Howdy folks, it's RRR, I haven't been doing much building as of late, I have been lurking here from time to time. I finally got my cataract surgery done in March, quite a process. Now that I have  my new eyes settled in, I'm back at the bench. The fabled 33/36 coupe is a long term project KK and I started about five (!) years ago. We took the AMT '33 Ford five window coupe body and grafted a cut down greenhouse from the AMT '36 three window coupe. Many other mods ensued not least of which is a tuck in the rear trunk area to reshape the back end. Power comes from a blown Y-Block. Paint is Tamiya black with an overcoat of semi-gloss clear.  The accent color is Tamiya Intermediate Blue  (military color). Lots of buildup pix here: https://public.fotki.com/jferren/3336/  Thanks for looking -RRR (&KK)

Wow!

Stance, colours, gloss, all are in harmony. Bravo!

The roof choice is striking, the more rounded rear even more pleasing than the usual 33/34. And the "packaging" in the engine compartment is impressive. 

World-class design and execution. For a guy who had eye problems, this creation sure shows your eyeballs are at the top of the game!

Looks like perfect workmanship to me!  I like the back tires, that's what they used in the day; what are they?

The finished product looks so good that it makes it look like everything fits like it was made to - checking the build photos shows it is far from it. lots of work well done

The tucked-in tail is very effective, fixes the awkwardness of a stock '34...very cool engineering here :D

Did you dullcote the tires? They look very realistic.

Thanks for all of the compliments. Rear tires are from the Revell Model A series (that we may see again???). I sanded them with 2000 grit paper to knock the sheen off of them. -RRR

I like how you made it into a three window, looks very natural. Great engine choice, you don't get to see a blown Y block very often if not ever.

It's always a treat seeing what comes off your bench. Everything works together beautifully on this one.
