The Boyz have decided their next build will be more of a classic like them...........

The 1959 1/32 Gunze will give them that starting point.

Will be powerful and fast with a Hornby NASCAR chassis and power plant!!

That's looking the part already with the chrome hubcaps on the wheels. Also, the 49 sitting below it, what kit is that from please?

Mr. Wobble, the 1949 Ford Coupe kit is a old Lindberg 1/32. I see them on Ebay all the time for less than $20.

This one is powered by a Hornsby Audi TT cast away chassis - power plant on NASCAR hubs and tires. Has a Parts by Park 1/24 air cleaner and injectors for exhaust pipes.

Been thru many "laps" and repainted several times as I got bored!

The "baby moons" on the Fairlane 500 are also 1/24 Parts by Park hub caps, that become "full caps" on the 1/32 wheels!!

Now that the Boyz have applied the Tamiya "Intermediate US Navy Blue" paint they are noodling what the contrasting color will be.

The "US Navy Blue" sprayed out in a dull cote look which they are kind of liking!

Keeping with the Navy paint theme the Boyz two-toned the 500 with Tamiya "Navy Blue" and got out that fine silver sharpie and started to attach the chrome accents to this big piece of American art!!
