Just might be my favorite of the group. Love the color combo and striping. Thumbs Up

Again you have made some nice authentic looking detail touches, well done.  Is this from the original Ala Kart double pack kit?  Cheers

 Thank you, Guys! I built this one quite some time ago. The original Ford color I was going for is called Rose Beige. I bought a Ditzler color chart and looked for something close. I ended up spraying a Floquil Railroad color, 130081 Earth, which is flat. I sprayed a gloss clear over that. The trim is Testors 1133 Light Brown gloss, strait from the bottle. These days I use my airbrush. I like to custom mix the colors. Typically I'll take a printed photograph and put some dabs of paint on until I have the color I want. They change a little as they dry, so it takes a few tries. With Model A's, some of the colors are so dark that I don't really want an exact match to the color chip. Better to the eye if you're matching what it looks like on the car in bright sunlight.

I lack the tools required to mix paints these days . I've mixed Automotive Paint Colors from Charts / formulas . I lack also the good eye required to do this work . Kudos to your skills . Thanx ..
