Sweet T (sorry, I had to do that), but that is one really nice looking rendition.  Not really garish and looks like it would be fun to drive.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Nice job.  I've built that kit several times over the years.  One thing I have never been ablemto do is get the trailer to stay attached as it seems out of balance.  The best i've been able to do is add weight to the front of the box on the bottom.

I like your color choice.

Thanks TarheelRick, now is that Sweet T or Sweet Tea as we like here in the UK!  Thanks for your comments. I all of my 60 years of building I've never built any form of the Ford Model T, isn't that amazing?

A fun build, a very nice kit all round.

Yes Larry, I had the same problem initially, so I make sure the lid is as far forward as it will go.
