    Brian is a favorite of mine.
    the Deuce is one of the coolest.
    hope to get some serious time in on this this weekend.
    so many options with this kit!
    i may buy another and try to do the Milner car.

    Switchblade 327
    Revelle 32 deuce coupe...
    build inspired by the Swicthblade 327 car previously owned by Brian Setzer...
    though Setzers was a chop top, i never did that kind of work before.

    hey there
    modeling mostly figure kits for 10 years.
    bought the Revell '34 street rod snap kit in July, in the middle of the 41 willys, and priming a 32 5 window.
    it keeps me busy.
