hi all ,

this build started out with a revell kit of the john buttera model t touring

i used the parts and made a t-bucket body out of the touring body , in the end the new body was made out of 8 pieces and a lot of shaping

a lot of scrath work on the details , the idea was to end up with a shiney rod but looking like its used and abused without becoming ratty ...

i love this shot and how it makes the red paint light up and even creates some orange due to the sun

I've got one of these kits that I've never opened knowing how other bodiesin the series are so badly undersized. This could get me to bust open the plastic on it.
