PostSubject: '32 Ford 5w Coupe.   Fri 21 Jun 2013, 1:14 am

Revell '32 5w coupe.


Been poking and prodding at this for a while now, took some time to settle on a direction for it.
This is the inspiration that I finally settled on.


Removed the '32 K member and rear suspension cross member, and replaced with '37 Ford Panel Delivery X member, rear cross member, diff and front and rear suspension.




Flat head from '48 Woodie wtih modified intake from some AMT offering


Resin wheels from ebay, Rear resin tyres from thepartsbox.com, front tyres from '37 panel delivery.


Taxed a sewing pin when Linda was not looking for a shift lever, still need to sand the knob to scale


Bonnet from a Monogram '32 roadster, trimmed to fit (1/24th scale)


As it sits at the moment.

Thanks guys.

Small update. I realised after looking at the last pic posted that I did not like the large gap between the motor and the recessed firewall. So I decided to make up a stock '32 one for it.


Some of the details are not quite right and the mouldings are a bit large, but it looks much better now.

Nice start and sunject Steve. The firewall may not be 100% accurate but it looks darn good to me.

Let me know how you get on turning down the sewing pin shifter knob please. I've tried before and found them way to hard.

Got some colour on the body, it's Desert Rose autmotive lacquer.



The chassis will be the same colour when I've finished messing with it. I'm thinking of doing the motor and wheels red.
Very slow progress here as it is not a good time of year for painting in southern Victoria. Single digit temps prevail at the moment.

It's looking good Steve although the colour description doesn't seem to fit to what looks like metallic Grey!!!

I can see faint hints of rose color in the highlights.

I assume the color is supposed to be like the car from the first post but even then I'm not so sure. Did you take the pic with black and white settings Steve?

The paint has hints of a reddish purple in it. I'm hoping that the clear coat will bring it out more. It's one of those paints that sprays matt and then is clear coated. Sunlight pics should help as well.

Dennis, the first pic was just a general inspiration, as the look of it really grabbed my attention. I thought about replicating the colour, but I'm working with what I have in my stockpile.

Go with red wheel & engine. Good contrast with the Desert Rose.

Had a break in the Winter weather this week, managed to get some painting done.

Sprayed a couple more coats on the body, painted the wheels & engine Tamiya X7 acrylic red, interior is Gunze flat red acrylic.

Very nice Steve. The red will be a nice contrast with the exterior.

It's looking good Steve. I think you need a blackwash in the wheels holes though. It would really make them pop.

That's a novel use for old aerosol cans too.

Thanks guys.

Al, I'm thinking of opening up the holes from behind, that will help. Also considering painting the hubs same colour as the suspension parts, probably satin black.
Glad you like my paint stands, a bit of recycling.

I did get some clear on 3 bodies yesterday (including this one), may get some sunlinght shots later today. Although it's very tempting to go for a ride before it returns to winter tomorrow (17c today, 10c and rain tomorrow).

Some pics of this weeks progress.
The airbrush went into over drive thursday, clear coats on all these.


The clear did not come out as well as I'd hoped on this


Inside shot


Outside shots




I think I'll throw some more clear at next fine day I get.

Steve is the back of the body going to sit where it now? Looks a big funny to me ebing able to see right through that gap.
