Another Lindberg '32 Pick-Up Rod.
Posted by PatW on Friday, April 19, 2019 8:40 AM

I was sent this to save................

So added yellow paint(to contrast the black already on it)seats, exhausts, wheels/tyres, sun visor, and as my stash of V8's are too big, I scratchbuilt a bonnet and sides, and moved the headlights to the top of the front wings..

What an improvement!  That yellow really pops.  What is in the bed? 

Thanks,

John

Thanks guys. Well in the Pick-Up bed? When we had glass delivered for my cabin and a greenhouse all of the sheets of glass have sticky green rubber pads between each one to try and stop breakages.

So I peeled them off and kept them for another day, that was about 7 years ago and the day came today.

Yes Jim your dead right! I'm buying more of these 'already started' firstly because the price of new kits is prohibitive/expensive and we shouldn't chuck things away that can turn out OK in the right hands, all we need is more imagination to take that risk, if that's the word!

It's great but it deserves an engine lol ! Fitting ( in more ways than one if you want the side panels in tact) would be a hot rod flathead with aluminum heads and twin carbs, maybe from a later Ford kit or Merc. Someone on the forum I bet has one.

Course that's my view and it's your model ! Looks great anyway.

Thanks oldermodelguy, your dead right, but we don't see many older American car kits here in the UK and to import them costs around $27! 

Luckily the guy who sent me the unfinished/parts of kit is in the UK.
