1936 Ford -- Dick Tracy style


Recommended Posts

Fist completed build of 2021!  Finished up Dick Tracy's 1936 Ford.  Built to match the 1990 Dick Tracy movie car and be a counter part to my prior build of Breathless Mahoney's 1935 Auburn Speedster.  Interior color matches the movie car (dark green).  Engine color was inspired by the comic book colors throughout the movie.  Enhancements were minimal and include plug wires and dual wiper blades.  The lower body platform (wheel wells and side running boards) were warped out of the box so had to do some straightening.  Some alignment issues remain but at least it sits with all 4 wheels on the ground now.  Enjoy!

Great looking '36. I like the stock build style and the paint finish looks better than when Henry was painting them. The hardest part of this kit is the alignment of the grill / hood and side parts. Getting them all to line up is a test of ones patients.
