Impressive work! Love those old Johan models. I built a ton of 'em back in the day.

OK, Finished the frame. Move on to #4, 1960 Ford. Getting bored with this one. Time to move on!

OK, Cut the doors from the interior tub. Now comes the modifying the body to get the interior tub to fit and making the door jams. Oh joy, (not!)

Working on the interior now. Going with black and bare metal foil. Sanded down the molded pedals. Went into parts box and found a set I like. Going with black embossing powder for carpet. Check out pics and tell me what you think

Used 44 of these bolt heads to get 20 of them for the wheels. The other 24 went flying somewhere. Sure I'll find them over time, when I don't want to

I moved around some furniture in my model room to install my new paint booth. I have a hardwood floor. I scraped the entire floor area with a business card and put the resulting pile of dust, hair etc into a shoebox lid.., what did I find?  Photo etch wheel weights and seat belt buckles, a kit door handle, several brass dollhouse nails and a few small kit parts I didn’t even realize I was missing!

I have carpet in mine. Hate to vacuum the room cause every time I do it sounds like a machine gun going off. Never find anything when I dump it, but I know there was something in it!
