“A-Steel” - 1930 Ford Coupe – chopped & channelled

Yesterday, 03:11 PM

A-Steel - 1930 Ford Coupe chopped & channelled
I combined a stock Monogram 1/24 30 Ford Coupe and used hot-rod parts from the Revell 1/24 30 Ford Woody Street Rod 2n1 and my parts box
- Top chopped about 3.5 scale inches
- Body work intentionally has imperfections like it still needs work before it gets a paint job
- Chassis Zd about 3.25 scale inches in front and 5.5 inches in the rear. Also gained some additional lowering of front and rear springs
- Keep chrome to a minimum until funds are saved to pay the chrome shop
- I went with a bare steel finish using Metalizer paint steel over burnt metal
- Before final attachment of the red Kelsey-Hayes wire-wheels, just for fun I tried three other wheel designs original wheels, chrome reverse and big diameter

I finished this just in time for the Woody Theme Class at my local  model show. For under construction photos and info check my posy On the Workbench
http://www.modelcars...topic=92220&hl=

My objective other than building the Speedwagon as a ’34 rather than a Deuce was to stay true to the original Thom Taylor design and Dan Fink build. I was surprised at the lack of detail photos of the real car on the Internet. An image search results mainly in photos of scale models.
A few areas I changed from the kit to get closer to the real design and car are the addition of
- roof rail fabricated with Evergreen styrene rod painted with Alclad
- engine fan and radiator cowl
- blue interior trim
- instrument panel painted interior color with gold trim and white faced gauges
Paint – The blue is acrylic enamel I had previously had mixed at an automotive paint shop but Tamiya Blue proved to be a good match. Testor’s “Wood” was used for the Woody frames and Testor’s Flat Sand for the interior.  The wood panels are the kit decals. The Woody parts and dash where clear coated.

59 "Rumbler" Wagon with Woody panels - 2 versions

20 August 2014 - 01:50 PM

I have been on a Woody kick lately with three under construction. I came across the great decal sheet from the Johan 59 Rambler I built a few years ago and decided to give it a change.
