Thanks Tom, I'm very pleased with the lines of the body. The base is the Heller 1950 Talbot Lago Record, with the roof of an AMT 1957 Ford T-bird crafted on, and the wheels are from a Monogram 1956 Ford T-bird!

I'm enjoying this project too. Very offbeat, the parts work well together and it's looking really good.

Thanks Chris! The T-Bird roof works surprisingly well on the Talbot Lago!

Very nice, unusual project. I like it, I'll be watching.

Thanks you Paul, glad you like this slightly odd idea I have!

Glad to see this one back on the bench - beautiful!

Thanks, same here. I just haven't had time or energy to work on it until now when I decided properly on a deadline.

I decided to do one last thing before the new layer of primer. At first, I thought of having bumpers both front and rear, but after looking at some art deco style cars, I decided not to have any bumpers. That meant I had to remove the bumper mounts in the front. It turned out really nice and is a huge up for the body lines in the front!

Sprayed some primer on the body to see where it needs some more work. It looks pretty good but there's a few spots where it needs more work.

The decision to eliminate the bumpers and brackets is absolutely the correct thing to do.That lengthens those beautiful curved front fenders and visually improves the overall design.

Tom W is correct. The more you remove, the better it looks.

What a great bit of custom building/mods going on here. This is looking really great, I really dig the lines of this.

Thank you all! The removal of the bumpers and mounts really did it for me.

 

I'm going to let the body sit for a few days before tackling the last parts to smooth out, and meanwhile I'll start looking into the chassis and continue on the interior.
