1940 Ford Convertible
« on: April 02, 2021, 05:01:12 PM »
Okay fellas think i'm finally getting this photo thing down with some help.  The car pictured here is from one of our club themes.  This is the Monogram Pro modeler 1st issue built entirely box stock.  Paint is MCW brown, convertible top is Tamiya Root Beer.  Note the engine is in correctly I had a bad camera angle for the photo.  Hope you like.  More to come when I get this all figured out!

That's one gorgeous Ford right there! Well done!
I appreciate people that actually build and post models.

Only a true "Ford guy" could build something that beautiful. Excellent work.
When I win the Powerball I will switch to the real ones.

Many thanks for all the kind words.  This is one of my favorite models with no drama in the building process.
Thanks again.

Love the old flathead 40 fords! I've got two real one's in the garage. Nothing like a 40 Ford- great work!
