Here is the only reference picture I had to go by so a lot of it was guessing on colors and what the covered up partial words were. But I did do some research and they could be feasible.
This was the drivers service station.
And this was his teammates car. Only the rear fenders were a color other than black on this one but seem to match the rear fender color of the 21 car.. The trunk, roof and hood were black on the 14. I think the driver wanted to match the color of the Amoco logo which was red and black back in 1940.
Looks awesome. Now put some tires on that baby. Totally understand about the white and orange dulling on you and having to go ahead and polish the red as well, That's one of the reasons I don't use Tamiya anymore. If I'm going to have to polish anyway I just use model master acryl with my airbrush and save some money. Also I found that when I masked Tamiya and removed the tape it left an imprint of the tape on the Tamiya paint. It doesn't do that with acryl.
Looks awesome. The paint and detail is excellent. The model makers could have done us a big favor if they had made a 39 ford standard coupe as well as the 40. The 39 was used a lot more as a race car back in the day then the 40 was. I'm in the process of changing a 40 into a 38/39. The front half of the car is a 38 deluxe coupe and the back half is a 39 standard coupe. I guess the car was a 39 that got wrecked and they replaced the front sheet metal with 38 hood and grille. I hope to be finishing it up in a few weeks.
