My ol 'school '30 Ford Mopdel A Coupe is now finished. iIt was inspired by a Model A that I saw in Hot Rod Deluxe July 2016 issue.
1930 Ford Model A Coupe - Monogram (Old Iron Series) 1934 Ford (amt): wheels Replicas Miniatures of Maryland: Hailband Quick Change rear axle, Hot Rod Headlights, dropped front axle, hubcaps Modelhaus tires: Cheater slicks Model Car Garage: Stromberg 97, ignition key Detail Master: Distributor Czech Truck Model: Taillight 3D printed stuff: Roof 101 Cyclone head, carburettor riser, exhaust, Schroeder steering box
Sofa King cool! This project nailed that spindly "early Ford hot rod" look...tons of cool details,including those RMCM resin parts and 3D-printed Roof conversion. It looks like it's just about ready to race the dirt drags in Sweden or Finland. Somehow it has that European feel...I think maybe because I'm remembering photos of a red Model A with white lettering on the door that appeared at some events over there, maybe a few years ago. Beautifully done, and thanks for sharing the WIP photos so we can all see how it was done. Those brake line hangars are something I'll be trying to duplicate soon!
Very nice Model A, it really has that early look and feel on it. Very nicely done model with excellent details here and there. I especially like the bare doors and trunk lid with no upholstery at all. Really nice work.
spex84: Glad to ear it, Bob! I'm doin' OK too. Just not spending much time at the bench these days.

krassandbernie: I'm surprised that only one or two members even noticed the new posts I made in the 'resin' section......and now crickets!

krassandbernie: You'd be getting more done than I have in the past year or two if you do build on the kitchen table! LOL!

EchoBravoSierra: I'm struggling to settle on something to build too. My "working on a model" time has been pulling a box out, digging in it, putting it back up, wash, rinse, repeat.
