tim boyd Posted March 29 Share Posted March 29 (edited) One of these was a Scale Auto Enthusiast cover story from the late 1980's....and very much inspired by an Ivory colored '32 Woody built by Boyd Coddington. It had a way-ahead-of-the-curve paint color - a way old can of Krylon early 1960's style aqua turquoise. had originally planned to paint it with a can of Mercury 1978 Medium Jade touch-up paint but that disappeared in my move from Michigan to East Cobb Georgia c. 1987, and the Krylon was the backup. The rest of the kit was largely stock from the (originally MPC) AMT/Ertl reissue, but to get that stance was a major league headache and I recall that making up much of the story in SAE. Of course, as usual, once I did this one I couldn't help but do a second one, that was far more traditional in flavor. Both these used real wood for the woody area insets and the first one, just as Boyd C did on his car, had much of the internal bracing cut away. Then, still couldn't let up the inspiration so i did a third one based on the Monogram '30 A Woody kit, but using the "Sedan Delivery" style panels included in that kit. Here's how that one came out... These two ended up in a follow-up article either in Scale Auo Enthusiast or Car Modeler magazines. Of course, while these were pretty well turned out for the late 1980's , they do not begin to approach the level of detail and quality seen in Dennis' latest project in the WIP part of the forum . But I still like ''em for what they are. (You can see Dennis' Woody project here... Lots more pix here if you want to see more on my three Model A woodies above....and three other Boyd woodies along with a scale surfboard collection....and thanks for looking...TIM Edited March 30 by tim boyd 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
