I am new to this forum, but have been back to modeling for about 3 years now. Here is a 1932 Ford, Monogram Classic Cruiser, I finished this past weekend. This was a really fun bulid. Only wish I had taken some WIP photos, as the interior tub is really nice. I painted it Testors Aztek Pearl Blue (airbrush), finished with Testors Clear coat Laquer.

I now see why the '32 Ford is such a popular model. I want to build several more.

Hi,

Nice build of a classic kit - the good news for you is that Revell have made several variants of this kit and the aftermarket provides lots of goodies for them as well. You did a good job with the hood - it takes a bit of work to get them to fit as well as yours does.

Super clean build! I've always prefered models (and 1:1 cars for that matter) that rely on craftsmanship and execution rather than "in-your-face" bling and radical design. You've nailed it with this subtle and tasteful rod.

I'm glad you want to build more, 'cause I want to see more.

Thanks for all the kind comments. This was indeed a very fun build

Glad you noticed Jim. The hood fit was the very first thing I did when I started this kit. I glued the 3 pieces together and then spent an hour holding the hood in place with the body and frame until the glue set.
