Thanx James! Looking at your project has kinda gave me a hankering to try my hand at another one of these kits. To my eye, they actually have a little better proportions than the Revell kit. From what I remember, the chassis is pretty nice.
Worked on the chassis a bit. Dropped the I-beam and the steering tie rod arms. Then I stepped the rear chassis and raised the rear crossbar. Moved the gas tank forward a bit and raised it. After this was done,I dropped in a raised trunk floor. Mocked up the body on the chassis for a look see. Oh... I forgot... new thinner skirts were made with a slight lip. Tried to make them follow the rear fender shape ... kinda . Only the white wall shows on the rear and the top of the white wall on the front... whew! Going for the speed boat stance and not the airbag/laying frame look. (Not that there's anything wrong with that ) The weather hasn't been good for any primer... too humid. Frenched in a set of Revell '32 Ford buckets.. the larger ones. Frenched an antenna with a teardrop opening on the right fender. Going to attempt a Caddy grill using the one in the Testors '48 Ford Convertible. That's all I got for an update... on to the pictures.
James; thank you for your like; i've got a book,that shows how to chop a 1:1'48 coupe, it doesn't go into detail with pictures,so it loses me a bit, what you're showing here; i can see, and understand; thanks !
spex84: Glad to ear it, Bob! I'm doin' OK too. Just not spending much time at the bench these days.

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.
