    I finished this custom Matchbox '33 Ford coupe, my second build on this casting, in Tamiya Mica Blue over a Tamiya metalflake gold basecoat, with Vallejo Model Color leather interior, scrap sandpaper carpet with hand-painted white heel pads and scratchbuilt stick shifter, removed door handles, and detailed silver dashboard/black and silver steering wheel. There is also gas tank and battery detail in the trunk that will likely never be seen again due to the trunk being cast shut.

    I styled this after both 1950s/60s era show rods, and 1930s/40s era European streamliner sports cars/race cars, and I'm sure it shows well.

    You're moving fast, Chris. This looks great with your mods. I haven't drilled one of these apart yet (I've already stashed about 5 of them, afraid that MBX may "lose" the tool or something) so I didn't know there was gas tank and battery detail inside. Interesting.

      Thanks. I've also got a phaeton conversion of a 2000s issue Demon/Li'l Coffin, an Auburn boattail speedster converted into a Glenn Pray replicar from about 1970, and a Porsche 356 Speedster I started ages ago, lost the windshield of, only to find it again, in the works.

        You've got some good old classic cars in the works, I've seen a couple you posted tonight.

          And I'm hoping to find the new HW Hudson Hornet and gold 944 Turbo at Dollar General soon, to give those my special treatment
