AMT 41' Woody 2door/ Convertible w/Hemi

Recommended Posts

Howdy all,,well Im thinking of spring coming soon,,summer soon after,,got in kindof a fair weather building mood on this one. Its kindof a WIP side project I work on from time to time. Its the AMT 41' Woody,,but its missing the back doors,,and its top,,and a Hemi somehow got in there,,other than that its somewhat stock. Engine is totally from the leftover prts bx's. As are the tires+ rims. Gonna do a 2 tone dark blue seat insets,,with the white interior. Made little floor mats for it,,kindof a summertime ride,,all I need now is the $$ for the 1:1 car! Cheers! :DIMG_2896_zps7b83a033.jpgIMG_2897_zps59ac17fd.jpgIMG_2886_zps7fe8e928.jpgIMG_2893_zps51465459.jpg

Hey there,,thanks for the kind words,,its painted w/ "Painters touch" brand from the hardware store,,"Gloss Spa Blue" Just 1 coat of Flt Blk primer,,and 2 coats of the blue,,no clear coat over that,just as is. Its got decals for "woodgrain" for the inner panels{light tan colors}so Ill try to put those in,,I may trim the outer edges of the decals before install,,so they dont bungle up in all the corners. I was going to do this kit stock out of bx,,but I thought ,,I have alot of OOB kits done,,and wanted a street rod/strip// revised design car,,pretty much what I would do if I had the $$ to do 1:1 car,, so I tried my hand at chopping a bit,,experimenting ect,,got a scratch built 4 point roll bar done w/ padding for it,,just got to paint it. So,,its gettin there,,thanks for the visit! Happy BuildingIMG_2902_zps4ebaa74a.jpgIMG_2901_zpsba80fb70.jpgIMG_2906_zpsfbc64cdf.jpgIMG_2907_zps25d86cf7.jpg

Awesome ! I started a very similar project a couple years ago & just pulled it out again. I still haven't figured out how to post pics here, but if you're on facebook, go to station wagons in scale & check it out ! Love what you've done here !

Thanks Bartster,,pics are easy,,use the link insert icon at top of post bx,,should work ok. Got a bit more done,,firewall,radiator+elec fan,,hoses. Still need to smooth things a bit,,and final detail paint. Its gonna be able to display w/body on or off. Roll bar worked out good,,used 1/16th scale parts sprue frames with the curves in it,,works cool for roll bar builds. And slipped some larger dia tubing over the roll bars,,and wil paint Flt blk after roll bar paint dries. Gonna make some belts for seats. should be a cool one for the shelf,,thanks for visiting!
