49 Ford Custom

Recommended Posts

I just finished this one this morning (#12 for the year).

This one took a few years to get across the line and I'm glad to finally have it completed. The body and interior was sectioned about 1/8 inch. 56 Ford headlight buckets molded in. Used Lazy Modeler flame stencils and three colors for the flames. Many other major and minor alterations. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Sam. I'm sure I can get one more but the 50 Ford might not make it under the wire. Still have a lot to finish on it.

Thank you very much Fellas! I really like the look of the flames too and was surprised at how simple they were to do and how nice the fading of the colors turned out.

The masks work really well. Very simple to use. The only trouble is ensuring that you get them placed where you want them the first time.

I do love a nice flame job and yours is as nice as I’ve seen. Great color choices. That 1/8” section made a world of difference. Beautiful model!
