Thanx fellas!

I think this will be the final update for this project. I managed to destroy a photo-etch grill which required ordering a replacement. Fortunately I found one on eBay for a good price and faster shipment than directly from Model Car Garage. It came today and I was able to complete the front and rear details. As mentioned earlier, the grill shell from MCG is the 4” chop version. The headlights and shocks are from the Revell Rat Roaster version of the Deuce kits. The taillights are from the 5-window Revell Deuce with p/e surrounds from Model Car Garage. The 1959 California license plate is homemade with a p/e license plate surround. This leaves only the windshield, front crossbar and coolant hoses to do. Then some final cleanup and on to the “studio” for the ”beauty shots”. Hoping for completion this weekend…

Below are a couple of (somewhat blurry –sorry…) workbench snaps.

Thanx for lookin’,
B.

She looks great B.
Are you going to scrub the tyres in with wet & dry?
I ask because if it's a show rod then brand new unworn tyres would be in keeping (although you'll get sick of people suggesting you scuff them up) so you could leave them as they are if there are no nasty seams.

The model is now completed. Below is some Photoshop Phun. The basic pics were taken without benefit of a tripod so they’re not real sharp, but with some admittedly heavy handed processing I thought they caught the flavor of the build pretty well. Tomorrow I’ll take more formal presentation photos and post them.

In the meantime thanx to all for following along!
B.
