Recommended Posts

Just finished this one up while under house arrest, frame modified to include ‘40 centre x member, ‘48 rear end with Parts Box finned drums all round. Engine is the Ardun from the F1 truck kit.

Great looking hot rod over all. Well built. I like the fog light up front and those very cool rear tires.

Very cool, I like the color--what's the paint?

Stunningly realistic as evidenced by your beautiful photos. This car is right on the money for current trends.

If I could respectively suggest two small items that would make it even better?  Grab a small brush and add a touch of black paint to the bracket in between the four bars - this is almost always part of the chassis and therefore would not be chrome plated..  And add two straight pins for radiator support rods from the firewall to the radiator..  This will help highlight that beautiful Arden.  I cant get over how perfectly draped your plug leads are!

Cheers

Alan

Beautiful looking Sedan. Besides the great looking subdued colors the Arden conversion engine just looks like it should.

Alan, I must admit to having forgotten to paint the 4 bar brackets - it will be addressed immediately ! Re the firewall rods, there is only one centrally positioned hole in the radiator so a vee’d  2 into 1 is needed. I will get right on it.

Very nice build! Great use of colors and I really like the wheels.

Time to grab some Rodder's Journals!! Cause that is where this car belongs if it weren't in scale (or they should do a scale section!!) .

What a perfect build. The Colour is perfect and the stance is spot on. As the others have said, right out of the Rodder's Journal.

Great looking sedan. My friend Jimmy had a real one that color years ago that was that color. Well done.
