  1. Is the 1/25 AMT '32 Ford Tudor Sedan kit lost forever? Granted, with the newer and better 1/25 Revell '32 Ford Tudor Sedan more easily available having the older AMT version back is hardly necessary, but it does offer some unique things, and even for the sake of nostalgia, I think it still holds some appeal. If anyone here has one of these, please take some pics and share with teh class. Pics from eBay listings, just to show the contents: AMT's generic Ford hot rod decal sheet:

    32 ford

    Starting new project. 32 ford, chopped the top. Compared to the stock one one the left. Opened the doors. Going to open the cowl vent also. The rear deck lid is already cut out. Using a flathead out of the 37 revell truck kit. Wheels from scale Motorsport. Have the model car garage photo etch grill. Do not have a color yet. Built a couple ,but not like this. Hope you like.
  3. This is a car that I had my eye on 18 years ago. I bought Revell's 32 Ford Highboy kit and wanted to build a replica. Life happens and it was mothballed ...... until now !! I have these flame decals from a Revell '37 Ford Coupe kit that I was thinking of using, either that, or I stencil my own flames on there ? TCB, Adam
  4. Another just for fun build. The goal was to make the outside look traditional, but have everything underneath modern. Like a best of both worlds. It's the old AMT Phantom Vickie kit with a few changes made to it. The chassis is straight out of the box. The engine is from the kit also. But, I "backdated" it with a set of fake Hemi valve covers and a modernized Hilborn style fuel injection setup from an AMT '53 Ford pickup. Headers are from the Revell '50 F-1. The wheels and tires are from a Revell '32 sedan with the rears deepened. They're painted with Stainless Steel. The only changes to the i
  5. Hi all, it's been a long time since I posted a finished build here on the forum, but finally I found the time to upload some images. The Bonneville Coupe as I call it is basically a box stock 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe without the fenders. Modifications are the wheel and tire combo, and the straight pipe headers. The paint is Testors Green Metal Flake(1630) from a can, no clear overtop. For more updates on my builds, please follow me on Instagram @scaled_models as I update there regularly. Cheers!
  6. The MPC '32 Ford Sedan Delivery from the "Switchers" series returns, this time with Coca-Cola decals:
  7. 32 sedan conversion from a pic i came across. running boards are from la baren kit i believe which were longer, trunk hump was a hood from a 55 chevy. the 48 plymouth woody is a star model resin. i like using super glue to fill, because you can see all the cuts of the process. enjoy
  8. this is a orange create body on stacy kit, then the b400 resin body, my for door conversion, then "da bus" this is still a project, diecast front of a truck i think it was, the bus body i found in the alley taking trash out on day (musta dropped outta the sky) the bus body has been through it, i put a 60 chevy truck front, shortened it twice but didnt like it. was fun making the bus fit the windsheild frame of the truck
  9. The weather is starting to get warmer in Northern Virginia and I'm getting the fever to build again. I figured I'd start out with a bang by bringing this old AMT Trophy Series 32 Ford Roadster back to life. It's an older kit, and some might gasp at the thought of chopping it up, but that's what they're here for. I paid $11 for the box, which included this stripped down roadster and another, almost pristine stock version. As the seller told me, "The roadster is rough.." and rough it is. It looks like it was put together with a hot glue gun or clear caulking. Certain adhesives interact poorly
  10. Just finished this one [URL=http://s891.photobucket.com
  11. I'm calling this one finished. It's a resin chopped 32 Ford sedan body on the 32 frame that came with the Revell 30 Model A coupe kit. Grille & shell and some other parts are from that kit. The rest is parts box stuff - Little Red Wagon hemi, axles, and rear wheels. Front wheels are 13 inchers from a 69 Corvair kit. Taillights are 62 Imperial units. They look sort of like bullets - seemed appropriate. I was going for a slightly ratty military-themed rod look. It's way less than perfect - some glue smears, ill-fitting rear window, carbs that moved while the glue dried, etc., but overall, I
  12. Hey guys, I just built the Revell Model A coupe and the extra frame in the kit was calling me to build another rod for it, so I got this Flintstone 32 chopped sedan resin body, and started building this military-themed rod. I'm using parts from the Model A kit plus a lot of parts box stuff. Hemi engine, rear wheels, and both axles are from the Little Red Wagon kit. Front wheels are Corvair 13 inchers. I'll use the army decals from the Model A kit, too. I used some powdered chalk for just a touch of rust. Paint is Krylon satin olive green. It's almost done!
