Butter 32

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

In all the years and many 32 Fords I've built, I don't believe I ever did a fender version. When I Decided to do one I also decided to use only left over parts from all the other 32's I built. This is the result!

Mostly Revell parts, donated tires, Reliable Resin wheels, Alclad chrome and Model Car World paint. The chassis was tubed, rear fenders widened and the body was smoothed just like "Butter". 

I wanted the wheels to be black at first, but an attempt to lightly spray Alclad Chrome over the black base proved to produce a much better look. at least to me.

 My skill set has diminished and I haven't spend much time at the bench lately, but I'm happy with this one. I should touch and clean it up some, Thanks for looking....

Smooth is right! I would question that your skill set has diminished, especially with your chassis work and assembly of left over parts. Great 👍 work!

Congrats Misha

I agree with Misha, on your "skill set".  The thing I like most is the understated color and overall look of your build. Very clean and well done in every way.

Very classy, a gentleman's hotrod. If Cab Calloway drove a hotrod, this would be it!

I dig the concept and the way the butter colored paint looks with the white running boards and top insert. It’s neat to see the pro-street narrowed and tubbed back half, not to mention the widened fenders to cover those big tires. Rad!

I really like the understated bodywork, light paint colour and dark wheels, it works well, and very nicely built too.

Beautiful. I love the monochromatic look when it’s done well- like this. The wheel treatment is terrific. Gotta love happy accidents. If this is an example of “diminished” skills then we should all be so lucky some day. Super classy deuce!

I like the overall look of this. The color is unusual, yet perfect. And I like the tubbed rear and dark wheels. Beautiful job.

Later-
