    Great looking work on a car i like seeing. I have one under primer in the project queue. Are you using the kit chassis our swapping it out for a better detailed version?

    "32-32" Aurora '32 Ford
     
     
    OK, let me try this again. I have no idea why the pictures were not loading the other day, but I did post from my phone. I picked up this older kit at the Phoenix Desert Scale Classic this past spring. The box was in pretty rough shape so I pitched it, and I did not get a picture and do not have instructions. I know it is an Aurora, is 1/32 scale and seems it may have been a friction model our slot car at some point. I do not recall the kit name. It has a multi piece body, which did not want to align. There were also large gaps in the body sides that needed replacing. There was also a really bad roof texture that needed removing.

    Hosted on Fotki I also cut away the molded in drivetrain to give the chassis a bit more realism, as well as remove the molded in side pipes.

    Hosted on Fotki The grill shell also has these awful light mounts than needed to be sanded away.
    Hosted on Fotki The original motor for this kit was way too large and comical. I have heard several times over the years that the red ram hemi in the re-done Ala Kart kit is a little under scale, so l thought it would work here. The kit transmission was too large, so I swapped it out from the parts box.

    Hosted on Fotki I will be using a bit more modern style "spoked" wheel.

    Hosted on Fotki The car was originally going be a dark metallic grey, but the paint job did not agree. So I re-shot it in Testor's Deep Purple Pearlescent. The fenders fell of the paint stand on my last wet coat, and fell right into the carpet, so they had to be sanded down and shot again. My wife got me a dehydrator recently, so I got to use it for the first time, so I did not have wait so long on the fenders.

    Hosted on Fotki I hope to get the sub assemblies coming together over the next few days.
