    Very interested in your wire wheels. More détails about them ?
    Like you I like pre-war models and i've a lot of them to build (like your Bugatti, Alfa-Romeo, Mercedes, etc ...)
    And for these models, I think you cannot avoid making your own wire wheels.

    Thank you for these very clear explanations Tapani.
    As I have an unbuilt Continental kit, perhaps I will buy the Zephyr body if available.
    Another question : wich car is it on the left of the second picture (dark red roadster) ?

    You say that Airtrax 1941 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe  fits the Monogram '41 Lincoln Continental kit.
    I'm surprised because I thought the Continental wheelbase was longer than the Zephyr wheelbase.
    So, how can it fit ?
    Or perhaps, am I wrong ?

    1936 Toyoda AA
    I just finished the 1936 Toyoda AA from Tamiya.
    First of all, no error in the name : "Toyoda" became "Toyota" only in 1937 (only to have a beter sound in japaneese language).
    For this realization, I have chosen the authentic color named "Haizakura" amongst the 3 colors which were available in 1936 for this car.
    I'm very satisfied with the paint which is not too shiny for those days.
    The building process is in the section " On the workbench ".

    Sorry, no Hot Rods for me. Only stock
    But you have many Hot Rods on this Forum
    As the radiator grille is transparent, its necessary to paint the plastic behind with flat black :
