Looks great. Brown and black works good together.

Thank you, everyone, for your comments. Some of them are incredibly generous! 

Another knockout Dennis. The design and craftsmanship on this is excellent, it perfectly captures the look you were after. I like the understated black running gear and dark green block. And I'm not sure this would have looked as nice in any other color. The way everything fits together, plus that brown, gives it an earthy, organic look. All the pieces are there for a reason. I love it!

Thank you so much, Glenn! I went around and around on color and I just couldn't settle on something so I went to my LHS and stood there at the racks and this color finally raised its hand. I'm really happy with it and I couldn't imagine the car any other color, either.

ADL, One of your finest!  You have a natural eye for Hot Rod construction and execution... Now how about something with a cab? -KK

Another great looking '29 roadster !  Super clean and a very nicely detailed flathead really make this one a show stopper !

This is coolest version of this kit I've seen built yet. Love the Flathead motor and suspension changes, as well as the color combo (not a lot of hot rods painted brown in scale, so this is especially neat).

Cheers,

Albert

Something with a cab? How'd you guess?

Thank you, Albert. Your roadster is super nice, too! They'd look good sitting next to each other.

Yet another superfine build Dennis! Your models of hot rods are superlative! The stance of this one is lovely as is the inspired use of parts from other kits.

I have looked through the pictures several times and I am completely impressed with your attention to detail.  Each time I look at it I notice something else, it may be minuscule and unimportant to the overall build, but you have still paid attention to it.  Everything about this build is right on target, thanks for sharing it.
