First one done for '13! This one has a Mustang II front suspension (nabbed from a Monogram '37 Ford), wheels and carbs from the Revell Tweedy Pie, and a scratchbuilt finned cylinder head. Started out as the Teague stock car kit.

Oh wow, that's another beauty, Chuck. Don't tell me you are going to go towards SHINY now! LOL!

That's really cool... but I can't help but think it would have looked even better with a white roof (to complement the wide whites)... ;)

Looks like you highlighted the grooves in the foiled areas somehow? Nice touch, it gives a more realistic depth to those areas.

Nice! Where'd you get the hood ornament? Love the WW, 5 spokes, and 6 shooter.

Thanks guys!

Thought of the white roof, but I didn't want it to resemble the '53 box art car too closely, you know. B) Weird you mention my highlighting of the grooves in the foiled areas, as I did nothing of the sort.

Nice! Where'd you get the hood ornament? Love the WW, 5 spokes, and 6 shooter.

That's the stock '52 hood ornament- I believe it's in the '53 kit box too even though the '53 replaced it with the scoop. Look for parts 61 and 62 on the chrome sprue.

You never cease to amaze me Chuck, how fast you turn out these model's is awesome. You can do shiny just as well as patina my friend.
