OK, so it's nearly nine years since the last update. Man does the time fly by! The paint hasn't been touched since the last picture posted back then. By the way, since all my previous pictures were posted via peebucket they are no longer visible. You can however go to my "in progress" folder in my Fotki (link under the picture below) until I figure out how to move the old pictures to this new folder.
I was trying to do my version of Richard Gregg's sedan turned pickup, and planned to follow that plan. Even now there's no way I can get my paint to look like his so I'll veer off of that path. Also, though I never did a picture of the model with the Plymouth wheelcovers, since taking it out of the box again last week I realized I just didn't like the look of the model with them. Now it has the "Boranni" wires that look a whole lot classier on it and really are a vast improvement in its appearance. The hood is polished and finished but the body will need sanding and more red metallic added. I really hope to have one more day this year to do that painting. Hosted on Fotki I'm always happy to get your comments! Gary
I've been building custom models since the 50's. Does that make me experienced, or just old? I'm old! Gary Hatstat
That looks really good! These Shoebox Fords make great Pickups as well. I like the color a lot and those wire wheels are a great choice, too. Hopefully we will see this beauty finished sooner than later.
