That is beautiful! I like that you made it a 51. You did a great job on the body work and the color choice is perfect.

That is one mighty fine looking Woody.  You have done some excellent work, and as the others have said that color is beautiful.

Very well done conversion. The 49/50/51 Ford Woodies are one of my favourite body styles of all time. I fabed one up over 25 years ago which was no where as nice as yours.

Nice work on the conversion.  Well built and finished.  Good choice of wheels and tires.  I might try this conversion myself.  I was thinking of building a 1949 Ford woody using the Merc kit.

That color scheme is outstanding! The paint really complements the wood tones, and vice versa.

Hi!

Great mash-up idea... turned out well!

If I may... what is the yellow Ford pick-up in the background of one of the opening pix? Looks like the Testor's Boyd Smoothster nose/fenders with a cab... Mash-up or kit combo? Just curious, it looks sharp!
