Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Hey all, The ideas have been in my head for a while, so I was glad when I finally made some time last night to get started on a few projects. The first project is the '29 Ford Roadster I'm building for the Mid-Atlantic NNL theme, The Race of Gentlemen. I'll be building it from the AMT Mod Rod / Model A '29 Ford kit. As I've been learning more about Model A's and looking through photos of them online I came across a variation I had not seen before, where the fenders and running board are removed, but the skirt (not sure of the actual name) is left intact as in the photo below. I marked out the areas that would need to be removed with a sharpie and began cutting. The plastic on the newer, Chinese made kits is thinner than the older, USA made kits in my opinion, and was pretty easy to cut through. I used an Exacto blade and scored the straight lines and the curve behind the front fenders. I used nippers to cut out sections so that when I pulled them apart from the main fender assembly it didn't tear off larger areas than I wanted. Based on the photo of the 1:1 '29 Ford, I made sure to cut out the flat vertical areas behind the rear fenders as well. A little trimming and sanding made a big difference and balanced out the appearance on both sides (not shown). I'll trim out the fork area and radiator mount next. I'm happy with the progress I made and it's a good start to this project.
