Do any of you think this could be taken apart and rebuilt into a mild street rod/machine Nomad?  It's the only 1/2 scale Nomad out there as far as I know, and I've played with the idea of converting one of the Monogram coupes, but the whole rear tailgate and window arrangement would be almost impossible to replicate.

AMT did one in 1/16 if that's of any interest.

 

 

Yes, I have one of those and the '55 Nomad.  Both really nice kits.  I'd like to build one in 1/12 though.....just to go with the coupe I've already done and a convertible that's been wip for about 10 years. ;)
