Just got this off my workbench. Had a blast building it.

Here's some details, but I hope the pix speak for themselves.

Body/Frame/Seat from the old Monogram kit. Cowl sectioned 3", lengthened 5". Frame Z'd 4" in front 6" in the back.

Engine from AMT parts pack. Suspension parts from Revell '32 Ford & Tweety Pie.

Scratchbuilt Hallock style windshield and underslung radiator below supercharger. Paint is Tamiya Clear Red over Testors "Diamond Dust" and lots of Alclad.

Whatcha think?

Extremely nice, clean and SHINY :) :) :) . Don't you think the engine might need to be cooled off? Can you share your source of gauges? I like that 4 in 1 deal. What scale is this puppy?
