    I am very impressed.  This has all the markings of a masterpiece.  Keep us posted.

    Art is correct about the meaning of the term Berline though not all Classic era cars used the term. As an example,  he exactly describes my 1:1 1929 Franklin which the factory called a 7 passenger limousine.

    Don't get me wrong. I am in total agreement with Art that a Duesenberg could have had a metallic color scheme from the factory.  Probably the most authentic 1930 Cord L-29 in existence sports a silver color scheme.  All I was saying is in my own opinion ACD cars look better in non-metallic color scheme,  an opinion I stand by, for the most part. I hold this opinion very dear when discussing some of the more conservatively styled Duesenbergs such as Berlines,  Town Cars and Sedans.  While Art's model is a model of a non-specific Duesenberg and he can thus build it any way he likes, I was offering an opinion of how I think it might look best. Please take it as such, an opinion,  not a statement of fact.

    Personally I like to see Duesenbergs in mono-chromatic, non-metallic color schemes most of the time though the Whittell Sedan certainly is an attractive car. Obviously this is a very subjective opinion, I have seen the car in person and last time I saw it, it was like all other Whittell cars, black with the understides of the fenders and the chassis in red. Several of his cars have since been restored, or re-restored and they do lend themselves to other color schemes. This is a long winded version of saying I would vote for shades of green with a very subtle variation between colors. Just my 2 cents worth.
    I really like what you are doing with this one Art. I really look forward to seeing the progress on this car as you go. One small suggestion; any time I have built up a Duesenberg and have not filled the holes on the fender where the hood panel fits (passenger side under the exhaust pipes) I have regretted it.I think the little slots for the tabs is an unsightly detail.
    Keep us posted on your progress.

    Yes. I haven't started to even think about that.

    I checked and no, I'm short a few spokes. I assume these can be made or bought?  Thanks for the offer Harry.  I'll PM you my address unless you are doing this electronically. 
    Thanks guys.

    Here is the car. The owner wants it repaired to display worthy condition.

    Well deserved win with a truly spectacular model. Thanks for taking all of us along for the ride.

    This looks great so far Art. My kind of model as you know.  I have always wanted to really do a Duesenberg to the nines. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this one.

    I've seen many 1:1 T's on tour running Fronty heads so you would not be outside the realm of reality if you use one. I like where you are going with this. The 26-7 T Touring cars are one of my all time favorite cars ever.
