    Exceptional engineering, fabrication and execution. Really looking forward to the final result.

    There are going to a lot of very cool hot rod models built in the near future as a result of the availability of this kit. Thanks Tim for guiding us through from start to finish and the final result is one sweet looking roadster.

    Tim - you nailed the engine - hit it right on the head!! Great to see the AMT hood fits at the cowl as it can help form a scratch-built hood if required. Also really like the finned oil pan, valley cover etc.

    Another nailhead to study that was spotted at a car show today.

    As always, thanks Tim for your excellent review. I hope I do not have to wait long to unwrap my own kit. I am looking forward to seeing how a Deuce grill shell, hood and hood sides will fit both versions and which flathead will work best.

    Sharp looking custom. Really like your color choice. I have always thought the 41 front end to be the most attractive of the fat-fendered Fords

    Good on ya Curt. You built a fabulous model and it is fantastic that you gave it to Tony A. I am sure he will treasure it. I have had a few similar experiences and found them to be very rewarding. Congratulations.

    Very promising I must say. The tan color of the body makes it look resin but the shape looks like it is AMT!!??

    Spectacular build of a beautiful car. I have had one of these kits in my closet for years which I hope to build someday. I am really enjoying the resurgence of interest in building models of classic cars.

    Hello Wayne - This is the Revell kit. I attached the fenders to the frame before painting to make test fitting everything easier. After painting will just have to dull coat the running boards,

    I completed the engine first so I could accurately locate the opening in the hood to clear the air-cleaner. During assembly I noticed in addition to showing the heads upside down, the instructions also show the exhaust manifold flanges upside down and the oil filter does not have a notch as shown.

    Very nice. I especially like the engine compartment and plaid seats. I assume there is right hand steering option. I had a red 1980 Canadian GTI badged as a Rabbit. It was basically a standard fuel injection 5-speed with the European looking body trim and interior. It was a great little car. Mine had a sunroof, Scirocco style alloy wheels and two mirrors
