Thanks guys - this was my first '40 Ford, you can see why they're so popular in the street rodding world as well as the model building hobby.

Great job Jim. I love your choice of color. The 40 Standard coupe is one of my all time favorites. It's not hard at all to see we hy you took a Best in Show!

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the comments on the '40 Ford.

The paint is Zero Candy Red over a Zero medium flake silver base with 2-pack clear.

The engine is a small block Ford from one of the Revell '32 kits with a gearbox from the spares box as the one it came with was too wide for the x-member on the chassis.  I've provided a picture below:



The wheels are from the Revell '32 roadster kit and the interior is a tuck and roll from Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland to give the car a bit more of a traditional feel.

Cheers, Jim
