    Thanks Bernard. As mentioned up the thread. I was lucky - The latches came from my spare parts box but I am pretty sure they were from a Revell tube-frame era Camaro TranAm racecar kit.

    I finally have a model of my own to post based on the wonderful Revell ’29 Ford Roadster kit.
    This model is a tribute to Dan Gurney’s first sanctioned competition drive in his friend Skip Hudson’s ‘29 Ford at Bonneville in 1950. If you want to learn more about the real car and model build details please see my On The Workbench and Under Glass posts

    The latches came from my spare parts box but I am pretty sure they were from a Revell tube-frame era Camaro TranAm racecar kit. They sort of capture the look of lunch box latches which were commonly used on hot-rod hoods.

    Could not resist checking this out and was surprised at how much I like it. I wonder if there are other General Lee versions out there??

    Briefly I channeled the Revell ‘29 Roadster over the kit Deuce frame. It now has a Model-A rear cross-member supporting a buggy sprung quickchange rear-end. The flathead engine is from the Revell ‘48 Ford Coupe with the three-carb set up and front cover from the ’32 Sedan. The blue is a blend of Testor’s enamels – Arctic Blue metallic and Pontiac Engine Blue. The interior is Tamiya Racing White and Flat Clear. The side numbers are hand painted acrylic flat white on clear decal film. The tonneau cover is painted masking tape. The license and club plaque are internet images. It appears license plates were much wider in 1950.
    I eventually plan to convert the model to street trim as it appeared on the first color cover of Hot Rod – April 1951.

    Thanks everyone for your positive comments. I think I am getting better capturing red digitally. Next time hopefully my posted red models will look red from the start!!

    This photo was taken outside. I played around with camera settings and then made adjustments with Photoshop. This is as red as I could get it.

    Thanks Mitch. It is getting there. Under natural light the paint is very red but definitely has an orange hue which is more apparent under lights. It is kind of a dull day but I am going to try an outdoor shot and see how that looks.

    A beautiful Deuce in all respects. You should consider a trip west in the summer and bring it to Deuce Days in Scale in Victoria July 24 - see link below.
