Great wheels, super motor, stance is dead on, so is the chop. This is an outstanding model.

Home run with that one- great period look, well-executed and cleanly built. I like everything about it.

Didn't I just see that one in Rodder's Journal?   Wow Dennis, simply a beautiful hot rod.  The channel job works well (and you rarely see a Tudor channelled!) and I love the fitment of the rear tyres in the wheel arches. The Olds looks right at home there and the grey wheel centres tie everything together. You continue to set targets for all us hot rod modellers to meet!

Cheers

Alan

Thanks, Alan! That neo-traditional Rodders Journal look is what I was going for with the color and sports car style wheels.

Channeled Deuce Tudors aren't that common, you're right. But in the recent past I've done a channeled Roadster, 3-Window and 5-Window so I figured I should finish out the Revell '32 fleet with a channeled Tudor.

One of the best, if not the best '32 sedans I've ever seen! As usual, you gather all the right parts and they go together perfect! Excellent work!

Thanks, Roger! I dunno if it’s the best but that’s mighty nice of you.
