thanks for posting the in progress/before paint picture. I always like seeing those for learning how to do stuff. 

 

If this was in a contest, it would bury the competition  :)
