  17. Any tips on assembling a roadster body mate? Did you start from the back forwards? How did you know where everything went as far as quarters, braces ect with the doors off the cowl?

    the A B C's of a real hot rod. thanks for that
     
  23. Better check back in the box it came in, looks like they forgot your instructions.

    You going with the colours recomended on the box or are you going freelance?

    All that picture needs is some plastic pipe between all the parts and it would look like a scale model ready for assembly. I recomend testors glue and paint for the old school touch.

    Have fun.

    Hallo

    I'm thinking about doing a scratch built roadster. And in that regart I have some quastians.

    Is a Model A body built to come apart like that? Is it possible to put a name on all the panels In the picture and send it to me? What year is it? 28/29?
    By the way nice work, cool built and any update?

    Well im back at it again! Got some stuff done, trying to work on it every free moment I get. The warm weather is back so now i'll be making a lot more progress!

    Im working on getting the chassis mocked up. Installing the f1 cross member, leaving the wishbones unsplit, run brakes and what not, then on to finish the body. More pictures to come.
