AMT's Bantam Roadster from Chuck

When I started this kit I was going to build it box stock but then I was trying to drill out the end of the headers to make them look better and the drill blew out the side so I had to make new heards from aluminum tubing and my box stock creation became this. I found a better fuel pump in my parts box. and then detailed the roadster with everything I could think of.

No this isn't the Revell Part Pack bodythis is a reissue of the old MPC kit only being AMT now. It seems to me like there's something not the same but I cann't say what it is and I may be thinking the Winged Express kit

It really looks good. Did you clearcoat over the decals? If you did, what brand of paint? :D

yes i clear coat over the decals as soon as I'm satisfied with the color coat I then add about 3 thin coats of clear. I use plasti-kote paints for doing the bodies of my models. Most of the time I use rattle cans but this model I used my airbrush.

Hey Chuck

I have just been thinking about coil over shocks for my 32 ford, are the ones on the front of you bantam kit parts or scratch built, because they look really cool

If they are Kit shocks how did you paint the springs??

If they are scratch built where did the sping come from ??

I'm an old rattlecan fan,but after looking at the pictures over and over, I think someday I might have to try a spraygun. Even my wife says I should get one. You can't beat that. I said earlier that your car is cool. I should have just said one word. WOW! :D
