It looks great, and very accurate. 

Hi Tulio! I thought of you when I posted this one, because I know you love restored Fords. I love your work. Glad you like this one. Take care,

Wasn't expecting this one. Just lovely. May have to build one stock myself. Uber nice job there.

The stock build with the butterscotch color really just makes this classic pop out at me. Happy to see it done this way.

Love this! Great wiring and detailing, and I'm especially impressed by that double pinstripe on the beltline and reveal. How the heck did you do that?? I also like that you scribed in (or drew) the missing cowl seam. I normally build hot rods, but seeing this makes me wonder if maybe I should try a stock model A for a change. Inspiring work!

Guys, thank you for all your great, kind comments! You guys are Awesome!

Spex, the pinstripes and panel lines were done with a Koh-i-Noor technical pen. They call it a "Rapiograph". You can buy various diameter nibs for them, enabling you to draw very, very fine lines. I've used ink and acrylic paint in them. After scribing the missing cowl seem, I drew over it with black Indian ink in the Rapiograph pen. It's great for darkening panel lines in general. Black works, but if you're ambitious,  you could mix up a darker shade of the panel color and use that too. On this car, the pin striping was a little nerve racking, done free hand..........and gone over a couple times to darken it up. Whew!

Thanks Tim--I actually have some old Rapidographs. I'll have to try the acrylic paint trick!

Excellent build of a Model A. It's a nice classic style just as Henry and Edsel Ford intended.

An actual stock Model A Roadster! I really like the color scheme (especially the painted reveals and pinstriping!), the detail painting and extra detail. You definitely got the most out of this old kit!
