1940 Ford hearse
Posted by arcturus87 on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 7:49 AM

This is an old R&R transkit. Its supposed to fit the AMT ford Sedan delivery, but when I put my old one with is, the hood didn't fit the fenders, and was a touch to wide for the body, so I cut the front fenders off my old AMT kit. Maybe it was supposed to fit the Revell 40 ford. Who knows.

The trans kit came with extended fenders, body extended interior tub and chassis and rear door. The rest, you have to find a donor. 

It went together ok, except for the hood issue. Not a bad effort from the sometime dreaded former R&R.

Very nice.  I'm not familliar with R&R but that sounds like limited run garage kit problems.   Regardless looks like you tackled the issues.  Nice finish on a subject we certainly don't see very often.  Well done.

Thanks,

John
