Thanks maniacalmodeler. I'm watching your '51 Fleetline chop as well as I have never done that before and you are doing such a great job to show us all just how it's done!

I have this kit and have been considering building it. Now I'm pretty sure I will! I like the one with the sandy tires as well!

Nice save! Looks awesome! I was wondering if those rear wheels and tires came with the kit?

Cheers Trevor, I love saving these rather than see them thrown away. There's far too much plastics being discarded to ruin the planet.

Yes, good save. Looks cool, Patrick.

Great save … an excellent display of modeling skills. Looks perfect in yellow sans driver. Very cool!

My second one of these Dave Deal creations. Bought as a glue bomb over ebay UK, with some sort of glue holding various parts together. The wheels had the axles broken after being stuck in the wheels backs and not matter how much enamel thinner was used I had to drill out the axle stubs. Seeing the original artwork from Dave on the box in yellow I chose that colour after sourcing various bits broken or missing, one of which was the aerial missing and the bendy exhaust broken (get out the candle to bend another). The aerial was made from copper wire wound round a small diameter alloy tube.

Showing the difference in tyre diameters and 1/24 tyre decals at the front to 1/12 at the rear.
