Here are a few I have been fiddling with over the past couple of weeks.
The '34 wears home made decals, and almost done - but no engine yet.
The '32 Phaeton is just a 'bitsa' from my parts boxes.
The '32 Tudor is only a painted body with carefully balanced wheels.

Wow, that's some output! The '34 five window coupe is great and the copper paint on the sedan is very good. Thanx for sharing!

Nice projects. That 32 sedan is a real beauty. Nice color choice.

Ron: All three are great, but the 32 2-door is the best of the bunch. Love the copper color.

WIP's ?
I am an erratic model builder, and adhere to the chaos theory, Al.

To date there are 160 kit boxes stacked in my loft, many of which contain unfinished models
- some contain 2 or 3 incomplete vehicles.
With only 18 fully finished models on the shelf, I have a further 103 cars, trucks, or bikes I have yet to complete,
plus those I have yet to start.

Enthusiasm burns brightly whenever I open a new kit,
but before I can finish, I usually become seduced by another, like a smile and a flash of ankle from a pretty brunette,
and consequently I now have a harem of unfinished models.

Change it to a Redhead, and you have my building style down pat.

Finishing models is always hard. I think a builder needs to tell himself, like any job around the home, it ain't over until it's finished. When I built I told myself I'm doing this to please myself, share fotos with others and to have something to leave behind as to how really was. Since going to other pursuits I keep that in mind and get things done for me and for others.
