I was surprised to discover that the body is two castings,
that screw together with two screws.

This would make a two-tone paint job easier,
but I plan to do a single color.

Regards, Dave L.

Ertl's 1923 delivery van is a nice model.

I bought this because there would not be a lot of promotions to remove.

I've darkened the grill with a marker,
and I will paint the fenders, top, and wheels black for an easy project.

Regards, Dave L.
 

P.S. - I did touch up the radiator where I missed a spot.

I was happy with the N-scale bridge girders,
used for the bed of the 1928 Chevy Commercial,
and got to thinking I might try it with an Ertl Model T.

I had an unpainted bridge on hand and used it.

I removed the sides,
cut one into two equal lengths,
and glued to a .040" floor.

I've added an end to the cab end of the bed,
and now I'll let it dry over night.

Regards, Dave L.

This was a simple project,

that now just needs painting and gluing in place.

A really nice 1930 Ford Model A roadster from Liberty Classics just arrived.

Nice detail includes a "stickered" trunk, dash gauges, painted spoke wheels,
and an opening rumble seat that hides the coin slot.

Promotions appear to be painted,
so they should be easily removed with Testor's Plastic Cement.

It is a nice addition to the collection.

Regards, Dave L.

The promotions came off nicely,

in about five seconds with the Testor's Cement. 

This car is ready for the layout !

Motormax makes 1:24 Ford Model Ts,
in two versions of the Roadster, tops up and down.

I am not happy with the blue color.
These are stated as 1925 models.

I am trying to research Ford's colors for that year.

Starting in 1914 black was the only color,
but colors became available along the way.

If anyone has information I would like to hear.

Thanks, Regards, Dave L.

The Motormax Model T, on the left,

is about the same size as the Ertl model on the right.

The big difference is in the wheels.

Motormax also makes the T touring
in both top up and top down versions.

I don't have a top up version to show yet,
as they are a bit elusive, and expensive.

:sad:
