Beau travail Philippe. I love the finish and Ahhhhhh. those wheels. Any chance of giving us a tutorial? I think I'll try and find one and turn it into a 31 like this one I once owned.

Fantastic job on this Ford. Perfect colors and the wheels are brilliant! Please show us how you built them.

Nice! I have been waiting to build this one.  How bad are the kit wheels? Yours look wonderful by the way.

Wow - I doubt they ever looked this good right off the assembly line!

Thank you all :)

Pat, your 1/1 was absolutely beautiful.

About the tutorial, I built this kit 30 years ago.

No computers, no Web and no digital cameras ;)

When I will built the others 3 above + a woody wagon I have also + another 5 Windows coupe I want to turn into a roadster, I will re-find the process and post in the workbench section.

However, it's not yet.

I've other kits under construction and must finish them before.

Frank, as my English is far from perfect, I'm not sure to understand your words.

So, I hope the cars were like that at the end of the assembly line, except the licence plates I made also ;)

Beautiful work throughout but those wheels put it in a class of its own. Fabulous!

Great model all around.  I echo the comments on your wheels. One other variation you count consider is a Deluxe Phaeton which is the 2 door version of the standard 4 door Phaeton. Is this one copra over chichle  drab?

Dang. Your autocorrect went crazy on this one. But maybe I don't know what a chicle drab is.

Cool build.  Good job on the wheels.  Nice to see this car built factory stock.

The Deluxe Phaeton Eric refers to looks like this:

And Chicle Drab is some sort of brownish gray:

Thank you all :)

Eric, the 2 door phaeton is an easy scratch to do, but the 4 door version is already very nice :)

Pat, thank you for the available Ford colors. This shows me my model is wrong in color, but as I said before, no web and no information on this model when I built it ;)

As I see there are specialists here, just a question :

I want to turn my second 5 windows coupe in a roadster like this one, but I don't know if the advertising on the doors is realy historic or if it's a modern promotional object ?

Stunning looking Model A coupe. Just lovely. It would be nice to this kit back on shelves at our local hobby stores. Or better yet, the cabriolet version.
