    TaDa! I found the floor pan. I was looking in one of my desk drawers for paint brushes and there it was. It was under some misc. stuff. Don't know if it fell in while I was working on the model, or whether gremlins in the basement hid it on me. I am in the middle of the 32 5 window now, but this will be back on the workbench soon.
    Thanks for all the suggestions and help.

    32 Ford 5 window
    Did up a couple of paint samples for the car. I showed them to the missus, she picked the green. I was leaning toward the copper, but we all know who won. Next build, I'll pick the color.

    Sounds like it may work. If not, just another repaint.

    32 Ford 5 window louvres
    I am about to start a 32 Ford 5 window coupe. The kit comes with plain & louvered hood panels and trunk. As the louvres are too small to open, I was wondering if after painting, a black wash would fill in the louvres and make them look like they are open. Just wondering if anyone has tried this, or if there are any other suggestions.
     
    Thanks

    It's an AMT/Ertl from 1998, oldie but goodie. I have some small sheets of metal from Hobby Lobby and am thinking of trying to fabricate a base that would work. Not sure how to go about it, but would be a good custom item if it turned out.

    Checked with Round 2, they only go back as far as 2008.

    Missing Parts
    I've been working on an AMT 1957 Bel Air hardtop I had started a long time ago, the date on the instructions says 1996, so I've had it a while. Assembling the frame last night, and getting ready to do some painting on body parts. Went to grab the interior tub and seats for painting and lo & behold, no interior tub. No idea where it went over the past years, or even if it was there to begin with. It is a nice kit, even came with plug wires and a sheet of Bare Metal Foil. Back on the shelf she will go unless I can find a spare interior, or it may become a parts car.
    Now on to a 1932 Ford 5 window, hope it goes better :-)

    Not really looking for this specific model, just a 55/56 kit to build.

    Would like to start resin casting
    I have been thinking o casting some parts from kits to use on future projects, wheels, carburators etc. and am wondering how hard it is to get started, I saw this small kit at Hobby Lobby, and was wondering if it would work as a start up to get going.

    Rare Model ?
    I've been looking for a model of the 1955 Chevrolet, saw this one on Amazon.ca, for CDN$ 262.26. Was also on Amazon.com for US $110.50. Are these people CRAZY, or is the model that hard to find??
