This 1/25 model is made almost entirely of modified stuff (in a variety of materials) rescued from my parts bin. The only new purchases for the model's completion were the photo-etch grille and licence frame from Model Car Garage, as well as the aluminum tubing used for a bunch of the mechanical parts, etc. I believe the wheels are from the Revell/Monogram Deuce roadster kit, and the tires are a complete mystery as to their origin. The simulated tuck-n-roll upholstery is formed from model railroad building-siding, and the tri-carb Oldsmobile J2 motor was modified and detailed from a Revell parts pack Cadillac motor. Suspension is individual-leaf transverse springs/shackles fabricated from aluminum sheet, and the radiator is fabricated from polished brass sheet and mesh.
Paint is automotive custom mixed basecoat/clearcoat

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.
