    Gunze/Mr Hobby Beetle (1956 oval) has those hub caps. Also Hasegawa Type 2 panel van and pickup kits have similar hub caps.

    1955 Ford F-100
    This is a Revell/Monogram 55 Ford I've build few years ago. I made front and rear rolled pans and converted the kit interior to tuck'n roll using Plastruct styrene sheet.
    Steering wheel is from Monogram 58 T-bird and gear stick is a pin. Taillights are from AMT 49 Mercury.
    Engine is from Monogram 58 T-bird. Blower, carbs and aircleaners are from my parts box. I painted those with Alclad chrome.
    Wheels and tires are from AMT Black Force snapper. Paint is Revell of Germany Car Metallic enamel.

    Blower is from my parts box. Tires are AMT and Johan. Wheels are AMT.
    I used Humbrol Enamel paints and MIG pigments.

    Hello from Finland
    Hi!

    I've been here for a while but I think it's time tell you something about me.
    So I'm from Finland and my name is Tuomas Seppälä. It's like Thomas Smith in english.
    I was born in the good old 60's. I begun model car building in 70's with Airfix 1/32 kits and Monogram kits.
    Actually Monogram "Cop Out" was my first 1/24 kit. I have one unbuild waiting for a nostalgic moment ; )
    I like to build hot rods and kustoms but also 50's- 60's european cars in lightly tuned way.
    The guys from Air-Trax are my friends and that's why I have quite a many their kits in my achive waiting for buildup.
    I think this forum is really great place so keep up goin' Gregg!
