MPC 32 Sedan Delivery

I first built this kit as the Truckin' on Down version from the seventies and as one of my first metallic spray paint jobs, it was a bit rough around the edges.  When the Coke version was re-issued I thought I would give it another try, staying as close to the original concept as I could but hopefully removing some of the funkiness.

I used an AMT grille and hood and this improved things noticeably.  I also cut and re-arranged the windshield frame to remove that overweight bottom section and grafted an AMT fuel tank to close up the rear.  I cut the outside edges of the same AMT fender unit to complete the inner edges of the rear fenders that MPC abruptly trimmed for no apparent reason.

It still has some proportion issues - too tall/ narrow - but I am much more comfortable putting this on the shelf than my fifty year old rendition!

Cheers

Alan
