Chopped 1939 Ford Sedan

This has been an on/off project for almost 18 months, mainly due to bodywork and paint issues, it fought me all the way.

It's the AMT 1939/40 sedan with a mild chop that was covered in a 'workbench' thread. The old worn out sidetrim was replaced with new styrene rod.

The chassis was adapted from the R-M 1937 Ford sedan which had the wheelbase shortened and was narrowed at the rear to accommodate the wheels/tyres from the recent Revell 1936 Ford Convertible/coupe kit. Brake discs are by Pegasus.

Paint is Tamiya, Metallic Purple with Translucent Purple clear to darken it and add depth. Thanks for looking!

I followed along with you on this & I love it. The oh so subtle chop leaves the casual observer scratching his head. Beautiful work.

Nice, clean rod! Great paint job! The chop is subtle. I would have to see it beside a stock body to notice it. Nice work!

You really should have sanded out those ejector pin marks on the underside of the running boards.

I kinda cringe sometime when I see the word 'chopped' in the thread title, but this is sublime. So subtle. So good.
