'41 Willys "Demon II"

Recommended Posts

First off, lemme thank everyone who followed along and /or commented. You guys are da bee's knees.!!

Started out with these two kits and a Pro Street vision between the two.

I've always had an eye for Revell's "Street Demons" series back in 1983 but I don't really care for the gasser look that a few of 'em had...……..this one in particular. In staying with the theme I set out to change things up a little bit in the way of a slight color change up, stance, powertrain and interior.

Powertrain : Came from the Revell 1968 Hemi Dart kit with upgrades to the ignition, fuel and throttle linkage systems.

Wheels: From Future Attractions. I had my machine shop at work cut the rear wheels in half due to the fact that they were just too dang wide to use with the tires I had.

Paint: Testors Icy Blue Lacquer, Testors White Lightning Lacquer and Testors Wet Look Clear all decanted and shot through an airbrush.

Decals: Speedway Decals

Outstanding paint work and I like the white front fenders. The engine swap makes more sense for a street car and the details are great.

I can't thank you guys enough. Most of the techniques I've learned in auto modeling have been acquired by watching folks like you guys here on this forum. Great place to be.

Thank you all very much for the great comments. After a couple of builds I may be diving into another Demon II project.
