I wondered what happened to a radiator - then there it was laying down. I'm sure you'll be able to pull this build off quite easily, John. I'm looking forward to seeing the WIP.

Well, there's no doubt in my mind that you can pull this off John! I'm sure you'll do it justice and then some. Can't wait to see this come together!

Hello........thank you all for the interest in this build...........these partial kits will be the donors......I decided to use the Heller 1/24 Renault........it has more of a square body like the Nash........I will combine some of these kits and scratch build what I need........I sanded down the rag top and I will mold it into a hard top.......I opened up the doors,chopped the top and cut open the roof........I will add window frames to the doors,open up the rear window and add all the body moldings latter.........I think I will be able to capture the look of the Nash?........it wont be perfect but,good enough for me.......thanks for looking.

Hello.......thank you all very much for the kind comments......I really do appreciate them.........I am using HO scale: Head Frame Sheave`s for the 60`s style gasser front wheels..........I still need to modify them a little.......I also did some more work on the body.......I added wheel wells ,added more length to the trunk area and made a front window visor........and opened up the rear window........I still need to add the body trim and sand and shape.......just a quick mock-up........thanks for looking.

John, where did you come up with the idea to use the head frame sheave as wheels? Very ingenious.

Stephen.......I cruz over to the HO train store a couple of blocks from my house.........so much stuff you could look all day......I always buy something......... just came across them one day ......thought they might work for front 60`s style gasser wheels......I have used them on a few of my builds already........thanks
