40 Ford--Parts Is Parts!

So here it's almost June already, and what have I been up to in terms of my time consuming hobby that squashes my obsessive compulsive disorder (sometimes?)

Still working on a box-stock 40 Ford.  Even hard for me to believe it's not done yet!


So I have a new house and have been busy at work--so when I have 15-20 minutes I run up to my work room and glue together a few more parts!


As I said before--this is a cool kit!  Fun to build!  Interior is silver lacquer with green acrylic accents...


Ready to be dropped in.....a few masking problems here and there, but good enough (and--I never retouch any photos!)


Really hard for me not to wire the engine--but I didn't!


Frame is coming out pretty clean--almost ready for final assembly.


Body is Testor's One Touch Lacquer--I used this paint to save myself time!  And--nice crud by the fender--that's just me being to lazy to clean the body before taking this pix--it will clean up OK.


OK, wheels/tires have a Shabo label treatment.  Like the super-low-rez photo eh? Whitewalls are dry transfer...didn't come out perfectly centered, but it's OK.  It will look good on the finished model--which hopefully I will be done with soon.  But I still have to prep all the body trim--arg!  That's probably the toughest job of all! Until next time--I'll be what I am, Solitary Man.....

It is really very interesting to see a build in making, even if it is a scale model one. Scale model cars have

always caught my attention, which brings me to pen down my ideas. I remember a friend's woody wagon (was a chevy I

think) scale model in a box which he assembled. His passion came out with a force that he actually got a woody

wagon body and started a complete rebuild out of used car parts. It did take him nearly a year, since finances

were low, but eventually the woody was ready to hit the road. Hats off to people like you who are such an

inspiration for many!

I was looking around dollarama when I came across some 1/32 scale cars. I can't imagine that they are too good, but just wondering if you, or anyone out there has done some of them. The price was good (two bucks) but I have way too many projects on my shelf.
