Another movie car done......32 Ford

Recommended Posts

I like movie cars.....and hot rods. This one was a natural. I wanted to use the Monogram old tool 1/24 kit so it would scale up with all the other Monogram hot rods I have built....and I like the old kit. Here is a screen grab from the film

Neat looking build. I like the narrow cheater slicks on the back. Your second set of pictures you put up the ones of the model have the proportions corrected from the first set.

I don't know why they are out of proportion ....but if you click on them they reset to correct format. THANKS!

All of a sudden (and without me doing anything at all) the images are showing. Nice work!

I'm sure you already have it, but here's a link for vehicles in movies.

http://www.imcdb.org/

The site lets you search by name of movie or by vehicle.

I would say you nailed it. 

The color for sure gives the car that home built utilitarian look that I think to be very cool.

Dave Van, I see the pics distorted as well. However, I view everything on my 'puter @ 125% screen view. If I reduce the view to 75%, they are no longer distorted. So it may be a photo size issue.

Great job, and a neat subject! I hadn't caught this movie...for a second I was thinking 1958's "Hot Rod Gang," but that one didn't have a hood. I'll have to check this one out
