I'm thinking of doing this one as the '49 Ford that Louise Smith drove. Louise Smith (July 31, 1916 in Barnesville, Georgia – April 15, 2006) was tied for the second woman to race in NASCAR at the top level. She was known as "the first lady of racing." She went as a spectator to her first NASCAR race at the Daytona Beach Road Course in 1949. She could not stand watching the races, so she entered her family's shiny new Ford coupe in the race and rolled it. Her hometown Greenville, South Carolina paper featured photos of the wreck, and the town knew about it before she got home. The race was the first race to feature three female drivers (Ethel Mobley and Sara Christian). The trio also competed later that season at the Langley Speedway. She raced from 1949 to 1956. She won 38 races in her career in numerous formats: late models, modifieds (28 victories), midgets, and sportsman.

This is a AMT '49 Ford Kit with parts from other kits. I haven't built anything with aftermarket parts yet, but am looking to do one next. I was watching the live feed of Drag Week '13 on youtube and wanted to build a Big Block Power Adder contender. I didn't know how to maximize lighting but I figured daylight was a good start. So I took the pictures outside, on the first thing I saw when I opened the door...my 1:1 toy. I hope you enjoy it:
