I’m back, and with Delusions of grandeur.

Hi guys n gals, it’s been some time since I posted, 2 moves and a career change! Well I finally got time to set up the ole hobby desk and sorted through some of my in progress builds and some of my planned builds. Decided to put all the in progress builds in a holding pattern and start over.

Before I left off I had been scrounging and trading and bartering for Revels 32 Ford kits in all the assorted flavours that were available. Between new and partials and some rebuilders I have amassed a pretty good stash, enough in fact to start a very challenging builds! 
Yes I’m talking about the 15 flavours!!

I have 4 of the 15 already complete.

3 window, 5 window, roadster and closed cab pickup.

so that leaves cabriolet, sport coupe, 2 door sedan, 4 door sedan,  convertible sedan, sedan delivery, Victoria, phaeton, roadster pickup, panel delivery and station wagon! 
 

for the sake of rules I’ll be doing all the car based models in this section of the forum, while the light commercial models will be in that forum.

Wish me luck as this will be a huge undertaking. And to appease @tim boyd

They will all be powered by as many Ford engines as I can. I will endeavour to make as many as possible to be hot rods!

so I’ll start with some pictures to get your attention

Bill.....a terrific post....and congrats at being back at the bench.  And don't worry too much about what engines you pick.....just follow the creative urge and go for it.  Congrats and best wishes as you carry on....TIM 

Thanks for the kind words @tim boyd this is going to be a labour of love, the 32 Ford is iconic and one of my favourite cars! And who doesn’t love customs

Be sure to include a few flatheads in your builds- also, some like the 3 window coupe, tudor, and four door sedans had pretty  deluxe upholstery- nothing like a luxurious interior for comfortable cruzin'! BTW- its not madness, it's normal modeling ambition! It's only madness if you set a deadline!

I'm a 32 fanatic, so you have my attention

Looks like you're well on your way to solving a couple of the missing body styles, here's a couple suggestions

Both the b400 and "station wagon" woody are available inexpensively from Jimmy Flintstone. The woody portion of the woody is quite a bit different from the 29 body you're starting with.

The cabriolet used to be available from Replicas and Miniatures, but is sadly discontinued. mastered by Lyle Willits its a very nice piece. maybe post in the wanted section you are looking for one?

Oh there will be flatheads @Paul Payne

I’m planning on making the station wagon as best I can with what I have available, as for the sport coupe I think the uptop will be the hardest challenge.

the cabriolet will be fairly easy to pull off

I applaud resourcefulness. If that's the route you choose  let me help you out a bit.

When i created my sport coupe, I removed the roof portion from a 5 window body, and then modified a roof from a Monogram 30 ford cabriolet to fit. 

100 2268

Replicas and Miniatures offered it for awhile, and I managed to build this out of it...

Thank you Craig, I think my biggest hurdle will me maintaining the fabric look on the tops, I appreciate the tips.

that being said I think the most challenging build will be the B400, not a lot of good resource pics on the ole Interwebs, is it based off the sedan or the Victoria?

I applaud you Bil for this undertaking! Are local club did this for the Deuce Days back in 2019 and we as a group built all the variations of the venerable 32.

@m3fan Russel I’m. It going to lie, I believe I found one of your posts and used it as an inspiration to start this undertaking!
