      Scratch Built Build in Progress

      I always wanted to build a Big Deuce as a total stocker- so here it goes. the fellow who did the model 18 roadster did an incredible job on the chassis. mine will have no where near the detail. but up top should be pretty nice. I located a 5 window body [second] from the late Mike Gradis. by the way he was a great guy and always went out of his way to help me with large scale parts from his big inventory.
      I will use his body. Kelsey Hayes wheels from the Hot 1932 FORD  Standard 5 window coupe   1/8 scale Canary.[had to find 3 kits for the set of 5 wheels] and a Flathead in resin 1932 FORD  Standard 5 window coupe   1/8 scale from John Hockney. lots of scratch building and adaptations will be involved.........

    Thanks Roger- I used thin sheet aluminium available at the hardware store. by the way I have been watching your Continental build and may I say that you Sir are the Most AMAZING Builder here- right up there with Manuel Olive and Conti. actually your proportions on the cars body may be even better than theirs
