    This going to be one very nice Deuce Coupe

    Now that is a good looking hot rod. Very nicely done Tim. This really is a great kit because it allows the modeller to either built a very nice hot rod straight from the box or to modify it and create their own version.

    FRONT SUSPENSION– As mentioned previously the front spring was reduced in thickness and mounted closer to the axle. The front shocks are from the ’29 kit trimmed, modified and mounted up-side-down. I attached the kit headlight mounts to a fabricated shock bracket.
    REAR SUSPENSION -Once the front ride height was established I was able to install the Model-A rear cross member and transverse spring. The spring/shock brackets were modified from the coil spring brackets from the ’29 kit. The rear radius rods are the extra front rods from the ’29 kit. The AMT ‘25 Model T kit also provided the rear shocks. The drive shaft is modified from the REV/MON 1/24 Deuce.
    I decided to reduce the amount of chrome on the car so the tie rod and radius rods were de-chromed.
    REAR WHEELS & TIRES – Used extra set of fronts on rear for Bonneville version
    ENGINE – The exhaust system and carbs are set up for the Bonneville version. Because I choose to use a three carb manifold like was used by the real car, I had to use an off-set generator which is going to make running the radiator hose on the right side a challenge.

    This will be the final On the Workbench update.

    Iconic. Great job on painted stripes. They really enhance the look.

    I like both of your Cobras very much but this "polished" one has the ultimate WOW factor.

    Really nice to see a 300SL build especially a roadster. Great looking model of a great looking car.  I have had this kit along with every Gullwing kit available for years. It is about time I built one. Canada's new Prime Minister has a 300SL roadster he inherited from his father. It was restored here in Victoria by one of the top 300SL restorers whose shop I have visited so I have few excuses.

    You did a real fine job on your 29 and I really like the flipper hubcaps

    Looking very attractive. One of the first and in my opinion one of the best looking super cars. I especially like the higher rear winged TWR racing version.
