Custom 1932 Ford Victoria "Lightning Express"


Recommended Posts

I started with a 1932 Ford Victoria.  Used the custom plans and pretty much built it to stock.  I painted it with Vallejo Model Air Red.  The interior is Vallejo Model Air Blue.  I used the left over decals from the Revell Kenworth W900.

Really nice, love the colour, but one question - how do the exhaust gases escape?

Good question.  That was one of the only issues I had with the model.  The stock exhaust did not line up and left little room for modification.  I just left it the way you see it, imagining that you take the covers off the ends before you fire the engine up :D

Ok thanks! Makes sense.

Cheers,
