  1. Nice. Commander Convertible with Avanti power! It doesn’t get any better than that. 😎
  2. An excellently executed example of Glen’s creative talent! This one looks even better in person, believe me.
  3. JoHan kits are much like Trophy Wives: Great looking, excellent bodies, perfect proportions, but shallow inside, weak on the details, and overall very expensive.
  4. Wow, A.J.!!! Those are awesome builds. I’m jealous! Great work. Do you still have them, or are they in a museum?

    Coca Cola Kits ?

    Ever since the first Coke-branded kit was released, AMT AMT/Ertl has sold far more of these kits to Coca-Cola memorabilia collectors than to model builders.
  6. Ehhh, what's up, Doc? Looks good.
  7. Mark's right, Greg. The '34 cab is similar to the '32 cab and can easily be converted. The '32 - '34 cab is totally unlike the '30-'31 cab. Every component of the two series was completely different with the exception of one thing (which the kit does not include): the 4cyl engine of a '32 was visually the same as a '30-'31 4cyl engine. (The V8 in the kit is visually the same as Ford's V8 introduced in 1932. Makes sense because it was the same engine!) 1932 Fords (non-commercial) with the V8 engine were designated Model 18 vehicles. 1932 - 1934 Fords (non-commercial) with the 4cyl engine were referred to as Model B vehicles. 1933 - 1934 Fords (non-commercial) with the V8 engine were designated Model 40 vehicles. <> In practice, most people ignored Ford's designations and referred to all the 1932 - 1934 Ford passenger car based vehicles as 'Model B' although that was not Ford's intent. The AMT/Lindberg kit represents a passenger car-based Model 40 pickup. When the new V8 was introduced in 1932, Ford's passenger cars/light trucks shared the passenger car chassis, running gear, hood, cowl, running boards and fenders, etc. The 1929 - 1934 light pickups can be instantly identified as passenger car-based if they are equipped with wire wheels (the same wheels as the passenger cars). The commercial trucks (rated at 1-1/2 ton or 2-1/2 ton) were designated Model AA for 1928-1930 and Model BB for 1932-1934. From mid-year 1929, the AAs, BBs, and following years were equipped with heavy steel disc wheels. Their chassis and running gear were noticeably larger and heftier although they used the same engines as the passenger car line. [Note: In 1928 and the first quarter of 1929, Ford Model AA trucks were equipped with heavy duty wire wheels - not interchangeable with the passenger car wire wheels.]
  8. Uh yup. It didn’t work too well that way. Fixed it - should work now. Thanks for catching that, Mike!l
  9. Well, be sure to keep us posted. I have enough projects to last a couple of lifetimes, but this is probably a gotta-have.
