    Having seen your work in person I am in awe at your talent. Great job and it is nice to see some of these old masterpieces being reproduced.

    How is this kit? I have always liked the subject, but never heard anyone say anything good about this kit.

    Great looking Model A. Where did you get the tires & wheels? I robbed the ones from my 30 kit for a build I am doing for my dad and need suitable replacements.

    Got my parts from Ken Kitchen today. WOW! Nice quality. I have been leery of resin due to poor quality parts in the past, but nice stuff! Anyone wanting quality products. I strongly recommend Ken Kitchen, Kitchen Table Resins.

    Thanks Chuck. I just received my 48 kit today and already "fixed" the rear window. My Dads truck is a combination of various F1's, but the cab is a 51. I just placed the order with you Ken for the parts. I will used the dash on my dad's truck and the grille and valance on a future build as his truck has a 48 front end. Thanks to everyone for the help. Now I just hope I can get it all done by March 11th!

    Thanks Jim B. I could not remember who had it. Sent him an e-mail today. Trying to build a scale version of the truck my dad is piecing together. Trying to find everything fairly quickly as I want to have the truck ready for when my dad comes out in a couple of months.

    51 Ford F1 Conversion
    Looking for the parts (or as many as I can get) to convert a Revell 48 F1 kit to a 51. Mainly looking for the cab, hood and dashboard. Trying to replicate my Dad's F1 that was a combination of 48, 50, 51 and 52 F1's. Also looking for 52-54 Passenger car hubcaps for the same as well as a 50 passenger car steering wheel and horn ring. Thanks in advance.

    Although I am a Ford guy I have always liked the lines on the 37 Chevy. Don't see too many at Hot Rod shows though. Here is one I did last year. Even put a Ford motor in it to help balance out all the Ford's with Chevy motors in them. Looking forward to seeing yours come together.
    Sorry for the bad pics. My old phone had a lousy camera.

    Great looking build. Reminds me of my first car, a 1948 Ford Coupe. One note on the dash is that on;y the center trim should be chrome (refer to your second picture).

    Have you ever tried the Plastruct Plastic weld? It works great on bare plastic. Pretty much melts the plastic together for a strong bond. You would have to strip the area of paint, but it shouldn't be to difficult to mask and respray the windshield frame after the repair

    Very cool build. The proportions are just right.