  13. This is a 32 ford rat rod I built back in 2001. Chopped and channeled over a Zed frame. Flathead V8, aftermarket finned heads, scratch built carb breathers and headers. Piecrust slicks out back, whitewalls & steelies up front.
  14. This is a build that almost never was. It started as an eBay purchase gone wrong - a glue bomb that was advertised as "complete" & "some minor, partial assembly". I was going to throw out the model when I decided to attempt my first "Chop". This is the result -chopped top (obviously) -stretched hood to accommodate the rake of the grill -scratch built vent on the cowl -grafted the trunk from the Revell 5-window kit (No - its not a direct fit!!) -resin wheels+tires -everything else was sourced from my "parts box" Finish is flat black, over red oxide primer, over matt aluminum BMF
  15. So, I decided to also build a Deuce Roadster that is unusual for me when it comes to street rods. I am talking about a somewhat old school full fendered Roadster "Delux". I made one like that Long time ago from the old Monogram Roadster (the 1:24 one). Honestly it was a disaster. LOL. But I have been meaning to build something similar for the past 20 years (almost). Well, like I needed another project….but I figured I have enough parts to build like ten of these, so I started it anyway. First order of business was to glue the fenders to the frame, the gas tank (from a 3 window) and the front
  16. Hello everyone Inspired by all of your awesome builds, and the latest Mad Max film, I'm gonna bash TWO 32 Ford 5-Window Coupes together and see what I come up with. Planning to use the deep steelies from the AMT Dodge Monaco all around, along with fat MPC-issue Blue Streak Dragway Specials up front, and mega fat Firestones (Revell J-2000/Beretta Pro Street kits) at the rear. Started off by joining the two Hemi beasts together.
  17. My next project will be another hotrod Its a very early stage, got some off the parts from the sprue and engine glued. Now looking and thinking how to make it channeled Got some colors in mind but they might change so will tell later what I decided but it will be candy.
  18. Finished up my version of Stacey David's Rat Roaster last night. Ditched the corny Moon tank and decided to go without the rear fenders but use the kit's front motorcycle fenders. I was glad to be done with this one. I disliked the "padded" interior look, so I drilled out the holes with a variable speed Dremel. I must have not followed the directions properly because the motorcycle fenders do not sit over the tires right. And for the first time in years, the back side of my headlights seemed to get crazed from what little glue I used. The tail lights are adhesiv
  19. Hi Guys, This is a project that I started in 2011 but got put to one side for about a year and a half. It stalled when I realised the floor and firewall wouldn't fit as the engine is slightly further back in the chassis. I'm currently working on making a new floor, firewall, etc. It has scratch built frame rails that incorporate the suspension from the Revell prostreet Willys kit. The fenders were modified to take the wide tyres at the back (with the pickup bed given tubs). The engine is the hemi block from the Revell 5 widow kit with other bits taken from various places. I am
  20. This is an update to my original post of last year ( http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=77263&page=2 ) OK, nearly a year later, I'm here to finish this Monogram 32 Ford project, and finish it in a day nonetheless. First off, I finally realized that the chromed tree of parts was included, however they have never been chromed. So I retract the statement in my original post that seller had clear coated them. You can see in the photo, below, it does look that way. I know that I'll need to trim the firewall and open up the area for the transmission and
  21. Hey guys, another work in progress (about 95% done, just needs tail lights and head lights): Nothing very fancy with this one... A Revell '32 Ford 3-Window Coupe that I picked up on eBay for cheap a few months ago. The funny thing about this kit is that it used to be my favorite of the 32's, but after working on a gluebomb AMT version earlier this year, I just cannot get into this kit. The dimensions seem weird, everything feels too big or too small, too tall, etc for 1/25 scale. Does it make sense to say that the Revell-Monogram kit doesn't feel as easy to modi
  22. Last night I finished up my month long project of rebuilding an old AMT glue bomb 32 Ford I bought in a lot from my friend Pat. What I learned along the way is this: 1) kitbashing and restoring old kits is a lot of work, but fun as well. 2) I am not a contest builder. I build what I like and how I like and do it for myself and not for a blue ribbon. This is what I started with, a box stock, old AMT 5 Window 32 Ford. There was plenty of glue used on this kit. As I began to take it apart, the immense amount of glue used was becoming apparent. I initially scored and cut off the front fe
  23. I'll have more pictures loaded up tomorrow at my gallery page, along with build pics http://www.modelcars...lery&image=5685 but for now, this one is done! Happy Easter!
