  1. Making progress. It came apart easily as the orange colored glue had become very weak. I think I'll keep the fenders not his one and go for a two tone paint scheme (no rust this time). This neat club plaque was hiding inside the body of the kit.

  3. Got this nice older AMT '29 Model A on eBay for $4. Body was brush painted, the other parts that were painted were brush painted, but with acrylics it looks like. All the pieces are there except the front bumper. What should I do with this?
  4. We're going to call this parts box 32 Ford done (except gluing the steering wheel in). Thanks for looking. New firewall, floor, and interior tub was made from sheet styrene and Wee Scapes Corrugated Siding. Wood is wood grain adhesive backed wallpaper. Seats are Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland P-86 1/25 "Rat Rod" Seats. Rear tires are old Stevens International 902 whitewalls. New windows are just clear plastic.
  5. I can't remember how to switch a topic I created from WIP to Under Glass. Can anyone refresh my memory?
  6. This can be moved to Under Glass

  7. Ok, final update before it's done: Got the bomber seats painted and made a small wood platform for them to sit on. They may sit a little bit too far back, but that's fine. Flathead engine was painted with Rust-O-Leum's Leafy Green spray. I swapped out the wheels for a set of wire wheels from an older AMT 32 Ford kit that was in the parts box. I also swapped out the rear tires. I had AMT piecrust slicks, but I think these Stevens International 902 whitewalls look must better (they're impossible to find now, which is a shame). Stevens International 902 whitewalls If anyone recognizes where these headlights came from, I'd love to have about 100 sets of them.
  8. Update: I cut a piece of square styrene stock in half diagonally and mounted to sections, one on each side of the rails to keep the new "wood" floor in place. The body will be channelled over the frame, so neither the wood floor or the styrene stock will be visible. The frame got a nice coat of Navy Aggressor Gray. The shifter and gear box cover have been added to the floor. I've also switched out the steelie wheels for the a set of AMT 32 Ford wire wheels. I broke on of them trying to get the axle attached. I didn't remember them being so fragile. Luckily, I have a replacement for it. The interior tub has been painted and the scale sheet metal panels attached. Added some rust to the hood and radiator shroud (there's a brand new radiator inside it). The trimmed down dashboard now fits perfect inside the cabin and has been painted red.I'll add a little final detailing before assembly. Bomber seats from Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland (the best you'll find, hands down) have been painted flat aluminum. They may get a little rust treatment. Lastly, the styrene firewall I fabricated has been painted and attached to the body. I like the idea of having a bit of old, bit of new on this build. It's how I imagine someone would build a real vehicle.
  9. Quick update: Been throwing some salt, paint, and rust at this and am happy at this point. The idea is that the hood and radiator shroud are from a different vehicle. I'll paint the rear and part of the sides with some Testors dullcote to remove some of the sheen.I may also swap out the steelies for the old AMT 32 Ford wire wheels.
  10. So here's how the Navy Aggressor Gray paint came out. I think it may need sanding, another salting, then another coat of paint. Rough, ain't it? Maybe a little too rough for a 1:1 representation.
  11. I got a couple things I'd been wanting... Luckily they got delivered while the wife wasn't looking. I got this unbuilt Jo-Han Plymouth Fury in it's box for about the price of a new kit. I built this '62 Plymouth as a kid and wanted to try it again (and not paint the exhaust orange and the firewall red and the etc etc). The seller thought it may have been a resin repro, and I thought it may have been also at first, but Its' not; there's just a good bit of flash on some of the parts. As a Model A nut, I was psyched to find this open, but complete kit for less than $100 + free shipping. Yes, I'm going to build it.
  12. Update: Coming along. Going to go with Model Master Navy Aggressor Gray for the body, and frame, with red accents.The idea for this build, as with a lot of my parts box builds, is to make something that looks like what a young man might have built had he had a little money and a little time to spend. There will be some rust around the "weld" area where the roof was chopped (added before painting), some rust under the fender wells, and some old, previous paint that shows through.
