57 ford galpin gasser

The 57 is built to replicate the one that was in a  magazine. This is my representation of the car. The paint is testors pure gold lacquer. I designed and printed the decals at home.  The diamond tuck interior is scratch built using a 3D printer and painted pearl white, other parts include a moon tack machine out of aluminum, the instrument panel is custom made.  The engine was scratch built using various parts from other kits, the valve covers and velocity stacks are all 3D printed.  The radiator is modified and painted to simulate a new unpainted radiator.  There are many details to this car, the entire front front suspension was scratch built.  A lot of the chrome is painted not plated.  All the brake lines are ran and all the wiring is just how it should be, even the wheels are bolted to 3D printed break drums.  My goal is always to try to make all the parts I needed.

I remember the magazine article you mentioned. This build is outstanding in every way you can think of. The parts you crafted look real in every way. I'd like to see any additional information you can share about the upholstery for the seats and door panels.

I 3d printed the pattern prime and sanded it, then made a mold, resin it . than you mill the back of it really thin

That's a lot of work but in the end it looks perfect.

Beautiful build and absolutely awesome detailing !   So many great details to marvel at but the one that struck me is the radiator , very realistic right down to the solder on the top tank !
