  1. I did have fun, and thanks!
  2. I purchased a '29 Model A roadster frame and body at NNL and started this project about three years ago, and began to post the progress here. I guess I ran out of steam, other things became more interesting, whatever. Maybe it's better suited for the Bring Out Your Dead contest, lol. I dug it out last week and began to work on it again. I don't think any two things (except the wheels) came from the same kit. Body is an AMT '29 Ford roadster, frame is a AMT '32 Ford, rear tires are Stephens International whitewalls (sadly discontinued), front are AMT whitewalls. Steering wheel, fir
  3. Making progress. It came apart easily as the orange colored glue had become very weak. I think I'll keep the fenders not his one and go for a two tone paint scheme (no rust this time). This neat club plaque was hiding inside the body of the kit.

  5. Got this nice older AMT '29 Model A on eBay for $4. Body was brush painted, the other parts that were painted were brush painted, but with acrylics it looks like. All the pieces are there except the front bumper. What should I do with this?
  6. We're going to call this parts box 32 Ford done (except gluing the steering wheel in). Thanks for looking. New firewall, floor, and interior tub was made from sheet styrene and Wee Scapes Corrugated Siding. Wood is wood grain adhesive backed wallpaper. Seats are Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland P-86 1/25 "Rat Rod" Seats. Rear tires are old Stevens International 902 whitewalls. New windows are just clear plastic.
  7. I can't remember how to switch a topic I created from WIP to Under Glass. Can anyone refresh my memory?
  8. This can be moved to Under Glass

  9. Ok, final update before it's done: Got the bomber seats painted and made a small wood platform for them to sit on. They may sit a little bit too far back, but that's fine. Flathead engine was painted with Rust-O-Leum's Leafy Green spray. I swapped out the wheels for a set of wire wheels from an older AMT 32 Ford kit that was in the parts box. I also swapped out the rear tires. I had AMT piecrust slicks, but I think these Stevens International 902 whitewalls look must better (they're impossible to find now, which is a shame). Stevens International 902 whitewalls
  10. Update: I cut a piece of square styrene stock in half diagonally and mounted to sections, one on each side of the rails to keep the new "wood" floor in place. The body will be channelled over the frame, so neither the wood floor or the styrene stock will be visible. The frame got a nice coat of Navy Aggressor Gray. The shifter and gear box cover have been added to the floor. I've also switched out the steelie wheels for the a set of AMT 32 Ford wire wheels. I broke on of them trying to get the axle attached. I didn't remember them being so fragile. Luckily, I have a replacement
  11. Quick update: Been throwing some salt, paint, and rust at this and am happy at this point. The idea is that the hood and radiator shroud are from a different vehicle. I'll paint the rear and part of the sides with some Testors dullcote to remove some of the sheen.I may also swap out the steelies for the old AMT 32 Ford wire wheels.
  12. So here's how the Navy Aggressor Gray paint came out. I think it may need sanding, another salting, then another coat of paint. Rough, ain't it? Maybe a little too rough for a 1:1 representation.
