1936 Ford Street Rod
January 25, 2015 in Cars & Motorcycles
AMT 1936 Ford. 1/25th. Kit from the 60’s that has recently been rereleased. Latest release version has globs of molded plastic on the bottom side like a resin slush mold that needed clean up before any building could start. a couple days worth of sanding, filling & more sanding. Frame & exhaust was molded to the floor pan so all that was cut loose & a new floor pan created. The frame is pinned to the floor so it is removable. Front & rear suspension, drivetrain & steering was adapted from the Phantom Vicky kit. Small block Ford engine is from the Revell ’32 Ford kit. Engine is wired, new pulley & belts scratched, radiator sectioned & radiator hoses scratched. Body has a #scale inch section tapered to the front giving it a built in rake. Running boards removed. The interior is pretty much stock with aftermarket gauges. Door panels had to be cut down because of the body section. Duval windshield is a soft metal with Bare Metal foil. This was salvaged from my parts box.
Paint is Testors One Coat lacquer decanted & shot thru a external feed airbrush. Metalflake was too thick for my internal mix guns.
Thanks for looking. If you want to see more of the build process it’s posted at WIP.
Hope you enjoy it.
Steve those are the Douglas packs from the Phantom Vicky kit. The exhaust & tail pipes are scratch built from the old Auto World flexible plastic. Still flexible from the 60’s when I got it.
