Really cool old style hot rod.

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

Very nice, love the colour combo. However, I may be wrong, but I really think those "ribbed" bumpers are from a -37 Desoto

Thanks maniacalmodeler. My initial idea was to woody the white section each side, but when I took the masking tape off I left it as a two tone. The wheels are AMT Meyers Manx but I don't remember where the white insert whitewalls/tyres came from.

Thanks chromecop. I took the bumpers from the Mercury kit as I didn't like them on that,  plus I've never seen a 37 Desoto, so can't comment on that.

I've never seen a '39 Ford with a two-tone paint scheme.  Looks great!

The bumpers are identified as being Desoto bumpers in the details section of the description of the kit. It doesn't state what year, but since the '37s are the ones most popular.... But there is a company that produces a reproduction with that rib and flute style that comes in a extra long piece that you're supposed to cut to whatever length you want and bend and shape it as desired.

There is more to the state north of San Francisco other than trees.

Nice color combo. The effect of The tutone paint and wide whites is perfect.

Cool

Thanks guys. As I said before the bumpers came from an AMT 1939 Mercury kit. As we don't have American cars here I have no knowledge of them I just take the info from each kit I build.
