I've steered clear of the IMC '48 for a number of reasons...but this build is proof that the kit can look fantastic. Wow! Killer paint, and the chop has fantastic flow. I like how unobtrusive all of the frame and suspension modifications appear. Very careful work on display, and it's paying off.
Ok I don’t get it. Did you spray the driftwood first then the metallic red?

It needed another coat after sanding out some fuzzies. 3M tape was used to attach the hood,doors and trunk back on without touching the body. This prevents the paint from sticking the panels together and get even paint coverage. Working on the Flattie and rolling stock.
Work .... ugh ! Anyway... did some work on the Flattie. Added the finned valve covers and headers from the Revell '48 Ford. Parts stash carbs and homemade upper radiator hoses. Flattie didn't have any distributor so I made one. Pictures....
Now let's see, you've got a black spider on an ACME clothespin, and another one studying your instructions. It looks to me that you have an infestation going on on your bench. How do you get any modeling done with all them critters crawling around?
Seriously, I love those radiator hoses too. This whole model has turned into quite a sharp looker. Gary
I've been building custom models since the 50's. Does that make me experienced, or just old? I'm old! Gary Hatstat
