    Gorgeous looking model! Looks great from all angles. Nicely done!

    There is a radiator in the kit, kind of, but it is not very detailed. Take your time and think out how to do the roof. I glued mine on and fixed the horrible fitment issue. I then cut out the cab floor and put the interior side panels in through the bottom. I then glued the cut out floor piece back in. Good luck on your build!

    I agree with you about the rear tires. I just used what was in the kit as this was going to be a quick build. You would need much wider tires to accurately replicate the real car.
  4. This was meant to be a quick build. It turned out that it took a little longer than I had planned. The frame was badly twisted. There is a lot of flash on the chrome pieces. The biggest problem was the fit of the roof piece to the cab. It just doesn't fit. Look at other built examples of this kit and you will see what I mean. I spent a lot of time getting the roof to look right. Lots of filling and filing. Here is the kit that I used. Here is the final result.
  5. Hobby shops in Pittsburgh, Pa

    Hobby Express and Auto Models LLC are both great. Hobby Express has tons of goodies. I can spend hours in there. I have spent a gazillion dollars with John at Auto Models. There is nowhere, that I have found, with better prices than John. One word of caution. Check with John at Auto Models before going to his store. He goes to a lot of contests as a vendor and his store hours are hit and miss sometimes.

    I've said this many time on several forums, I love your work, John. I don't comment near enough because I'm running out of superlatives for your models!

    Great looking model! Originally, I did not like theses cars but over the years I have warmed up to them. Your model just bumped that up a notch.

    Very cool, indeed! You gotta love these old show rods, and when they're as nice as this one, what's not to love!?! Nice job! It put a smile on my face.
