I finally got it done - it was in my drawer for like a year so i finally got around to it. it was a tyco ford coupe body with top smashed in - took top off and this is my first time doing a custom convertible job. I dont think i ever see a tyco version.. tell me what you think. i need a full body driver to fit in there i dont have any..

Now i have a new project on afx ford model a body... i am having hard time with it to fit on tyco chassis but getting there so stay tuned.. :)

I volunteer as driver. I meet the full bodied requirment. LOL

That's a pretty smooth 'vert Wes. Nicely done. Where'd you steal the wheels and groovy white walls? Are they silicones? Me want! BH

GB, Great idea! I know Preiser makes the guy sitting on bench reading the newspaper. Cut off the newspaper, insert steering wheel, and glue his butt into that ford. Varoooom !

Sweet, Wes!
Now I know what I can do with that goofy glow-40 ford, eh! I love the color!:thumbsup:

If you find yourself with more than one of those sitting guys, please keep me in mind, yeah?! I am going to need one too, hey!

What else have you got rolling around your bench, eh? Lets see them!

Nice job Wes!
I have seen those '40 Fords and never bothered to pick one up.....
(Just didn't like it...)
But your custom changes my mind...

Oh man!
It's pretty hard to believe this is your first custom after looking at the pics!

What a brilliant job! I really love it!

I did one over a decade ago--but it can't hold a flame to this one...

Your choice of colour and the wheel tire combo is perfect!
And that baby really shines--what a great paint job!

My hat's off to you Sir! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:



Cheers..
