Revell 4 door sedan

I got these kits about 6 months ago to build this.While waiting for decent painting weather and the arrival of parts for my 56 Impala I got them out..

My first thought were to cut through the roof and reassemble things but then the better got to me so I kept the top in tact,,,,Slicing the coupe on the door line and the 2 door to match so when put back. . The sedan got the post cut out to move back for the back door/rear window. The coupe pillar that was left was cut and reunited with the front door. I should have cut them out together in 1 piece..harder to cut but easier to put back. Some finish work and new hole for the rear door handle and then assemble per directions using the 2 door sedan for interior.

One of the biggest problems is that the bodies are not the same thickness......you would think that these 2 related cars would be closer than they are... here it is cleaned up a little more....still more to do...

Looking Gangsterish...the rear door handle is the clue..

don't forget to add the rear door hindges.

From one styrene cutter to another..

I would fill the door line and the extra handle hole with stretched sprue ....sand then add the putty.

(makes for smoother body work and less putty shrinkage)

The rain gutter can be sanded away then added with stretched sprue too.

(much easier than trying to match the modification)

Just my two cents....subscribed.

Kenn...I got the couple from the '59 Ford retractable top.

I'll post them up for you...

The "Gang Busters" kit had gangsters,booze and weapons.

Maybe someone here knows if they are made in resin..who knows?

If you are interested in them , I'll trade for some left over '32 suspension parts?

Or even a set of '32 mag wheels.

Switch the bodies to a 34 sedan and you could do Bonnie An Clydes death car useing those figures. Just a morbid thought.

pictures show up every little flaw,,,,,,,in the 50's there was a model railroader that would take pictures as he did his models to find all the minor flaws....some older models might remember John Allen........one of my modeling mentors. :)
