    1929 Ford Roadster - Dan Gurney - Bonneville 1950
    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 posts

    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.

    Very well done weathering on a car that looks to have been ridden hard and put away wet!!??

    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.

    32 Ford Roadster - Ferrari V-12 powered
    The DEUCERRARI [the model really is very red but I have always had trouble capturing red digitally even with adjustments]

    Over the years there have been a fair number of Deuces powered by Ferrari V12’s.
    My version combines parts mainly from three kits;
    -         Revell of Germany [Italeri] Ferrari 250 GTO – engine/transmission, wire wheels, exhaust, taillights
    -         AMT Phantom Vickie – cowl & Duval windshield, chassis and running gear
    -         Revell Rat Roaster – body, fenders and interior
    ENGINE – Built box-stock but did convert to wet sump and added an alternator
    CHASSIS & SUSPENSION – Lengthened frame about a scale foot and removed front horns. The rear lowered by cutting one coil. Have temporarily left of steering rod so front wheels can be posed.
    WHEELS & TIRES – The GTO kit comes with very nice three-piece wire wheels with three different outer rims. I used the deep dish on the rear and narrowed versions of the non-dished on the front. Tires are Revell Deuce kit no-name big and littles.
    BODY – Used Phantom Vickie cowl. I made the hood from two hoods, widening one and narrowing the other and then joining them towards the middle. A Ferrariesque hood power bulge was made from a sectioned airplane drop-tank. The hood sides were made from sheet styrene to which I cut in a couple of GTO vertical vents and filled with black mesh. Out back the Phantom Vickie roll pan and Rat Roaster rear fenders were added. The front fenders are widened versions from the Rat Roaster. The paint is Testor’s Red lacquer. The Ferrari emblems are from E.JAN. The side mirror and gas cap are from the GTO.
    LIGHTS - The longer headlight buckets are from the Revell ’37 Ford Pickup Street-Rod while taillights are from the GTO.
    INTERIOR – I like the Rat Roaster interior except for all the circles on the door and rear panels so they have been removed. Diamond pattern upholstery was used in many early Ferraris and of course bucket seats are very appropriate. I installed a Ferrari gated shifter housing and a steering wheel more in keeping with the over-all theme. The dash is from the Phantom Vickie with bare Metal Foil. Interior paint is Testor’s Fabric Tan lacquer.

    Very realistic looking. Great to see one of these completed.
  15. Phildaupho added a post in a topic My version of the Revell '29 Ford Model A   

    Another very good looking and interesting personalized version of this great '29 kit. I really like your contemporary interpretation. The color works very well with the big diameter wheels and molded firewall.
