'40 Ford Tudor – Late '50s Style! In Paint At Last!

Recommended Posts

Been working off and on this Tudor for a long time, but now it's on again for September Showdown. Louvers are from the '40 coupe kit, cut apart and applied individually. Spent a lot of time getting the hood and grill to fit properly on this one.

Added some detail to the kit's Olds engine. Most importantly adding brackets to the generator, which I lowered and replaced with a scratched piece with a more accurate shape. Also added a fan, nuts to hold the air cleaners on, a better distributor, and an upper radiator hose.2v2UscjQyxE7U1V.jpg2v2UscjR8xE7U1V.jpg2v2JSFW7LxE7U1V.jpg2v2JSFWRgxE7U1V.jpg2v2JV2UYGxE7U1V.jpg2v2JV2UsFxE7U1V.jpg

Modified the interior with scribed in pleats on the upper seat backs and some styrene rod piping.  The interior was painted overall Tamiya Racing White, then the seating areas and upper side panels were brush-painted Humbrol black acrylic with a random pattern in Testors copper bottle enamel with a touch of flat black to resemble the type of pattern fabric used in the '59 Edsel. The steering wheel and accessory gauge panel are from the AMT '50 Ford.

This is a sweet build, John. As a big Olds fan, it makes it even sweeter. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Love your '50's era build. Very impressive interior. The big Olds engine looks perfect. The '56 Olds Fiesta hub caps, where did you find those ?

Hand painted seat and door panel pattern is amazingly cool! The whole car looks so cool so far!

Here are some shots of the various parts of the Tudor in paint at last!  Vintage '79 Duplicolor Chevy Camel metallic and Tamiya Gold under Tamiya Clear.  Looking for ward to rub-out in a few days.

That looks great. I like the scallops!

So you sprayed Tamiya over the Duplicolor?

Was it the perfect match brand?

Thanks, James!  Yes, Tamiya over Duplicolor.  The Duplicolor was a rattle can from the '80s, leftover from when I had a 1/1 '79 Malibu in the same color.  I sprayed the Duplicolor over Plasticote sandable grey primer.
