Sanitary execution. The basic metallic red you chose and those VRM decals take this build to another level. Very nice indeed!

You mean like this one?

That's a '25 T. The body is quite different with the bucket portion sharply defined and separate from the turtle deck. The result is a car with a significantly different look to it, with less potential for a sleek, streamli9ned look as seen on some of the track nose examples illustrated above.

I have no answer to that question.

 

Yes Wayne, that's a '27T roadster, the ultimate  hot rod IMHO. Slugging my way through my Highboy model as I am  right now, based on the ubiquitous resin body that's out there, it's a real challenge scratchin' and adaptin' my way to completion. This is my second '27 T roadster model and I could sure do with a kit to start from!

 

I have had a few conversations with a very reputable resin caster and quite possibly he may be able to come up with a few key parts for us (windshield frame, interior bits, etc.). Fingers crossed!

Thanks for another great review. Having missed the majority of Model Kit History when I opted out of model building as an adult, I love this stuff. While these sorts of cars may not be my thing the history of model kit developments and the efforts these companies made over the years to bring us quality kits is something well worth reading about. Thanx For Filling In The Blanx!

 

Looking forward to the next one,
B.
