    regency era street rod
    This is something I wanted to do since I first saw Ray Fahner's wake wagon,1970?so it's a tribute I guess.started with amt raiders coach,narrowed,shortened,built doors,filled windows,made new windows,set on a revell t frame that was extended front and rear.Everything else is pretty much scratch built,engine is small block ford from revell(detailed)trans is aod also from revell,nine inch ford from amt nascar(modified),this is all plastic with the exception of the grill.questions and comments welcome thanks for looking johnz

    thanks to for the comments.jeff the body was first painted the color thats on the frame then a used laundry dryer sheet was stretched over it,then it was airbrushed with decanted testers emerald green,removed the dryer sheet airbrushed all the edges with the same green then just a bit of black around the furthest edges,clear and rub it out.
