    I'm currently working on a much better 32 ford 5 window coupe body. It should be available mid to late February. I fixed the firewall, added drip rails, replaced the rear window, reshaped the quarter windows, fixed the saggy trunk lid up near the sailpanel (actually replaced the trunk lid with a roadster kit lid), fixed the sunkin upper cowl, added a soft top, filled the pinholes, added the die stamped marking in the fender wells, and fixed the belt line reveal because they were square and just way too pronounced.

    All looks good Jim... my 5w from George has the too narrow rear quarter window. Love the top insert!

  4. Jim, your 5w is looking a lot better than the ones they sell on ebay. That's why I haven't bought one. But I might be up for one of yours, although the big deuce kits are getting really expensive!

    Thanks man. I want to add the leather insert before I cast it but I was also thinking what if someone wanted a filled roof? So I may offer it like it is and sell the black leather to install.

    at 1:5 scale, this is approaching "real car" size, but the details are phenomenal :

    I'd like to build at least one of these, but the prices now are just stupid.

    There are just a handful of artisans in the world that can fabricate models like these by hand, and the finished models go for amazing amounts. But where else can you get a model like this? I'm sure their clients are more than satisfied with the results.
