AMT '32 Ford Roadster

Replica (sort of) of Lee Titus' May 1959 Hot Rod Magazine cover car. This build was started almost 20 years ago. The Revell and Monogram kits are more accurate, but I hate to throw anything away!

Models by Blue Moose

I've been admiring this guy's builds for quite some time on the Spotlight Hobbies (Formerly Hobby Heaven) message board. http://www.spotlighthobbies.com Unfortunately, because he had to borrow space on a friend's server, The photos would appear only fleetingly. His stuff is way too nice for that, so I have been saving all of the pics I could get my hands on, and with his kind permission, I am posting them here for all to enjoy. Here is a link to his website. http://www.bikelab.net/models/home.html
