32 Ford Tudor - COMPLETE
Posted by Tyler62990 on Friday, October 28, 2016 11:53 PM

This is my take on Revell's 32 Ford Sedan. This was done as a 7 day build on Facebook, but I had second thoughts about rushing it and ended up taking about 11. All in all, it was a fun build, but the headlights, front suspension and radiator/grill assembly proved to be a bit of a challenge for some reason. That being said, keeping the fingerprints and dust off during final assembly was the worst part of the build lol.  Anyway, here's the details:

Kit supplied Flathead wired and plumbed

Wire wheels dechromed and sprayed to match body color

40 Ford dash

Steering wheel from Revell 29 Model A

Paint is decanted Tamiya TS-14 Black sprayed over Tamiya primer, buffed and polished with Meguiar's products.

As you can see, I didn't go too crazy with the modifications. Despite the few and far between frustrations, this really is an awesome kit right out of the box and a pleasure to build.

Thanks for looking!!!

A very nice subtle and restrained style on this build.  Excellent work.

WOW, that is really nice!! Most of those types of models are Hot Rods with mag wheels, bright colors, no fenders, newer V8 engines, etc. I like your cars because they look like stock cars.

Great looking Deuce Tudor. My dad had a Blue 32 Tudor in thge late 70's when he was in Early Times that I loved so these cars are my favorite. Love what you did with yours.
