    Cool... Haven't seen this kit built before. Nice detailing

    Well done! I like the snappers to build as well, helps break the burn-out on the big detail builds.

    Spex84 - Thank you for the nice comments. Yeah, I followed the Rat's Glass style with a 32 grill though. The windshield is hand-cut and set in flush to the body.
     
     
    Thank you and a well received compliment from a master craftsman
     
     
    Thank you sir..  Coil-overs are from the kit, I used Aluminum Plate and buffed with platinum buffed in between the springs

    Thanks! The wheels are actually out of an old AMT Matador kit. The rears are Pegasus 19" sleeves to give the bigger deeper look.
    I chose them because the shape of the openings are matched to the shape of the side window area.

    32 Ford Phantom Vicki - Custom Coupe
    Something I just finished last week -
    My highly customized build of the 32 Phantom Vicki kit. 
    As you can compare the box art, I added side engine panels, filled in the rear wheel wells to be smooth, channeled the body over the chassis, chopped the front grill-shell, made the grill insert with wire, chopped the kits convertible top and molded it in to the body as a coupe.
    Filled in the rear panel and added a fuel-cell filler.
    Custom interior panels
    The motor is a cross-ram injected set-up. 
    Paint is Duplicolor Platinum on top, with a fine orange body-line stripe above the Electric Current Red.

    Yes, a hand mastered one that Modelhaus offered. I have both the HT and I built the convertible as a tribute to one my dad owned for many years, I grew up with the 67 GP's Here's the one I built of the 67 GP
