AMT '40 Ford Woodie Delivery-Rides Magazine

An interesting subject as it doesn't show any 'Woodie' on the box art or in the plans or in the box! So I thought I'd add it! The front wheels were heavily fluted, which weren't very nice at all. Looking through the chrome parts there are a number of extra bits from a standard kit, so I cut the fluted area of the wheels out, replaced that with a piece of plasticard with a hole in the centre to give the correct offset on the axle ends. Using the separate chromed rear halves of the rims, opening out the hole and adding spare domed hubcaps for the smooth look.

  

The paint is Plasti-Kote Mellatic Blue.

Yeah, certainly one of the more wierd kit names. I really like the wood work on the body. How did you do it?

Thanks Bainford. Make up the frame with thin, narrow Evergreen Strip then fill the space with woodgrain decal like so..........

Painting the strip a suitable colour after laying it onto the side of the model.

Looks good. Did you make the wood grain decals?

Yes I did a Google image search of woodgrain and copied those onto a Windows page, where you can increase or decrease the size. I then print a page onto ordinary A4 paper to gauge the size I need for 1/24-1/25 kits. When the size is right print onto white backed decal paper and seal with two coats (let dry between each one) of either gloss or matt clear.
