    33/36 Coupe
    Time to start (or drag out a started) new project. This is a build KK and I started about 3 years ago when I was up at his place. We took the AMT 1936 five window coupe, hacked off the greenhouse and grafted on the chopped 3 window greenhouse from the AMT 1936 coupe. So, now I am attempting to get this going again. I made some relief cuts in the rear trunk area and tucked the trunk in a bit to give it a more '32 look (done in 1:1 scale by Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop). I have been mocking up a blown Y-Block engine for it. The plan is to make the front end somewhat '36ish by using '36 hood sides (from the Revell kit) and the AMT custom grille piece which will be heavily modified to look somewhat like a track nose...stay tuned...   -RRR (& KK)

    Alright, alright, alright... I haven't been building too much as the summertime craziness took over for a few weeks. I'm happy to report I am back on it now after some real life (and death) kicked in for a bit. The belly tanker is now ready for the paint booth. I have been finishing up all of the "fiddly bits" (to quote our friend Bryce form Oz). Steering, exhaust, controls (pedals and such), not really worthy of too much picture taking and showing. Here are all of the parts before they go for a quick bath, in the dehydrator to dry off and then primer paint. This will be done as a "barn find" dry lakes racer, so it will be weathered and such....stay tuned... -RRR

    I have a complete collection of the original issue Revell Parts Packs that I collected over several years. Not sure what it's worth, but as a set, worth some dough (to the right person). http://public.fotki.com/jferren/revell-parts-packs/ -RRR
