Here is my first one since then. Its a 57 chevy nomad gasser with some added on rot and rust issues for customization. Let me here your thoughts and what you think. Im currently starting on a 32 ford coupe with a stretched frame and chopped roof which I will post either when im done or maybe as I go, what you you guys like to see? The progress or finished product?

    I'm preeeetty sure thats a '57 ford wagon. :) I started doing a few with no paint at all with my 7 y.o. son, after hanging up my x-acto for about 10 years. Its fun to go back to basics.

    Looks great! Just wondering what you were going for? Abandoned gasser? Just found and ready to race? Either way the nice chrome on the grill, moon tank, and wheels, needs to be rusted up a bit to stay with the theme of the rest of it. Glad to hear you have found something to help you! Not criticizing you by the way, just some suggestions.

    "So, the wagons been sitting in a box, on a shelf in the closet for the past 37 years. Dug it out from under some dirty underwear and socks..." The `57 Ford Wagon Gasser closet find story begins! Seriously though, Cool model, some awesome skills you have there!

    I changed the title RIGHT AFTER I posted it because I did notice I put chevy, but should be changed by now, it says ford in the title
     
  12. Got ya. I was just reading the post where it said Chevy and thought I'd have some fun with it. Hope you took what I said as humor.
