Another '32 Ford
Posted by Manifoldhead on Saturday, June 27, 2020 8:55 PM

Hi All,


This is my third model. I went with the classic black with flames. This is my first wired engine and embossed carpet (which you cannot see). The paint is OK, not quite as shiny as I would have liked. I put the deacals on last...I was afraid to mess it up with clear coat on top. Next time I will make that jump. The decals on the white walls were tricky and there are a few tiny wrinkles.

It's my first hot rod...a really fun build, no worries about what is original.


Overall I'm very happy with it conserdering my experience.


Feedback welcome, good or bad.

Looks great, no matter if its your third or 100th model. Nicely painted and assembled well. Keep up the good work, Manifoldhead! Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

Thanks all....starting to get intot the swing of it. I started thinking I would like the factory stock builds, but the hot rod thing is really fun.

G'day manifoldhead.  No way you should receive any bad comments, your 5 window looks really good.  Clean and tidy build, traditional flames, wide whitewalls, wired hemi, she ticks all the boxes for a neat rod.  Keep 'em coming.  Cheers.

This is one of the great classic kits that rewards a careful, methodical build out of the box like yours. The yellow flames look great against the glossy black and the step up to a wired ingnition adds another dimension of detail. Also, the colors you chose for the interior complement the exterior scheme perfectly. I'm really enjoying your series of posts and the approach your taking to developing your skills. And yes indeed, hot rods can be addictive!

Superb build. '32's seem to be pretty popular.

Cool looking '32. Nice clean build. Love the flames. Engine detailing looks good, wires nicely draped. Very good build. Be proud of it.
