SUMMARY

Started with Revell ’40 Ford Standard Coupe Street Rod

Deluxe front fenders and hood from Revell Convertible

Front independent suspension from Revell Willys Street Rod

Small block Ford and automatic trans from Revell ’32 Ford 5-W which also supplied wheels, hub caps, rings, tires and stock steering wheel

Bumpers from AMT ’40 Ford Sedan Delivery

Model Car Garage photo-etched grill

Replicas and Miniatures tuck and roll interior

Testors Champagne Gold Metallic enamel - I did have problems with this paint in that some of the metallic particles seemed to clump together forming grit. Fortunately it is not overly apparent in the photos.

Turned out looking great. I like the way you used parts from a few other kits to build this.

Superb job Phil, this color is very pretty on the car!  The '40 FORD front grille is a work of art in itself!  Well done sir!!!

Wow, that is slick.  That has to be one of the best "through the scale window" shots I have ever seen - your interior work is phenomenal. I have used that Champagne Gold metallic before and it can be challenging!  Wouldn't have thought of it for a 40 but seeing yours has me thinking abut putting it on a 48 coupe.

Cheers

Alan

Must agree with the other comments.  The 40 Coupe is one of my all-time favorite and you have done an excellent rendition of this one.

Thanks Francis - I trimmed the kit grill to just leave the frame and central spine to give me a buck to shape the photo-etched grill and provide a mounting arrangement

Thanks Alan - I lucked out with the through the window shot. When I finished the model I took it out to show my wife who was in the garden. I was so impressed with how  it looked in the sunshine I took all the photos outside which gave the perfect lighting.

Thanks Roger. It was a pretty straight forward conversion and now I am using the standard front end on the convertible
