32 Ford 5-Window Coupe
Posted by mrmike on Wednesday, May 02, 2018 9:19 AM

This is my project for the Classic Plastic Model Club Exposition "Club Challenge" '48 Or Older Street Rods.  I am building a '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe with full fenders and the 392 CI Hemi engine with steel wheels, trim rings, and hubcaps and wide whitewall tires.  I am going to attempt painting the wide whites with an acrylic flat white paint through my Badger Universal 360 Airbrush.  My kit is the Revell '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe #85-4228.

My body paint will be Testors One Coat Lacquer Lime Ice #18350.  The interior will be white with embossing powder for carpets and painted with Polly Scale Burlington North Green.

So far, I got the basic Hemi assembled and ready for some Mopar Street Hemi Orange Engine Enamel and the body has been sanded for mold lines and ready for primer.

I might remove the airbags and chrome the rear axle and drive shaft.

I had painted the 392 CI Hemi with Hemi Orange Engine Enamel, but I changed my mind since 392 CI Hemis were painted gold or a similar color.  I went with the gold since it will match with the Lime Ice better and the engine would be more period correct.  

I'll be using a M.A.D. pre-wired distributor.

Thanks Kevin!  I really like the MAD pre-wired distributors and with MAD showing up at NNL East, I can get a few for my builds and not have to worry about shipping charges.
