Absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the WIP photos and techniques you used to achieve such spectacular results. I don't know how you manage to achieve such dust-free conditions for the final showcase photos; that's almost as impressive as the model itself haha.
Dust..... ugh..... Luckily, with this one it wasn't too bad. Maybe because it wasn't cold when the photos were taken, & no static electricity in the air. I have a huge makeup brush that I use on the model between shots. Even then, a speck will sometimes slip by, it's an easy fix in Photoshop. What's worse are specks on the poster board. Those can be a pain sometimes.
.... Seeing the profile shots on your '36, makes me wonder why Ford didn't carry over the suicide doors to the 3W coupes from the '34 3W coupes, it would have been a natural style wise adding to the already flowing lines of the '36 3W coupes. ...
Thanks! Yes, I think that slanted door line would have fit well in the design. I guess the designers figured 3 years was enough & time for a change.
If I recall correctly, it had more to do with safety issues than styling...........ditching the forward opening door design.
Hmmm, reflections in hubcaps doesn't seem to bother the Rodder's Journal. But, I think that they also edit a lot out of reflections, too, like I could have done on the body.
I think out of scale rims, tires that are not flat on the bottom & no valve stems are a good indication of a model vs. a 1:1. No valve stems on this one, maybe on the next one.
I forgot all about weighted tires and valve stems! LOL! You're right! That is even more of a give-away when it comes to 'fact or fiction'! As far as the reflections are concerned, yours was not as easy to tell as others have been where you can more clearly see a 'giant' taking the photo (or a large camera or hand); compared to a 'normal sized' person in the reflection! LOL!
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.
