In Topic: Monogram '32 Ford Street Rod Classic Cruiser

Actually, Don, Darryl Starbird built the 1:1 in 1964 and Monogram created the Big Deuce kit later from the full-sized rod. The Little Deuce came along even later as an effort to capture more of the modeling market from kids who couldn't afford the 1/8 scale Big Deuce. Both kits were quite popular.

I believe it was the Big T that was designed by Starbird for the Monogram 1/8 scale kit before they commissioned him to build the corresponding 1:1 rod for promotional purposes.

Kit goes together awesome, and is beautifully detailed. The only thing i remember is be very careful with the fitment of the front clip. If it's angled slightly up or down the hood wont fit. But get it right and the hood fits perfect.

Norm IS the best. Great guy, great businessman, great hobby historian, and a great builder too.

BTW, I'm always looking for good pics of his stuff to add to my album. Trying to make it THE place to see his stuff online since he has no time to make and maintain a website of his own. PM me if you can help.
