  • 1940 Ford [Finished]

    This is a old AMT 1/32 kit that I found as a built up. I disassembled it and soaked the body in some Super Clean to strip off the old paint. I am mounting it on a Artin chassis. Wheels are a set of Monogram Halibrands. More to come!

                  Thanks! I got the interior done. The driver is from a real old Revell kit.

                    It is finished. I had to soak the windows in Super Clean too as they were covered in paint. I then just gave them a polish. Trim is done with chrome foil and Molotow pen. A pair of silicone tires and a bit of lead weight on the chassis and it is good to go.
