1936 Cord
Posted by arcturus87 on Sunday, June 5, 2022 2:33 AM

This is a pretty old flat box Monogram issue. For its age, its a pretty good kit. Nice detail and everything fit nicely. 
I started this one about 12 year ago. But messed the paint up, dipped it in stripper, but the paint didn't remove very well, so I left it. I then lost the light covers because these flat boxes are very flimsey . I found the light covers again without realising it until one day I decided open the box and thought "Oh , I seem to have both light covers, when did I find them ?" I have lost the trunk handle though. 
So resumed building it as I have no built pre 40's cars.

Hmmm;

      Now, that's a model of one of the quintessensual Autos of it's time. Nice Job!

I look for those Monogram classic kits at every swap meet.  Building their Duesenberg SJ now.  They were great kits, especially considering when they were first offered.

Yessir!

    I do believe those kits that Monogram put out and the ones from MPC( Before and after "Gangbusters") were some of the greatest Classic car Kits! Another one, often overlooked was the Pyro/Life Like-48 Lincoln! ( Before and After, Chrome was offered.)

Nice!  I have picked up a lot of the old Renwal/Pyro/Lifelike and Monogram kits.  How else to build cars in 1/48 and 1/32.

Outstanding work. Both the front and rear bumpers are separate parts from the main body. How did you get them to blend so well? Did you fill with putty or do they just fit really, really well?

Couldn't agree more. I'm eye balling two myself, the MPC Chrysler and Monogram Packard touring car. The Gangbust Chrysler is out again, can buy that new. The Packard I keep running into the boat tail, not looking for the boat tail. Also decades ago I built the 27 Lincoln roadster, I'd like to find the touring car. I've built the dual cowl Duesenberg  back around the same time, like to find the roadster. Both those cars are decades old now and could use a little refurb.

Meanwhile I already have too many builds to finish up, both in 1/25 and 1/16 lol. So this is a really quiet search so to speak.

I really enjoy a good "out of the ordinary" build and this one is certainly no exception to that rule. You really brought alot to the table with this one in regards to over all look, paint job and detail work. Photography is just immaculate as well. Great work.

Thats a beauty. That version (812 IIR) of the Cord was supercharged and front wheel drive. Another feature was the flip up head light covers. Long before the rzepka joint front wheel drive axels were designed the connections on the Cord front wheel drive axels were like you would find on the power take off connection on a tractor. Amelia Earhart had a yellow one. Again, thats a great job.
