Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. Deuce Days Vicky In celebration of the Pacific NorthWest Deuce Days our club, SPAM (Scale Plastic Auto Modellers) decided to host a display of scale Dueces and alike vehicles. I had originally envisioned completing eight examples, after all I had eighteen months. Two weeks ago I realized that even having scaled back to a Bonneville style Roadster, and a heavily modified 5 Window Coupe on the DD Twin Engine rail frame, both projects were very much WIP!! It was then that I whipped out the recently re-released 32 Ford Victoria, an original kit hardening back to the early days of AMT. I had built this kit in the early 60s, then molded in black and, not painting the body, had it built in a Saturday afternoon. This kit suited my two week schedule and would allow me to deviate from excessive detail and long builds. Finished it up time yesterday and the show is on tomorrow. There have been many rods out on the streets and the town is quite excited to host the largest gathering of Deuces anywhere! Vancouver Island prides itself on winding rural roads. Living out in the Cowichan Valley we can hear the exhaust roars as various rod runs are being held today. Below is a listing of the build and some photos of the Deuce Days Vicky. Cheers Misha Features: Channeled body and suspension lowered a scale two inches all the way around. Rad has been chopped by three scale inches and uses the fan from the 34 Ford. The firewall was scratch built with Plastastruct sheet and finished with Alclad Chrome. Wishbones and front axle have been drilled out. Brake lines installed and the exhaust is from the recent 30 Ford Coupe. Wheels are stock wires with 29 Ford hubcaps. Headlights are from the 34 Ford and taillights from the RM Deuce Series. Paint is Humbrol Sky Blue enamel with a white primer canvas top. '37 Ford Flathead is from the pick up kit. Generator, starter, fan motor, and plugs were all wired. Fuel lines from the twin 97s were added along with oil pressure gauge line. All chrome was striped and redone with Alclad metallics. Running gear is finished in Tamiya Italian Red. The stock interior side panels were detailed with door framing, lower door panels receiving the same ribbed treatment as the firewall. The custom steering wheel was utilized and control stocks added to the steering column. The rear window was modified to feature a roll down option and the side windows made to pop out. The headliner features the canvas roof underside, red leather sun visors and a rear view mirror. The red leather was achieved with Avejo acrylic paint brushed on.s
