    Monogram '48 Ford Convertible
    After having this model sitting in my stash for a number of years, I was going to start it last year, but the death of my mother kind of knocked the stuffing out of me, so modelling just seemed to be put on hold, fast forward and having managed to catch up on all my photography work, I dragged myself back into the hobby room, thinking of what to build next, i did look at a few models but decided it was time this one got started, over the last few days I've made quite a good start on it, one thing that puzzles me though is the dashboard, the instructions say to do it to replicate it in  wood, which tio me would make sense, as even cars this side of the pond would have had a wooden dashboard for that period of cars, however, people that know me would know that I build models to replicate a car that has just been pulled off the factory line and popped into a dealers showroom, doing a quick search on Google has brought up a few photo's that either show the dash in a light wood colour, even found one that has the dash in a darker wood and a few even show the dash in body colour, now before i get all the body colour parts ready for their paint, which would be correct for a 1948 Ford that has just come off the end of the production line ??



    Anyway, now to the model, so far the body has been prepared for it primer coat after having the firewall fitted, which shows it on the instructions being fitted after the body had been painted and a few things fitted to it, such as the motor for the roof, but after doing a dry run, these parts can easily be fitted afterwards, so the firewall was glued and clamped into place

    The engine has been built up as far as I can before it needs a coat of Ford engine blue, 

    The bonnet (Sorry, Hood) needed a little sanding to get it to fit flush

    A few parts ready for primer

    Roof top dry fitted, not sure which I'll use yet, top up or down, I will prepare both and decide when it's finished

    As you can't build the chassis up as one unit and paint it all together, I'm building as much as i can, such as the front and rear axles, there only held onto the chassis with clamps until the glue to hold the steering linkage and the sway bars are fitted to the axle, which can then be painted as a complete unit, it makes for a stronger and better looking joint

    After working away from home and a recent vacation I've missed a lot of posts, including this one, I'm so sorry to hear this sad news Harry, and I'm sure with the correct medication and a strong will, you can beat this and be back living a normal life as soon as possible, stay strong my friend .....

    I had to have an MRI a few years ago, apparently I'm the only patient they've even had that fell asleep while having the scan, they stopped the scan half way through, as they detected my heart rate and breathing were slowing down, after they found out I was OK, they carried on with the scan ....

    Revell Trabant 601s in Glacier Blue
    Finally got this one finished this morning, after building three different Trabant's, I'm going to have a break from them, and probably won't be going back in the hobby room for a while, as I'm just too busy with my photography
    It was painted in genuine Trabant Glacier blue, not the best paint I've ever worked with, but at least it authentic to the original 1:1

    Front & rear bumpers finished, the reflectors of the spot & fog lamps were covered in BMF to replicate the chrome reflectors, the left hand rear fog lamp looks like it is cracked in half, it isn't, it's just the way it was molded.

    Sure, I used all Revell enamels thinned for airbrushing, Satin Wood Brown (RAL 8001) for the door cards and seat backs & sides, Revell Satin # 381 for the seat faces (Front & Rear) and Matt # 88 for the floor and rear parcel shelf, before the flocking was applied.

    After sitting on the computer editing photo's for what seemed like a lifetime, this morning I actually managed to get into the hobby room, (To take a break from work) although not a lot of work got done, but the front & rear bumpers were masked up and airbrushed the satin black parts
