This coupe looks so perfect! Love it. What brand and color of paints did you use on the frame, body, wheels and carb's?

Hi!

This is my tribute to Dick Magoo Megugorac's innovative 29 roadster, circa mid 90's. I took liberties with his design, and it became "Pinocchio"... a slightly elongated 29, with opened trunk, custom windshield, tru-frame exhaust tips, and home-built hood & radiator shell. The front axle is scratchbuilt, with shockwave air at the four corners. Rolling stock is from the Phantom Vicky, engine from the 32 5W kit. 

Hours of fun with styrene!

Not from a Revell kit, but still a '29 Ford rod:

My take on the Revell 29 Roadster

Lowered both ends, flatty from 32 Sedan, some scratch built coil overs for the rear

A true A-V8

Hi Sir!

What a great concept, and perfect execution. Should go directly to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Élégance!

Bravo!

This is a AMT 29 Roadster that I built up in early-mid eighties

Scratch built 32 chassis rails using AMT 32s and researched scale drawings, pinched at cowl for 29 body

AMT 29A front and rear cross members, tubular mid members

Blown small block Chebby

Front end ?? with scratch built disk brakes, rear from Lil' John Buttera kit

Ala Kart interior with chromed dash and screen and fire wall which was ressessed

Radiator cooling fan mounts made from printers plate

Wheels and tire from Revel 56 F100

Paint is real black laqueur hand rubbed and polished with no clear 

Fully wired and plumbed

Here's two that I've built. First one is from the box with only a slight lowering to the front.

The second was built with leftovers from the Revell kit and a '41 Woody along with various other parts.

I’ll play!

Something streetrod-y from the new Revell kit:

And a much more traditional version:

I've just finished this one. Changed the headers to 3d printed block huggers and lowered the front. Paint is all Tamiya rattle cans

What's not to love about a black and red 29 Hiboy?  The knockout for me is the frenched taillights - they look great!

Cheeers
