29 Model T bucket

Recommended Posts

A simple kit and a simple build. 1/20 rear wheels/tire's are from the Tamiya F1 Honda 272RA kit, front wheels are Fujimi photo etched.

I like it--a LOT--but it's not a '29. B)

Thanks,  lol,  then what is it? I always thought it was a 29 T-bucket. Oh well.

I know Lindberg has something they called a "29 T", but there's no such thing, and it doesn't look like the Lindberg kit.   It looks like a 23-25 T.  In fact, the interior looks like it came from Mnogram's "L'il T", or one of it's variations.    Nicely done, in any case.

More like a circa 1925 Model T Ford. Not a '29. Those were Model As.

Very nicely done ,  the wheel and tire combo looks great !   I also like the subdued look without the bright toy-like chrome .

Judging by the engine/headers/radiator and interior it's a Revell Ford Street "T" Rod kit .

Very nice T Bucket. I like the rear tires, they really don't look out of scale to me and the sidewalls look naturel.

Pretty sure the Model T's came before the A's.

Thanks, surprising how they look in scale.

Model T production ended with the 1927 model year. Model A production was from 28 through 31 model years.

Good to know. To me they're all little hot rods waiting for our imagination. Thanks for the info. :D

That's what I said. The car is a circa 1925 Moel T, and not a '29. 1929 Fords were Model As.

I think the Model T Roadster pickup was available from the factory only 1925-1927.

OP? No idea what that is an acronym for. Sorry. But thanks for helping me learn the correct year.

Thanks for the info lesson guys. I am not much a stickler for that kinda stuff when I build, I just like to build. I appreciate learning though. I should have just looked in my stash, I have a number of those early model T buckets.

Thanks man, funny thing about those wheels. I took them off there to make a mold from them, and now I can't find them, doh. 

Yes I am heading to that show with Sara. She is so excited to be entering some builds. Not sure if I will actually enter any builds or just show them, either way I am taking a ton. I assume you are not going, being it is so far of a drive.

OP means original poster, or the person who created the topic.

Regardless of the year, the patina and overall look is great for a "Fun Bucket!"

I wish it was real.
