Tim Boyd On-Line How-To #5: Building Revell's '48 Ford Chopped Custom Coupe

In my fifth On-Line How-To (available for viewing starting 17 February 2012), I show how I built the model featured in my kit review of Revell's new 1948 Ford Chopped Custom Coupe that appears in the February, 2012 issue of Scale Auto magazine (see page 48). I also give detailed instructions on using the fadeway fenders included in the kit. Thanks for looking....TIM

5. More engine shots....most of the components here are different than the hot rodded Flathead contained in Revell's first 1948 Ford kit, their Pro-Modeler convertible.

    Oh my goodness.  There's going to be one problem with this kit, I can see.  I won't be able to afford one (out of work).  What an incredible engine!  If the builder wires and plumbs the engine, and replace the belt, this will be a show-stopper!
