Slammed Customized '49 Ford Coupe in Gray Primer
I started this project intending it for the primer CBP on the TRaK board but kept thinking I might go for a glossy paint job. In the end it told me to stay in primer, so here it is. AMT '49 Coupe slammed 7+ scale inches all around, mainly kit parts except for the following changes:
Chassis: lowered 7.5 scale inches front and rear using offset spindles at the front and lowering blocks at the rear. Bodywork: Modelhaus resin '51 Ford customized grill with single plain bar (bullets removed) and smoothed bumpers. Frenched headlights. Hood, deck and doors shaved. Scratch built visor from styrene strip and rod. AMT Kit custom rear rolled pan, license plate molding,bumpers and taillights. Scratch built exhaust tips from flattened and shaped aluminum tubing. Kit supplied spotlights. Wheels and Tires: Parts box sourced front white walls, Revell '53 Cadillac bullet sombrero hubcaps, AMT kit rear tires with hand painted whitewalls. The wheels are from my parts box, the worst I could find since they'll never be seen... Interior: Modified from AMT kit with scratch built bolsters and homemade decals for leopard skin patterned portions. Paint: Duplicolor Gray Primer Sealer. Interior finished in in Duplicolor Yellow and Tamiya Semi Gloss black. Interior upholstered surfaces cleared with testors Dullcote.
