As suggested by Tim Boyd please post photos of your 29 Ford Roadster builds even if they have already appeared on the forum. It will be great to see them all in one place. I have yet to start my build but I am really looking forward to it.
I bought this when it first came out, but It's only recently that I figured out what to do with it. My original intent was to replicate a famous early roadster, but the modified wheelwells meant I would have to rework them back to stock, and since Round 2 was happy to sell me a Model A roadster that I didn't have to alter, I shelved that idea. I decided to go instead to go for something where the reworked wheelwells were part of the design. In this case I figured it was something you'd do if you wanted fenders on a channeled body. The other inspirations were some footage in an old drag racing film of a Deuce roadster sporting an early Hemi with a Latham blower, and this cover to a Henry Gregor Felsen novel. So it's going to end up being a late '50s style rod with bobbed fenders in the rear, and cycle fenders up front. The rear fenders are from the previous issue of AMT's '29 roadster kit. The front fenders are from the Double T kit, as is the Latham supercharger. The Deuce grille shell is from the parts box, while the engine, wheels, and tires are from the latest "Mod Rod" edition of AMT's '29 A roadster.
