I showed the boxes for the original kits which are considered collectors items and priced accordingly. I did not use these kits but combined a later release of the roadster with a resin repop of the panel delivery body from a company called “Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland”. The original kits were released by MPC & not available right now except on the second hand market.
It is a 1933 Chevrolet that has been retro’d to a 1931 model.
Some of the modifications include:
Spare tire mount changed from duals recessed in the fenders to a single RH external mount.
Moveable hood vents changed to vertical louvers.
Canvas top added by shooting a heavy coat of primer, pressing down a paper kitchen towel while the paint is wet, then overspraying with black paint.
Scratch built cargo bulkhead with screen.
Scratch built cargo. Those are supposed to be rolled up carpets.
Model Master enamels were used.
The livery was done with dry transfers borrowed from the railroad guys.
Something a little different. Hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for looking.
