Hello,
I'm a newbie here; I'm familiar with Buick model 14's.
The scale version you built (nice job!) is sometimes refered to as the model 14A. There is also a slightly
different variant, the model 14B. It has the exterior mounted rear gas tank, straight rear fenders,
wooden dashboard/ firewall and shorter runningboards.
Thanks,
Joe Kieliszek

Great job Harry. Taking a "simple" kit like this and adding the detail and textures as you did exemplifies the difference between the larger scales and the 1/25s or such.

I disagree with a prior poster with the idea of abolishing this "big boys" thread.

But if you ever do spark plug cables like these on a 1/25th "simple" kit, please use UPPER case on your title. I wouldn't want to miss it.

I don't think I can get my fingers to work that small!  :lol:

Harry, I am trying for one of these listed on eBay..........and I am so impressed with your build of this little jewel.......but I hate to admit what I am wanting this kit for.    Want the lights, wheels and white tires f/a 1903 Caddy :rolleyes: .

I will build the kit @ a later date using the parts replaced from the Caddy kit.

I think it's absolutely ridiculous to have to post this work in progress in a weird "Big Boyz" thread where many members will miss it and be able to comment on it. There is zero need for a "Big Boyz" thread and it should be abolished, and be incorporated into the general Workbench and under Glass topics. But, just like the many people who think there should be a simple "Competition" category instead of NASCAR, Drag Cars, etc., that would include all racing genres, I know that this thought will go totally ignored.

I agree with both points Skip, I think these changes would get more people into other genres which can't be bad. Is there a man who can, Harry (subject to a members poll of course)?

 

BTW almost forgot to add - another museum class model I reckon, Harry!

Thanks, Don.

 

Gregg wants large scale models separated from the rest. Don't really know why, but it's his forum.
