Clank. That’s generally a sound heard in my work area only when I bang my forehead on the bench vise clamped to the coffee table. Now I’ve found that I can make that same noise by dropping a Deuce on the workbench, if that Deuce is ACME Trading Company’s 1/18 Diecast ‘32 Ford Three-Window Coupe Kit. Emphasis on the word kit, as this is quite a bit more than just an unassembled large scale diecast. Wonder of wonders, with the exception of the comfort of styrene and the bigger parts, this box of stuff fulfills nearly every ‘32 related desire that I‘ve ever had.
