'36 Tudor-"distressed finish"


Recommended Posts

A Flintstone body, combined with a mostly complete AMT '36, on a modified '40 frame and suspension, toss in a '49 flathead, Corvair 13" wheels in front, scratch built interior, '37 hood, opened hood side vents, then spray some gray and red primer, add some salt, flat black, rust and dust. There it is. At the time the photos were taken it did not have the rear bumper and some minor details left to do and the camera showed all the plastic particles from construction!!!

A very nice looking rust bucket. You mentioned the '37 hood on the '36 body and radiator shell. How hard was it to match up ?

Because the Monogram '37 is 1/24 and the 36 is 1/25 it took a lot of trimming to make it work. The part of the grille that goes up into the '36 hood was cut off. It is a bit quirky as far as fitment goes but rats are like that.
