29 Ford Model A Highboy

Recommended Posts

This is my first build in 4 years. I built the highboy version of the 29 model a roadster. Painted tamiya mica red, earth color on the interior, flat red bottom of floor and firewall. Added tunnel ram intake setup from a 66 nova, plug wires and rad hoses. Also cut the windshield down a couple scale inches. Thanks for looking...................

Just a great kit straight out of the box, especially when build as cleanly as you have here. It is the first time I have seen one built with the Chevy and Halibrands - looks real nice Paul!

Cheers

Four years away from the bench, I guess it's like riding a bike it all comes back real quick. Very cleanly built and well detailed looking.

Fool-proof recipe for a Hot Rod: Red and chrome. NICE!

The paint color is tamiya TS-85 bright mica red over tamiya white fine primer. Cleared with 2 coats of tamiya clear coat. Paint would have looked better if it had been polished it out. Honestly, I just didn't feel like doing it.

Minus the tunnel ram intake and cut down windshield, that’s just about as nice out of the box as you can get!
