I'm looking for the rear bobbed fenders for an AMT '32 ford. I'm thinking from the American Graffiti deuce coupe or the Vicky kit. I have a fairly ample supply of spare parts to trade. Let me know what you want. Thanx in advance.
Beautiful Build. Love the stance. One thing bothers me though. I've seen this many times before, but the class designation seems to be for a supercharged car. If I'm not mistaken, that's what the "S" stands for. Am I wrong on this?
I think it's some kind of brougham type of body. Maybe it's factory or a custom one off. I dont know enuf about old Fords of the period. I just know that I like it. I also like the old big truck in the background. Looks like a Chebby.
A real car is made up of many individual parts & naturally each one has it's own color & texture. I've found that the easiest way to detail a model is with paint. On a typical chassis I may use up to a dozen different colors to emphasize these different components. Steering linkage, shocks, springs, traction bars, driveshaft, axles, etc can all be highlighted with some simple color variation. With todays metalizer finishes this is much easier than you might think. It all depends on how much time you want to put into a project. The same holds true for all the subassemblies. Engines will really pop if you pick out the various colors of the parts that make one up.
When I was a kid my uncle Dave lived next door & he raced an AH Bugeye Sprite. He would drive my aunt crazy by rebuilding his motors on the kitchen table every winter & use up all her cupcake pans to hold various parts (nuts, bolts, springs, etc). He took my cousins & I to Elkhart Lake when the track first opened back in the early '60s & I have been going back there every year since. I still recall the time he decided to use aircraft fuel during practice at the June Sprints. The ensuing fire became the topic of conversation at family gatherings for years after.
