Monogram 1930 Model A coupe 60's hot rod.

There have been some nice Monogram Model As on here lately so I thought I would add my build from earlier this year.  I wanted to see if I could combine the parts from the last re-issue of the monogram Woody with the last re-issue of the Monogram coupe. Turns out it works pretty well with a couple of cautions.

Firstly, the woody dash with multiple gauges clashes with the model A coupe interior trim panels.  Would be easier to trim before paint - ask how I know this! Also, if you glue the roof on prior to paint, the interior panels can be a struggle to fit and further trimming was required. And those headers came from the original Red Chariot kit - I had saved them for a project like this! Paint is Tamiya Bright red over Tamiya pink primer and three coats of Tamiya clear straight from the can.

I cheated and left the stock rear axle in place but a nine inch would have made more sense. It was a fun build and I didn't want to get trapped in overcomplicationitis!
