33/36 Coupe

Time to start (or drag out a started) new project. This is a build KK and I started about 3 years ago when I was up at his place. We took the AMT 1936 five window coupe, hacked off the greenhouse and grafted on the chopped 3 window greenhouse from the AMT 1936 coupe. So, now I am attempting to get this going again. I made some relief cuts in the rear trunk area and tucked the trunk in a bit to give it a more '32 look (done in 1:1 scale by Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop). I have been mocking up a blown Y-Block engine for it. The plan is to make the front end somewhat '36ish by using '36 hood sides (from the Revell kit) and the AMT custom grille piece which will be heavily modified to look somewhat like a track nose...stay tuned...   -RRR (& KK)

That's how the louvers come right out of the Revell '36 kit. -RRR

Great job grafting the 36 roof onto the 33. It looks really good. I also like the rest of what you planned.

I think I knew that, but had forgotten! I couldn't tell they were open, in the photos with the hood sides taped in place, so I thought you'd cut them open, yourself!

I keep looking at this, thinking "swoopy front-hinged door..." Thankfully pixels are easier to fill and scribe than plastic!
