    You're definitely doing the illustration justice. Looks great so far!

    Knowing who you are, your comment means a lot! I remember one of your models that Tim Boyd showed a picture of in his Modelers Corner from the earlier 90's. It was a blue 40's COE tanker truck with an actual plastic nose on the front and the tank said "Daisy" as in "daisy sniffing stance." Does that model still exist?

    Old Hemi's just look awesome covered in carburetors, don't they? Doesn't look like you're too far from the end, get on it!

    Good God, this is freaking rad! Excellent weathering effect on the body, Nailhead is a killer motor choice and the stance / proportions / rolling stock are perfect. 
    Fantastic work!

    Quick update. All of the chassis and engine parts are (for the most part) finish painted, ready for assembly. Hoping the 3-day weekend will afford me enough time to get it all glued together despite having visitors from out of state.

    Thanks again guys! I'm real happy to finally have this thing all fabbed out. Should be getting started on paint in a couple of weeks. I'm in the middle of getting my Deuce 3-window (also here on the Workbench)  painted and assembled right now.

    Right On!!!
    It just goes to show how a few basic changes can have a dramatic effect, It's nearly straight from the box, yet looks nothing like what's on the box.

    Nice!

    Thanks, guys! Glad you all are digging it. I'm looking forward to finally seeing this thing get shiny.

    When I last left off on this little guy (last November, 6 months ago!) it was very close to being ready for final prep for painting. It just needed a few hours worth of details worked out. Yesterday I got inspired to get back on it. 
    To wrap up the full-race ARDUN A engine I added some spark plug wire organizers to the side of the block and the edge of the valve cover. In addition I added a fuel line tee to the intake manifold, a fuel hose retaining tab to the frame rail, changed out the carburetors to a pair from Revell's Ed Roth Tweedy Pie (because they have those killer vintage scoops) and an oil dipstick.

    The other final fab work was building the steering linkage, making a floor filler panel (since the frame kit did not provide one, which is kind of lame because the yellow Mooneyes version of the frame kit does) and mounting a tachometer on top of the cowling. At this point after a lot of off and on and feet dragging, this little guy is finally fully fabbed and ready for final prep work to start the paint process.

    You've got my attention.

    To elaborate on Bernard's post, Chuck at Altered States or "oldmandowntheroad" on Ebay also offers a variation of the '27 Roadster body to fit the Monogram Slingster chassis. I used on of those but modified the center opening (wider, longer) to fit AMT's Double Dragster rail chassis.

    The mufflers in these Revell flathead-motored kits are representative of Smithy glass packs which have always come painted hammertone blue since the 40's. Definitely a correct traditional hot rod detail.

    For a straight out of the box model, this is about as nice as it gets! Beautiful early custom.

    The word filters won't let me accurately express how much I like this project! All fairly subtle changes that add up BIG.
