Revell 1932 Ford 5-window coupe

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Here is my just recently completed 1932 Ford 5-window coupe.  It's a combination of my love for hot rods and military aviation. The body is painted Tamiya Olive Drab lacquer with a satin clear coat, while the fenders are Tamiya gloss black lacquer (both colors were decanted and then applied with an airbrush). The trunk is Model Master buffable aluminum, polished to a very shiny sheen. The decals were all sourced from Revell hot rod decal sheets and a Slixx Rat Rods goodie sheet. I cut out the cowl vent cover, added some mesh, and then made a new open vent cover from sheet styrene. The other added bit is the hood from the Stacey David '32 Ford Rat Roaster kit. Last but not least, the engine sports a Morgan Automotive Detail pre-wired distributor. The rear license plate mount and tail lights are from the parts box. 20171107_150330.thumb.jpg.2980aa781b855c20171107_145410.thumb.jpg.cb87ea8a42eae620171107_150026.thumb.jpg.6b7f113f5a720220171107_145509.thumb.jpg.2aeab6274b065a20171107_145855.thumb.jpg.ca9be4ae43bf8a20171107_150257.thumb.jpg.7256bea544850c20171107_150411.thumb.jpg.b568c8cd92f93b20171107_150452.thumb.jpg.f86b1b0744de2520171107_145959.thumb.jpg.19850b8e3c8053

Thanks for looking!

Cheers,

Albert

Thank you, Jim, Dave, and Kris! @Kris- the satin clear is Model Master Acryl semi-gloss. While we're in the kudos department, your pre-wired distributors rule! 

Cheers,

Albert

Love it!  Here's mine witih a slight military theme.  Wish I knew where all my fender units were... I've built all the 32s and only hte Speedwagon has fenders.  SO I have a lot of them somewhere.

Love your finishing treatment with the vintage military aviation accents. Where did you source the rivets on the trunk lid?

Thanks, Brad! The rivets are decals and came from the Revell 1930 Model 'A' coupe decal sheet.

Cheers,

Albert
