I've started work on the Engine. Bit of a mish mash of parts but will look cool when shes together. Ive mated the ford transmission to the block to make it easier to fit into the chassis.

And I have started messing about with the interior. Its slowly taking shape.

Looking good. The 36 has always been one of my favorite designs. What is the # for that Plastistruct sheeting that you are using for the tuck and roll interior? I need to pick some of it up for my 50 Ford.

Not much progress to report, mostly filling, sanding, priming….. filling, sanding, priming etc etc. I have filled the bumper mount holes, and I'm filling the roof panel in as well.

I'm making some tuck and roll inserts for the running boards,

I have also made some seat mounts for the interior and some TnR mats.

I have decided to use the rear axle that is in the kit for ease.

I don't have a lot to report at the mo, But hear are a few pics of where i'm at at the moment. I can't do any decent painting because of the weather. So I have been concentrating on getting the body in good shape and making sure the trunk lid etc fits well as it was sitting proud of the surounding bodywork! I'm suprised by how much bodywork is required on this build. As the last one I built I just sort of threw together, Anyhews on to the pics :).

I have also filled the axle hole in the engine block and started modifying the front axle.

I was thinking of painting it Cadmium orange. Its an artists acrylic tube paint wich i'm gonna attempt to thin and airbrush! and the interiors going to be pearl white.

The paint is a real long shot, but going to give it a go when the weather pics up a bit.

I read an article in a certain well known model magazine back along. about using artists acrylic paints and I thought i'd give it a shot.

I,m planning on using an Artists acrylic tube paint. See pics.

Going to thin it with the tamiya thinner and add a drop or two of the flow improver to act as a surfactant and stop the paint from beading. I'm hoping it will dry satin as thats the look I'm going for. Just bit of a experiment

The cars looking real good. I like where this is going.

In regards to the orange paint, play with it for a bit and make sure Tamiya's thinner is compatable with the tube acrylic. The flow enhancer is almost a must, for the reasons stated.

My worry wouldn't be the airbrushing as much as after the spraying. I'm wondering how well the finish will hold up. I have tubes of that paint for figure work, and they seem durable after brushing. I thin with distilled water when using these for painting my stuff.

Good looking build so far Adam. I'm with you on the no headlights idea - here's a 37 Chev I built, looks much less bug-eyed without them.37Chev2.jpg

Not much been happening lately, but hears a quick update. I couldn’t get the front end to sit low enough and still have room for the engine sump etc to fit. So I grafted the front clip from a 1957 Chevy Bel Air onto the 36 Ford Chassis. I am playing with the Idea of a quick change for the rear end.
