Here's one I got done before I went back to work. A rebuild of a AMT 32 roadster channeled, mostly kit parts with new decals made by Bernard Kron he did a great job still a good looking kit.
These full-fendered channeled Deuces are soooo... late 50's, especially with kit flames, and they are best done with the AMT kit because of the way the body is curved to match the fenders. This one is archetypal, even down to the color choice and those second issue flames. Love it! So cool...
I just couldn't remember doing those second series decals, especially since I can't print white. I looked and looked through my archives and drew a blank. Then I reviewed our pm's and realized they aren't by me at all! Credit where credit is due - they're by Greg Holland. I got them from him and had him send them to you as a big Thanx for all your help in getting me a first series original that I could redraw for my fake AMT Revell roadster. Greg did his usual top-notch job and they look great on your model!
Has a perfect late-50s Survivor look! The flames are a cool touch (hot??) and are period-correct in a way that takes discipline to achieve. I like to call 'em "naive flames", back before the seaweed-style flame job became the formula. I like the full fendered/channeled combo...don't see that very often! And the chrome reversed wheels on super-cushion tires rock. I need to get me some of those rear tires!
This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!
RodBurNeR: omg condensing years of model supply, tools and paints into one three drawer cabinet is tough! just the common use stuff, rest will be in boxes in a closet unless needed. this is rough lol

superflekmoonbird: Thanks Paul...they look good. Air temp may be part of it...for comparison some rattle cans (Tamiya) mention 50 degree F and above, Testors Lacquer says 70 degrees..
