    This looks great. The one thing that I might consider would be redoing the mouldings. Your call of course.

    I may be wrong but I'm betting that the 32 hubcaps will fit over the 33 wheels. Then there is the better under hood detail of the 32. While your at it...posable front wheels...possibilities are endless. Might I suggest two-tone blue dark with sort of a dark tan or maroon upholstery?

    Even if it is not your car, what a cool old photo!

    Looks good.  That was a great idea using the fishing line. It's coming together nicely.

    The gray body was a 31 Packard 840 Phaeton.  You could get a great Duesenberg LeBaron or Derham  Phaeton out of that one. You certainly keep things interesting.

    You always come up with interesting projects.  I'll be watching your progress with interest. If you decide you should have gone with the Bugatti I'll donate a Duesenberg to the cause!

    Nothing not to like here. Great model all around.

    I did a build up of the Gable car J-567 (Clark Gable never actually owned the cat but used it extenively) about 30 years ago. It came out well though much of the filler has shrunk. Keep in mind all I had at the time was good old green stuff. The way you describe doing your work is exactly what I did years ago. I look forward to seeing your progress,  even if you abandon the project.  This is coming from a guy who took 15 years to build a Judkins Victoria!  Best of luck.

    I would encourage you to check out the current photos of the Cooper car. If you PM your address I can get a very good article about the two short wheelbase Duesenbergs, AKA (but not from the factory ) the SSJ cars.

    Once upon a time I used black spark plug wire (1:24 scale of course ) for fender welt on a Cord Sportsman I was building.  I think it came out looking spot on. Maybe consider that? The Phaeton is looking excellent.

    It is so exciting to see kids getting into the hobby. I'm hoping that I can get my girls started. I think I started when I was about 7 but what do you think is a good age for kids to begin building? 
    You have done well getting them involved and their workmanship is excellent!

    Oh my. That is simply excellent.  I really like all the little details on the instrument panel. Under the hood and on and on.  This is a model to be proud of.  Stunning.

    Excellent work on this one. What's next? 
  14. Eric Macleod added a post in a topic '36 Ford Phaeton   

    Wow! That blows away my early Ford!

    Looks excellent.  I am impressed with the model, the '67 'Stang  and the tool box. Lots of good stuff you have.
