Here's one for ya Jon, an "A V-8" IMG_5903.jpgprobable a "Gow Job" too.  :lol:

Looks much like the one we found in a neighboring field and bought for $5 around 1965. Only it was just a body :)

I just call it the  "Early Ford Hot Rod Group" for example the :Kookie Car" 31 A frame ,22 T body and a 32 B grill shell (shortened) :)

Let's see: of the kits shown, I've had the AMT '29 roadster (channeled on '32 rails; dismantled long ago but still have the body); the Revell '30 sedan (way too fiddly for me to get the body together when I was 12); the Monogram '30 Phaeton twice (still have a stock early built-up); the AMT '28 sedan and '29 woody/pickup (as yet unbuilt), and three Hubleys (sedan when I was 11 - finished it! - and unbuilt phaeton and Victoria that I'll probably end up building because no one else wants them...). Really liked the Monogram kit best for building.

Has anyone built the '29 woody or '28 sedan and had any issues with them?

The old Pyro kit - they also made a '30 woody but I don't think it's been reissued.

Here's two more A's I didn't see on here or at least different box art.   Nice thread Greg.IMG_6678_zps69bf2c1c.jpgIMG_6680_zps9e2dc719.jpg

Uhm, Ron....

 

That Sedan Delivery is a 1926 Model T, not a Model A (one giveaway is that Model A Ford production did not begin until early December 1927--and then as a 1928 Ford.

what I would like to see is an analysis of those never ending just a little bit different from last time or maybe not even reissues that probably make up 90% of the majors offering. sort of a family tree of the model a from say AMT Revell Lindberg and that would probably be that. it would probably also boil down 100 "offerings" into 5 or so basic tools with little extras here and there and maybe a non-reversable tool change midstream or two.

I'm pretty certain there was a Highway Pioneers 1903 Ford; that one would have been approximately 1/32 scale.

Yes,

 

Revell produced the Gowland & Gowland 1/32 scale 1903 Model A, beginning about 1951.

Most intriguing model A kit I've come across. I got this for Christmas or a birthday in the late fifties.

Hey Greg, I'm working on this one right now, Revell kit from 1973 B) !

It's been fighting me all the way :lol: 

I bought this at a garage sale last year along with a few other old kits!
