Custom '41 Ford Coupe WIP update 10-21
Posted by maniacalmodeler on Sunday, October 14, 2018 11:03 AM

So this is the project I started and then was "sidetracked" with the Woody Mercury. This one combines the grille of the AMT '41 Ford Woody with the body of the Revell '48 Ford Coupe. Other than changing the grille and swiping the rear bumper brackets from the '48 Ford Police Coupe kit this is going to be a box stock build. Of course I'll probably modify the suspension to lower the model a little bit. The exterior color is going to be gloss black. Here's the photo's and thanks for looking!

That sure beats fighting with the whole front end trying to get it lined up straight .

Good work .

I built a '41 around four years ago. I swapped the whole front clip because of the differences in the fenders and hood. IIRC, I had to narrow the '41 hood slightly to fit it to the cowl.

Thank you, oldnslow, Plowboy, modelcarjr, and aussiemuscle308! 

I needed to lengthen the nose of the hood a little. I glued some plastic strip to the nose of the hood and filed it down a little and then added some bondo and sanded it to shape. The body is in primer now and all the body work is finished. I glued the bumper brackets in place to be sure everything would line up. Thanks for looking!
