1932 Ford Street Rod

I added another car to my model collection and it was built right out-of-the-box. The car was also called a Classic Cruzer by Monogram.

The kit had a “T” shirt decal included so I wondered how to use it. After cutting around all the decals to eliminate the extra clear film I just laid the “T-Shirt” decal down on the car seat, then moved different parts of the shirt so it looked like it was just tossed there by the driver and/or a passenger. I noticed that the shirt could be worn by a man and/or a lady.

I used some left-over lacquer paint for the exterior of the car body, then used my Tamiya paints for all the other parts including the inside of the car. I also spruced up the engine with some spark-plug’s and wires as I planed on leaving the side engine compartment door’s open.

This was an easy model to build with no fit problems but remember that you have to make sure that all 4 wheels are the same diameter so when your finished, the car sits on all “FOUR WHEELS.” Enjoy…Rodney

  1. Sharp-looking car – love that color. Very nice.

  2. Nicely done! Monogram car kits are great, they are easier to build than their contemporaries (AMT and Revell notably) but still look the part.

    • I wonder if you are the “Rob Anderson” that lived in California and came to my house in San Jose, CA in the late 1980’s or in the 1990’s concerning my 1/32 scale F2G Corsair project?

      I’m in Irvine, CA now!

  3. Nice job Rodney. That looks real sharp.

  4. Very nice. I am currently fighting an AMT 55 Chevy pick up. I will get there but it won’t be this month or next………

    Start another model, then go back to it with new ideas on how to solve your problem……I do that every now and then….RJW
