  • Nu-Roara 37 Ford Roadster Kit

    I picked this kit up from Bob Beers at a train show back in November. Really nice for $10.00! Has a trailer too. I painted it with Rustoleum Sea Side and cleared it. Still in the process of assembly.

    I may be wrong, but I think....in 37, you could get a cabriolet. Maybe a roadster both had a folding top and were single seater.s The two seat version was either a phaeton or a convertible sedan. I may be wrong, I'll see what pix I can find.

      OK, in looking at pictures of real cars, not Revell models, all the two seaters appear to be phaetons or convertible sedans and they do have a small trunk, but maybe not as big as on the HO body. All the real roadsters and convertibles only have one seat and a long trunk lid. Might be that this body is actually a pretty good copy of a convertible sedan, but they were all 4 doors. Hard to make true scale body in HO.

              Great detail work on the trailer. I can't even see stuff that small!

                  Like Matt, I cant see, so I use 3 or 5 power glasses. You've got a steady hand, but they dont make glasses for that. It's definitely a convertible/cabriolet, if you peruse the old Ford adds. Roadsters dont have back seats. My sense of it is that Nurora just jazzed the name up because the top is down and the driver has his elbow on the door sill ; )

                  Note: After breaking the mirrors off of mine, I used clear silicone for mounting those vulnerable mirrors. Spares the paint during carnage, and cleans off easily for a stress free re-mount after the fact. I use it for windscreen, headers, exposed driver heads, and anything else that I'd prefer to see torn away cleanly.

                    I used Crystal Clear to mount the mirrors. It is like Elmer's glue. Clear silicone is a good idea too. We will see how long they last!

                      It is finished. Of course I knocked the center of the wheel trying to install them on the axle. I got to make some new center caps. The trailer hasn't made it a lap without falling off!

                          Great finish! Shiny and smooth. 'Spose you could rotate the trailer wheels forward. I've done the same blow out myself.

                            You're a bad influence. I just got a coupla Turquoise Hot Rod shells for restoration!

                              Nice finish. Good to see all your cars in scale to each other and actually able to race and not too wide.
