    Kit historians help please
    Hi 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
    Thanks
    Chris

    Revells next release from the Model A Roadster tool - a 30/31 Coupe
    Just saw this on a site talking about Revell and the models hobby
    http://craftsmanship.net/parts-recreation/

    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


    Cropped and enlarged image from same linked article:

    Just when you think it is safe to go back into the hobby shops, Revell springs this on us!!
    WELL DONE Revell and all involved.
    Like the 32 Fords I'll be stocking up on a few of these for kitbashing material

    I'm pretty excited about this one

    Thanks for all the info Tim

    My tribute to the 40 turning 75 this year
    The 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

    Thanks for the kind words

    The rear tires are Goodyear Wranglers from the AMT kits like the 1997 Ford Explorer. I shave the Goodyear Wrangler lettering off and they pass for dirt trackers in my eye
    I bought a bunch of the Explorer kits very cheaply a few years ago.
    I'm sure they were in the Blazer kits of that period too

    30 Model A Highboy
    Here'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

  13. cdansie added a post in a topic Chopped 32 Tudor   

    The body came from Scalemodelling by Chris - http://www.scalemodelingbychris.com/
    It was very well cast and required little prep. I bought from the original purchaser and it had some slight warpage that may have been caused by poor storage but I was able to easily correct that by running under hot water.
    The interior fitted in easliy and it comes with a chopped whindshield frame and some clear acetate for the windows. I would definately buy more forom SM by C based on my experience with this one

    Chopped 32 Tudor
    Hi all I just finished this one Revell 32 Tudor, chopped resin body, 32 Highboy Halibrands and the stock grille shell, firewall and hairpins from a Stacey David 32. 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
