Hi Guys, I was told about this site by a fellow hot rodder and, as I also build models, felt this was a good place to start using this forum.

I have posted three pictures of some '32 Fords I have built. The first is a from the box Revell kit, the second has had a lot of mods done to it and the third is kit-bashed from three kits. Enjoy!







I'm off work this week so I'll spend some time looking around this site - looks like I'm gonna enjoy it! :happy:

Cheers,

Jim

Hi Jim, nice to see you over here from the IPMS site - bit more to be looking at over here for us I think. For those who don't know, there is I believe more than one competition winner there plus at least one magazine feature car:D

Welcome aboard, wow, nice clean builds Jim. Like them all.

Can you give s all a bit more info on the paint used on the fenderless 3 window? Chromaflair or something similar I guess, where's it from, is it hard to apply?

Cheers
Mike

A worthy magazine car! even though im not a great lover of IFS's on early iron, i have to say the front end is a realy nicely done modification.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the welcome and comments about the models.

Cycolac Fan- Voyager scanned my article in above which may answer your question. But in case you find the print hard to read the paint is Halfords Primer, Alclad gloss black basecoat, Alcald prismatic maple and cleared with Zero 2-pack. It was then polished using a polishing set, and finished with compounds (Novus 2) and wax before being finished with Novus 1. Once I worked out a combination that didn't react with the resin body and each other it wasn't too much hassle to get the finish.

Cheers,

Jim
