    Really like this build! Even with your resin-release issues, the paintwork looks fantastic!  You do very clean work; what's not to like!

    Love this build!  That color-scheme is unusual and awesome!

    Pics opened-up perfectly for me.  You did alot of work to this build and it shows!  A very nice build with some excellent custom body work done!  I've never seen a Shoebox Ford done in quite this same style, and I like it!

    AFX: Thanks for the recommendation.  I'm probably looking to go with a rollbar that has rear-facing support legs on it.  I'd like to keep the passenger seat in my build, and there's quite a bit of room behind the seats for rear-facing support legs to be fit in.

    Looking for some random 1/25 parts
    I have two new projects that I'm getting started on, and each project has some parts needs.
    My newly-reissued 1/25 AMT Sunbeam Tiger will be built as a race car.  It needs a single-hoop roll bar, (a fairly small one as the interior on the Tiger is pretty narrow), and I'd like to find a Fire Extinguisher to also put inside its cockpit.
    My 1/25 AMT 1978 Ford "Firestone" Pickup will be the Tiger's tow vehicle, but I want to build it as a short-box pickup, which means I'll need Part #118, the Cargo Box Floor and also Part #75, the Left/Driver's-side Inner Wall for the Cargo Box.  I could also use a nicely-detailed Brake Reservoir for the firewall and some big-block Ford V-8 Exhaust Headers for the kit's engine.
    If possible, I'd prefer these parts be new-from-the-tree, but they can be from a built-up if they are in good, reuseable condition.  I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from.  Thanks!

    Revell 1/25 '32 Ford wheels and tires wanted
    I am looking to trade for the (4) 1/25 Goodyear tires and 5-spoke, chrome mag and inner-wheels found inside the Revell 1932 Ford 3-window Coupe Street Rod kit(s). The original 3-window coupe kit Revell issued with these tires and wheels was kit #85-7605, and showed a 1:1 Black car on the box art. These tires and wheels have appeared in several reissues of this kit, including reissues that could be built as a 5-window Coupe, and also a '32 Sedan.
     
    I would prefer these to be fresh-from-the-tree, or from a built-up if they are in good, reuseable condition. I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from. Thanks!

    I really like this build!  As others have already posted; you nailed the look and originality on this build!

    Wow, that is an amazing save!  Nicely done!  How'd you get those chrome-plated headlights to look so good?
  15. '70 Grande added a post in a topic Sunbeam Tiger reissue questions   

    The new decal sheet looks great! I guess they ran out of room for numbers "8" and "9" on it tho!
    Those are the vintage tires from previous issues of this kit. Sadly, their tread pattern is so pronounced that they look more like off-road tires to my eye.  Sure would like to see some new sports car racing tires produced by a kit maker some day soon!
