cdansie added a topic in Model Building Questions and AnswersKit historians help pleaseHi all
I have been contacted by someone looking for information on an old model from their childhood.
This what he wrote
When I was a kid (late 60's) I had a plastic model of a Model T track roadster. I'm pretty sure I inherited it already built. It had a speedway nose, and a turtle deck. The only other things I can recall are that it was dark blue plastic, and had a white drawing on the doors of a couple dancing and the words "Lindy Hop".
Can anyone identify the kit . It sounds like an old Lindberg or Aurora kit

Seems they are use a 30/31 body this time. That's a shame as far as I'm concerned. I would have preferred the 28/29 A coupe

cdansie added a topic in Under GlassMy tribute to the 40 turning 75 this yearThe magazines and internet are full of references to the 40 Ford turning 75 this year so I pulled out a 40 Ford Coupe kit and set about building it.
I started with the Good-guys issue of Revell's 40 Standard Coupe and a left over 40 Convertible body from my parts box.
After separating the two front clips I added the Deluxe front to the Standard Coupe's body and used the Deluxe hood.
Most of the rest of the kit is built straight from the box. I modified a pair of rear discs from a Revell 32 Ford so that I could keep the excellent 40 Ford backing plates for another project.
I substituted a seat from a Revell 32 3W for the stock buckets
Paint is Testors Turquoise and BMF was used for the trim

cdansie added a topic in Under Glass30 Model A HighboyHere's one I finished just after Christmas. Monogram 30 A Coupe on Revell 5W chassis with a few Rat Roaster parts thrown in 32 frame was bobbed in the rear and a shortened 32 gas tank was used upside down to create a kind of rolled pan effect. Interior framing added to the body and was detail painted. Interior is largely Rat Roaster (Seats, dash and shifter). Brakes are resin finned front from The Parts Box and Revell Tweedy Pie rear. I removed the air bags and lowered the rear and front suspensions. Paint is Revell Semi Gloss black with a bit of extra Flat Black added Chris

Paint is Tetsors One Coat Lime Ice for the exterior and White Lightning for a pearl-look interior I removed the rear airbags for an earlier look and substituted Replicas & Miniatures finned drums and early Ford backing plates for the discs I went for the all paint look that I saw on a car on the internet Chris
