First....
Let me apologize Skidsters , for not visiting the forum more often.

Don't think/know if I've posted this '48 here...so here she goes.

This is a multi-piece kit that has had a bit of work done to it.  LOL
From the Revell '48 , I used the fender fadeaways.
A set of smoothie wheel covers are '36 Ford.
The rest is from the kit.
Chassis has been stepped at the rear..trunk floor raised.
Trunk lid opened and trimmed. Gas / Oil / H2O cans from  Fujimi
with handles added and Rail Road rub on lettering.
Half moon styrene used to lead in fenders.
Front fender reveal extended to mid door.
Curve side to body...works like a charm.
Carson top got the knife , new rear window , new side windows.
Paint is Dupli-Color dark canyon red over red oxide primer.
Top is white primer.
yada yada yada...

Fantastic work, Joker. I've got one of those Testors 48's stalled for some time. That multi piece body is a real bear. You did a superb job of it.

Fantastic stuff ...great colours.

I had one of these kits some years ago, and never finished it.
I think it ended up in my model scrapyard - I know better now.

Thanks Y'all...
This second multi-piece started out as a 5 dollar glue bomb.
Just had to rescue it. Added the Revell caddy grill to it with
a custom grill surround.New side trim and rounded trunk lines.
Original top got the chop.

WOW, you are the '48 king! A lot of hours and thought went into the red rod. Making the interior as good as the custom body is icing on that red velvet cake!
The blue one fits in beautifully as a partner and saving a glue bomb makes you more than skilled! Y'all take a bow! We're most grateful for the fab fotos.
