1/8 1932 Ford " Rebel Queen" p-51 hot rod roadster
lazlow posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsAfter a 10 year hiatus, I started building again this year. I am putting this up to get some motivation to stay on target, any suggestion welcome. I am starting with 2007 Revell version of 1932 "big duce". I have combined my love of hot rods and ww2 airplanes, I have seen some on the net and thought I do my interpretation, and try to look a little deferent then the others. This is going to take some time, but I have to finish this one or the wife will kill me, this one is pricy. ( I have a lot half fished kits in the closet ,over the years) So I am building it based on a p-51 mustang " Rebel Queen" flown by four time ace Fred Glover. I building it as if he or his mechanic built it after the war in 1947. It will have shinny paint and some chrome, as if it was going to be a show car or what they fantasized what the p-51 could of looked like if not in war. Channeled body, laid back wind screen, Fighter gages, bomber seats, joystick handle shifter and other goody's. Wish me luck. Laz The first pic, the plane. The second, the nose art with Crew Chief S/Sgt. John E. Wilson The third, is Major Frederick W. Glover. The forth, is the car I started with for photo shop. The fifth, is final rendering.
1932 Ford Bonneville Coupe / Revell
jbattersby posted a topic in Model CarsHi all, it's been a long time since I posted a finished build here on the forum, but finally I found the time to upload some images. The Bonneville Coupe as I call it is basically a box stock 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe without the fenders. Modifications are the wheel and tire combo, and the straight pipe headers. The paint is Testors Green Metal Flake(1630) from a can, no clear overtop. For more updates on my builds, please follow me on Instagram @scaled_models as I update there regularly. Cheers!
Hard_2_Handle_454 posted a topic in Model CarsPicked this up for $8 at a place called Ollies that sells discount goods along with a few other models. Came out really good, I just hate having to make the suspension on these things. I don't have four arms to hold the things down and glue.

'32 Tudor chopped,channelled,stovebolt 6!
Spex84 posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsHere's an old unfinished built that is finally nearing completion. In 2009, I started a Revell '32 Tudor by chopping the top (my 2nd chop ever, and first sedan chop) and dropping it on a scratchbuilt frame with a Revell '41 Chevy PU stovebolt 6 engine. It was only my second build after re-entering the model car hobby in '09. The initial plan was to run straight pipes and have rear airbags and a very low stance, like the rat rods of the day but with nicer paint. I tossed around a number of ideas for paint color, from brown and black to metallic aqua and red. Eventually I settled on a Duplicolor metallic red. In 2009 I didn't know where to get tall rear bias-ply tires, so I spent ages looking for discount toys and was ecstatic to find the 1:24 diecast T-bird tires for the rear. 6 years later, I know how many options are available online, and also which kits have the best traditional-style tires. The build languished half-built for years, and last year I pulled it out to fix some problems with the paint, and chop the grille shell. Then it sat again. Finally this year I pulled it out and am assembling it. Because I didn't plan as well in 2009 as I do now, assembly has been frustrating and there were several minor disasters with glue and fitment. In the end, I've mounted the body higher than originally intended, and changed the exhaust to a set of sweeping dual pipes made from solder. The original setup: Building the frame: Modifying the interior, scratchbuilt windshield frame: How it sat for years: Getting another coat of paint: Updated exhaust made from solder: How it stands today, just needs some radiator hoses and other small details:
Came out pretty good.
Think it came out looking great. Gotta love a 32 in black.
**Chrysler's Los Angeles Assembly Plant
1972coronet posted a topic in The Off-Topic LoungeHere's a link to an article on the Allpar site regarding the *elusive* Chrysler Los Angeles Assembly ( actual location : City of Commerce ) . I contributed to the article (under my literal nom-de-plume of "Shoe") with the resources I've garnered over a year or so . This was made possible in no small part on the long-defunct Los Angeles Hearald Examiner as well as those whom replied to my inquiries regarding this plant . See the accompanying text and credits on the site for full disclosure. Enjoy ! http://www.allpar.com/corporate/factories/los-angeles.html
Recently I saw a built 1932 Ford Roadster that was a center steer drag car. It had a nice tonneau cover over the drivers area except for where the driver would sit. When I asked my buddies at my local model club. They said it is a AMT kit and that the parts for this build are included in the kit. Sooo here is the question to all of you are much more knowledgable than I am. Which version(s) of the AMT 1932 Ford roadster kit has the parts needed to build the center steer drag race version? Hopefully it will be a verily recent kit. Don't want to break the bank. Thank you in advance.
'32 Ford 3-Window Coupe
gwolf posted a topic in Model CarsI built this Revell 32 Ford around 11 years ago. One of my favorite kits ever, I should have bought ten of them. Does anyone else think that even at 1:25 scale, the Revell 32 Ford visually look larger than other 1:25 kits? I opted for the fenderless version and painted the body a sky blue color from a spray can. The interior was done with a suede paint and the frame and firewall were painted flat black. I scuffed the tires with a sanding block to give it a more authentic look.
