I’ve had a Revell Henry J in my stash for some time but have been put off building it due to the unsightly frame and front suspension on display - until I happened upon this...

Inspired by this, the frame was shortened and the front end from a Malco Mustang donated to the cause. An injected SBC has found its way under the scuttle, while a modified Malco bulkhead fills the gap.

Rear end is from a Revell ‘32 with a combination of Malco and J components hung on my own mounts.

Bodywork is “in progress”, the front sheet metal is now static and the hood is filled.
