The local model club had their contest theme this year as "Deuce Days in Scale", coinciding with the "Deuce Days", 1200 plus 1930s cars (Mostly 32s) all in one place. But i digress. This is what I built:

First, I cut out the doors

Then I did primary painting using Tamiya spray cans

Vallejo "Environmental Effects" rust was painted on to give it a gritty, pre-restored look

A second layer or green was airbrushed on, using a Vallejo Dark Green. Various shades of Vallejo "rust" were rubbed in to give that aged, abandoned car look.

The ramp and roosting boxes were built using basswood.


Too late I discovered they had said "Coupe", not coop.

Oh well, my 1932 Ford Deuce Chicken Coop.

 ;D    absolutely brilliant !   
both in concept and execution, a set of genius ideas.
the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady
take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances. 
wow, its like freefalling into the Geofront

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Decals my @r$e!


Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
