Some of you might be familiar with the term “Rat Rod”. These are bare bone hot rods in various forms of construction or destruction. Mine is a Mouse Rod because it is somewhere around 1/32nd scale as opposed to the 1/25th scale used most often by the auto modelers.
The kit is a Revell Highway Pioneers issue first molded by Gowland & Gowland in 1954.
It appears to be a cross between a Ford Model “A” & a ’32 Model “B” with a flathead engine.
Built this in 1 day for a club contest. Everything was free-hand brush painted with acrylics as my unsteady hand on the wheels/tires attest.
